SO exactly what sort of hairdo do you want to do? It's up to the owner to decide which look he wants for his dog. Lifestyle, age, and health of the dog are considerations when you groom a dog, as well as the condition of the coat and skin. Also consider the function of the breed and what type of coat it needs to protect it: Where do you live? What is the climate like? How much time do you have to maintain your dog? These are all factors in deciding hairstyle.
