If you own a Goldendoodle, Labradoodle, Aussiedoodle or any of the Poodle hybrids… then you’ve probably already experienced taking your beautiful Doodle to the groomer only to have it come back looking somewhat like a poodle. If your just adopting your Doodle puppy then your in luck because I’m here to forewarn you. This does not need to happen to you.
There is something called “The Doodle Do” and more and more groomers are becoming familiar with what we mean when we ask for this at the groomers.
We want our Doodles to look like Doodles... we think Teddy Bear.. not Poodle. A Full face, rounded paws, short but not shaved…full beautiful tails not little puff balls at the end of a shaved whip.
It’s a lot of work and I’ll warn you now.. not cheap.
My groomers charge me about $60-$100 dollars per dog and I have them cut about every 4 months but I have my dogs cut pretty short when I go.
I have my groomer shave down their bodies and then leave their heads pretty full.. the Teddy Bear face. I do have my poodles face shaved but my doodles.. I like to leave cute and curly.

Reports of a baby lion stalking the streets of Norfolk, VA were put to rest when the animal in question turned out to be a 3 year-old Labradoodle.
A 911 caller told Norfolk police yesterday that a small lion was wandering one off the city’s main streets “possibly looking for food,” according to the Virginian-Pilot. After confirming that the Virginia Zoo’s two lions were accounted for, police went to the scene and discovered that the “lion” was Charles the Monarch, a dog shaved to look like the mascot of Norfolk’s Old Dominion University. The labradoodle is a popular member of the ODU fanbase and can be seen at tailgates on game days.
This is shaved pretty short but this is the length I have all my dogs done once every 6 months.
