The Brains Part of the Poodle...
The poodle is WAY more than just a foofoo hair cut. The poodle is the ORIGINAL water retriever, non-shedding, hypoallergenic, truffle hunting, herding, cart pulling, fly ball, agility, obedience, circus performing....dog. Yes, that pretty much sums it up! In short, they can DO IT ALL....and all with out hair on your floor, puffy eyes and sneezing. The poodle is highly trainable and very intelligent. But please remember that as puppies, a bored poodle puppy is a destructive puppy. But that pretty much can be said for any puppy of any breed.
Poodles love to please their owners and rarely need hard/forceful discipline. Their feelings can get hurt easily that they have displeased you. But don't let them fool you...they may be "playing" you. Poodles learn very quickly that sad eyes can get them out of pretty much anything, and tough love is sometimes needed. A great rule of thumb: "If it's cute as a puppy, will it be cute a an adult" as a poodle never forgets!
Our dogs have excelled in pretty much every dog sport. The key is finding what makes your puppy tick.
Below are some of the performance stars of our family. Please take a minute to admire everything these teams have acquired together. Remember that the key word is "together", these activities takes a team. The best trainer in the world and the best dog in the world won't work together unless they have an understanding of each other and a good working relationship together.
If you have one of our dogs and are excelling in a dog sport...please drop us a line and we'd be happy to add you to this brag page!
