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.

Annual cost of owning a Standard Poodle puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Standard Poodles true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

Is it truly accurate that the Standard Poodle barks excessively?

3 Comments

Anonymous

The Standard Poodle is a talkative breed and they do like the sound of their voice. Some will bark more often than others of course as every dog is different. The best thing to do is to start early on self control and a stop cue to keep your Poodle from talking up a storm.

Anonymous

The standard does love to talk, but, they love to please you more. Patience and talking to your poodle will cure almost any fault. They love, love their masters and want to be your friend. This highly intelligent breed learns quickly and remembers everything, so, be careful what and how you train them. They do not respond to harsh training and can freeze in place if afraid or confused. Love and tenderness will win lots of rewards with this breed. It will amaze you. They are almost human in behavior and affection. Get ready for hugs and kisses.

We have found the exact opposite. Our two Standards are very quiet! Unless someone is approaching the house or the cattle are out of the fence, our standards are wonderfully quiet and pleasant to have around!!

There are four sizes/types of Poodles. The Toy Poodle, the Miniature Poodle, the Moyen Poodle, and the Standard Poodle.

Anonymous

In America, the AKC does not recognize the Moyen Poodle, although sometimes European it is. So I would say in USA it is Toy, Miniature and Standard Poodle.

Poodle sizes: Teacup, Toy, Miniature, Standard, Giant and Royal

How to housebreak 5 mos old Poodle, Standard?

Positive Reinforcement is the best way to house break any breed of dog. Put a 2 - 3 hour timer on and every time it goes off, take your puppy outside. Praise and give him/her treats when he/she goes. Do not allow your puppy the run of the house. Either crate him/her or tether him/her to you if you can not watch him/her the entire time. If there is an accident, clean it up with an enzyme cleaner. Do not scold your puppy unless you catch them in the act. In which you should clap your hands and say "No" in a firm voice (not yelling) and then take your pup outside. Praise when they finish.

Why can't I find any Standard Poodle puppies in Reno, NV to adopt?

It may be that you are looking at the wrong type of listings. Start with the AKC website to find a breeder within the Reno area. If you plan on adopting, not purchasing then you may have to look into a breed-specific rescue. Contacting your local shelters and giving them your information is another way to find a specific breed of dog. They will look into other rescues/shelters and contact you if there is a Standard Poodle up for adoption. The Poodle breed itself is a very popular breed and not found in shelters very often.
