This lively dog is eager to please and easy to train. It is sensitive and devoted to family. Some bark a lot.
Originating in Central Europe during the 1500s this toy dog was used as a lapdog and companion. These small and devoted dogs are one of the easiest breeds to train. They are bright, alert, playful, lovely, eager to please, and responsive. They are very devoted to their families but may be reserved around strangers. They even make excellent watchdogs. They require daily mental and physical exercise with either an indoor game or a short walk outside. Ideal owners are singles, seniors, apartment dwellers, and families with older children. Poodles require grooming that entails brushing every day or two, and clipping their coats three to four times per year. When they shed, their hair does not fall out so it is important to brush it to prevent matting.
