All About Long Hair Puppies

Deciding between long hair puppies and short hair puppies is a personal and kinda big choice.
We say "kinda," because there is, undoubtedly, some work involved with their day-to-day maintenance. It's a task that requires some TLC, for sure. Below we are defining and sharing information on those lovely long hair puppies in Miami Florida!
Long hair puppies can be divided into three categories. They are long-coated small dogs, long-parted coats, and long-coated large dogs. Each category has somewhat different grooming specifications.
Long-Coated Small Dogs
Long-coated small dogs have hair that is not parted along their back, which can still be a challenge to groom. These long hair puppies should be groomed on a daily basis.
Once you’ve given your small pup a bath, you should towel dry his coat and immediately blow dry it. This will greatly reduce the chances of tangling. Simultaneously while blow drying, use a pin brush to continually brush and fluff his hair. When it's completely dry, trim the underside of your dog using an electric clipper. This should be done in the pattern of how your dog's hair lays. Next, you'll want to trim his paw pads and feet and do this just enough so that it reaches the ground around his paw. The last step is to brush and comb the hair on and around your dog's head and face.
These are some popular long-coated small dogs:
Pomeranian
Havanese
Pekingese
Long-Parted Coats
These long hair puppies have a long-parted coat with long hair that should be especially separated in a straight part along with their back. The biggest complaint about these long hair puppies is that it's quite difficult to groom the part in a precisely straight pattern.
After you have bathed your long hair puppies, towel dry and then blow dry it to keep the hair tangle-free. Once the coat is dry, stand behind your dog and guide the tip of a comb just over the nose. Very slowly, begin moving the comb over the crown of the head, down the neck and back towards the base of the tail. It's important to make sure that you're moving the hairs to the proper sides, forming the part as you go. After you've attained a perfectly straight part (and you will!), spray the entire coat with conditioner to set it.
Here are the only breeds that fall into this category:
Shih Tzu
Afghan Hound
Yorkshire Terrier
Maltese
Lhasa Apso
Skye Terrier
Tibetan Terrier
Silky Terrier
Long-Coated Large Dogs
The grooming requirements of these long hair puppies are very similar to that of long-coated small dogs. The only significant difference is that long-coated large dogs are more likely to have more dirt and tangles in their coats, from spending more time outside. Other than that, you can follow the same grooming techniques, as referenced earlier.

We Have Hybrid Puppies Here!

Hybrid or “designer” dogs are the latest craze in the puppy industry and we applaud their varied mixes! They are often times a blend of the best of both doggy worlds, making for dogs with affable and desirable temperaments. Below are a few designer breeds that we feature and sell near Miami Florida. Cavachon You have surely seen these beauties, but perhaps you didn’t recognize the breed by name. We are formally introducing you to this beautiful breed! Cavachon puppies are a type of mixed breed or hybrid puppies that came from a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Bichon Frise. They range from 12 to 16 inches in height and they can weigh between 10 to 20 pounds. Cavachon puppies come in a variety of coat colors, but the most common are peach and white. You’ll also see tri-colored, black and tan, and sable. Maltishi Maltishi puppies are the beautifully blended mix of the Maltese and Shih Tzu dogs. These sweet babies were originated and created to be small companions who don’t shed much and loves laps! There’s more to the eye with these little guys. Maltishi hybrid puppies are full of personality and not the kind that’s nerve-wracking. They are active, intelligent dogs with relatively quiet and laid back personalities. They love being around family and they’re quite content spending quality time with you. We will warn you that they can sometimes be a bit curious and mischievous so just be mindful! Walrus The Walrus dogs are hybrid puppies that are a cross between a Chinese Shar-Pei and a Basset Hound. His body is more of the Basset, but his skin is wrinkly and crinkly like the Shar-Pei, making him undeniably irresistible. They are technically a medium sized dog, as they range from 40 to 60 pounds. You may also see them referred to as a Ba-Shar.  Walrus puppies for sale are normally a show stopper and conversation starter because they’re still kinda rare, so some research studies are rare and sparse, too. What we know for sure is that they are an affectionate breed who match very well with dog owners who live inactive and somewhat sedentary lifestyles. Mini Goldendoodle The Miniature Goldendoodle is crossed between a Toy, Miniature, or small Standard Poodle and a Golden Retriever. They’ve been nicknamed the Mini Groodle, which is kinda funny! The name Goldendoodle originated in the United States during the early 1990’s. Mini Goldendoodle puppies are friendly, hypoallergenic, non-shedding dogs. They are extremely intelligent, having been mixed with two smart breeds, this is expected! Mini Goldendoodle puppies are also highly trainable, affectionate, and extremely social dogs. Because of their cheerful disposition, they are trustworthy and eager to please their owners. The Mini Goldendoodle puppy will thrive in any home environment, i.e. apartments or stand-alone houses, surely to be entertaining, and creating memories with your family for 10 – 14 years! Yorkipoo The Yorkipoo is a cross between the Yorkshire Terrier and a Toy or Miniature Poodle. The charming Yorkipoo stops everyone in their tracks upon first sight! They are always ready to play or entertain you. These hybrid puppies are gentle and loving dogs who can do well with children, but very young children are not recommended. That would increase the likelihood of injury if he’s improperly handled.  A Yorkipoo makes for an excellent companion for the elderly, as well.
