What Is a Havanese Puppy Cut?

A Havanese puppy cut is a hairstyle for the Havanese dog breed. This type of dog has a long, fluffy coat. Pet owners who want a low maintenance style can opt for this cut, which keeps the fur at the length it was when the dog was a puppy.

The puppy cut is performed by using a 5 or 6 guard on electric clippers, resulting in fur that is about an inch long. The hair all over the dog’s limbs and torso is clipped, while the face and sometimes the tail are left long. Havanese should never be shaved down to the skin, as the fur provides insulation from both cold and heat.
