My dogs have been chosen for both conformation and temperament. They must exemplify both traits. Because of their temperament, Standard Poodles make awesome family pets. They do not shed and are hypoallergenic (dander free). They are also easily housebroken and adapt to family situations quickly.
When my puppies are born I make sure they are socialized from the beginning. I encourage my grandchildren and other kids to come and play with them.
My yard is fenced in and the puppies are free to roam. I also have two horses and two barn cats that the pups love to be around. This gives the pups a great start to a well socialized life!
Although poodles are generally very healthy. They are one of the deep chested breeds that can get bloat if not fed correctly. They should be fed 2-3 times a day and not allowed vigorous exercise before or after eating.
Poodles do require room to run and will need grooming every 6 to 8 weeks. Anyone can learn how to clip a poodle with the right equipment and I would be willing to teach you.
