I am ready to get a new poodle puppy after my toy poodle passed away 6 months ago. My husband and I were discussing a toy vs a mini. We know the physical differences between the two but what about the temperament? I read the mini has the most energy of all 3 types. What about prey drive? I would not want it chasing our cat. ( Of coarse I would stop it but still ) what about digging holes in the yard? ( Again would stop that ) I read barking half depends on genetics and half depends on training. If the parents are not barkers would the puppies be the same? Do mini’s bark more then the other 2 types? Are mini’s or toys more socially attracted to you? Who would most likely want to be a tv buddy? I know all dogs like to walk. Who is more up for a walk? What about housebreaking? Is it true mini’s house break faster then toys? I have only had a toy poodle. He was a very well behaved dog. I have no experience with mini’s. Thank You for your replies.
