Teddy Bear Pomeranians Guide

Looking for a Teddy Bear Pomeranian? They’re not a separate breed because they’re just regular Pomeranians with a teddy-bear-looking haircut. The haircut has become very popular thanks to the Pomeranians like Boo.

If you’re thinking of giving your Pomeranian a teddy bear haircut for your Pom, be sure to do your research first. I talked to breeders, veterinarians, professional trainers, and groomers to get all the information I could find on teddy bear Pomeranians.

A teddy bear cut is when a dog’s hair is clipped short all around its body. This gives them a cute, fluffy appearance that resembles a teddy bear!

Here’s what I found out,

BEWARE: The Pomeranian is a type of dog that comes from a Spitz family. Just like Icelandic and Lapland sled dogs, they have really thick fur coats made up of two layers. This means that you have to be extra careful when grooming them or giving them a haircut – otherwise, you might ruin their cute fluffiness! Each individual Pomeranian has a unique face, so the way their Teddy Bear cut looks will also be different from one dog to another. In other words, they may not look as cool in real life as they do in pictures on social media!

Cost of a Teddy Bear Pomeranian

If you’re looking for a good-looking purebred Teddy Bear Pomeranian, be prepared to shell out some serious cash. These dogs typically cost between $1,000 and $2,000 – and for one reason. The Teddy Bear Cut doesn’t look great on every Pomeranian, so breeders can charge a premium price for the ones that do sport the unique trim.

When searching for a breeder, be sure to do your research to make sure they are breeding ethically.

Things to Consider Before Teddy Bear Cut

Find the Best Groomer

When it comes to finding a groomer for your Teddy Bear Pomeranian, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind.

First and foremost, you’ll want to find someone who is experienced with this breed of dog – they have specific grooming needs that not all groomers will be familiar with.

Secondly, you should make sure the person you’re entrusting your pup with is gentle and kind; these dogs are often quite small and delicate, so it’s important that they feel comfortable during their grooming session.

Finally, you’ll want to be sure the groomer is familiar with Teddy Bear Haircut. Otherwise, you’ll end up regretting the haircut until they grow their fur (hair) back. After shaving, it takes around 4-6 months to grow back the Pomeranian’s coat. For older Pomeranians, it may take more than a year to fully regrow the Pomeranian hair.

Beware of the Shedding Cycle

Beware of the shedding cycle; if your dog is blowing their coat (a process whereby they lose copious amounts of fur all at once), then giving them a haircut may do more harm than good as it’ll strip away their natural insulation against both cold and heat.

Your Pom will shed – but since some of the hair will be shorter because of the cut, you may notice patches of skin in between all that fluff.

The Comfort of Your Pomeranian

Think about how short or long you want the fur (hair) to be. As my vet told me, the shorter cuts are easier to take care of since less grooming is needed. But the problem is when they won’t provide the comfort and the protection of a long double coat.

Short hair doesn’t protect against heat as well as long hair does. Therefore your Pomeranian will be more susceptible to overheating if you cut their fur too short.

Also, keep in mind that Pomeranians have very dense fur coats. This means that even a small trim can result in a lot of hair being removed. If you’re not comfortable with this, it’s best to avoid getting a Teddy Bear cut and choose something else instead.

Jackets and Boots

Even though the Teddy Bear Pomeranian haircut makes them look really cute, they need extra care in cold weather since they don’t have as much fur to keep them warm. So if it’s cold outside, make sure to put a jacket on your Pom and some boots too!

Teddy Bear Pomeranians will no longer have the same level of insulation from the cold weather since they’ll be losing their double coat. Make sure to keep them at a comfortable temperature, so they don’t get sick.

Hair May Not Grow Back Again

Once you give your Pomeranian a trim, there is no guarantee that their fur will grow evenly. I have been asked this question hundreds of times, and uneven hair growth is a big issue among Pomeranians.

Before you take your Pom to the groomer, make sure you’re 100% certain that you want to change their appearance. Of course, every dog is different, and some do end up growing their hair back after being shaved or trimmed. But it’s always best to err on the side of caution and assume that theirs will be one of the cases where it doesn’t grow back – just in case!

Boo and Origin of Teddy Bear Cut

The teddy bear cut became popular thanks to the internet sensation “Boo, the cutest puppy ever.” Even though Boo has since passed away due to a heart attack, people still can’t get enough of the teddy bear haircut.

Boo had 15 million followers on Facebook and 534K followers on Instagram. His cute and cuddly appearance made him very popular. His owner, Irene Ahn, said she got him confused, and his coat couldn’t be combed out. In the end, the groomer transformed him into a stuffed bear.

His nose resembles that of a teddy bear’s nose, which sets him apart from other Pomeranians with the same haircut. So Boo has some interesting characteristics and cuteness that no other dog breed has. Therefore many people have tried to make their Pomeranian look like Boo in one way or another by cutting their hair into a Teddy Bear Cut.

What do People Think About Teddy Bear Pomeranians?

Teddy Bear Pomeranian Clipping

As a mother of two Pomeranians for six years, I have never been a fan of the Teddy Bear Pomeranian haircut. I think it makes them look like little yapping rats.

My sister, however, thinks they are the cutest things ever and loves when she brings her girl home from the groomers with their hair all styled up in this way. To each their own, I guess!

Phoebe Walton (Pomeranian Owner)

The teddy bear Pomeranian haircut is a popular choice among professional dog groomers. While the cut may be difficult to achieve, it often looks very cute on the finished product. However, regular trimmings are necessary to maintain this style and keep your Pom’s coat healthy.

Timothea Fernandez (Professional Groomer)

Many Pomeranian owners choose the teddy bear cut for their furry friend because it is relatively easy to maintain at home. This trim requires less brushing and combing than some of its longer-haired counterparts, making it a low-maintenance option for busy pet parents. Additionally, many find that the teddy bear cut makes their Pom look even more adorable!

Angela Tillery (Pomeranian Owner)

Teddy Bear haircuts on Poms can be risky due to how short they make the fur around the body. If not done properly by an experienced grooming professional could lead to health complications such as skin irritation or infection.

The teddy bear Pomeranian haircut has become popular these days. And that may be the same reason you’re reading this article. While the cut may be difficult to achieve, it often looks very cute in the end. But it may not work for all the Pomeranians.

Furthermore, regular trimmings are needed to maintain this style and keep the look. Otherwise, they’ll lose the Teddy Bear Look.

There are also some risks, such as uneven hair growth, health complications due to how short the fur is cut, and needing extra care in cold weather. But overall, many people think the pros outweigh the cons when it comes to this unique trim.
