    About 2 months ago I got my first puppy. He's a standard poodle, and this is the first pet I've ever had. I'm very new to puppy training, one day I listened to a book By Zak George on training dogs. This book was very informative and helped me a lot and continues to help me a lot! It goes over...

    Hello, last week my pup turned 5 months, I though we were doing well he listened to commands, went in his crate spontaneously, he understood he shouldn’t bark for long. Anyways as soon as he turned 5 BOOM ! Doesn’t listen to anything, I have to repeat commands multiple times before he does it...

    i just got a toy poodle just 5 days back and we are trying to poty/pee train her. We have place pads in corners of each room so that she can go there when we are on office calls. Our challenge is she is getting confused with the placement of it in every room. How do we better coach her?

    Hello All, I’m looking for some advice or general thoughts about problems we are having with our new mini poodle puppy, Finn. We got him when he was 8 weeks old and he’s now about 19 weeks. Finn is an absolutely gorgeous dog, extremely handsome but unfortunately we cannot seem to figure him...

    Hello all! I have a 10 month old moyen poodle named George. We absolutely love him and he is the best most kind hearted dog. However, the main issue as of late has been him stealing items (literally anything, like socks, underwear, phone chargers, parts of a vacuum etc) and then guarding it. We...

    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...

    Hi all, I just wanted a quick bit of advice but first I’ll give the back story. On Sunday night we were walking our 6 month standard poodle when a VERY loud firework went off very close by. It petrified her and she was very spooked and anxious all night. She kept staring at our ceiling lights...

    Hey all, I have a 5 month old standard poodle puppy, she is beautiful and has been really good for many weeks now. We’ve made good progress with her training and are attending weekly sessions but we are struggling with her biting. We tend to find she will be absolutely fine and then she gets a...

    Hi all, I did a similar post to this a few weeks back but some time has passed now and I’m hoping for some more advice. We’ve had our Standard Poodle Puppy for nearly two weeks and she is barking and crying very loudly every time she is alone. I’ve tried to make the crate a lovely place for her...

    Hi everyone, My partner and I have just got a new standard poodle puppy, she is beautiful! This is our third full day with her so this post may be a bit premature but I was hoping for some advice in regards to teaching her to be left alone as she is crying whenever we leave the room. She has...

    Sorry for the length of this post. I've noticed that there's quite a few owner-trained SDs here (not gonna lie, the community here has really helped sell me on poodles), so I hope you can give me some pointers! (Don't worry, I'll get a pro to help me out on the actual training part of this.)...

    Hello everyone. I and my partner recently got a puppy (a toy poodle). The puppy is very young, the breeder said he was 45 days but after a Vet check-up (where he turned out to be fine and healthy) said he may be a bit younger more like 5 weeks. I know the breeder should have kept the baby boy...

    We have a 9 1/2 week old standard poodle. She has been puppy biting a lot as puppies do but no method we have tried has helped stop her. We have tried acting like we’re hurt and yelping when she bites but she barks back. We tried redirecting her to one of her many toys. We also tried just...

    Hi! My almost 7 month old puppy is very vigilant and bold, which I love. Over the past few months he has started barking when he hears people walk by the apartment, sees new cars outside, or strangers he doesn't like the look of (and the occasional inanimate object- like a flag). He only barks...

    Hi everyone! I have wanted a standard poodle for the past 8 years! I would see one anywhere and stop what I am doing and run, even across the street, to meet the dog. I absolutley love them. After 4 years of trying and begging, and realizing that I wanted to 'rescue' vs. 'buy' a standard poodle...
