Dog Breed Classification

 

Not sure what type of groom your dog requires? Check out our breed sorting lists below

 

While these lists are limited to purebred dogs, they should help with deciding which Tidy Tails grooming package is most suitable for your pet. Keep in mind these recommendations are not set in stone. If you happen to have a Dachshund, it could be classified as a short-coated, long-coated, or wire-haired breed depending on which features are most prominent in the dog. Also, cross-breeds can have wildly disparate features that make them nearly impossible to categorize. For this reason, think of this directory more a guideline than a set of hard-and-fast rules. In the end, it will be your groomer who decides which category your dog belongs in.
