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.

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.

How much does a chocolate toy poodle cost or is it the same for all colors?

1 Comment

The solid colorations a Poodle can be (no matter the size) are Apricot, Black, Blue, Brown, Cafe Au lait, Cream, Gray, Red, Silver, Silver beige, and White. The coloration of the puppy should not change the price of the puppy in most circumstances. The only time it should change the price is if the coloration of a puppy is a 'throw-back' color from a grand or great-grand parent that was not in the parents. This puppy then has a higher chance of throwing that color back into the linage, and then this pup should be registered and worked with in hopes of breeding. However, if the dog is being sold as a pet-only, so he/she will be neutered or spayed, then the price of the puppy should not be any different.

How do I get my 4 month old toy poodle to eat kibble with his soft food?

1 Comment

This would all depend on whether or not you plan on changing the dog over to only kibble, or if you plan on doing both. I would recommend doing both, as there are benefits to both wet and dry food. The easiest way is to start out slowly, adding 1/4 the amount of kibble he will be eating on a regular basis with the soft food. Mix thoroughly to ensure he does not just eat around the kibble. Continue adding more and more kibble each day until he is eating the correct amount of kibble and soft food.

What’s the difference between Yoy Poodles & Maltese dogs?

There are many differences between different breeds of dogs. That includes the Toy Poodle and the Maltese. The best thing to do is to contact a couple of breeders of the two breeds and have some conversations with them. They will be able to tell you if either breeds work for your family and lifestyle.

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!

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.
