What are Poodles?
Poodles are one of the most popular breeds around the world! The reason is because they’re beautiful, intelligent dogs that are filled to the brim with energy. And they usually have great personalities. While these have long been considered a French dog breed, they really originated in Germany! In Germany, this dog breed was bred to be water/retriever dogs.
When it comes to Poodle sizes, it can be confusing. They generally come in three sizes which include standard (the largest), miniature (medium-sized), and toy (the smallest). While they come in three sizes, they’re all considered Poodles and you’ll find they carry the same breed standards.
Poodles have a curly coat, which can be unruly and become matted if not clipped regularly. Many people with allergies choose Poodles as their companions because they don’t shed as much. The most common coat colors are white, apricot, silver, black, and chocolate. You may sometimes see a Poodle with reddish, or cream, or even blue hair—these colors are pretty, but not quite as common.
When it comes to personality, it’s very hard not to fall in love with Poodles. They’re extremely intelligent and easy to train. Plus, they’re lively, active and sometimes can be quite the clown! These dogs crave attention and can develop habits if they don’t get enough attention. They easily become bored and may have a barking issue when home alone.
Poodles can also be very protective of their homes and family; sometimes they may be aggressive to people outside their home, or even to other dogs.
Poodles, when cared for well through their lives, can live a lot longer than other breeds. This breed has an average life span of 10 to 18 years, and can vary in size from 45-70 lbs. They’re prone to certain health issues including:
- Addison’s Disease
- Cushing’s Disease
- Patellar luxation
As far as training goes, these dogs are so smart that it’s easy to train them! And they do well with kids, as long as the dog has been properly socialized.
As you can see, poodles are great dogs to have! They make wonderful fun, intelligent fur babies to have at your side!
There you have it! We hope you’ve enjoyed this article and even more, we hope you’ve found the perfect name for your Poodle fur baby!
