I couldnt be any happier with Dutch, and Poodles in general!! He is just 9wks and is pretty much potty trained, sits and comes when called. He is sooooo smart!! HE wasnt sure about the collar(would yelp LOUD when pulled) but now is doing pretty good on the leash. We are taking it slow because I dont want to scar him and think the leash and collar are bad. The only time he cries is when he cant get to where we are. My only complaint is that he likes to get under my feet and sometimes I dont realize he is there and will step on him!! :( He can be a bit of a baby and when he gets stepped on he will crie for a good minute or 2. He also pouts!! If he doesnt get his way he will literally sit in a corner and look at you with this pathetic look on his face!! It is too funny!! He fits in the kids and DH!! Any one else who want to brag about their poo go ahead........I would love to hear!!

They are so smart it's scary... and they know SO MUCH more than they let on I`ve learned.

We've seen ours do stuff when he thinks he is alone and no one is watching that makes us go *GASP*.... how did he know how to do that. He's a lil explorer, and a darn smart one when alone!!

My brag is no so much about my dogs, I know they are smart. My brag is about a couple dogs I bred. It hasnt taken them long and one of them that is doing dog obedience is now titled with her CDX (companion dog excellent), the other has only just started agility and has now earned a JD (jumping dog) and AD (agility dog) title.

First three are the obedience girl Sivaro Aiming to Win CDX, and the other four are the boy Sivaro Bite Th Bullet AD JD, this boy is also going to start obedience. Im so proud of these dogs.

Poodles are proven to be one of the most intelligent dog breeds.
My Maddie (RIP), learned to speak, touch, spin, sit, high 5, dance,
and jump through a hoop at 7-8 wks. of age, It just goes to show
if you have the time to interact with them (and have treats!) they
are very willing to learn. :D

My new poodle "Poobe," (her name is really Priscilla) will
tell you when she is hungry, or needs more water by barking.
When she needs to go outside she will spin in circles and bark.
Of course we are not responsible for training her to do this seeing
we got her not long ago, but we think it is very smart for someone
to teach her..or maybe she learned to do it on her own?

Rocks seems like he could be a very trainable boy my husband
says, maybe I need to give it a whirl and see how he does. :)

Eli had only got in trouble once and he didn't really do it. I thought he started peeing on the carpet and it really was my furnace leaking from down the hall. It the leak went behind the walls and then surfaced 6 feet away from the furnace. Who knew and the only thing I could think was him peeing there when I wasn't looking. Anyhow I got really upset after the 3 times me soaking this up and spanked him with a rolled up newspaper. He sat in the corner upset until we went and got him. Then my husband investigated this "wet spot" and realized what was going on. We had to love on him for hrs until he was finally ok. The rolled up newspaper went in the garbage and he has never been in trouble since. I believe Eli was 8 months old.

I learned that Poodles need soft corrections and definatly don't respond to newspaper training. My Pitbull's would not care about anything I did EXCEPT the newspaper. Poodle's are so different! Someone mentioned how smart Poodles are...well they are the #2 most intelligent dog breed with #1 being a Collie. That sounds right to me. You certainly can't do better then that!

*wishes* I had photos of our agility tibbies to post, darn momma has them all.

I to am impressed with how smart poos are.

Careful though Tann, when Dutch get to be a "teenager" he will likely start testing boundries. Why not enroll him and your family in a good training class. It will make your bond even stronger and prepare you for when he starts to test you later AND you can head off any potential problems that may be lurking down the road :)
