Overview
Originating in France, the Toy Poodle enjoyed popularity as a gun dog, retriever of waterfowl, and circus performer. They are believed to have descended from a nearly extinct water dog known as the Barbet and the Hungarian Water Hound. Today this breed is primarily utilized as a show dog and companion.
Character
The Toy Poodle displays a proud and dignified demeanor. They are sturdily built and have an elegant and lively gait. This breed is agile, athletic, and spirited. The Toy Poodle's most distinctive features are their natural drop ears and webbed paws.
Temperament
The Toy Poodle breed is affectionate, loyal, clever, and demanding. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. If they become bored or lonely they will become destructive and bark incessantly. They are generally good with dogs and other household pets. The Toy Poodle does best with older considerate children. They are wary and suspicious of strangers, will alert their family to visitors or danger, and make good watchdogs. They are a happy and playful breed.
Care
The Toy Poodle must be bathed on a regular basis. The coat requires clipping every six weeks. There are four different clip styles: Show, Puppy, Continental, and English Saddle. It is important to regularly clean the ears and trim the nails. Proper dental hygiene is a must. Toy Poodle's are prone to ear infections, slipped stifle, eye problems, digestive and heart disorders, and skin conditions.
Coat
The Toy Poodle has hair instead of fur. The texture ranges from wavy and soft to wooly and coarse. This breed is hypoallergenic and non-shedding.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Toy Poodle is highly intelligent and considered to be one of the most trainable breeds. They are sensitive and will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Toy Poodle's do best with fairness, patience, consistency, and reward.
Activity
The Toy Poodle is suitable for city and rural living. This active breed requires daily walks and ample off lead playtime in a securely fenced yard.

Annual cost of owning a Toy 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 Toy 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.

Do you have to trim Toy Poodles every 6 weeks or is that just a suggestion?

You do not have to take your Toy Poodle to a groomer every 6 weeks if you do not want too. But that means that you need to be the one grooming your dog every week as the hair will be longer and get dirty/messy easier. Taking your Poodle to the groomer every 6 weeks ensures that the nails are clipped and the fur is trimmed down so you don't have to do as much if any work.

The average price of a Toy Poodle puppy is between $750.00 - $1000.00 per puppy.

If you are spending under a $1000.00 for a toy poodle - BUYER BEWARE - not the average price for a QUALITY and HEALTHY toy poodle. For a good toy, be willing and able to spend anywhere from $1200 to 1800 for a male and $2000+ for a female. If a breeder sells other breeds than poodles, then they should be questioned and vetted as many will be a puppy mill or back yard breeder.

If it is warm outside, take the Poodle when it wakes up, making sure to praise it when it goes. Do not focus on punishment if the Poodle has accidents inside. Also, if you catch it going take it outside immediately. Make sure if you find a puddle inside clean it up with vinegar and water, or a good cleaner but don't punish the puppy he wouldn't know what it was for. Keep doing that until they catch on. Poodles are bright dogs, and should be easily housebroken with a little effort in about two weeks.
