I have only Poodles, but I love the Bikini Clip!! I have a red Poodle girl that looks great in that style. If your dog has pretty good texture and volume to the coat, I think you could pull it off even though sh'e not a poodle. I have seen a picture of a shi-type dog in that style and I've seen a spitz-type dog in it too. The key is finding the right length for body and the right length for poms, I like a very short body which makes the poms look fuller.
