Hi, everyone. My name is Sarah, and I am the proud owner of a wonderful five-year-old black Standard Poodle named Faith. She is very much a clown and has lots of energy! We train and compete in agility, flyball, and rally. I am interested in dog training, and I'm a big proponent of clicker-training and positive reinforcement. I'm looking forward to hearing about your poodles and hoping to pick up some grooming tips here, as my poor girl has had many bad hair months due to my unskilled home grooms. :)

Welcome Omnipoodle! I'm so curious, was Faith named after the main character's spoo in the Laurien Berensen books? If not, you really should read them, and if so, good thinking! I've often thought of naming a standard Faith.

Thank you all for the welcoming messages! I'll try to post some pictures soon. That is Faith playing flyball in my avatar. Flufflvr, yes, my Faith is named after Melanie Travis' poodle! I love those books. That series got me interested in poodles in the first place, long before I was ready to get my own dog.

Just a quick aside. Has anyone read the John Steinbeck book Travels With Charlie? Awesome read about his real adventures travelling with his Standard Poodle Charlie across the USA.

For those of you who haven't checked out the Laurien Berenson series, you definitely should do so! They are fun, light mysteries about characters who are dog (and mostly poodle) people. Most of what I know about conformation shows is from those books. My library has a lot of them.

Faith is my only dog, partial2poodles--in fact, she is my very first dog who is all my own. I grew up with family dogs, but it's not the same. I am planning to get another dog in a couple years, though.

Thanks again for the messages, everyone. This seems like a great forum!
