Why standard poodles?

There is a common misconception from those who are not familiar with the breed to view standard poodles as frail and less than perfect. This is one of the biggest myths in the dog world—standard poodles serve as a top AKC breed with flawless show-ring presence, as well as a man’s best friend sitting in the duck blind. The truth is, standard poodles simply have more intelligence, talent, and beauty than most other breeds. They do so much more than prance around a show ring. Standard poodles love to be entertained, love to train, and love to please. They will do anything their master wants them to do. Standard poodles are energetic, athletic, and elegant animals that excel in obedience competitions, agility, therapy, frisbee, rally, service dog, show rings, hunting, and serving as companion animals.


This breed requires regular maintenance with a grooming roughly every 4-6 weeks and a good amount of daily exercise. Just like all breeds each dog has a different personality and their energy level varies from mild to high. At a minimum they require brisk walks, running, swimming, and play sessions to keep them satisfied, fit, and calm. If you are looking for a dog that is medium to large in size, a combination of sturdiness and athleticism with elegance and grace, has a coat that is a non-shedding, hypo-allergenic, is lively and playful, is easy to train and housebreak, and is one of the brightest and most attentive of all breeds—a standard poodle is the dog for you.
