To Trim or Not to Trim!!!
I need the adivce of all the experienced Havanese parents,
My puppy seems to have started blowing his coat and he looks soooo strange. At first he looked like he was missing hair right in the middle of the back and you could see down to the skin. His tail also looked very pittyful. His coat was also pretty streight (think Maltese) and more cottony than silky. Now he is getting new hair and you can really see it in the middle of his back. It's thicker, silkier and wavier (which I really like). He still has quite a lot of baby hair on the sides, but the new hair closer to the skin is much thicker and where the old hair looks like one out of each follicle, the new ones seems to be more like five or more (that is much thicker). Is that normal? Also, I've heard that it takes up to three years for the adult coat to come in, is that true?
Having said all that, would it be nicer to give him a puppy cut all over to even out the hair or should I just let it come out as it will? Also, can someone please post pics of a good puppy cut I can take to my groomer to show?
