Getting to know your Poodle

Great things come in small packages.

A smaller sized breed, Toy and Miniature Poodles are highly intelligent and affectionate, making great companion dogs. Extremely loyal to its owners, the Poodle has a good temperament but can be timid around new people. An active and intelligent dog, the Poodle needs mental and physical exercise. Toy and Miniature Poodles are known to have a long life span. With a long life expectancy, their diet should support them throughout life and into maturity with a selection of nutrients to maintain health and vitality.

Temperament

Poodles are known for their intelligence which makes them easy to train. They are an agile, athletic and friendly breed. Due to their high level intelligence, training or activities that stimulate the mind along with the body are ideal. Toy and Miniature Poodles can have a tendency to bark; mental stimulation and early training will assist.   

Weight

The Poodle comes in three sizes: Toy, Miniature and Standard. The Toy Poodle is the smallest of all three breeds. While the Toy and Miniature Poodle may be known as ‘lap dogs’ due to their size, they are an energetic breed that will benefit from daily exercise to help maintain a healthy weight and muscle mass.

Muscles & Joints

Despite being a smaller size compare to the Standard Poodle, the Miniature and Toy Poodle have a lean and muscular body. Their body type is a reflection of their ancestry, originating from a French waterdog breed, The Barbet.  

Skin & Coat

Poodles’  hair continually grows and they are a low-shedding breed, making them an ideal breed for anyone with allergies. Although they are not prone to shedding, the grooming requirements of a Poodle are high. Generally professional grooming will be required every 2 months to keep your Poodle’s coat in premium condition. A diet enriched with borage oil, EPA & DHA and biotin to enhance the softness and shine while strengthening the natural skin barrier is ideal.
