My six month old Shih Tzu Mog is getting groomed tomorrow. I can't decide how to get his hair cut. Here is a picture of him now:
I can't decide between just trimming it up and leaving it kind of long like this:
Or cutting off the length so it looks something like this:
Grooming isn't an issue. We're in the habit of brushing him every day.
I always hate the third cut on Shih Tzus… Just the face seems really weird. Your guy sure is cute now, though! I'd say go with the second one. I also don't like the bow they always put on them to keep the hair from their eyes, but it sure is better than #3. Could the top hair be cut like in the third so the tie wouldn't be needed?
My Shih Tzu/Chihuahua cross has only had one haircut so far. He had a puppy cut, but the face turned out like the third one, so I took picked up a home scissor and butchered it to my imperfect delight. When it's not symmetrical, it looks natural on a dog.
You could always pick up a home grooming kit and mess around with him yourself! Good luck!
