What is a teddy bear puppy cut?
The teddy bear cut is a Poodle or Doodle cut in which the hair is kept at about 1-2 inches long at all parts of the dog’s body, including the face. Traditional Poodle cuts have the face shaved closely to the skin. If shaved, the face looks more serious, regal and show-dog like.

When should a puppy get his first haircut?
16 weeks old
Many puppy owners make the mistake of waiting until their pups are six months of age or older before taking them for grooming.

Can you give a puppy a haircut?

When should you cut a puppy’s hair?
Most breeds develop their coarser, longer coat by six to eight months of age.

How do you groom a puppy’s face?
Use sharp shears and clipers; dull blades will rip the hair out of the skin. Use safety shears with a rounded tip instead of a pointed one to avoid injury. Never trim your dog while her hair is wet, it will catch in the clippers and be pulled. Never try to cut the hair on your dog’s face alone if she won’t stand still.
