Default Are mini poos & noisy boys-any good?

Hi everyone, we are looking to get a mpoo this spring any time around April, ive been doing lots of research on websites and obviously on here, ive read Ian Dunbars books and totally inspired about taining. My only worry is that some websites ive read say that poodle/mpoos are very sensitive around sudden noises or any tension in the house, now we have 2 wonderful sons 11yrs and 6yrs who can sometimes get a little noisy, they can be load when playing police cars etc & they have moments where they fall out and there will be an outburst, I wouldnt want to have a puppy traumatized by this. Is this something that would be a problem or can you de-sensitize and they would get used to the everyday noises of the house and the sometimes noisy boys! I love reading all the advice from all you poodle people!

I've posted on your other thread - if I were you would seriously consider an adult, rather than a pup, given your son's anxieties around dogs. As to whether a pup would be worried by noise, it would very much depend upon temperament and upbringing - most pups I've known would want to join in the excitement! As long as the puppy or dog is not already of a nervous disposition, and has a quiet safe place to retire to when it all gets too much, I wouldn't expect any problems. We had miniature poodles when I was growing up and, while we were all girls, we could probably have given your boys a run for their money when it came to making a racket!

Thanks for both your replies. Because my older son is nervous of dogs I thought that a puppy would be better as he couldnt possibly be so frightened of a cute little ball of fluff, and I feel his confidence would improve and grow as the puppy grew! Its good to know that they will adapt to their surroundings. One of my concerns is finding a good breeder that health tests and home rears the puppies so they are used to all the normal noises etc and that they are socialised at an early age. There is so much talk about early socialisation and making sure the breeder brings them up in the home and not in a shed. I know how it is important to pick the right puppy to suit the house hold, ie confident so it not scared of the boys but not over confident or boisterous so that our son is not frightened by it, the happy medium, well adjusted pup would great, (if thats possible)
The girls ive come across at birthday parties with their singing and dancing, im sure you could have competed with our 2!!!!! He He!

I am the oldest of a large family, there are 12 of us total in one house. Talk about noisy! It's always loud, unless its nap time or bedtime. Both of the poodles came to me as puppies and adjusted to everything just fine, it hasn't seemed to affect them. Although they both tend to be a bit more "talkative". Not necessarily barking, but just more noisy in general. I guess they are just copying their family!

I'm not sure if having a puppy around your son who is leery of dogs is a good idea though...puppies tend to do a lot of jumping up and nipping/mouthing, both things I have found to be frightening to children who are not used to dogs. One time I took Raven (4 mo at the time) to a church social thing, and he was playing with a little girl. I warned her that he might nibble on her fingers, but that he was just playing and that I wouldn't let him if I could help it. They played just fine for a while, then started chasing each other. It was Raven's turn to chase, and all of a sudden the little girl started screaming and crying...apparently she thought he was trying to chase her down to nip her! All that to say, I would be careful...even children used to dogs can be overwhelmed by puppies. They act differently than adults.

Good luck with your new addition!

Thanks for you advice, my thought was the smaller the dog/puppy the less threatening it would be, my son is 11 and quite tall so hes not a little chap, ive pre warned him about the nipping/mouthing and jumping etc that goes with a puppy (hes had a bit of that from his brother, when he was younger) Its finding a well behaved calm dog, if you can, bearing in mind if you get a rescue you are not 100% sure of the reason for rehoming, its a difficult one! It sounds like you have one busy NOISY house!

Maybe have him meet some puppies and see if he is ok with their behavior? I agree, sometimes finding the right dog of a particular breed in a rescue is hard! I haven't even attempted it, and that was one of the reasons.

Yes, our house is noisy! Even when everyone is happy, we do a lot of yelling to be heard over the din lol. Heaven forbid an argument break out!! Another reason we have never successfully been able to get an adult dog, (and we have tried) very few dogs are raised around our kind of environment and have a difficult time adjusting. Puppies have a much easier time!
