Standard poodles are the most versatile dog in the world. They range in size typically between 40 - 65 lbs, and come in all solid colors including black, blue, silver, gray, cream, apricot, red, white, brown or café-au-lait. You will see different variations in these tones. They are good with children if socialized with them and are not inclined to bite, but they do make good alert dogs. In other words, "They give you time to get your gun.” - LOL
Standard poodles are good with agility, obedience and retrieving. They don’t shed, and a healthy poodle has no odor. People with allergies have a high tolerance for the poodle, making them well known as the ideal breed for people with allergies.
High energy combined with lots of smarts lends itself to excellent companionship when properly trained. It’s imperative that Poodles receive lots of love, attention, and mental stimulation.
