ABOUT THE BOOK “A dog is a bond between strangers.” John Steinbeck When you own a poodle, you are guaranteed to attract attention. Thanks to its elegant posture and prancing gait, your dog will stand out in a crowd; thanks to the breed's gregarious nature, it will charm everyone it meets. The poodle is a companion dog par excellence: intelligent and witty, devoted to its pack members, and eager to please. It is the only breed that comes in three sizes: toy, miniature, and standard. There is a poodle for every activity level and lifestyle. Yet there is also no breed of dog more misunderstood than the poodle. Despite the fussy and sometimes preposterous styling of their coat, the dog underneath was a working breed originally used to retrieve waterfowl. The traditional clip, with its poufs and leonine mane, protected the internal organs and joints from the frigid water into which the dogs dove after fallen ducks and geese. True to its heritage, the poodle is a “real dog” that excels at any number of jobs. Poodles have been used to detect cancer, as therapy and rescue dogs, and even as police dogs. While the miniatures have a long history as circus performers, poodles also are stars at agility and flyball. Standards are still being bred as hunting dogs, with a revival of interest in using them for this purpose. But for most prospective owners, the important question is, “Do poodles make good pets?” To that, the answer is an unequivocal yes! Standards in particular are excellent family dogs, having great tolerance and affection for children, while the smaller breeds make perfect companions for people with less mobility. The poodle is a happy, fun-loving, and enthusiastic dog, who brightens his owners' days. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Poodles now range in size from “teacup” to quite large, as selective breeding pushes the limits at both ends of the spectrum.
