No there is no certain name for a fluffy cut. People throw around "puppy cut" but that term is useless to a groomer. Some people say puppy cut in reference to a newborn puppy's hair, so it can mean very long to some owners or completely shaved to others. Say specific things like: I want about 1/2" taken off or I want 1" left on. Specify if you do not want the bridge of the nose cut short. Most Hav owners don't get the bridge of the nose cut, but some do. Make sure the puppy is getting handled regularly and there are specific things you can work on to prep your puppy, such as handling the toes, holding the chin hair, and using an unsharpened pencil (not the end, the middle of then pencil) around the corner of eyes for desensitization. Of course brushing and combing thoroughly so there are no tangles. If there are tangles in the coat the groomer will most likely shave them out if she can't easily brush them out. There is a lot of info on the forum for how to brush your Hav. Also, there's some great information online for general training of puppies that need to be groomed regularly. Good luck and the rule on the forum is that you have to post pictures of puppies so we can ooh and ahh.
