The Ultimate Guide

Giving Your Golden Doodle a Teddy Bear Cut

Bringing out the best in your Golden Doodle’s fluffy fur can be both a delightful and a daunting task. With their adorable faces and cuddly nature, the teddy bear cut is a perfect style to complement their playful and loving demeanor. In this guide, we’ll walk you through each step of giving your Golden Doodle the ultimate teddy bear cut, complete with images to help you along the way. Let’s get started!


Step 1: Preparation – Bathing Your Doodle

The journey to a perfect teddy bear cut begins with a thorough bath. Use a dog-specific shampoo and conditioner to ensure your Doodle’s coat is clean, tangle-free, and ready for grooming.

Step 2: Clipping the Body and Legs

After your Doodle is dry, start with clipping the body and legs. Use clippers with a long guard comb to keep the coat slightly longer, maintaining that fluffy look essential for the teddy bear style

Step 3: Shaping the Head and Face

The essence of the teddy bear cut lies in the roundness of the head and face. Carefully trim with scissors to shape the fur around the head, ensuring symmetry and maintaining the adorable teddy bear look.

Step 4: Trimming the Feet and nail

Next, focus on the paws, giving them a “bootie” look by trimming around the feet with scissors. This step requires precision, especially between the toes, to achieve a neat appearance.

Step 5: Final Touches – Combing, Detailing and ear cleaning

The last step in grooming your Golden Doodle with a teddy bear cut involves detailed work to ensure the fur is even, fluffy, and uniformly adorable. Using a comb and scissors, go over your Doodle’s coat for any final touches. This is your opportunity to smooth out any uneven areas and perfect that cuddly teddy bear appearance. Focus on enhancing the coat’s natural beauty, making sure your Doodle looks as soft and cuddly as ever.

In Addition

In addition to fur grooming, it’s essential not to overlook ear care. Gently cleaning your Golden Doodle’s ears with a soft, damp cloth or a special ear cleaner recommended by your vet can prevent infections and ensure their ears stay healthy. Be careful to clean only the parts of the ears you can see; never insert anything into the ear canal. Regular ear checks and cleanings should be part of your grooming routine, keeping your Doodle happy and healthy from head to paw.

With these steps, your Golden Doodle will not only look adorable with their new teddy bear cut but also feel comfortable and well-cared-for, thanks to your attention to detail in both grooming and health care.

Grooming your Golden Doodle at home can be a rewarding experience, bringing out the natural beauty and charm of your furry friend. With patience, the right tools, and a bit of practice, you can master the teddy bear cut and keep your Doodle looking adorable and cuddly all year round. Remember, the key to a successful grooming session is to ensure your dog feels comfortable and safe throughout the process. Happy grooming!
