Grooming Styles for Poodle Hybrids & Mixes

You are the proud owner of a sweet Poodle Mix pup and it is getting bigger, the hair is longer and "more there" and harder to keep up with, and you are fighting knots, mats, dreadlocks or worse. Even if you manage to keep up with the bathing and brushing at home, it takes forever to dry the pup, and it doesn't look quite as cute any longer than it used too...

Time to visit a professional groomer [or have a mobile groomer come to you]. One of the things I always hear in the groomer community is the problem of communication and unrealistic expectations from the pet owners side of view. When you say "cut it short" - a groomer may hear "shave it bald". When you say - make it look like a puppy, a groomer may think that that point is long down the creek. You may bring a photo of a dog you have seen in a magazine, but yours has a different hair texture or the coat is matted pretty badly and dematting the pup is torture for both the groomer and dog alike.
