Teddy Bear Hair Cut

Teddy Bear HaircutThe teddy bear haircut for dogs and puppies looks exactly as it sounds: both the hair on the main body (or core area of the dog) and the muzzle are cut very short. Usually for this step, a clipper comb can be used. The hair around the ears is cut in a rounded manner to give an arched look that is reminiscent of bear ears. It’s a very cute looking hair cut.

If you want to get your dog’s hair cut professionally, which isĀ advisableĀ for this particular hair cut, you should visit a local dog groomer. The time it takes for the cut will depend on the groomer.

For a small to mid-sized dog like a Cocker Spaniel, Bichon, or Maltese, grooming can cost anywhere from $30 to $50. For larger breeds, it can cost up to $90. The cost of grooming with this particular haircut also depends on where you live, since it will generally cost more in a large city like New York.

Be careful when it comes to double-coated breeds of dogs, though. If you live in an area where it gets really hot, you might be tempted to help bring some relief to your panting pal. It seems logical, but don’t do it! A breed with a double-coat uses that fur as both insulation for when it’s cold and when it is hot. Because of this reason, it is best to leave a teddy bear style cut to silky-coated dogs like Spaniels and Yorkies, or non-shedding dogs like Poodles or Bichons.
