Default Hairstyles

My husband has gone and booked a groomer to come and give Treacle the "works"
I am now speaking to him again [just] but I love the long look and do not want her to have too much cut off. Her hair is silky soft with no matts - she looks shaggy and needs to be able to see again!
Is there a good website with hairstyles for dogs [my husband is killing himself laughing at me as I type this!]
I want to show the groomer my ideal look for her rather than try to explain it!

Maybe people could post a picture of their cockapoo here then you can find a look you like.

I keep Flo quite short so maybe not what you are looking for...

As a groomer I can say a pic tells a thousand words.
I groom a fair few cockapoos.
There are comb/guard attachments like we " grade 3 etc" for our hair.
The longest attachment is an eight.
I'd go for an eight all over, six on the head and ears. All the sanitary areas and arm pits as short as u can go.

This will give u a consistent cut for your dog to have, hair always grows back!

A pic will give u the face you want, I will try an upload some line drawings of face/ beard options from one of the popular grooming guides.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
I'm a hairdresser and have used clippers for many years, this is probably a silly question but I presume the grade attachments are different lengths to hairdressing clipper grades, and where do you get them from. The grooming clipper sets I've seen only seem to come with 4 grades. The websites I've looked on don't seem to show the 5-8 grades. I'm going to have a go at home grooming in-between having her done professionally to keep costs down (Although, I take a dim view of my clients having a go at doing their own hair!!!)

I home groom and have listed all my stuff here including comb attachments that go from 1-8 http://www.mydogslife.co.uk/2011/08/...oming-flo-diy/

Adam - Can you recommend a good slicker please? The cheap Mikki slicker I'm using doesn't get right through Flo's coat properly.

aww thanks, im still learning i know what i like but i allso know it changes with the weather, a shorter coat in the winter does make life easier.

very interested in your drawings, perhaps you could post some before and after shots of the next cockapoo you do?


the beauty of our breed is that the coat grows back.
