With all the grooming required to keep them clean, it's good to also know Wheaten Terrier haircuts and how to get that look. The secret of that look is the fall, which is the bit of hair that literally falls over the dog's eyes. There is that beard, of course, but without the fall, the look is bare.
Trimming the fall is not a style in itself. It can be done by trimming the side of the fall to the center of the dog's eyes. When done correctly you can see the Wheaten's eyes from the side but not from the front.
The Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier Puppy Cut is a hairstyle that is easy for at-home grooming. This one is good for summertime or if you easier coat maintenance. The entire coat is cut the same length of about 1.5 to 2 inches long. The legs are trimmed straight down so they look like cylinders. The fall is cut short so they can see as well as have their eyes seen easily.
The Wheaten Terrier Show Cut is a high-maintenance style where the hair is left long so it appears to flow when the dog walks. Great attention is paid to the face to make sure the fall blends in with the muzzle hair and beard. This should only be done by experienced groomers.
Then there is the Wheaten Cut. It's like the Show Cut but the emphasis is on the face where the fall and the beard are basically kept intact. The hair between the ears is trimmed short, but not abruptly. The rest of the body is trimmed relatively short, not unlike a Puppy Cut. You can learn how to trim a Wheaten Terrier this way but you should learn by watching it be done first.
