First "real" haircut

I have had my Harley boy cut a couple of times in a puppy trim. Just a little around the eyes, toes, butt. He is now 5 months old. His hair has gotten really long and I'm taking him tomorrow for another cut. It has only been 3 weeks since the last one. My question is, at what age can you have a real puppy cut? I don't want him like a poodle cut, but a puppy cut. Like a teddy bear. Thanks to anyone for advice.

I wouldn't think the age matter, but I know there are a lot of threads with pics and especially people you came home with poodles. I would search the threads and maybe take a pic to the groomer of what you want him to look like in the end.

I agree I don't think there is an age prerequisite.

The next time Dexter gets his hair cut, I will tell the groomer to leave the top of the head with some hair.

When Dexter got his groom, they cut so there was feathering left on his legs and a shirt coming down, belly trimmed, feet trimmed, just cleaned up really good.

If your dog has mats they will shave him down.

Where are your before pictures? We want to see............

I am taking my pup Benji 5 months old tomorrow he went with his sister(Phoebe) a couple of months ago but just did a trim..I am nervous he has long silky hair and I don't want him too short. Phoebe is cotton and has to be kept short..wish us luck ..I do have a great groomer she let's you stay with her while she does them I would have it no other way.
