Poodles come in three size varieties: Standards should be more than 15 inches tall at the shoulder; Miniatures are 10″ to 15′ tall; Toys stand no more than 10 inches. All three varieties have the same build and proportions. Most people do not keep their poodles cut in the Continental Cut as pictured here…most people like an easier to manage puppy cut.
Standard Poodles are more active and athletic than the toy and miniature. They require room to play and romp and love to take walks.
Poodles of any size are very active dogs that require good exercise every day. They love to run, jump, play, swim and more. They are super SMART! They are eager to please and learn quickly.
