TThe Standard Poodle is a gundog and originally used in France and Germany as a retriever of waterfowl. To help the dog in the water the hunters clipped off the coat around it's hindquarters, and left the cheat coat on for warmth, the coat around the leg joints was protection against injury. This is where the traditional clip comes from. They are a very intelligent dog and always ready for fun and play. They love to be apart of the family and thrive on the human company.

Grooming- bath regularly and clip every 6 to 8 weeks.

Exercise- love to go for walks and adore the water so swimming is another great form of exercise for them. Regular exercise is needed to keep them fit and happy.
