To the surprise of some, the poodle is actually a working water dog. The name comes from the German term “pudel”, which refers to his love of splashing and playing in the water. In France, the breed is known as “Caniche”, a combination of the words “Chien” for dog and “canard” for duck. A Poodle’s clip allowed him greater freedom of movement in the water, yet kept vulnerable regions warm and protected. A long tradition of artists have enjoyed creating ever more flamboyant clip designs. Today, Poodles are still a favorite of grooming competitions because their ever moldable coats support incredible coiffures, often with bright colours. There are four sizes of Poodles: Standard, Medium, Miniature and Toy. The Miniature Poodle is very popular, large enough to remain sturdy while fitting into most homes, yet small enough to be picked up and be a lap dog.
One of the most intelligent breeds, the Miniature Poodle is a lively fellow who enjoys having something to do. He can be a bit shy and sensitive and requires good socialization to bring out his confidence and cheerful nature. Excellent trick dogs, Miniature Poodles are great fun to train, and this helps to keep their minds occupied.
