10 Reasons Poodles Are The Best Dogs Ever

Poodles are the epitome of brains, beauty, and versatility, making them an ideal dog breed for an array of lifestyles.

If you’re already a Poodle owner then you understand why they’re the best but if you’re not, you’re about to find out!

1. Poodles are aquatic enthusiasts

The classic Poodle haircut, with bald legs and hair puffs on the ankles, head, and body, may appear funny to some, but it serves a purpose. The puffs keep the dog’s joints warm while swimming in cold water, while the shaved areas prevent them from becoming waterlogged and allow them to move easily through the water.

Poodles are perfect for trips to the beach, lake, or creek and love to play fetch in the water.

2. Personalised grooming styles

Since most Poodles do not spend the majority of their time in the water, they can be groomed in various styles. The Continental Clip, with its classic pom-pom look, is one option. The Bikini Clip, with medium length hair and a pom on the tail, is another. Some owners prefer the relaxed appearance of the Puppy Clip. The Corded style, featuring dreadlocks, is a rare but eye-catching option (We prefer the “Teddy Bear Cut” for our Poodles)

3. Three Different sizes to choose from

The Standard Poodle is the largest, weighing 20-30kgs and standing at least 15 inches tall at the shoulder.

The Miniature Poodle (Our favourite) is medium-sized, weighing 5-9kg and standing 11 inches tall at the shoulder.

The Toy Poodle is the smallest and most portable, weighing just 3-4kg and standing 9 inches tall at the shoulder.

4. Non-shedding Coat

Poodles are a rare breed that actually do not shed! They have hair instead of fur, and their hair lacks an undercoat, which is the main reason dogs shed. Poodles’ hair has a longer growth period, preventing it from falling out as frequently as other dogs’ fur. Additionally, their water-resistant coat is less likely to cause allergic reactions.

5. Exceptionally intelligent

Poodles are one of the smartest dog breeds, second only to the Border Collie. They learn quickly and can understand hundreds of words in their lifetime. They can learn through training and observation and have an instinctual understanding of their owner’s wishes.

6. Trick dogs extraordinaire

Not only are Poodles clever, but they also love to please. They are motivated by food, toys, and praise, making them easy to train and teach new skills. They can learn complex behavior chains and perform elaborate dance routines (hence why they are used in the circus) The Standard Poodle’s large size also makes them helpful around the house.

7. Exceptional at everything

Poodles excel in nearly every dog sport, from nosework to truffle hunting to agility. The Standard variety also makes an excellent service dog for people with disabilities and is a superb therapy or emotional support dog, frequently winning awards in Conformation Shows.

8. Picture-perfect

After getting a Poodle, you’ll find yourself searching for a high-quality camera to capture their beauty. Their stunning brown eyes and long legs make them appear elegant, even after a messy romp. Poodles love the camera and are always ready for a photo op.

9. Cuddle buddies

Poodles are active during the day, requiring plenty of walks and physical and mental stimulation. But at night, they love to snuggle up with their owner. Their warm, curly coat is perfect for chilly winter evenings.

10.  Owning a Poodle is a way of life

You’ll soon understand why they’re adored globally. Your house will be filled with charming Poodle merchandise in no time – from coffee mugs, paintings, mousepads, and more, all displaying your preferred canine breed and you’ll find yourself wanting another poodle in no time, just as we did!
