Hello everyone, I need your opnions,

I have a shih tzu mix named Pixel. I'm also a groomer with almost 3 years experience. I like to keep her in a style that reflects my skills. I hand scissor her legs and keep her appearance clean and sharp. Since she comes to work with me she is a walking business card (well she's obviously more than that, but you know what I mean). So it's very important she looks the best she can since I'm still building clientele.

Well it's summer time, and I want to go a lot shorter on her. Last summer I just simply went shorter on her scissored legs, but this summer I want to do a crazy style, without making it look stupid crazy! My boyfriend (Pixel's dad) wants her shaved! He calls it the chicken bunny look. I don't want to do something that easy.

So I thought an in-between would work. I'm thinking like bikini clip on a poodle. #4 on the body and feet, pom poms on the ankles. She'll keep the round head, ears and long tail though. I don't know if it would look that good though since she doesn't have the poodle type hair. Her hair is straight, medium thick and very soft. It has good volume, until it gets to about an inch and a half in length then it starts to flop. I'll add a couple of pictures to get a better idea.

Any advice on this type of style please. I've only done it on poodles and only about 20 times. If you have pictures of bikini type clips on non poodles that would be GREAT!

Also, any ideas of other crazy styles I can do please. I really want to try different things on my dog and show her off but I'm nervous :)

Those are all great ideas, I really like the Clydesdale type feet without the shaved poodle feet. If it's from the hock down on the back legs, I guess it's from the same height from the ground on the front feet. You can kind of tell in my picture there that I tried a terrier type head on my dog without the ears and not as short, but I didn't like that look. I also tried a mow hock all the way down the back once and gelled it all spiky.
