In the Beginning
  • Clyde is a Chocolate, Standard Poodle. Clyde is Sebastian (black standard poodle) Brother from the same litter.

  • (Born 2010)

  • We received a phone call from Clyde and Sebastians Breeder Carol, asking if we had room for another dog, as the owner of Clyde (and sister Bonnie) was going to have to be rehomed due to a council issue. We went and met Clyde, and fell in love with him at first sight, fantastic temperament, he was loveable, cuddly and up close and personable.


  • When we first met Clyde he was the proud father of a beautiful litter of 10 standard poodles, and what a gentle father he was.

  • Clyde came to us at Therapeutic Dog Services in 2011 and was accepted immediately into the TDS Inc Pack.

About Clyde
  • Comical, entertaining, and brimming with personality. 

  •  eager to please by being calm, confident and placid.

  • Clyde is a real cuddle muffin, he loves to be patted and loves being up close and personal

  • Clyde is a balanced, calm dog whom can work a room. Clyde can be off lead and knows exactly what his role is in a facility visit. He knows what to do and does what he is told, and how to get along peacefully and gracefully in this world.

  • works fabulously with other dogs in the therapy dog pack, and when he comes across a strange dog for the first time out in the community, he shows good manners. 

  • is very friendly right from the get-go and will approach anyone and everyone

  • Due to Clydes breed (Standard Poodle) it has been very important on how we raised him as this determines how he turns out.  Exposure and On the job experience training has been an extremely important process for him. We can proudly state that Clyde is one of our best working therapy and animal assisted intervention dogs, he is a natural at it.

  • Clydes best pack friend member would be Sebastian, his litter brother.  (Black Standard Poodle) They keep each other company , they play together, and keep each other entertained out side of their working times.

  • When Clyde is not working you will find him entertaining himself with the pack, playing chasing games and ball games between them all, on his down time you can find him seeking out a couch for comfort and loves the outdoors, fresh air through his fur.

About The Poodle

  • Poodles are highly trainable dogs that rarely need to be told what to do more than a few times, a keen working intelligence that makes the dog easy to command

  • a warm and personable disposition with a jolly sense of humor. 

  • Standard Poodles are the most highly recommended for families with children. 

  • They have a kindly demeanor and a love of playing games; 

  • Classified as highly energetic, poodles can also get bored fairly easily, and have been known to get creative about finding mischief: they require walks, toys, and games of fetch regularly to remain happy, they thoroughly love their work as therapy dogs because they have something to do with their day and a purpose.

  • Poodles are often cited as a hypoallergenic dog breed. Unlike most dogs that have double coats, poodles have a single layer coat (no undercoat is present) composed of the dense, tightly curled coat which slows the loss of dead hair by trapping it in the curls. Frequently brushed and bathed this removes hair, but also controls the other potent allergen, saliva.  Our poodles are groomed every day and every 6 to 8 weeks professional groomer in which gets rid of the build-up of hair. They could be considered as hypoallergenic (though not completely allergen-free). The poodle does shed in minimal amounts, but instead of the fur coming off the dog, it becomes tangled in the surrounding hair, but are not as likely to trigger allergies as much as many other breeds.
