What is a teddy bear poodle?
Most people say they are nothing like poodles. Teacup teddy bear-faced poodles will look like puppies forever. It’s all about the adorable round fuzzy face.
These poodles have a round head and eyes with a short nose and a wide muzzle.
In fact, teacup poodles and toy poodles if kept in a teddy bear clip when groomed, they will look like puppies for a lifetime. A teddy bear clip leaves hair on the face and feet and is rounded off with scissors. In a traditional poodle clip, the face and feet are usually shaved.
Teddy Bear Teacup puppies and TB Toy Poodle puppies are gaining popularity. People who don’t like the traditional look of poodles are falling in love with these dogs. They enjoy the intelligence and clean, non-allergenic, hypoallergenic benefits of having a new-looking poodle.
I have people telling me all the time, I wish my puppy would never grow up and look like a puppy forever. A little poodle with a tuberculosis face is exactly what you are looking for. Teacup poodles generally weigh 4 pounds or less, small toy poodles generally weigh 4 to 5 pounds, and a toy poodle generally weighs 5 to 8 pounds. Each of these sizes will be registered as a Toy Poodle because Poodles 10 inches and under are registered as a Toy.
Teddy Bear Teacup Poodle puppies and Teddy Bear Toy Poodle puppies are a specialty and are as cute as can be. Yes, they are recognized by AKC.
I have been raising poodles for over 30 years, I have found that once you have a poodle you will never change your breed. They are like having a 4-legged child, a new member of your family. Poodles can adapt to almost any lifestyle. They have tons of individual character, they are funny, lovable, and protective. Their soft hair is very comfortable and wonderful to the touch, and they love to be pampered.
The Teacup Poodle and Toy Poodles are great for apartment living and people with small houses.
What to tell your hairdresser. The teddy bear clip requires the face and legs to be hand cut into a round / symmetrical shape.
I recommend that you find a hairdresser who specializes in drying lint and hand scissors. Poodles are best viewed in a 1-inch long clip with scissors. Take a picture with you to show your hairdresser. Manual scissors and lint drying is an art, a specialty. Make sure your groomer is qualified and does not shave your dog.
