Smart, very very smart. Avoid chronic barking by keeping him mentally stimulated.
What’s good and bad about the Toy Poodle?
- Little physical exercise is required so he is perfect for apartments and condominiums
- As much as any dog can be considered a non-shedder, this is the one. People with allergies often are able to live with a Toy Poodle
- He makes an excellent watchdog
- He’s a lively companion with amusing antics
- Professional grooming is required every four to six weeks
- Because he’s so popular, he’s been overbred which accounts for all the potential health problems. Buy only from a reputable breeder
- Avoid any Toy Poodle labeled “tea cup.” That’s just marketing language for a neurotic and sickly runt
Here’s an example of how smart these dogs can be.
