Poodle Breed Description

poodle pup-10wksThe Poodle is an old breed and there is some doubt as to the land of its origin. The English word poodle undoubtedly comes from the German pudel meaning to splash in the water, which is quite appropriate because the poodle originated as a water retriever.

The term `French' poodle was the result of the dog's great popularity in France. The Standard Poodle was widely used as a retriever and the custom of clipping the coat originated as a means to facilitate swimming in the water. This evolved into clipping the coat in various patterns to enhance the style and general appearance.The various clips are of course a matter of taste for the average owner, although specific patterns are required for the show ring.

Poodles come in three sizes: Standard (over 15 inches high at the shoulder); Miniature (10 to 15 inches) and Toy (under 10 inches). All are one breed, governed by the same standard.
