In the early days, Poodles have been called “Pudel”, “Water Dogs”, and “Caniche”. They possess a lustrous dense coat which may be curly or corded but hardly ever sheds thus making them ideal pets for allergy sufferers. They do need to be groomed regularly to keep their coats free from tangles. Some dog owners choose to have their poodle’s coat clipped close to the body for lesser maintenance. This dog breed can live well with young children. Their affectionate and loving nature helps them form strong bonds of friendship with each member of the pack. They make excellent watchdogs and are constantly alert and quick to bark and sound off an alarm.
