Popular Aussiedoodle Haircuts With Pictures
There are so many popular Aussiedoodle hair cuts that it can be hard to pick one. But we’re here to help guide you through the most popular Aussiedoodle cuts.
Your Aussiedoodle’s haircuts before and after transformation will be more rewarding if you consider your dog’s coat type.
Aussiedoodle Teddy Bear Cut
- The mini or “teddy bear” Aussiedoodle is one of the most popular breeds because they just look so fluffy and soft and you could snuggle them up just like a teddy bear! The teddy bear cut is most common with mini Aussiedoodles, but it can be used on any size Aussiedoodle and have a flattering effect.
- For the Aussiedoodle teddy bear cut, their hair is medium in length at approximately 1.5 to 3 inches but also long enough to be able to see their gorgeous wavy hair without cutting off the curls and waves that are unique to their coats. It is trimmed short enough for management and kept long enough to really appreciate those curls.
- The difference with this particular haircut versus the Aussiedoodle puppy cut is the area around the face is cut in a rounded manner. This is to make them look like a teddy bear. You will take one look at your Aussiedoodle puppy and just gush with the need to squeeze and hug them.
Aussiedoodle Terrier Cut
- Another popular haircut style for the Aussiedoodle is a terrier cut. Yes, you read that right. While your dog really has no relation to a Terrier breed, the inspiration for this cut comes from some terriers and looks great on an Aussiedoodle.
- The majority of the dog’s coat is cut evenly from neck to tail. It can be kept long, short, or somewhere in between but just cut it slightly short with a consistent length all over. To finish up the Aussiedoodle Terrier haircut, a groomer would trim around the face, eyebrows, and muzzle to give your dog a distinct terrier style that looks quite sharp.
Aussiedoodle Puppy Cut
The Aussiedoodle puppy cut is very similar to the teddy bear cut. Both hair cuts are short, only about three inches in length at their longest style.
Your dog may need more frequent clippings to keep the Aussiedoodle puppy cut length, but it’s beneficial overall because you’ll need to brush and comb your Aussiedoodle less often.
Aussiedoodle Poodle Cut
- It’s only fair to take a look at the breed from which an Aussiedoodle is produced, the Poodle! When the hair is cut short, it will be more consistent with Poodle hair and also less maintenance in terms of brushing. Your Aussiedoodle will also have fewer mats and tangles in its fur.
- You can turn your Aussiedoodle into a Poodle-style dog with this haircut. The fur on the coat of the body is cut fairly short so those Poodle ringlets will be prominent. Then, to finish up the haircut, you will keep the ankles, head, and tail slightly longer, just like what you might expect to see on a Poodle that has been groomed.
- Not all Aussiedoodles wear this haircut as well because their coats can be so different. Some are too thick but really, most Aussiedoodles will be able to pull off the Poodle cut in some way or another. We typically think this looks best on Aussiedoodles that have a curlier coat.
Aussiedoodle Summer Cut / Shaved
- Some Aussiedoodle owners find it’s much easier to just shave their dog’s coat, especially during the summer. This isn’t laziness but perhaps their Aussiedoodle’s coat is prone to matting or tangles. Keep in mind that their coats can vary quite a bit and you’re going to want a shorter coat if your Aussiedoodle gets mats in their fur.
- An Aussiedoodle summer cut or full shave might help keep a dog cool and relaxed, particularly during hot summer months. An Aussiedoodle’s coat is thick, regardless of what their hairstyle is and a full shave lightens the hair which makes them more comfortable overall. Shaving an Aussiedoodle might also buy you some extra time in between trips to the groomer. This saves you lots of money overall.
- A shave will not only get rid of matted areas and tangles but also help keep Aussiedoodle grooming to a minimum so you won’t have to brush them as much. It can be an inexpensive option because it’s a quick fix and there are no fancy details that have to be completed and can sometimes be hard to get just right. The downside of shaving your Aussiedoodle is that they typically don’t look as cute as if they had longer coats.
How to Groom an Aussiedoodle from Home
If you’re even the least bit uncertain, it’s perfectly acceptable to find a local groomer that can help bring your Aussiedoodle’s haircut to life. Even if you utilize a groomer for major haircuts, there are some maintenance steps you can take in between cuts to keep your Aussiedoodle looking fresh.
When it comes time to groom your Aussiedoodle, here is a simple process you could follow.
- Wash and dry the dog. Start with a good wash, using quality shampoo (oatmeal is great for this breed!)
- Complete any trimming or cutting as needed to their coat, including sanitary areas that need to be trimmed.
- Gently clean your dog’s ears and treat them as needed
- Trim nails – be sure to do this safely and carefully. Follow all proper nail-trimming tips to avoid hurting your dog’s paws.
