Hi - From Me and our new standard poodle puppy

Hi,

We have just been adopted by a 15 week old, male, black, standard poodle. His name is Cash, henc my user name.

Cash is actually my daughters puppy although we all pitch in with him. I am excited to be able to chat with others who have trained and groomed poodles.

I have worked with professional groomers in the past and also teach beginner obedience classes.

I don't think that Cash had the socialization or amount of handling he should have before we got him and so I have been working with him, to get him to actively play with toys with us. He loves his rope toy and another stuffed animal toy, but doesn't give the tennis ball much.

Cash joins our older adult neuterd golden retriever and our adult, neutered great pyreneseXanatolian shepard. Also in our family are 3 children, myself, my husband, eight horses and two cats.

Ok,

Here is a not so great picture of our puppy. I gave him his first ever, and my first ever face clip. I need a little work on my technique, but I think we'll get the hang of it!

He is such a fun dog! He is so laid back and a joy to have around! (Now if we could just get the house training going a little better)

He is a cutie and I think you did a fine job on his face. :)

As far as potty training, is he having accidents in the house? If so, do you have a crate or a play pen or just a gate to keep him fenced off in one spot? It's always a good idea if you can't watch him.

He is handsome! Welcome.

I'm impressed with your grooming. I know there will come a time when we will need to learn to do this (to save $$ it would be great - just three weeks out and already our dog is scruffy looking!), but I'm too chicken!
