Grooming task is an essential activity that will benefit your furry friend. To make it more exciting and fun, you can follow our dog grooming styles guide to see which will best suit your pup.

1. Standard Puppy Cut

The puppy cut is one of the most popular styles requested at grooming saloons because it compliments a variety of dogs. The groomer will cut your canine’s hair the same length all over his body. It is known to be an overall uniform length where fur is clipped to two inches or less, depending on your personal preferences. Some people also call it a kennel trim.

Although it is low maintenance, it requires grooming once a week. Make sure to specify the stylist how short you want the pup’s hair to be before he starts.

2. Teddy Bear Trim

Ask the professional groomer for this cut, if you want your pooch to look as cuddly and cute as a stuffed bear. This trim requires cutting hair around the face and head that is longer than the body’s fur. It also leaves the legs round and full.

If you want to make it an ideal for warm weather, your dog’s body hair needs to be much shorter than usual. This style is a favorite one among small dogs, and it requires maintenance every 6 to 8 weeks.

3. Lamb Trim

As its name suggests, this trim will make your furry friend look like a lamb. You need to cut the body and head hair short to achieve a nice trim for the hot summer months. It will keep your pet cool and ready for warm weather.

Grooming is necessary every 6 to 8 weeks, which is very convenient for owners of long-haired pooches who are very busy.

4. Lion Trim

This cut is trendy for long-haired, small dogs. But you can also see big pooches like Chow Chows, to have it. The hair around the jaw and head is kept longer while the body fur is shaved closely to the skin. The groomer leaves a little hair on the tip of the tail, and clips short the rest of it.

The natural, long fur should be brushed well and cared for daily. This trim is very high-maintenance, and it requires grooming once a week.

5. Summer Cut

You can choose a summer cut to remove the heavy-coat of your dog. That way he won't get too hot during the warm weather. Let the professional groomer trim your mutt’s fur so your little buddy can stay cool. He will clip the dog’s hair very short, with the exception of the tail and the ears.

The great thing about this cut is that you can combine it with a different head style. For example, you might try a lion head style with a summer trim. Or you could try mixing teddy bear with summer style. The right answer depends on your personal preference and how much time you have to spend on the personal care of your furry friend.
