Miniature Poodles are the bigger brothers of Toy Poodles, weighing a few kilos more and being a little bit taller. They are not as fragile looking as the Toy Poodle but still very delicate compared to their very big brother, the Standard Poodle.
Poodles come in high in the list of smartest dog breeds. They are natural performers that love to learn and please. And they are very affectionate to their owners.
Miniature Poodles may look posh and grand, and some people even think they may be a little vain or overly dramatic. But in fact, the opposite is true - this breed just loves to play and have fun. Some owners prefer to not allow it, but given the chance a Miniature Poodle will roll in mud and happily go for a swim.
The Miniature Poodle's friendly eyes are always smiling. Their intelligence and willingness to learn make a lot of people fall in love with this breed.
They enjoy the spotlight and makes great circus/ trick dogs who will thrive on the recognition of their talents. The louder the applause, the better their performance will be!
Another reason why Miniature Poodles are so popular these days is their curly hair which doesn't tend to shed. Daily brushing and 8-10 weeks grooming appointments are recommended to keep their fur shine and mat free.
