I am new to owning a poodle. I bought a miniature chocolate poodle on Nov. 17 and I named Chip. I know, chocolate chip. He's 6 months old and tends to have psycho puppy moments. He came from a backyard breeder and will have, and already has, a much better life with me. I need some help with the psycho puppy moments. Other than those, he is a cute, lovable, funny puppy and I'm glad we have each other.
