MI KI GROOMING

Mi Kis have soft silky hair which does not shed. It feels great to touch. As a Mi Ki parent, it’s quite easy to keep it neat and looking great.

When our puppies go home, 98% of them are in a natural puppy hair style. That means the hair has never been cut, except for around the eyes, between the toes and the rear end, sani cut. 98% of our puppy families keep their puppies in this puppy cut. If we have a Mi Ki puppy  or young adult leaving our home, few of them may have a Mi Ki show cut where the face, head, around the ears, neck and toes are trimmed. Retiring adults will be in a puppy cut or in a Mi Ki show cut. No matter how they are trimmed, they have the lovely Mi Ki sweetness.

Like everything in life, there are several options or choices in grooming your little Mi Ki puppy.  Mi Kis in dog shows must be shown with their head and feet trimmed with a #10 or #40 clipper (higher the number, the closer the trim to the skin). Show standard says a Mi Ki can be shown with or without the beard. We prefer our Mi Kis with a clean face without their mustache, especially on girls as it is more of a feminine look. We feel this is the most Mi Ki look, especially with winged ears. We also find this style keeps our Mi Kis cleaner as food and water does not get stuck on their mustache.

For fun and information, we have posted pictures of our puppies with different Mi Ki hair styles to demonstrate the different options families with our Mi Kis can choose. Mythic A New Sheriff In Town, “Sheriff,” our tri colored brindle boy and Mythic Winning Ways “Winnie” our white and fawn Mi Ki girl are the models. Either your groomer can do it or few of our families learn how to do it themselves as they love to style their puppy. Your groomer can refer to this page or to other pictures on our website when they are grooming your puppy. The most important part of grooming your little Mi Ki is to use a style you like. Remember, hair grows.

Mi Ki Puppy Style

Sheriff is sporting the puppy cut. Hair is even all through out the head, face and body. He has only been bathed, had the hair between his toes trimmed and received a sani trim. On an adult or older puppy, have the groomer trim the hair so it’s 1″ or so all over. A lot of pet families like this look as it keeps their Mi Ki looking like a perpetual puppy.

He had a lot of fun with this look. It was just fun to do and you can find your own Mi Ki hair style to match your lifestyle.

Mi Ki Mustache Show Style

The head, around the ears, face and feet are clean using a #10 clipper while the mustache is left. The chin under the mustache is cleaned also. This is a look some Mi Ki breeders like. We only like this look on the boys, if we want a more manly look but we prefer the cleaner and classic Mi Ki show cut.

Mi Ki Clean Show Style

This is the Mi Ki hair style we like best at Mythic Kingdom. It is clean and really shows off the beautiful face. #10 clipper is used on the head to the base of the scull cleaning off the entire face. Tim took off a bit too much off the neck as the hair should be only trimmed to the base of the chin and not down the neck (Tim forgot). The feet are trimmed showing off their tiny toes. Isn’t he stunning!

Diet and grooming products used makes a big difference in the health of your Mi Kis hair. Our puppies and adults are fed a complete and holistic nutrition plan that is customized for them, including salmon oil, immunity builder and gentle ph balanced puppy shampoo and natural conditioning spray. What you put in comes out. What goes on shows. So use the very best!

Our passion: Breeding the smallest sized Chinese Crested puppies, blue eyed and odd eyed Chinese Crested puppies in the world, as well as the rare breed of tiniest Mi Ki puppies out of health tested parents. To go above and beyond what other breeders do by treating each puppy and our valued puppy families like royalty.
Our mission: Share the love of Mi Ki puppies and hairless and powderpuff Chinese Crested puppies with you.

    Great suggestion. Tim has been wanting to do that instead of individual Skype sessions with parents.

    WordPress is great. It takes bit more knowledge than using Weebly but we’ll worth using. Good luck!

    Great blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start
    my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a
    free platform like WordPress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any tips? Kudos!
