An all over one length cut that isn't so fluffy? We don't have our puppy yet, but I know I'm not going to do any show clips for our dog. I prefer a poodle with a little more curl to their hair, it's possible because I also have curly hair and don't like to brush out my curls. I also don't like the super long ears, to each their own, but not for me. My parents had poodles when I was a baby, but when their last poodle passed away we had dachshunds and basset hounds, and now we have a mutt currently, so I can't remember at all what it was like, but my mom kept Molly fairly curly, she didn't have that curly appearance. If it matters (and maybe it does because several books I've read say different coat colors have different characteristics), we'll have an apricot puppy.
