Default Miniature Poodles

Anyone know any well?

I'm really interested in these guys. I've always said NO poodle hair but I've discovered that I enjoy trimming dog hair (lol).

They seem like awesome little agility dogs. They seem to me to be very Summer-like? Not too difficult but have a lot of drive and biddability and are really great agility dogs. I've been very impressed by youtube videos of them!

I'd like to find a breed that is very similar to Summer. She's just great- nice and easy and confident. Not too demanding for exercise but happy to go do whatever. She LOVES to work and has exceptional biddability. She's athletic and lightly built. Very easy to live with and always has been easy to live with.

So yeah. Tell me about mini poodles.

All I know is I want one. There are some that compete here in obedience and OMG I WANT ONE!

I'd keep it in a puppy clip all the time (or try to Bedlington clip it, because that's the only grooming I know how to do ).

I want one.

I'd have to just shave it down all the way. That's all I know how to do. I'm sooooo not paying for a groomer.

A gal where I used to live has had mini poodles forever. Agility, obedience, rally, whatever. She has been tremendously successful with them and they are so fun to watch.

I don't know any well, but I had a few hour long working interview as a dog trainer at an organization, and one of the dogs they bred to work for them that I got to work with was a black mini poodle. I thought, "Oh this should be fun " but it actually was. She was a 10 month old named Cleo - my task was to get her to move three feet away from me and nose target a CD in as few reps as possible. She had never been taught targeting.

She picked it up LIKE THAT. Maybe 10 reps and she was successfully running back to the CD 3-5 feet from me. I would have taken her home on the spot. XD

And I'm not a poodle/small dog fan for my own dogs, typically.

(Ironically, paps are the other small dogs that I would own to do stuff with. I would totally adopt a random older little dog just to snuggle, but I don't like most small dogs for actually sporting with. I would with a pap or mini poodle if I ever needed a smaller dog.)

You'd have a blast with a mini poodle. Very easy to train, loads of fun, ready to go whenever you are but just as ready to be a cuddlebug.

There was one in Limit's agility class. She was awesome. Super fast, drivey, crazy tugging - absolutely awesome. And I am not really into poodles or small dogs...

They're nice little dogs. My 'family dog' is one, we got her from a cat shelter when she was a year old, now she's 13. Seizures are a concern, as is separation anxiety. Cleo does have seizures, when she was younger they were infrequent and mild but they got really bad last year so now she's on daily meds. She was dog reactive when she was young and VERY LOUD, but who knows how she got to that point as that's where she was when we adopted her, let alone how she was bred. She's very much a one person dog. She is scary smart, Wes doesn't hold a candle to her problem solving skills.

I like to dog

Diesel is mostly poodle, I really believe that he is 3/4 mini poodle and 1/4 Yorkie, and he is great. Even though he wasnt introduced to anything for the first year of his life he has come around and really loves agility. He is easily trained and I LOVE his coat.

And just for fun lol.

I have a friend with a mini poodle and a standard

Her little guy is a fun little dog. He loves to train and he picks things up very quickly. He is a happy and incredibly sweet dog.

I think he is pretty awesome
