Haha, talk about anxiousness. Mack is good when left at home alone. He's usually alone for around 10 hours, and most of what he does is sleep.

If we're at home, and around the living room, we usually have to be in sight of him. He will make sure we're ok, follow us around the house and lying down to look at us when we're doing something in the room.

He always snuggles up when i sit on the floor for him to curl into my lap. Or even on the couch, Once i sit down, he will take a flying leap to jump onto my lap.

He's used to snuggles and hugs now. Used to struggle a bit as a puppy. And nip alot as he grew up. Now he knows better

This is a great question! I call my dog a "cupcake dog" because she is a sweet treat and far and away the most responsive and affectionate dog I have ever owned (and that is saying something).
When I was a child I had a stuffed poodle toy that I had on my bed and I loved. Now I have a live one!

I have to say that Remington is very loving. He is a total cuddle bug. He follows me through the house. And like others have said, they do follow you to potty. Remington believes that this is the best time to give hugs. He also believe that he needs to check on me when I am in the shower.

Unlike many others on this group, I didn't start off wanting a poodle. In fact I was positive I could find him a better home. But, after a few days, I was so in love with him. He is the best dog I have ever owned... I love him beyond belief.

I suppose that not all poodles are very affecionate, but our spoo is. Bambi slees in our bed, and oftens falls asleep with his head on my shoulder when were watching a movie that he thinks is booring. He is very keen on sleeping on top of you, and his sieze can make it hard to breath, waking you up in the middle of the night. And when he jumps into the bed and lands on someone its painfull. A smaller poodle would probably be better in that aspect.

I have a very cuddly toy but from the pictures I have seen on the forum and reading the comments have no fear - you should have no difficulty finding a dog as cuddly and affectionate as your gorgeous boy Romeo. I think it is key to meet the parents or other dogs from the line so you can access their personality for yourself. Even though Swizzle is very attached I nipped separation anxiety in the bud by giving him fantastic stuffed toys or once he had the hang of them a raw bone when I leave. I also socialized him to other people so when we travel and can't be with us he is happy with a relative. I think you will be very happy with your choice of a poodle.

Phoenix just loves to kiss you, she could pretty much make herself fall asleep if you let continue to kiss you for so long it pretty much seems

Unfortunately, Sawyer doesn't seem to be too cuddly :( He still has moments, but it's not like my american eskimo. He IS getting better though, before he wouldn't even put up with it, now I notice him walking by and stopping at me, expecting me to pet him or give him some love. So there's hope for him
But I think it depends on the specific dog. I'd suggest spending time with the litter and finding the one that pulls your heartstrings
Even though mine isn't as cuddly, I've learned to love him for his independence too! And it makes our cuddle times extra special :act-up
Also, I got him at 5 months, and looking back, there were signs he wasn't cuddly when I first saw him. But I already drove 4 hours to get him and there's no way I was coming home without a dog haha
Just spend time petting the dogs, Sawyer would just walk off and not seem to really enjoy it, but you should be able to tell pretty easily.
The good news is he still cuddles at night, always has, sleeps on my bed and loves me petting him til he goes to sleep

Our Rusty is especially loving with everyone. He loves to hop up onto our laps and take a nap or just get some pets. Wants to always to be with everyone. I have always had golden retrievers and Rusty is every bit as people loving as my goldens were.

Oh my gosh my female minipoo is a love bug! She is a velcro dog too. (and over the past 30 years, so has every one of my other poodles) Wherever I go, Callie is right there with me. She snuggles every chance she gets and puts her "arms" around us and lies there looking into our eyes. She's a grunter (grunts mean she is happy) and every time we cuddle her she grunts with pleasure. Poodles are great for older couples because as they mature, they will adjust to your life style. That is not to say they are not playful and energetic when you want them to be. They have a great sense of humor too. The only thing I can add is that they are usually one family dogs and many minis are not eager to be petted by just anyone. Not to say they will bite, but rather they will be reserved until they know a stranger better and can trust them. We don't mind that Callie is reserved because she is beautiful and if she went eagerly to a stranger, she might be dognapped.
The best advice is to get a poodle from a reputable breeder, preferably one who has a show bloodline which helps to be sure the dog will be healthy and emotionally stable.
