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.
