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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Toy 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.

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.

? toy poodle? Or simply the best dog on earth? I have a 4 year old rescue which I have been told by vets that she seems to be a purebred toy silver poodle. She has a wide pure white shawl around her neck and down her belly. Could she be a pure poodle? She sure looks like some of the pictures.

The only way to know if your dog is a pure-bred or what breeds make up your dog is to have your dog DNA tested. You can buy them online or at your vet for an average cost of $45.00 - $85.00.

DON'T feed your dog cat food. It is a BAD for them!! A grain-free, high quality dog food is the best thing to feed your dog. Some brands to look at are Acana, Origjn, Taste of the Wild, Life Mates, Now and Go!

You should NEVER feed ANY dog with cat food. I use Purina Pro-Plan about 1/2 a cup a day for my toy poodles. Standard poodles call for more.

The pulse rate is determined by counting the number of beats per minute. Most adult dogs at rest maintain a rate of 60 to 160 beats per minute.

I had a poodle that lived to be 21. But it all depends on the dog, its breeding, the diet he has been fed.. things like that. I think the average is about 15 years.

Just let your poodle drag the leash around a few times a day for about 5-10 minutes, supervised. Then, once he's ingoring it, just pick up the end and carry it without putting any pressure on it, let him lead you around a while. Once he is comfortable with that, you can start getting him used to going with you with special treats and LOTS of praise. No forcing him at all. Make him enjoy the leash because it means spending special time with you. Best wishes!

I would take your poodle to a vet and have him checked. Its possible he may have an ear infection and that can cause him to be off balance too. Your vet can also recommend a good diet to put him on for him to lose weight.

Never buy a toy poodle before 8 weeks unless you have experince with the breed. Most breeders will not sell one until then and only if it is weaned and eating good on its own. Small toy breeds are susceptible to hypoglycemia which is low blood sugar. If they do not eat for even a few hours then thier sugar can drop so low that it can be life threatning and you will have an unnessesary possibly costly but preventable trip to the vet.

Keep the poodle away from the baby for the most part, bring them gradually together when the poodle is calm. Make sure to give the poodle a small treat when they are around the baby. Take the babies hand and gently stroke the poodle to show the baby and the poodle it is a fun activity!

what is the merle gene in poodles?

1 Comment

Anonymous

The merle gene is not a standard pattern in poodles, it had to have been introduced by crossing with another breed. Poodles naturally come in solid, parti, and phantom. Merle is a foreign gene/pattern, usually found in herding breeds. I would worry about someone breeding for merles in poodles. I do hope they understand the dangers of breeding merles and are honest enough with their puppy customers to explain that the pups they are producing are NOT pure poodles.

This is a question no one can answer. You will need to call the vets in your area and see what they charge for a office call, vaccinations, spaying or neutering and cleaning teeth. A big expense will be grooming. Check and see what several of the groomers in your area charge. Of course this is something you can learn to do yourself. There are books, cd's that you can help you learn how to do it. Some local Jr. Colleges offer grooming classes. Check with your breeder and see what food they recommend. You need a good quality food for SMALL BREED PUPPIES.

Although you can find a lot of information on-line, it is better to visit dog shows regularly and observe! Further more I suggest you go to classes to help you with the finer detail of showing your dog. I have found that some the AKC judges will often offer handling classes. They do it in groups but some are even willing to do individual classes to teach you and your dog how to handle the show ring.

I just put my poodle down .. he was 18 years old .. and because he was bred irresponsibly - he had a deformoty on his dew claw and suffered from epilipsy mostly when stressed. By the time I put him down, he had suffered from slight cataracs and he was quite deaf for a couple years. Also had had a couple teeth taken out .. but after all he was 18. When he started loosing control of his bladder it was time. Best friend I ever had. . was hyper and playful right to the end.

You can find poodles all over the Internet for $500 and $600, but I will be very, very careful as there are many puppy mills out there. They do not care what happens after a bad breeding. They just want to get the money. A responsible Poodle breeder will have his/her dogs tested before they mate them, to make sure they don't have genetic disorders. One example is to have the Optigen test (blood test) done to make sure the dog you breed/breed to, does not cary the gene to become blind later. NO responsible breeder, that has her/his dogs tested, will sell you a puppy for $500. You look at a much higher amount, but you will be certain you don't have high vet bills every month.

No, I am sorry. I breed toy poodles and I do not have to test their blood. Nor do I have to charge someone the ridiculous amount of $900. I have never had any health problems with any of my puppies. Also, I am NOT a puppy mill! We charge so the average person is able to afford to buy one of our puppies.
