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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

I cannot get my Toy Poodle to stop barking at the people that come into my home. She barks the whole time they are here... HELP!!!!!!!



Poodle's are quite vocal and a lot of them are possessive of their owners and/or homes. Since your dog is displaying negative behavior when someone comes to your home; I would suggest contacting a Positive Reinforcement Dog Trainer in your area. He/She will be able to work with you and your dog to get to the root of your dogs behavior and address it accordingly.


Your own reaction comes into play. Relax. Tell the pup in a calm voice, “it’s okay. It’s all right.” This works.


My latest Toy Poodle, now sixteen years old, has never been a barker because I have always made answering the door a fun experience. I acted like going to the door was just another fun game, using a high and happy voice.(Oh boy! Somebody's come to see you!) When friends came by they gave her a treat and payed with her for a minute or two. It worked for me! Good luck!

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

1 Comment


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.

Anonymous asked:
What is the average price of a toy poodle puppy?



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.

Anonymous asked:
I have a cream Toy Poodle that gets the dark tear stains on her face. What is the best thing to use to help get rid of the dark stains?



Angel Eyes is the best tear staining product that I have found on the market.


Try to use Vaseline as that worked wonders for my dog for nearly 16 years.
