I am the proud new owner of a 6 month old Pom-a-Poo. All he is right now is a big ole' fluff ball and is in serious need of some style. He has the poodle ears and a docked tail. Any one have any ideas on how to give him some style? Should I go with a poodle cut--I love the shaved face and feet on the poodles.

Depends on the texture of his coat what kind of cut you can put on your Pom-a-Poo. Also how much time do you have to maintain the look with brushing, combing. You need to take him to a professional groomer asap. It takes time for the pup to get used to the table, dryer, clipper, etc. The sooner you get your pup acclimated to grooming the less stress will be on him. First time I do a pup, if its coat is well maintained, I usually do a bath and brush out. I also introduce him to all the noises that take place in a grooming salon. First time is called introduction groom. Want to make the first visit as plesant as possible.

my newly adopted pomapoo is 3 years old and is pretty much a fluffball. he loves water, so isn't afraid of baths and loves to be brushed, so i think he's been groomed before. he has the curled up fluffy tail. any ideas on a good grooming look?

by the way, this dog has a very straight, smooth coat, but he has curly legs. my neice says he looks like a little "Benji". Does that help?

Can you post a picture?
It also depends on what you want the dog to look like. Do his ears stick up like a pom or lay down like a poodle.
Do you want long hair on his face or does he have that? Do you want his face short like a pom?
If his ears are up and you want short face, a teddy trim for a pom is great for a dog like that.
If his ears are down and you like face hair like a benji dog, then a cute trim like a Benji dog will work too. or maybe a cross between a shih tzu teddy trim and a bichonly look.
It all depends on what the dog looks like.
A pic would help.
I have several clips that would look nice.

My little Zoey is an apricot pom a poo. She is 4 months old and just a little fur ball. She weighs almost 5 pounds. I Love her little face and her fluff. I am not sure what to do about all of her matted hair on her legs and backside. Is it ok to get her groomed this early? It gets very messy.

As long as she has had her shots she should be good to go. It is actually good to get her acclimated to the process early on so that it is less stressful for her as she gets older. If she is already matting the groomer can help you determine a trim and home care routine that best fits your lifestyle to prevent further matting.

Actually, ALL dogs should begin a grooming regimen as soon as they are finished with their puppy shots. The earlier and more often they are groomed, the more they get used to it and do not become stressed out by the process. There is nothing worse than seeing a 2 year old dog come in for it's 1st ever groom and it is matted or packed with under coat! It is so sad for the dog to have to be put through not only the stress of a new situation, but also the stress (and sometimes pain!--yikes) of being groomed in a matted state, when it all could have been prevented by a better informed owner! For future referance, talk to your groomer and get her on a schedule that will enable you to bring her in BEFORE she gets matted at all. This will be much easier on Zoey and will make any style of hair cut that YOU want on her possible.
