She is adorable!!! :D I am having sort of the same issue myself with my Eddee. He is a Schnauzer/Possible Cairn Terrier ( like Toto ) mix. He should really be stripped and not clipped. I do my own grooming ... so I am going to attempt it.

If I had your little pup ... I would not clip her. I would have the groomer decide what type of hair she has for sure. She may also need stripped depending on her hair type and mix? I would just want a basic groom because their hair does help to insulate them from the heat as well as the cold.

My Schnauzer/Poodles have no undercoat and they risk sunburn amongst other extremes if I clip them too short. Then I must wear a t-shirt on them if they are outside in the sun for any length of time and a sweater or coat in the fall and winter.

This is all just my opinion though. I am not a real groomer! Lol! I just do a fairly decent job after 6 years of practice! Lol! Maybe one of the "real groomers" on the board will stop by ........ they have helped me out tremendously!

Never-the-less ... your pup is precious!!! :D

IMHO ... depending on what her mix is ... she could get wire hair ... if she has any wire haired breed in there somewhere? They also make a dry shampoo for dogs that I have used before. It is a foam that you rub in and just towel dry and brush out.

I personally have bathed my Schnauzer/Poodles every two weeks for almost 6 years now without any ill effects ... but every dog is different. I bathe Abbylynn only every 3-6 months due to her breed and she had some dry skin issues as a pup.

Personally I think a good dog shampoo is what the groomers are probably going to suggest. :)
