My parti-poodle is a toy and is 11 months old and weighs 9.5 pounds. I thought toy poodles would only weigh up to 7.5 pounds. Is he just big for a toy poodle? I still feed him twice a day - is this too much? Any info would be appreciated since this is my first poodle.
Thank you for your response. I usually feed him twice a day and it's about 1/2 cup each time. I guess I thought he would be smaller! When we picked him out of the litter the breeder thought he would be the smallest but when we went to pick him up she changed her mind and told me he would be one of the largest. Thanks again!
The breed standard for poodles only ever mentions height, not weight. Technically, it's only height that's supposed to determine whether they're toy, mini or standard. That being said, as long as your little guy doesn't feel like he's overweight, I wouldn't worry. Can you feel his ribs?
