Toy Poodles are the smallest of the Poodle breeds, weighing just 2-4kg. Toy Poodles' friendly smiling eyes and their intelligence and willingness to learn make a lot of people fall in love with this cute little breed.
They seem quite delicate due to their small size and looks, and can often be seen with their head popping out of the handbags that their owners carry them around in!
Once let out, Toy Poodles will wow you with all the performance skills you taught them. Like their bigger brothers, the Standard and Mini Poodle, they are natural performers and love to learn and please.
Their looks may make them seem a bit posh, but in fact Toy Poodles just like to play and have fun. Given the chance they will happily roll in mud and go for a swim.
They enjoy the spotlight and make great circus/ trick dogs who will thrive on the recognition of their talents. The louder the applause the better the performance will be.
Another reason why this breed is so popular is its curly hair which doesn't tend to shed. Daily brushing and 8-10 weeks grooming appointments are recommended to keep their fur shiny and unmatted.
