Miniature Poodle Questions

What are the size ranges for Miniature Poodles?

There are four different standards for Poodles; the Toy, the Miniature, the Moyen and the Standard. For the Miniature, the Poodle should stand between 11 - 15 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh in between 14 - 17 lbs. Obviously the Toy Poodle will be smaller than the Miniature; while the Moyen and the Standard Poodle will be larger than the Miniature.

Are Miniature Poodles good with small children?

The miniature Poodle is a sweet, loyal companion for the right person or family. Small children are not recommended though because the Miniature Poodle, especially as a puppy is very small and can be injured easily. A jump to get away from an over-excited child off of the couch or even a rough grab can hurt them. All interactions between a puppy or dog of any age or size and a child under the age of 13 should be supervised at all times.

At what age can a Miniature Poodle puppy be separated from his mom?

30-45 days old

Although most puppies are weaned enough that they can get by without Mom's milk at 6 weeks, it is much better to wait until at least 8 weeks before sending them off to their new homes.

Puppies that leave their mother too soon are at greater risk of separation anxiety (when the owner leaves the dog barks or howls, or has "accidents" in the house, or chews up the owner's possessions out of anxiety). Poodles are also quick learners, and if Mom is a well-behaved dog, waiting until at least eight weeks old to allow the puppy to learn from Mom as long as he/she would be in your best interest. Mom will teach her pup how to be submissive and how to behave with other dogs. Puppies who spend more time with Mom are less likely to be dog-aggressive later on. There are many, many benefits to waiting for an older puppy, especially from a good breeder that will also begin house training. In the long run, waiting a few extra weeks will both benefit you and your new Miniature Poodle pup!

I have two puppies that were sold to me. I was wondering what type of breed they are. I was told they were Miniature Poodles but took them to the vet and I forgot to ask. They had told me they were Maltese/Miniature Poodles. How would I know, or how could I tell what breed they really are?

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.
