Poodle Puppies For Sale
Why Look for Poodle Puppies for Sale?
Getting a puppy is always fun, but it's important to consider several factors before choosing one. One of the first of these is personality. Even among puppies of the same litter, each one is an individual and must be seen as such to avoid disappointment. Then, there are the breed-level differences. Size, general need for exercise, coat type, overall intelligence, and more can be predicted by looking at the breed. That's why people know it's a bad idea to try to keep a Great Dane in a small apartment, and a similarly poor one to try to get a miniature dog to herd cattle.
When you see poodle puppies for sale, you need to be even more specific about the breed details. That's because there are several different sizes of poodles that are commonly bred. The standard poodle is the biggest one, while the toy is the tiniest. If you don't account for this, you can be in for a big (or very tiny) surprise once the puppy grows to adulthood! Always be sure to ask, regardless of the current size of puppies for sale.
Overall, a poodle for sale will be smarter than the average dog, but can also be willful and think it's the boss of the house. Therefore, careful training is needed during puppyhood to ensure that you claim that "boss" position and keep it. Training is also needed to minimize problems like destructive chewing and other unwanted behaviors.
In terms of appearance, poodle puppies for sale have very versatile looks. This is because of the hair, which is famous for its distinctive show cut. The hair is very curly and can get quite long, and this lets it hold styles that most breeds cannot match. This gives you the opportunity to not only do the show cut, but pretty much any sort of haircut you'd like. Many choose to cut the hair evenly all over unless they show their dogs, but the hair will hold pretty much any variation you want without the need for anything more than scissors to make it happen.
If these traits sound enticing to you, be sure to ask about poodles at a kennel that has puppies for sale. Alternatively, find an adult poodle for sale and adopt him or her. Some of these adults are retired breeding dogs, and they are occasionally available from breeding kennels. One of the best things about adult dogs is that they are typically already potty trained and socialized, so their age shouldn't be seen as a downside. Once an adult gets used to you, he or she will be an excellent companion.
