Default Hello from Maine

New to poodle ownership and loving every minute of it. Adopted a 6 month old male standard. Plan on teaching him how to skijor and treat him like the sporting dog he really is. I live up in Maine so looking forward to meeting other standard owners in the area.

Welcome to PF! Wow, cross country skiing huh? Too cold for this Southern Californian! Are there things you will do to get him ready to train? I've heard that you have to wait until their bones are done growing before they learn to pull? Sounds like it could be a lot of fun! Good Luck in training!

Welcome to the forum. Look forward to seeing photos and hearing more about training for skijor.

Welcome to the group! You will find a mass of helpful information here. I have just introduced "scenting " to Rhett, with a pheasant wing. He went "crazy" Andy arm is sore from casting the wing tied to the cane pole.

Welcome. Standards are just the coolest dogs in terms of all the amazing different things they can do. It is too bad that most people just think they are no deeper than their pretty faces. We will be really interested to hear how your training goes as your boy grows into it.

well here's a picture finally. First poodle adoption ended up as more of a short term foster unfortunately, but have a permanent adoption as of last weekend. The PO had a change of life situation and long story short we ended up with that beautiful boy up top. He's about a year and a half and a healthy 65lbs. Getting used to this whole poodle thing, and will have lots of questions specifically on the grooming. Tried using my human clippers to fix his top knot last night and his tail. My girlfriend decided she didn't like the long hair, so his head is now about 3/4" but it took forever so we will be investing in new clippers soon. He will eventually be used for upland hunting so his coat will be short. Not sure of proper terminology for what his cut is in the above picture but seems to be a shorter lamb clip. Either way we're quite happy with him. Only issue is he is not crate trained, but we'll be working on that. He seems to be fine at home while we're at work out of the crate except for a couple of #2 accidents mid day, but having him crate trained is still going to be high priority.

Wow! He's a big spoo! But very handsome! Glad you got him! Grooming will be a large part of ownership even if you keep him in a short coat, there's still face, feet, and tail to do! Our grooming thread has a sticky on it to help you! You now have ownership of a unique personality that will amuse, confuse, and control you! GOOD LUCK! LOL!
