Dog Breeds – Standard Poodle

While the origin of the Standard Poodle is still a bit of a mystery for some dog-breeding experts, many of them believe the Standard Poodle, in fact, originated in Germany around the 17th century about 400 years ago.

At that time, Standard Poodles were used for hunting purposes. The French recognized the intelligence of the Standard Poodle, along with the breed's skill for retrieving waterfowl, such as, ducks and geese.

As a result, the French helped to highly develop the Standard Poodles skill for retrieving in water. One fascinating fact that may surprise many people is that the Standard Poodle is indeed the world's oldest known breed of water retrieving dogs.

Standard Poodle's are medium-sized with a stunning appearance. The Poodle's stature is very distinguished; yet, they have a very gentle and pleasing look about them.

Their eyes are usually a rich, dark brown, and they have long, hanging ears. The Poodle has a luxurious coat of one solid color that is darker in certain areas, like the ears, and tail, for example. The Poodle's solid colors range from white, apricot, black, gray and silver. Their coats are hypoallergenic because the Poodle's coat is actually hair, rather than fur.

The Standard Poodle averages 15 to 24 inches in height, and generally weighs around 45 to 70 pounds.

The Standard Poodle has been said to be fairly calmer than other types of Poodles.

They are highly gracious, sociable animals that possess a very kind and gentle temperament about them.

These dogs are some of the most highly intelligent of all breeds, and continue to retain their position as being one of the most popular breeds for many years now.

They are fun loving, playful, and obedient. Additionally, with the Standard Poodle's high amount of intelligence, they can be trained to perform numerous tricks, which can be something to think about when choosing a particular dog for children to play with.

Because these dogs are such an active breed they tend to fare better in more out-lying areas, like a rural setting, or in a suburban area with more of an energetic family type.

In choosing this kind of breed, it is important to keep in mind that Poodle's need to be exercised on a regular basis; for instance, given long walks, playing in the yard, or taken to the park for extended periods of time.

In essence, without regular exercise, this can throw the Standard Poodle's otherwise usual and gentle temperament off, and in turn, the dog can become nervous, and excitable.

These Poodle's, by nature, do make great watchdogs because they are so loyal to their family members.

They have been known to be highly protective of smaller animals in the household, as well.

If you are choosing a Standard Poodle, then you have made a terrific choice, as they do make wonderful family pets and will remain a most cherished and loving companion for many years to come.
