Goldendoodles are adorable dogs, a crossbreed of golden retrievers and poodle hybrids. A cross of these two (golden retriever and poodle hybrid) makes a golden doodle – a loving, affectionate, and beautiful dog with an allergen-friendly, thick coat with non-shedding characteristics. The double, thick coat of doodles consists of a dense coat of short hairs under a top coat of longer guard hairs.
Goldendoodles inherit all the characteristics from both of their parents and usually have very curly, poodle-like locks or inherit a wavy mane from their retriever parent which makes a dire need for regular haircuts and grooming. Though every haircut gets fit to doodles, to give your goldendoodle a cute look and an amazing hairstyle here is a detailed ideas list of goldendoodle haircuts.
Let’s learn the details of ideas for a goldendoodle haircut.
Goldendoodle puppy/teddy bear haircut
One of the most popular doodle haircuts that can maximize your furry friend’s cuteness level. A puppy cut gives your dog fluffy, rounded ears, round facial features, and soft round paws. This cut includes cutting the hair from the body in half to three inches long length, short to medium hair around the tail, and clearly trimmed around the feet.
Round, short, feathered trimming around the head and ears give your dog a true teddy bear-like appearance. The teddy bear haircut not only gives your dog a classic and tidy look but also prevents the matting of hair and makes them easy to comb. The goldendoodle puppy cut is a high-maintenance haircut and requires daily brushing, monthly grooming, and most importantly good skill for its execution.
Goldendoodle lion haircut
The lion haircut is done to give the goldendoodle a wild feline look. To do this, shave the dog’s coat all over the body to half an inch or quarter of an inch in length, and leave the long coat (pom-pom) on its tail, feet, and around the chest and neck area.
The shortened hair coat in a lion haircut is great for summers (short enough to prevent sunburn) and easy to maintain due to less matting and tangling. For the lion haircut, an experienced groomer is also required.
Goldendoodle lamb haircut
The lamb haircut is a new, trendy hairstyle for the goldendoodle, and it can make your dog looks fluffy and seems like your pup is bouncing while walking and running. In the lamb cut, the coat’s length on the legs is longer than the body, this makes the dog look more proportionate and rounded. The length of hairs on legs can be up to 4 inches, and depending upon your preference it can be long or short on the dog’s tail, ear, and body. This goldendoodle haircut style is easy to maintain.
