Where They Came From
The Standard Poodle is considered the oldest variety of the breed and is believed to have originated in Germany.
Paintings from as far back as the 15th century depict the breed, with some artifacts suggesting they existed as early as the 1st century. The name “poodle” comes from the German word pudel, describing water activity or one who plays in water.
The dog was used in water retrieval, so the coat was trimmed to help them swim. The trim involved shaving certain areas of the rear end but leaving leg hair to protect from sharp debris while hunting or patches of fur covering locations of vital organs susceptible to cold.
The Miniature and Toy Poodle varieties were bred down in size from the Standard Poodle. The American Kennel Club added the breed in 1887.
Though less energetic than other dogs, poodles need firm, consistent training and regular exercise to curb unwanted behaviors. They are sensitive to voice tones and don’t respond well to harsh discipline.
This friendly breed doesn’t like solitude, may suffer from separation anxiety and should never be housed in kennel or forced to live outdoors.
Standard Poodles are great with children and get along with other dogs, but all varieties should be socialized and slowly introduced when meeting other animals.
