The incredibly elegant poodle is often referred to as the most intelligent and wisest of the canine race. However, along with this heightened level of intelligence, he also requires a great detail of attention and affection in order to keep him accustomed to his lifestyle. For example, poodles are renowned for being particular about where they go to the toilet and commonly desire to be as clean as possible. For this reason, the owner of a poodle may find that they are required to spend more time grooming him than they would if they owned a different breed of dog, for example, a working dog.
Although poodles require more attention, they have the positive attribute of generally being less trouble than other, more boisterous breeds, although they are incredibly playful themselves. Poodles have an elegance and dignity about them and can often possess a sense of calm which one does not usually find with some other breeds of dog. However, during the training process when your poodle is a puppy, it is advisable that he socializes with other dogs. This will not only help to make him a more sociable dog, but it can also help to eliminate any aggressive tendencies as he becomes and adult.
As with all breeds, poodles require a great amount of care, not just in regards to their appearance, but also their general health and nutrition. Poodles require high grade dog food that has meat as a primary ingredient. Poodle puppies, similar to other puppies, will generally want to be fed up to four times a day, but as he ages, you will find he eats just twice a day but will consume larger portions. As poodles are relatively lean dogs however, feeding him several smaller meals a day can help eliminate any issues relating to bloating. In all cases however, refrain from overfeeding your dog with dog food or foods. Your poodle will also require adequate exercise. In order for any dog to remain healthy, happy and obedient, he will require daily exercise, sometimes more than once a day. After exercise, always provide your poodle with plenty of water to keep him hydrated and ensure that he gets the rest he needs in between periods of exercise. Ensure to spoil him with dog treats when he learns new tricks and obedience’s and always follow a healthy diet with dental treats to encourage a healthy mouth and eliminate doggy breath.
One of the most recognizable aspects of a poodle’s appearance is his coat. Poodles possess a very dense coat which will require clipping every six to eight weeks in order to stop it over growing and affecting his hearing or visibility. Although poodles do not generally shed much hair, they still require frequent brushing to stop their coat from becoming tangled or matted. This can be completed by a professional dog groomer but due to the excessive amount of grooming a poodle can require, it is sometimes more beneficial to invest in appropriate brushes and combs to do this at home yourself.
Owning a poodle with provide you with a friendly, intelligent and playful companion. Due to the level of elegance a poodle exudes, they are the ideal choice of breed if you are maybe unsure or hesitant to own a more playful or boisterous dog. However, no matter what, you can guarantee that your poodle will be utterly loyal and loving should you do the same in return.
