Dogs’ Breeds – Poodles

March 9th, 2019

Poodles are very popular in the United States. Whether standard, miniature or toy, Poodles are active, proud and very smart creatures. They can weigh from 10-15 pounds – miniatures – to 60-70 pounds (male standard). They have a life expectancy from 10 to 18 years and belong to the non-sporting group.

Poodles are very people oriented, which means that they’re always trying to please their owners. They are easily trained and extremely intelligent, enjoying a variety of sports that include agility, tracking and obedience. They have a good performance as water retrievers, competing in dock diving and in retriever hunt tests.

Poodles require a good level of exercise, as they are energetic! They enjoy being busy and owners can take advantage of it, by tossing toys, sticks or balls for them. They are also good companions for jogs and long walks with humans, making them a good choice for an active owner.

It’s recommended that poodles see a groomer frequently to be well brushed and combed, which prevents coat matting. Otherwise, their hair mats near the roots and there’s a need to shave off to start all over with new hair growth. Our professional groomers are able to provide a wide range of services to help you keep your buddy looking great!

As poodles live long, all the family can enjoy a happy and healthy life together! Come to Hollywood Houndz to have advice about food and shop for accessories for your furry friend!
