Kuzco got his summer haircut yesterday. I took inspiration from @Raindrops and Misha for the groomer (see below - @Raindrops, let me know if you would prefer I link to the thread). Turned out well, though I think Misha pulls it off better 😄 We’re going to the beach in early May, so I wanted easy clean up and less fluff to hold the heat.

I searched for terrier cuts, retriever cuts, and short cuts. Anyone else have short cut (or summer cut) inspiration pics for others out there?

Quick note for other Newbies ☺

*Schedule early for grooms (note to self too 🤷‍♀️😆).

Especially at the beginning of summer. Kuzco’s past groomer, and others previously recommended, were all booked (some for over a month!). Thankfully I ended up with a good one that I may continue to use since she’s closer to my new place. I’m still new to grooming/poodles/Kuzco, so I didn’t know how long I wanted to wait before the next cut and it was getting a little overdue with the scheduling snafu. Hoping to figure it out and start prebooking/getting a regular appt haha.

Misha (aka my constant inspiration 😄)

That lime green is a revelation! I didn't watch the Oscar's, but I feel like I watched the highlight reel from the red carpet.
Thank you! ☺ I love the bandanas and bows that come with grooming. I agree this one photographs very well with Kuzco’s coat. I’ll have to keep that in mind for future clothing purchases 😁 (how I love Kuzco’s willingness to wear these things!)

Those poodle feet were made for digging!
YES! Kuz doesn't dig at my house, but he loves digging at my boyfriends. In fact, he dug the morning of his groom 🤦‍♀️ I apologized to the groomer for the muddy paws haha.

the last picture is so goofy that is made me laugh. what a great cut!
That is 100% Kuzco - I see this goofy walk regularly 😆

No matter the haircut, @Raindrops’ Misha is an inspiration! His proper structure and his mom’s grooming skills make him a fantastic poodle model in every look.
I’m loving Kuzco’s new summer haircut, he looks amazing! I kept Lacey in a short retriever style clip when she was going through coat change. She didn’t pull it off quite as nicely. But it definitely elongates the legs and emphasizes a nice trim waistline!

Edit to add, I love the “outtakes pics the most!”

That’s the truth!! Misha is my poodle crush (along with @PeggyTheParti 😍).

Thank you! I love Lacey’s longer ears and top knot! She always looks so sweet and stylish :)

As for the legs - I sent pics to my mom and her response was “He’s all legs!” 😂 I was starting to wonder if he was putting on pounds or fluff though, so it’s good to see it was the latter!

It's a time saving utility cut too. No brushing required.
Yes! That’s one of the benefits - along with faster drying and easier clean up when he gets muddy 😂 Kuzco loves his current brush so much that I’ve still been running it over him once a day or so as a type of massage/back scratch though😆

I can’t wait to see Basil’s new hairdo!
