Poodles: Easy to train
The Poodle does however require being intensively groomed and because unlike other dogs, he won’t shed too much hair, it adds to the impression that the Poodle is not very dog-like at all. However, the thing that strikes you the most about the Poodle personality is his amazing intelligence which is something that the breed has always been famous for. In addition, Poodles are also very versatile and they adapt very well to different situations and environments and can serve many a role that in turn depends on its current situation.
Standard Poodles, however, require a bit more exercising than do the toy and miniature versions and the reason for this is their bigger size. However, Poodles are also quite mellow and do not jump about too much nor do they act too nervous and they have an affinity for people as well as children. Also, you will not face any trouble in training your Poodle though he does not like being caged, and is, in fact quite a free-bird if truth be told.
You can expect to be pleasantly surprised to learn that despite their small size Poodles are really quite strong physically and thus should be kept leashed to prevent any accidents from taking place. However, because of their remarkable intelligence they can read what their owners want from them and thus will act accordingly. Having been originally bred as hunting dogs, Poodles are good swimmers and are also very fond of water and thus love their baths and won’t mind being given a bath regularly.
Another feature about the breed is that a Poodle has hair that grows much like human hair grows and it continues growing, unlike other dogs whose hair stops growing when they have reached a certain length. Also, Poodles love to be taken for rides in a car and will jump at any opportunity to be on the road. He is also very easily trained and is a friendly soul that has a sweet disposition as well.
