Toy Poodle

Toy Poodles

All Poodles (toy poodles, miniature poodles, and standard poodles) are the same breed of dog. More than the toy poodle the standard poodle variety is the oldest. But Toy Poodles are not new; Louis XVI of France had toy poodles, and many paintings from the 15th and 16th centuries show tiny dogs that look much like today’s Toy Poodles.

Dogshaadi is crazy about Toy Poodles. We love them.

Toy Poodles stand 10 inches tall or less at the shoulder and weigh 5 to 7 pounds. There is no official size other than this; kennel clubs do not recognize teacup poodles (teacup toy poodles) or tiny poodles (tiny toy poodles). The head is moderately rounded, with a long muzzle. The eyes are dark and oval, and the ears are dropped. The tail is docked. The coat is curly and dense.

Toy Poodle

Toy PoodlesCoat color should be one solid color and may be apricot, silver, cream, black, blue, or one of many other colors. Grooming the Toy Poodle is a complicated process. Show dogs must be groomed in a specific cut that requires some knowledge, so potential owners who wish to show their dogs should discuss this with a breeder prior to buying a dog. Pet owners often take their dogs to a professional groomer on a monthly basis; potential owners should be aware of the cost. Between grooming sessions, the dog should be brushed every other day to prevent matting. The Toy Poodle is an active dog but is small enough that its exercise needs are easily met. Toy Poodles will enjoy daily walks but can also play in the house.

Toy Poodle Puppies

Toy Poodles are bright and intelligent but are easily spoiled and, when spoiled, can be very demanding. Fun training, including housetraining, should begin early so the dog grows up understanding household rules. Toy Poodles also need early socialization, as they can be wary of strangers. Toy Poodles are great companions for people who spend time at home. Health concerns include Addison’s disease, Cushing’s disease, eye defects, luxated patellas, and epilepsy.
