Living Area: Recently Poodles have gained a reputation as "foo-foo" apartment dogs, but the Poodle’s history shows that they were heavily relied upon working dogs and they maintain a high level of ability and energy. They should have a daily walk to burn off their excess energy and keep them calm and manageable in the house. A daily 30 minute to hour long walk daily should be enough, a session of fetch in the yard or park will also help. Additionally, your Poodle should live in the house with your family. They are very people oriented dogs and would not enjoy being primarily outdoor pets.

About this Breed

The Standard Poodle is a medium to large sized dog with a dense, curly coat, a long slender face and muzzle, and generally delicate stature. Poodles tend to weight much less than other breeds of similar size. Also known as the French Poodle the Standard Poodle is the largest of three recognized sizes for the poodle. The Standard Poodle stands over 15 inches at the highest point of the shoulders, the Miniature stands between 15 to 10 inches, and the Toy stands under 10 inches at the shoulders. The Poodle's length should be about the same as its height and its back should be basically level with a stable squared off stance. Their tails are docked to about half their original lengths, leaving around 10 inches or so. The teeth should form a scissors bite. The coat should be very dense, curly, and grows continuously so it can be groomed in many different styles and shapes. They also don’t have that strong "doggie" smell that many dogs have. They have webbed feet like other retrievers from their history as water retrieval dogs and Poodles excel in hunting competitions, agility, flyball, and obedience. Their wonderful personalities, capability, and unique non-shedding coat have made the Poodle extremely popular as a pet around the world. Someone interested in choosing a Poodle as a pet has the widest array of choices of any breed; no other breed has as many different options of size and color. These dogs are great with children and other dogs. They can be somewhat reserved with new people but with a lot of socialization in puppy hood they can become very outgoing dogs, and will warm up to newcomers quickly.
