About the Poodle
The Poodle is a dog breed that comes in three varieties:
Standard Poodle, Miniature Poodle, and Toy Poodle. The breed’s origin is disputed: whether it descends from
Germany as a type of water dog, or from the French Barbet.
Ranked second most intelligent dog breed just behind the Border Collie, the Poodle is skillful in many dog sports and
activities, including agility, obedience, tracking, herding, circus performance, and assistance dogs.
Poodles have taken top honors in many conformation shows, including
"Best in Show" at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in 1991, 2002, and 2020 and at the
World Dog Show in 2007 and 2010.
They are recorded as the seventh most popular dog breed in the United States.
The Poodle has been bred in at least three sizes, including Standard, Miniature, and Toy.
According to the American Kennel Club, which recognized the breed in 1887, the Standard Poodle is the oldest of
the three varieties, and was later bred down to the Miniature and Toy sizes.
The British Kennel Club also recognizes three sizes, stating that the
Miniature and Toy are scaled-down versions of the Standard.
The Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) recognizes four sizes of one breed:
Standard, Medium, Miniature, and Toy. Poodles exist in many coat colours.
Despite the Standard Poodle's claim to greater age than the other varieties, some evidence shows the smaller
varieties developed only a short time after the breed assumed the general type by which it is recognized today.
The smallest, or Toy variety, was developed in England in the 18th century.
Hunting and working dogs were typically of the Standard variety, though some reports suggest that smaller
varieties such as the Miniature may have been popular for truffle hunting,
as their feet were less likely to damage the delicate fungi.
The Miniature and Toy varieties tend to be bred primarily for companionship.
In the mid- to late 19th century, the trade in dyeing and affixing their fur to unusual proportions began with the
need to complement the Victorian and Georgian sensibilities of these women,
to the point that their status as a dog of the middle and upper classes was
quite solid by the time of the founding of the Kennel Club in the 1870s, as they were one of the first dog breeds
