First groom!

Hi everyone, I haven't been on here in a while, so sorry if I haven't replied to messages etc etc!
My havanese Archie is going for his first groom on Thursday! Can anyone recommend how to get him cut? We don't Want him really short just trimming.
Thanks

He's a year old. When I say never been groomed, he has been groomed, but we asked for a shirt trim but instead the woman just hacked all the matts out and he looked a mess. This time we are taking him to a proper place which specialises in doing little dogs

Be prepared for the worst!

Do you have pictures of Hav grooms you like? Show the groomer the pictures you like.

Mats and tangles have to be removed before he goes into his professional groom appointment....or he WILL be shaved!

Yeah we want him in a teddy bear cut
I'm going to bath him, and try my best to remove the tangles! Luckily it's one of the best grooming places in England, people come from all over to be trained there!
He's not really tangled on the image, but heres a pic!

Bring pictures that's the most important thing. I brought pictures with me at Timmy's first groom and I think they did a great job. I always comb out Timmy before I give him a bath. If you can get the tangles out I would hold off giving Archie a bath since he'll be getting one when he gets groomed. Good luck! Try to get some pics posted!

Do you like the messy look or the neat and tidy look?

Hi Doggiesrule - I have a havanese named Archie also, and he just turned one on June 4th! He is in a puppy cut but I am thinking of letting it grow out a little. I comb him almost every day so he doesn't have too many tangles or mats. I also switched him to a vest type harness, which seems to cut down on the mats as well.
