Country of Origin, History of the breed
The Poodle originated in
Germany as a water Retriever.
Although listed as the eighth
most popular breed in 2006, Poodles enjoyed
the longest reign as the #1 breed in the United
States from 1960 until 1982.
A Poodle is of moderate build.
It should have an elegant, balanced appearance,
and should carry itself in a "proud"
or "dignified" manner. Most poodles
are proportionally long-legged dogs.

The long coat of the Poodle is
double. The outer coat is wiry curls. The undercoat
is thick and woolly. If unhindered, the outer coat
forms thin cylindrical mats known as cords.
Most are solid-colored, and many
registries only allow solid colors in conformation
shows. "Parti" (short for parti-colored)
Poodles have large patches of colors. "Phantom"
Poodles have the color pattern of a black-and-tan
dog, although not necessarily black and tan. Solid-colored
Poodles may either "hold" their color
(i.e., stay more or less the same color throughout
their lives) or "fade" or "clear"
to a lighter shade. Usually, the ears and the thicker
guard hairs hold more of the original color than
Poodles come in 3 sizes:
• Standard – over
• Miniature – 10-15";
• Toy – 10" and under;
• Standard – 45-70
• Miniature – 15-17 lbs.
• Toy – 6-9 lbs
Poodles are intelligent, alert,
and active. Arguably one of the most intelligent
breeds. Historically, their aptitude has made them
ideal for performing in circuses across the globe
for centuries. Otherwise notable is this breed's
keen sense for instinctual behavior. In particular,
marking and hunting drives are more readily observable
than in most other breeds. Even Toys will point
birds. Classified as highly energetic, Poodles can
also get bored fairly easily and have been known
to get creative about finding mischief.
Poodles are extremely people-oriented
dogs and, therefore, are eager to please. They are
excellent watchdogs, but unlike some working breeds,
don't usually become "one-person" dogs
when they are part of a family.
Standard Poodles in particular
tend to be good with children. They tend to be calmer
than Miniatures and Toys.
Miniatures are cheerful, sensitive,
and extremely smart. They love to learn tricks and
understand more words in human speech than most
breeds. They want to be included in all family activities.
They are perfectly suitable for apartment life,
if they get enough exercise.
Exercise & Training
Poodles are adaptable and easy
to train. Like most dogs, they appreciate daily
exercise, such as a walk or a play session. Most
are fairly agile and athletic.
The Poodle doesn’t shed.
It is thus perfect for allergy sufferers. Poodle
show clips require many hours of brushing and care
per week, about 10 hours/week for a standard poodle.
Poodles are usually clipped down as soon as their
show career is over and put into a lower-maintenance
cut. Pet clips are much less elaborate than show
clips and require much less maintenance.
The Poodle is prone to hip dysplasia,
epilepsy, Addison's disease, gastric dilatation
volvulus and infections of the ear due to poor circulation
of air around the heavy coat.
Standards are prone to many diseases:
cataracts and other eye problems, runny eyes, allergies
and skin problems, hip dysplasia, ear infections,
Von Wellebrand’s Disease, and bloat.
Miniatures are prone to many diseases: cataracts
and other eye problems, runny eyes, allergies and
skin problems, diabetes, epilepsy, heart disease,and

My dog is my buddy, now, instead of being a nuisance.
That little dog did everything I asked of him, almost
flawlessly. I can't remember a time when
I was any more proud."
"I trained Hamish
from your Mini course. He is now an obedient dog,
