Elegant. Proud. Clever. The Poodle is a remarkable dog, as shown by the many best-in-show awards it has won. But behind blue ribbons, fancy hairstyles, and regal attitude is a friendly family dog with a long history and a lot of skills.
Poodle is the smartest dog breed in the world. They are easy to train and can do just about any job you give them, and you’ll wish to give them a job. Poodles can be destructive when they are bored and don’t have anything to do. But energetic owners who can fulfill their actual needs will find a happy, smart, easy to train and loyal family member.
History of poodle dogs
The Poodle is the oldest dog breed that was made to hunt waterfowl. Many historians say that the Poodle came from Germany, but that it became its breed in France.
Many people think that the breed came about when Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Hungarian, as well as Russian water dogs were bred with each other. Other historians think that the North African Barbet that was brought to the Iberian Peninsula is one of the Poodle’s ancestors. After that, the breed went to Gaul, where its hunting skills were put to use. After that, the breed went to Gaul, where its hunting skills were put to use.
Size of Poodle dog
Poodles come in three sizes: small, medium, and large. They all come in the same breed but in different sizes.
- The Toy Poodle is 10 inches and 6 and 9 pounds weighs.
- The Miniature Poodle weighs 15 to 17 pounds and his height is 11 to 15 inches tall.
- The Standard Poodle is at least 15 inches tall (usually 22 inches), and both male and female dogs weigh between 45 and 70 pounds.
How to care for Poodle?
Poodles are happy in any type of home, from residences to mansions, as long as they get plenty of exercise and people to play with.
This breed is smart and quickly learns, but owners should always be careful because it’s just as easy to teach a Poodle bad behaviors as it is good ones.
Feeding Schedule of Poodle dogs
1.5 to 3 cups of greater dry food per day, split into two meals, is the recommended daily amount. 3/4 to 1 cup for miniatures; 1/4 to 1/2 cup for toys.
Just like people, dogs are all different, so they don’t need to have the same quantity of food. It’s almost a given that a dog who likes to run around needs more than a dog who likes to sit around. The food quality that you buy is also very important. If the quality of food is greater then it will feed your dog well.
Don’t leave food out for your Poodle all the time. Instead, measure his food and give him twice a day.
The Personality of Poodle dogs
People who like Poodles often use the words smart, loving, loyal, and playful to explain the breed’s personality. Fans also say that the Poodle has “an air of distinction,” which is a hard-to-describe but easy-to-spot sense of dignity.
Even though he looks like a king, the Poodle has a silly side and loves to play. He’s every time up for any kind of game.
Colors of Coats of Poodle
There are the following coat colors of poodles:
The hair is curly, wiry, and thick, and because of its unique texture, it can be trimmed, clipped, groomed, shaved, and shaped in a lot of different ways. But if you want your dog to compete in the show ring, you can’t go too crazy with the styling. The American Kennel Club only lets Poodles compete in conformation competitions with four different clip styles.
How to do Grooming of Poodle
A poodle’s rough, curly, single-layer coat grows all the time and doesn’t shed much. It needs to be cut often for it to look its best. Most owners keep hair short so that it is easier to care for. You can learn to do it yourself, or you can start taking your poodle to a groomer every four to six weeks.
Children and Poodle
The Poodle is a great dog for kids to have as a friend, but young children who don’t know how to manage a dog could hurt a Toy Poodle, which is the smallest and most fragile type of the breed.
As with any breed, you should teach kids how to address and touch dogs, and you should always watch when dogs and young kids are together to make sure no one bites or pulls on the other’s ears or tails. Teach your child never to go up to a dog while it’s eating or napping. Do not leave your child alone with a dog, no matter how nice and lovely the dog is.
Poodle and other pets
Poodles who grow and develop with other dogs or pets in the house or who have a lot of chances to play with them in group training courses, dog parks, and other places will enjoy their company. If your Poodle has been used to being the only pet in the house, he might need time and special training to get used to a new pet.
The health of Poodle dogs
The lives of most Poodles are long, happy, and healthy. But, like all breeds, they can have health problems, such as:
- Hip dysplasia
- Eye disorders
- Idiopathic epilepsy
- Sebaceous adenitis
- Von Willebrand’s disease
- Immune-mediated disorders
Legg-Calve-Perthes and luxating patellas are two orthopedic problems that are more likely to happen in Toy and Miniature Poodles than in Standards. The Standard variety is more likely to get gastric dilatation with volvulus (bloat) and sebaceous adenitis.
