Poodle Puppies - About the Poodle Breed

The poodle breed is recognized for the variety of sizes: Standard, Moyen, Miniature, and Toy. Although Moyen Poodles are not recognized by the AKC this has become the most popular size of a poodle. Poodles are known to be one of the most intelligent breeds in the world. These dogs are highly trainable and will make a wonderful addition to your family.

Poodle Characteristics

What is a Moyen or Medium Poodle?

 “Moyen” is a French word that translates to “medium” in English and is now the fourth size in the poodle breed. A Moyen poodle is bigger than a miniature poodle but smaller than a standard poodle. Most Moyens are derived from pairing two Moyen poodles together but you can achieve this medium size by using a Standard poodle and a Miniature poodle to obtain a smaller stature. Poodles were bred to this medium size because so many people thought this would be the perfect size for a dog. Big enough to run, play and be a good family dog but small enough that they do not require a big space to live. 

What are the different sizes of Poodles?

Over time the Standard Poodle started to break off into smaller-sized poodles and while maintaining their size we now have four poodle options:

  • Toy Poodles: up to 10 inches tall and 6-9 pounds
  • Miniatures Poodles: 11-15 inches tall and 10-15 pounds
  • Moyen Poodles: 15-22 inches tall and 15-35 pounds
  • Standard Poodles: 22-27 inches tall and 45-60 pounds

No matter what size you go with, your poodle will have the best temperament and health making it a great addition to your family!

What is the Temperament and Personalities of Poodles?

Poodles are very intelligent companions that aim to please their owners. With this being said, they can be trained to a high degree which is why they make great therapy dogs, support dogs, and overall great family dogs. Poodles are highly adaptable and really do well in any type of home including apartments but do like to be in a structured environment where they can be part of the family. Poodles do have a higher energy level but whether you decide to go with a Standard, Medium, Mini, or Toy, all four sizes require minimal exercise like playing in the dog park, a daily walk or simply playing inside. 

Poodle Coat/Grooming

Poodles will have curly or corded coats that are a great option if you are looking for a hypoallergenic dog. Being a non-shedding dog breed is great but this will require them to be regularly bathed and clipped every 6-8 weeks. Since their ears drop down, you will need to have their ears cleaned frequently and pull out the hair that grows inside their ear canal to avoid ear infections. Best practice when bringing your puppy home for the first time is to get into the grooming habits of brushing your puppy often to prevent their hair from matting.

What is the Health of Poodles?

Poodles are relatively a very healthy dog breed and have an average lifespan of 10 to 15 years depending on the size.  Here at Furever Friends, we also offer a Health Guarantee and adhere to an extremely high standard of health to ensure that all of our puppies go home with their new families healthy & happy.

The medium poodle otherwise known the the "Moyen" is a very highly intelligent, trainable, and pleasant temperament dog. They typically mature to 15-19 inches at the shoulders and could weigh 15-25 pounds when fully matured. Medium poodles are excellent family dogs, including families with children. They are just the right size to travel with or even cuddle up in a lazyboy around the house. They are also know to enjoy the outdoors such as hiking, running, and water sports.  

Their intelligence level makes them a excellent candidate for a service animal for people who don't require a large breed. Schools, Hospitals, and assisted living is a great place for them to demonstrate their ability's to show patients and calmness. 

Extensive grooming is required for this breed. Poodles must be bathed regularly and clipped every six to eight weeks to maintain healthy hair and skin. Poodles shed little to no hair and are good for allergy sufferers since they are labeled as hypoallergic dogs.

The standard Poodle is known to be very noble, good natured, graceful, and enjoyable. They are very intelligent dogs with make training very easy and relaxed. Some train these dogs to be hunters or even the typical family dog. Their typical weight and height can be anywhere from 15+ inches and 45-70lbs.  This breed can be very high strung if not given the proper amount of attention that it needs. They dislike being alone because they are known to be very sociable dogs. 

If you are looking for a guard dog I would definitely try to avoid this breed. They don't understand the concept of strangers. They are very friendly! 

Things you should consider before purchasing this breed is make sure you are constantly firm, confident pack leader, and providing daily excuses to avoid separation anxiety and other unwanted behaviors.
