Forget any idea you've had that the Poodle is a pampered empty-headed lap dog. Originally bred as a water retriever, the Poodle is extremely smart and very active. The combination of brains and beauty made them favorites of European royalty. While Standard Poodles are the best athletes, Miniature and Toy Poodles are also enthusiastic and energetic. Poodle puppies are eager to please and easily trained. They'll thrive on the challenge of learning new tricks or participating in dog sports. The non-allergenic coat is a big plus, too, for people suffering from allergies.
