Silly winter dog grooming questions?
Hi - This is a dumb question , but.... I recently adopted a small terrier/poodle mix. I had him groomed when I got him in December. He's getting fairly shaggy now. I was thinking that given that he's small (13lbs) - its cold (a wood heated home in Maine) that I would leave him long until it was warmer. However it snowed last night and by the time we came back from the morning walk he was encrusted with snow balls. Hard to remove - and cold for him. So now I'm thinking I should have him groomed again - but how short? I've never had a dog this small. He loves loves playing in the snow, and doesn't seem to mind the cold when we are outside, but I like to get him warm and dry quickly when we come inside. Nevermind keeping lots of dog scented snowballs out of the house and off my floor.
