i keep my little girl, Tashi, in a full cut. She loves to be groomed and comes to me daily for her grooming. It is a ritual that I started when she was 12 weeks old and she is now five years old. I brush and comb her daily and bathe and trim (feet, fanny and ears) every three weeks. I definitely wouldn't advise a full cut if you don't have the time to spare or a dog that doesn't enjoy the pampering.
