The Standard Poodle is the
tallest of the three poodles at up to 26 inches high at the shoulder. His
coat is dense and harsh and comes in a variety of solid colours including:
white, silver, blue, grey, brown, apricot, cafe-au-lait, cream, and black. A
Poodle's coat needs regular brushing and clipping to keep it
in shape and tangle-free. A godsend for people with allergies, this breed
does not shed.
intelligent, and loyal, the Standard Poodle has an affectionate and eager
to please personality. He will happily compete in obedience trials, work
in the field retrieving, hunt, work as a therapy dog, and even perform
tricks in an effort to please his people. He is a happy, good-natured dog
whose clean living habits make him a pleasure to own.
Standard Poodles are good with children
and other household pets, and are keen watch dogs. They learn quickly and
are easy to train. Standard Poodles are energetic dogs who enjoy all forms
of exercise. Running, swimming, retrieving, walking, or jogging alongside
his owner are all activities enthusiastically enjoyed by Standard Poodles.
