UGH I brought Pixie to the same woman who's been cutting her every 3 weeks since I took her home. Yesterday I said to take a LITTLE legnth off as it was getting unruly and I think she didn't check the guard because when I picked her up the groomer was a little sheepish "she is a little shorter than normal....."

And when i saw her, well she looks good but NO LONGER LIKE MY BABY WAAAAAH. I said to Dave now we know what she'll look like as an adult but she's only 6 months! I wanted that downy fur until her adult coat came in.

Anyway I didn't make a fuss because she does look nice and it's easier to care for but when I take her back in a month I don't think she'll be cutting any off except for her feet/sanitary areas!

The first time the fluff comes off can be a shocker, but it does reveal how nicely built poodles are! Post a picture.

She looks great!

Don't worry, she'll get a little fluffier every day.

I def was planning her in a shorter cut when she got older but she was still my fluffy downy baby and now she looks like a gawky teen to me lol.

Thanks all, she's still darling and it is much easier!

I think she looks lovely - and there is something very endearing about gangly teenagers!

I think that length is great (although I want to see her in a clean face ;) ). Her hair will grow out lightning fast, don't worry!
This is the first time I've not had them shave it! lol! She always has a shaved face but I left it fuzzy this time. I'll shave it again next time.

As a groomer from the looks of it they probably used the longest guard comb most groomer's own, so unless they did a full body hand scissor (which generally costs quite a bit more as it's more labour intensive and takes a great deal of skill especially on a puppy and puppy hair) this was probably the longest they could do. Looks like they hand scissored the legs in to leave them longer.
Maybe they could have been more clear on exactly what length to expect, but it would have been hard to leave it longer.

I like her groom that is very similar to how I kept Renn, it was easier on me, him and the groomer. now have her go shorter. But we religiously go every 4 weeks.

I don't think that is too short at all! You still have lots of 'fluff' to cuddle! And i'll be soooo much easier to keep from matting during the dreaded 'coat change' if you keep it this way until the adult coat is in!

It won't take long before her hair has grown back - but she's adorable at this length too.

I echo Zooeysmom in wanting to see a close shaved face - she's such a pretty girl.

At that length you won’t even notice coat change. Look at it as staying ahead of the matts. She is still as cute as can be, no worries there. Buck has a huge coat and after one of the early puppy grooms, he came out looking like the Cricket Cellular character, only black. DH said, “They made him look fat!” He’s been topknot, tail and short body ever since:)

Oh God is that a true statement, and the older they get the quicker it grows out. My girls faces and private groome every 12 to 14 days, once a month and I keep them with a 7 and pompoms, in the winter a 4
