I prefer show cut, because this is my third shihtzu my first two one was always in a show cut and the other was in either a puppy or teddy bear cut.
My most recent now is in a show cut. I think it comes down to the dog and their personality not the owner preference. I do my own groomimg, clipping, trimming, show cuts and am learning to do puppy and teddy bear cuts too. I prefer to do them myself.
