TThe Toy Poodle is remarkably intelligent. Highly responsive, they are said to be one of the most trainable breeds. Sweet, cheerful, perky and lively, they like to be with people. Delightful, very amusing and keen. Socialize them well. They make a very good watchdog for their size. Without the proper type and amount of exercise they may be high-strung and timid.

The Poodle is a popular family pet with an impressive top ten ranking in the AKC popularity lists. The Poodle is one of the most intelligent and trainable of all breeds. This is a proud looking and intelligent dog, that is very quick to learn and is easy to train. The Poodle is a dog that will suit both inexperienced and experienced dog owners. He is a good natured, sociable dog, and although lively and energetic is also calm when indoors. The Poodle enjoys interaction and companionship from his owners, and is not suited to those with little time to dedicate to their pets. They are eager to please their owners, and make excellent family pets. The Poodle does have a fair amount of energy and does need regular exercise, so this is not the right choice for a couch potato - mental and physical stimulation are important to this intelligent breed.

The Miniature and Toy varieties of Poodle were bred down from the larger Standard Poodles and all three exhibit the same general characteristics. In temperament, the Poodle is calm and steady and should never appear shy or sharp. He carries himself proudly with an air of distinction and nobility. The Toy variety is a dainty and sensitive little dog who makes the perfect companion for a less active person. He is loyal, sociable, good natured and easy to train. The Toy gets along well with children although for those with very young children, the Miniature or Standard may be a better choice.

The Poodle has a mixed history in terms of his origins, as he originated from Germany but was developed in France. He was once used to retrieve ducks from the water, which is reflected in his love for water. He was then used as a show dog in France, and went on to become a favorite with the wealth and the national dog of France. He was registered with the AKC in 1887.
The life expectancy of the Poodle is around 10-13 years for Standard Poodles, 13-16 years for Miniature Poodles and up to 16 years for Toy Poodles. There are a number of health problems to look out for with this breed, and this includes Addison's Disease, HD, PRA, bloat, SA, epilepsy, entropion, cataracts, renal disease, and allergies. The parents of the Poodle puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates, and you should also ask about clearance relating to vWD and SA (sebaceous adenitis).
