  1. Poodle Talk
    So, hello, all! This is my first post here and I actually don’t own a poodle. For my next dog, which won’t be for years anyways, I was contemplating a Spoo. I’ve been reading a ton about them and I think both their temperament and activity level fits into my lifestyle. I’m also aware they are...
  2. Poodle Talk
    I couldn't decide whether to make my thread a diary under "52 Weeks of..." or a training log under "General Training & Obedience"...so I decided to make it both, under the general term "Poodle Talk." Tessa the blue Standard Poodle puppy is coming home tomorrow! We are going to drive to...
  3. Poodle Talk
    Hey All, I’m new to this forum and have a couple of concerns when it comes to dog owning. Especially a standard poodle. I’ve done a lot of research on this breed and finally made the decision to get one after four months. My whole thing is feeling anxious about failing at taking care of this...

    What would be more suitable for an adult spoo: a 1 inch collar or a 1.5 inch? 1.5 inch seems like it would distribute pressure from a leash better, but would it be too wide? Pictures of spoos wearing their collars would be helpful too. Thank you all!

    Recently got my first male standard, he is 12 weeks at 22lbs. Approximately 15inches. His mom is 45 and dad is 55. Just curious if anyone has a rough weight estimate for when he’s an adult! Thanks!
  6. Finding the Right Puppy & Breeder
    Hi All, Was wondering if we could ask for advice regarding red toy and standard breeders in the UK and EU. We are based in the UK and are currently on the lookout for a red toy poodle but might consider a standard as well as other darker colours. Any steer in the right direction would be...
  7. Finding the Right Puppy & Breeder
    Hello! I'm a to-be owner looking for my first dog sometime in the next 3-4 years. I've been doing a ton of research and I've concluded that it would be better for me to get an adult dog rather than start off with a puppy. Standards have really caught my eye as their temperment, coat, energy...

    I will get my standard puppy in a few weeks, would it be rude to ask the breeder to not keep shaving its face? I like the poodles fluffy.
  9. Member Introductions
    Hi, I’m Dawn from Northeast PA. I have 2 Standard Poodles in my family. I’m a former groomer who always wanted a spoo and finally decided to add 1 to the family when I lost 1 of my Jack Russells over 2 years ago. I did my research for a breeder and then waited for a parti boy. While I was...

    Hello, New member here! We are planning on getting a standard poodle puppy in a year or so and I'd love to read more about raising a puppy as well as the breed itself. So, if you have any recommendations for books that you have found useful and informative, please share! I searched the forum...

    This is his first winter and we’ve learned that snow is Archer’s absolute favorite thing.

    I get told every day how big my 11 month old standard is. It’s gotten to the point of people arguing that he’s a mix because “poodles aren’t that big” (I usually just assume they’ve never seen a standard). He is 71 pounds, stands 28 inches at his shoulders and 34.5 inches at his head. Is this...

    Hi guys! What color do you think my poodle is? Our breeder thought she would be a tri, and the vet thought she is a parti. To me it seems like she has 4 colors, mostly black and white, with silver on her face and brown on her chin. I’ll add pictures from a few different angles.
  14. General Training and Obedience
    Our standard poodle is almost two years old and still has some concerning behaviors. The worst one is when she gets overtired or overstimulated, she attacks whoever's around by jumping on them and biting their arms/tearing their clothes. She doesn't break the skin or anything but it HURTS and...
  15. Poodle Health
    My 2 year old standard poodle has just started spinning in circles chasing his tail continously. He even bites chunks of hair off his tail and his bum. He cries and becomes aggressive when he gets in that phase. Although he is on anti inflammatory and pain killers to help, it hasn't changed...
  16. Poodle Grooming
    I am VERY new to poodles. I specifically like the standard poodle. They are the perfect dog for me when the time comes. I won’t be getting a poodle anytime soon, but I thought I would learn as much as possible in the mean time. So I’ll be asking all the dumb questions and probably use the wrong...
  17. Poodle Talk
    Hi everyone! I’m preparing to bring home a standard puppy once he’s 8 weeks. I want to get a small crate for him as a puppy instead of using a big one with a divider so it can fit in my room. What size crate should I buy for a standard puppy? When he gets bigger I’ll just buy a bigger one.
  18. Finding the Right Puppy & Breeder
    Does anyone know of any authentic, credible breeders in or around Illinois? I'm finally ready to bring a poodle home and I want to make the most out of this exciting experience! Ideally in the Chicagoland area but I am willing to drive 3-4 hours if needed. I'm looking for a Standard, doesn't...

    Okay... So we are looking for a dog that our boys (7 and 2) can grow up with. My wife's family has really bad allergies and so if we ever want to take our dog with us it really needs to be a dog that doesn't shed much. A Standard Poodle seems to make a lot of sense for us. I have been warned...

    Hi fellow poodle people! Long story short, I'll be in the market for a standard poodle puppy in a few years and was wondering about docking. Generally, I'm against all forms of cosmetic surgery in dogs for obvious reasons, but my search for a reputable non-docking breeder near me has been much...
