I've discovered that my Standard Poodle is a lap dog!?!

I've been teaching to "hug" by putting his chest in my lap and lean up against my torso. It's working towards being able to apply deep pressure for my son to help with his anxiety.

Well today he decided that wasn't good enough and worked his back legs up on top of me as well. So I had a nearly 60 lbs dog laying on my lap and legs for at least an hour. He seemed so happy and calm. Silly boy. Sure do love the big galoot!

My husband has made my last two standards, lap dogs, I think it's a man thing, as well as a poodle thing.

Roland likes to cuddle up to me when I'm laying on the couch, stretching along side me and laying his head on my chest, but I don't allow him on my lap. mainly because he's too big for my chubby, little old lady lap. But my husband sits in his lounge chair and loves wearing a poodle blanket and Roland loves being that blanket.

I keep saying I'm going to get a mini or toy poodle so I can have a proper lap dog, both my boys are too big for the job, but I somehow think that Roland wouldn't be happy if he wasn't the baby of the family.

Well...not completely worthless. You verbally painted a pretty decent picture. What a funny dog. No wonder you love him so. But really...pictures of this would be a bonus. :act-up:

Eh, my Toy isn't a lap dog...

I haven't had a Spoo, so can't relate there, but recall many years ago as a shelter volunteer, Dobermans were the lap dogs above all :). So a Spoo doesn't seem unreasonable.

Heaven help me all 3 of my toys are lap dogs. My Aunt comes for a couple of months each year. When she leaves for a week they go crazy looking for her, as she hold them 24/7

Yes, I can attest to that. Dobermans are sooooooo into their owners. Of course, strong lap-dog characteristics begin at a very early age with Dobermans.:act-up:

I trained Sage as a puppy to put his paws up on my shoulders then I say “1,2,3!” And he jumps his back legs up so I can pick him up and hold him like a baby. He’s only 45 lbs though;) I thought it would be good if I ever had to carry him out of a hike or something he would be used to being held, but it sure is a great party trick.
The kids love it and sometimes when we’re volunteering Ill do it so a resident in a high up bed can reach over and pet him. He seems to like it:)
Ha ha! Looks ridiculous, for sure. I found a picture...

Merry is turning into a lap dog as well. Although it's usually only her upper body across my lap or leaning into me while sitting next to me I love it

These dogs are silly. My Standard is nearly 80 pounds and loves big hugs, will climb in my lap if I am foolish enough to give him an opening. Really enjoying my dog too.
