This intelligent breed learns quickly, but owners should be careful: It's as easy to accidentally teach your Poodle bad habits as it is to teach him good ones, so if you're new to dogs, sign up for an with a skilled trainer. That goes for Toy and Miniature Poodles as well. Many owners of small dogs skip training, and wind up with a badly behaved dog.
Toy dogs require less space than other dog breeds, they shed less, and they eat and eliminate smaller amounts. Many miniature dogs also need less exercise than the larger breeds, usually just a walk or two a day. Each breed has its own activity level. Some, like the Pekingese, have a lot of stamina and love long walks. Others enjoy spending their time as lap dogs, and content with a short jaunt around the block.

The comes in three sizes: standard, miniature and . Though the standard is far too large to be considered in this slideshow, both the miniature and toy versions of this breed are just the right size. Her reputation for being prissy is ill-deserved — in fact, she's often among the smartest of dogs and, as is clear by her status as No. 1 on this list, tends to be a tremendous addition to the family. Many Poodles are relatively easy to train (including house training), hardworking and happy. She can be a tough competitor in sports like obedience and agility, and she tends to love attention, whether it comes in the show ring or at home with her family. I adore Miniature Shnauzers, but I think excessive barking is hard wired with that breed. I have a hub about "How to train your dog not to bark" but the main recommendation is to walk the dog more, since tired dogs bark less. With Shnauzers, they even bark when sleeping!!!The Miniature and Toy Poodles are small dogs weighing between 6 and 20 pounds. The Poodle is a highly intelligent and very trainable breed. They tend to be friendly towards children and strangers, though the smaller varieties tend to be livelier than the standard. Poodles are also the most famous and for this reason get crossed with many other breeds to make the so called designer breeds.First, ignore the silly show-ring clips. Poodles can be clipped to look like normal dogs. Look at the Miniature Poodle in the photo -- that's my dog, Buffy. It takes me 15 minutes every 6 weeks to run over her coat with a handheld clipper and turn her into a shorthaired, normal-looking dog who is a snap to brush. (Poodles also have the advantage of being the lightest-shedding, most hypoallergenic of all coated breeds.)
