Standard Poodles are known for their beautiful, non-shed, hypo-allergenic coats. They are also one of the most intelligent dog breeds! They desire to please their owners. Poodles are a watch dog -- meaning they alert you when there is something or someone out of the ordinary. They are so fun to train, as they love to learn new things, and performing different tricks! They are excellent with children. We absolutely LOVE our Standard Poodles!
