Overview
This ancient breed appears in three varieties: Standard, Miniature, and Toy. The Standard is the oldest. The Poodle was originally developed to be a water dog that retrieved game fowl. Favored by royalty as well as gypsies, this versatile breed was able to master many tasks and trades and maintain a reputation as a fine companion.
Character
The Poodle is an agile, athletic, and graceful breed. They are considered to be one of the most intuitive, attentive, and intelligent breeds. Lively and playful, they have a tremendous sense of humor and a true love of life. Poodles are a breed of distinction, elegance, and dignity.
Temperament
One of the most popular breeds in the world, the Poodle is loyal and deeply devoted to their owner and family. They thrive on human companionship and are extremely sensitive to their familys moods and emotions. The Poodle may become overly attached to one particular family member and suffer from separation anxiety. The Standard and Miniature varieties are typically more amiable than the Toy variety, which has a tendency to be neurotic. The Standard does well in a home with children and other household pets. The Miniature and Toy varieties are best suited for homes with older, considerate children. The Poodle is reserved with strangers and makes a good watchdog. This breed has a tendency to bark excessively.
Care
The Poodle requires extensive grooming. Professional clipping must be done every six to eight weeks. The coat may be groomed in three different styles: the Pet Clip, English Saddle, and Continental. Bathing should only be done when necessary using a mild shampoo. Daily brushing is highly recommended to prevent mats and tangles. It is important that the Poodles teeth and ears are checked and cleaned on a consistent basis. This breed is prone to cataracts, PRA, allergies, skin disorders, diabetes, epilepsy, and heart disease.
Coat
The Poodle has a dense, harsh coat that is either curly or corded. The color of the coat comes in such solid colors as silver, cream, gray, blue, black, white, apricot, red, caf-au-lait, and brown. It is possible to have a Parti patterned coat. However, that type of coat is not accepted in the show ring. This breed sheds little to no hair.
Training
Highly trainable and eager to please, the Poodle requires early socialization and obedience training. With their sensitive nature they do not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. The Poodle does best with fairness, firmness, respect, patience, and consistency. They excel at learning tricks, including agility, retrieving, and competitive obedience.
Activity
The Poodle enjoys swimming, family play sessions, and securely leashed walks. They greatly benefit from regular opportunities to romp and run off lead in a safe area. Poodles will do okay in an apartment or condominium dwelling provided they are sufficiently exercised and stimulated to help curtail their tendency to excessively bark, and to keep them physically fit.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Standard Poodle puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Poodles come in a variety of different colors. Including blue, black, white, gray, silver, brown, café-au-lait, apricot, and cream. Some can also come in what is called "Party" color, which is a mixture of a solid color such as black or brown and white.

poodle skinny for size I have a 2 year old Standard poodle, he is 47lb to me he seems too slim, eats very little, I will like to see him gaining some weight, what do you recommend?

Some poodles are thin, naturally. If you have not taken him to the vet to rule out internal parasites or other health problems, that would be the first step. If everything looks good, you can take a look at his diet. I find that poodles, and all dogs, do well on a raw diet. I personally feed K9 Natural and raw, meaty bones. I hope this helps.

Hello, Poodles have varying personalities and activity levels. Adults make excellent companions for elderly people. Try searching for a trained adult (over 2 years old) that is being rehomed. Make sure you are able to meet the poodle before you purchase, to ensure you like the personality...and that you are not getting a "kennel" dog with personality/behavior issues.

Standard Poodles are excellent hunters, when properly trained. They were originally water hunting dogs.

What (if any) difference is there between Poodles and Bichon Frise? I mean, they look exactly... What (if any) difference is there between Poodles and Bichon Frise? I mean, they look exactly alike, well to me they do. From what I've been reading, their temperment and care seems to be similar as well. Is there a difference?

The Bichon does look a little like a toy poodle, however they are two separate breeds. Many dogs are descended from other breeds, hence the similarity. However over the years dogs were bred for specific purposes (i.e. herding sheep, tending cattle, guarding other animals) so they developed into separate breeds. Sometimes they retain a slight similarity.
