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.

The Standard Poodle dog seems to have the personality I am looking for. I do have 5 children and work full time. Am I not thinking correctly? Is the responsibility too overwhelming? I don't think it is but please share your thoughts.

If you are an experienced dog owner, then the responsibility should be no problem. However, if you have never had a dog or have only had a dog when you don't have kids then I would not get a puppy. However, there are many breed-based rescues out there and it wouldn't be hard to find an adult dog that would fit your lifestyle. This way the adult dog gets adopted, you don't have to raise a puppy and worry about house-training while taking care of 5 kids and working full time.

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.

When a poodle, or any dog is in heat it is generally very easy to tell. The Vulva tips back and swells a lot, There will be blood/fluid.

How many times in a year will poodles go into heat? How can you tell if they are pregnant only 10 months olds?
10/21/2012 3:12:27 PM

If a dog goes into heat on schedule then they can generally go into heat every 6 months. Some dogs do shorter times and some longer. If you have a 10 month old puppy that may be pregnant, and looking at the date you will know already. You will need to contact your vet and ask for an ultrasound after day 27 or so after mating. I hope all went well for your puppy if she was indeed pregnant.

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.

My female poodle is 8 mos old and since she has been 20 weeks old she's had Giardia, and I walk her and pick up her poop, do not allow her to go to dog parks etc. Yet, she will still eat her own poop when I atleast expect it. Therefore, it appears she's keeping Giardia. I'm so troubled and Ive tried pineapples, powders from the vets etc, but she keeps eating her poop when I atleast expect it, and the Giardia remains. HELP!

Girardia is found in water that is stale, like rain water in puddles, or a bowl that has old water in it. You need to get Bactrim Plus to treat her. I use a mixture of Bactrim and Sulfamexathone (may not be the correct spelling), pills that the vet crushes and puts in the liquid Bactrim. I would also use Albon to ward off any bacteria. Good luck!

You could have had your poodle spayed as early as 6 months, so since she is older anytime is fine. You could also have her spayed while she is in heat, it just costs more. The average heat cycle can last for about a month. She cannot actually become pregnant while she is bleeding it is right after the blood stops and it turns to a clear liquid that she can become pregnant.

My 3 yr old poodle who was groomed every 2 months, fed excellent dog food, exercised usually daily and has all the attention one can give, he is also in excellent health in almost every way. But he has lost most of his white coat, and the new hair that grew in is strangely dry, different texture and the color has now become dominantly red with white on head, legs sides and tail. Have been looking for reasons for this. Poodle was checked by vet, changed to raw dog food, vitamins, fish oil. He is very active eats everything. By far he the most respectful dog I have ever had personality plus, gentle soul. Anyone have any ideas.

I had the same thing happen to my white standard poodle some years ago. Sebatious Andonitus was thought to be the cause, she was the most loving of all the dogs I have owned( all standard poodles) and lived till 17 years of age. but she was pretty bald by the time she was five, but she didn't know I told her she was the queen dog.
