Teddy Bear Goldendoodle Haircuts
A dog sporting a Goldendoodle teddy bear cut? Be still my heart! This haircut starts with the cutest thing ever—a Goldendoodle dog—and gives her the look of the second cutest thing ever—a teddy bear.
Whether a Goldendoodle puppy or an adult, all Doods sporting the teddy bear cut are like walking versions of cuddly teddy bears—so irresistibly cute they melt your heart.
If you’re curious about the Goldendoodle haircut, then snuggle up with your pup and get comfy. Today we’re spilling the tea on what makes the Goldendoodle teddy bear haircut so un-bear-ably cute! We’re glad you’re here, friends.
Types of Goldendoodle haircuts
First, there are many adorable Goldendoodle haircut styles—the wild and adventurous Goldendoodle lion cut, the gentle lamb cut, the sporty kennel cut, and even the positively poodley Poodle cut. In fact, you could say there are as many ways to style a Goldendoodle’s coat as there are types, colors, and sizes of Doodles!
However, the look that I think is heart-stopping (and probably the most often associated with the Goldendoodle) is the teddy bear cut.
This haircut has all the features of the classic teddy bear stuffed animal from our childhood days—the round face, button eyes, big bear paws, and the stuffed-with-fluff body. I think it’s the perfect match for the Goldendoodle’s sweet, happy, and comical personality.
Incidentally, while the focus of this article is specifically on the Goldendoodle dog, the teddy bear cut is a popular grooming style for many breeds of dogs.
A brief overview of the Goldendoodle
But wait. Let’s back up a sec. Are you familiar with the Goldendoodle? Besides being the cutest thing on this earth, you may be interested to know that the Goldendoodle is a hybrid cross between the Golden Retriever and the Poodle. But there’s so much more to these adorable dogs.

Did you know that “teddy bear” is used to describe both the dog and the haircut?
Now, let’s talk dog. The words “teddy bear” are sometimes used to describe the Goldendoodle breed. Many Doodle enthusiasts refer to all Goldendoodles as teddy bear Goldendoodles. However, from my research, the term teddy bear Goldendoodle was originally associated with one specific type of Goldendoodle.
The puppy cut versus the teddy bear Goldendoodle cut
Now that we’ve covered the difference between the “teddy bear haircut” and the “teddy bear Goldendoodle,” let’s talk puppy cut and teddy bear cut. Here’s where things get messy. It’s like the old saying, “You say tom-A-to, I say tom-AH-to.”
If you’re talking to one Goldendoodle mom, dog groomer, or enthusiast, they may use the term puppy cut. Another Doodle lover may use the term Goldendoodle teddy bear haircut. Still others may use both terms—puppy cut and teddy bear cut— interchangeably.
