And I think I'm a bit nervous about it, LOL

I sort of want a puppy cut, but want the face and legs longer..not too short on the body...as you can see in his new pics, he's really shaggy. I don't think the thick hair has come in yet. His hair is pin straight.

Are there different types of haircuts for Maltese beside the standard and puppy cut?

I suggest you look through pictures on this forum and find one of a cut that you like. Print it out and take it with you.....it doesn't matter how well you describe it to the groomer, a picture is worth a thousand words.

......this is from my experience anyway....

also stress that you do NOT want the legs shaved down, just trimmed. Otherwise he may end up with chicken legs!!!:w00t:

Looking forward to seeing pictures of Rocky next week :thumbsup:

Yes, I agree, make sure to take soem pictures and repeat that you don't want the legs shaved. I told my groomer like three time to please leave it long - just trim it ever so slightly to even it out, but to def. trim the paws. Looking forward to the pics :)
