Never wash the dog with embroiled hairs, afterwards it would be harder to take it off, and much more painful to him. Usually, more frequent clients of these saloons are those breeds whose hair needs and adequate cutting off. Frequency varies according to breeds. For example, Poodles need their hair to be cut frequently, at least twice a month, as well as other that do not shed hair. Some styles of hair cutting are known as "lamb cut", and is very much of the liking of Poodle's owners. The hair is cut off at a uniform length, short or long.The "Dutch" style is more attractive, with the short hair of the body contrasting the long hair of the legs.

If you have a Spaniel, you can cut his hair every two or three months. Likewise, you should carefully watch the hair between the ties; in this zone are the exocrine sudorific glands, and the skin could be a source of irritation, and a hiding place for mites, with similar effects. Hair cutting could be necessary for medical reasons, like diarrhea, that otherwise will dirty the hair around the anus, attracting flies that will place their eggs causing an infection known as the fly attack.
