    Well,thinning shears would definitely help. But since the rest of him is so short you might take a snap on comb on them. I do that all the time.

      Not real sure about this, but it looks like you may have some topknot in your ears. Maybe you need to reset the topknot then the ears will look a bit less "poofy." If the ears are truly set on the head that high you can thin out the top of them a little to make the appearance of a lower ear set. Also, allow the topknot to grow in a bit fuller/longer.


      good luck,

        Straighten by Isle of Dogs. Its a spray that helps to tame the wild. You only use a TINY amount and comb it through.

                    I say

                    use thinners. If that doesn't work, then the snap on comb. I think thinners would not be choppy but a snap on could be. Yes make the top not higher and /or fuller to balance. But it is cute anyway, as it is different.

                      My first thought was nice headphones! lol Is the head shaved? I'm kinda blinded by the ears. I would either shave them or do a cocker ear myself, and if they are that high let the top knot grow over them a bit so they look lower. I wish some of my dogs had ear hair like that, most are so limp and thin.

                        I would use a guard comb also on those then thin the edges for a more natural look maybe a

                          Looks like she has a really high/incorrect ear set.

                          I would give her a taller top knot and leave as much hair and length as possible on the ears to help weight them down so they lay better.

                              Check out the site below. Scroll down until you get to the dog in an historically correct working continental. That's how I'd do this dog's head & ears. A little longer on top and blend the ears so that it's all one line from one side to the other.
