theres nothing wrong with getting a poodle or any og at a young age if they are looked after properley

i have been a groomer since i was 16 and i have always had dogs at home but i got my very own dog this year witch was todd at the age of 23

i have done the partying thing and i thought it was the best time for me to have a dog of my very own

i pay for all his bills ect and do al his training and grooming and everything else he needs just becaue your young doesnt make you unable to look after a dog properley

do have to say tho to the op there was no need for the comment to harley everyone is alloud there opioin and she was trying to be hepful to you

good luck with you little pup ...

I'm another young dog owner, but I fully understand what Cbrand meant and it's good advice. Most people in their early 20's aren't prepared for responsible dog ownership. Dogs are a commitment for 10yrs or more, you need to think about finding a place to live w/ dogs, traveling w/ dogs, providing them w/ care, etc. I don't think Cbrand meant that no one our age should own a dog, but that we seriously need to think about the impact a dog will have on our lives and what kind of life our dogs will have.

I'm only 23 with my own poodle, but I've been married 3 years, have an 11 month old daughter, and my own home, of where I spend most of my days

Exercise and Socialise. That'll make toilet training/grooming/obedience training SO much easier, IMHO.

Thanks for the input Mark! Unfortunately Calsun hasn't logged onto the forum since January 22, 2010 at 11:55 AM. The likelihood of her reading your sensible post is very slim. Still not bad advice for anyone else looking to add a poodle to their life! And just so everyone else is aware.... This is an OLD thread!

As a groomer, I don't want to believe a bunch of myths regarding poodles.

You can do what ever the heck you want with their topknot. There is no rules. I groom them and I don't care if you call it MYTH #1 fur or hair....its fuzzy and get matted, so that's all I know.....if you don't want big expensive grooming bills, learn to use a comb and get down to the skin. Everything else is easy.

MYTH #2....you shouldn't bathe them too oftem. My little guy gets bathed every 3 days...the standards about every 2 weeks. Their HAIR doesn't fall out NOR do they have dandruff. Use good dog shampoo

MYTH #3 Use Johnsons Baby Shampoo-No More Tears! Sorry,,,don't ever use it

MYTH 3# All Commercial dog food is good. It says it meets all the nutrional needs of all dogs. THIS is the biggest lie in the world. DO NOT BUY ANY thing at Wal-Mart, or your local supermarket....We all know the problems that come from Commercial Kibble diets....canned is no better. STAY AWAY!

MYTH #4 Just because you dog can "hold it" all day, doesn't mean he should. If you work alot, find a senior citizen to let your dog out in the middle of the day.

REALITY: there is a lot of poodle prejudice in this world. It might hurt your chances of finding love if the men you date are poodle haters. If they are poodle haters in the beginning, you can try to rehabilitate him by letting him get to know your poodle....but if he is a confirmed poodle hater, we all would rather you stay single for the time....a real man will love your poodle....don't fall for the macho guy that says he loves LABS and MASTIFFS. We know that labs and mastiffs only mess the poodle's hair up with their slobber.

REALITY: You will constantly see things thru poodle eyes from now on. "Will my poodle like this sofa?" Will he be able to see out the window? Is it the right height for him to see from and will he get hurt jumping off of it?
Will my poodle like this car? Will it match his fur? Does this house have air conditioning for the poodle? I wouldn't want the poodle to be too hot. You will blow on a piece of cooked chicken so your poodle won't burn his tongue on it. Something happens to us...you'll see. It will happen to you too...hopefully!
