Choosing the Best Puppy Cut for Havanese Dogs
There are a few different puppy cuts that look great on Havanese dogs. You’ll have to consult with your puppy to decide on which one looks best. Many of these puppy cuts are similar to other haircuts for small dogs. So, if you’ve got some experience trimming poodles or goldendoodles, you’re in luck.
These are a few of the most popular Havanese puppy cut styles.
Basic Havanese Puppy Cut
This is the haircut that most people imagine when they think of a cute Havanese dog. It’s also the most popular. Since you can’t really go wrong with the basic Havanese puppy cut, many owners are quick to choose this style and show off their beautiful dog.
This is a relatively simple cut that involves trimming the hair down to somewhere between a half-inch to an inch. Shave everywhere, including the legs. If you’d like, you can leave the facial fur a bit longer.
Teddy Bear Cut
The teddy bear cut is another popular haircut for small dogs that leaves your pup looking like a soft, lovable teddy bear. If you want to be reminded of how adorable your dog was when it was young, the teddy bear cut is about as close as you’ll get!
For this cut, start with just trimming the torso the same length as a regular cut, between a half-inch to an inch. Leave the leg fur and the face fur a bit longer, which puffs the dog up a bit making it look like a round teddy bear.
This haircut requires a bit more maintenance than the standard puppy cut.
This haircut is especially useful during the summer months. It’s also very low-maintenance and if you’re getting your puppy trimmed at a salon, you’ll be able to save money with fewer visits.
Whatever the case, this cut is very simple: just shave your puppy’s hair close to the skin, going up to an eighth of an inch. If you desire, you can leave the hair on the face a little bit longer.
Make sure to use extra caution when you’re using a short-razor around your puppy’s sensitive bits. However, you do want to make sure that the hair is even all-around, so just make sure that you’re moving slowly around their backside and near their genitals.
A good puppy cut for Havanese dogs can be the difference between cute and adorable. Lucky for you, the simple Havanese puppy cuts that we have listed today are easy enough to do at home.
