Ok, newbie to spoo's here. I've been researching for a long time looking for the kind of dog we would like to adopt and have become in love with the standard poodle breed.

I keep reading on different sites conflicting info on how much upkeep a poodle's coat requires. I'm guessing this is because the amount of different styles? If you want the hair to pe poof like a cotton ball or to stay looking curly?

This is how I would like to keep my spoo hair (if I am lucky enough to get one!!)

Can you guys help me out and let me know what sort of maintenance this would require? Daily brushing? weekly washing? monthly cutting??? Do you have to brush them daily if you don't want their hair to do the poof? Or is it just a different type of brush you use??

Thanks so much! I really want to learn all this prior to making the decision of what type of breed we want to go with! After all we'll be together for years to come :)

Thanks! I really like the look of just the same length all over... I know kinda boring, but I guess it fits my simple and slightly boring style too!

I am really interested in finding a good breeder on here hopefully too.

I really love the look of the lighter reds, or apricots. I loveeeee the browns, but as you said I might be a little hesitant unless I could hear of some good breeders by others that have seen their brown poodles grown up. I would also love to hear about temperament and coat color... is this a real thing? Does the coat color really make a difference in personality?

AWWWWW!!!! She's adorable! Even after the fading! I know you said she needs a haircut in the first pictures, but I love that cuddly look. I'm sure though it get's harder to brush out the longer it gets.

Thanks for the pics! You're making me want a brown now. And this is why I'm still waiting, I just can't make up my mind.

Is her tail docked? I've been seeing longer docks and to me it is hard to sometime tell if it is done or not...

Still unsure if it's something I would want done or not either. Will have to read more on that.
