Hi - From Me and our new standard poodle puppy
We have just been adopted by a 15 week old, male, black, standard poodle. His name is Cash, henc my user name.
Cash is actually my daughters puppy although we all pitch in with him. I am excited to be able to chat with others who have trained and groomed poodles.
I have worked with professional groomers in the past and also teach beginner obedience classes.
I don't think that Cash had the socialization or amount of handling he should have before we got him and so I have been working with him, to get him to actively play with toys with us. He loves his rope toy and another stuffed animal toy, but doesn't give the tennis ball much.
Cash joins our older adult neuterd golden retriever and our adult, neutered great pyreneseXanatolian shepard. Also in our family are 3 children, myself, my husband, eight horses and two cats.
