Toy Poodles: Temperament

Toy Poodle - Adult & Puppy Pictures, Size, & Temperament

Country of Origin: France has been officially recognized as the Poodles country of origin, but the Poodles earlier ancestors came from central Asia. The German variety has probably influenced the modern breed most (Poodle is German for splash or puddle). In 18th and 19th century Europe, the Poodle served a wide variety of purposes, including duck hunting, guiding, and later circus performing, from whence the modern grooming style likely arose. The Poodle became a popular pet for the French aristocracy, and in time was officially adopted as the national dog. Poodles were imported to America in the 20th century. They slowly rose in popularity and eventually became the countrys most popular dog. Famous Poodles include author John Steinbecks dog Charley, subject of the book Travels with Charley: In Search of America, and Weird Als Poodle Bela, whouhm sat on his head for the album cover of Poodle Hat.

Size: Toy Poodles have a shoulder height of up to 25 cm (10 in) and weigh 3-4 kg (6-9 lbs). Poodles are very elegant in appearance. They have a long, narrow muzzle, slight stop (point at which the forehead meets the muzzle), dark eyes, and wide ears. Toy Poodles have flat backs, straight, docked tails and small, oval feet. Their length is approximately the same as their height.

Coat: The Toy Poodle has a distinctive fine, frizzy, wooly coat similar in texture to sheeps wool. Solid white is most common, but the coat may also be solid grey, brown, apricot, or black. There are three distinct grooming styles for show Poodles: puppy clip, continental clip, and English saddle clip. The puppy clip entails shaving the face, throat, feet, and base of the tail. The upper legs and hindquarters are also shaved in the continental clip (currently the most popular), leaving pom poms around the ankles. The English saddle clip is similar, but the hindquarters are left mostly unshaved. All show clips require heavy maintenance, thus pet clips commonly entail shorter hair over the entire body. Poodle hair can be formed in a corded style, in which the hair is allowed to mat into long, thing rows rather than being brushed out. This is difficult to maintain, and now rare. Toy Poodles do not shed, making them a good match for allergy sufferers, for which reason they are commonly used for crossbreeding.

You need to make sure you

Research appropriately.
- Inntial cost of the dog
- Cost of necessary vetting at time of purchase (if you adopt from a shelter, this will be done for you before you adopt the dog)
- Upkeep costs, poodles require a groomer and all dogs have yearly food and vet expenses.
- Think less about breed and more about temperament. What they want and what is right for them may be very different.
- How active are you and how active are they? A bored dog is a destructive and unhappy dog.
- How much time are you willing to spend on grooming?
- Think about training, small and toy breeds can be VERY difficult to housebreak even for experienced owners
