How To Do The Teddy Bear Haircut For a Goldendoodle
The picture above demonstrates how their different body parts should be trimmed in order to get the teddy bear look. Next, let’s dive in a little closer to each section.
For the face, you want to imagine 2 circles around your Goldendoodles’ head, one around their muzzle and the other around their entire head. As you can see with the teddy bear in the image, it has 2 distinct circles on its face to give them that adorably cute look.
That’s what we want to replicate. When using scissors for this portion of the cut, do your best to shape their muzzle into a circle. For the rest of their face, you want to do the same thing but bigger. This creates 2 noticeable circles on their face and has the most significant impact on your Goldendoodle looking like a teddy bear.
For their body, you want to keep it at 1.5 to 2 inches in length all over their chest, neck, stomach, and back. The more consistent the body of their coat is, the more pronounced their overall teddy bear appearance will be.
Their legs and paws will have to be rounded. These should be roughly 1.5 to 2 inches in length as well. Once finished, their legs should look like cylinders, and their paws should have a nice rounding effect.
How Much Does It Cost For a Teddy Bear Haircut On a Goldendoodle?
The price to get your Goldendoodle a teddy bear haircut will depend on their size. Puppies typically cost less because they’re smaller and require less work, whereas adults cost more because their body is larger, which means more hair to cut.
Goldendoodle puppy grooming can be as little as $40 all the way up to $120. In comparison, adult Goldendoodle grooming is more likely to be around $80 to $150.
Requesting a teddy bear haircut may also cost a little more because of the specific style you want to be cut, instead of a general trim.
How To Prevent a Goldendoodles Coat From Matting
The best way to prevent your Goldendoodles coat from matting is to brush them regularly. It’s best to brush their hair at least once a week, but more is ideal. If you can develop the habit of daily brushing your Goldendoodle’s coat will thank you.
This will help to loosen any knots or tangles that may have formed and make it easier for you to brush through their coat without causing them any discomfort.
Another way to help prevent their coat from matting is to use a detangling spray. This can be sprayed onto their coat before or after brushing to help loosen any knots or tangles.
A detangling spray can also be used in between brushings to help keep their coat from mats forming in the first place.
Why Is Matted Fur Bad?
Matted fur is bad for several reasons. First and foremost, it’s uncomfortable for your dog. They may start to itch and scratch, which can lead to hot spots or other skin irritations.
Secondly, mats can pull on your dog’s skin which can be painful. And lastly, mats can trap moisture and dirt, which can lead to skin infections.
Matting also prevents your Goldendoodle from being able to get a teddy bear haircut. If their coat is terribly matted, your groomer will have no choice but to shave them.
Which is less than ideal.
How Often Should You Take Your Goldendoodle To Get Groomed?
You should take your Goldendoodle to get groomed every few months. This will help to keep their coat healthy and looking its best. It’s also a good idea to have them professionally groomed if you’re planning on getting a specific haircut like the teddy bear.
A professional groomer will likely have done this cut before and know exactly how to do it. They’ll also be able to give you tips on how to maintain the cut at home between groomings.
Also, be sure to save some pictures of teddy bear haircuts you saw on social media to give your groomer a better idea of what you want exactly. Different groomers do the teddy bear haircut differently, so to ensure you get it done the way you want, it’s best to bring pictures with you!
The teddy bear Goldendoodle haircut is a cute and trendy style that’s perfect for any occasion. It’s not too difficult to do at home, but it’s always best to consult with a professional groomer if you’re unsure.
Remember to brush your Goldendoodles coat regularly to prevent matting and take them in for professional groomings every few months.
