Whatever the country it came from it is at home in any family today.
The poodle was originally bred as a water dog and is close in relation to the Portugese Water Dog and the Irish Water Spaniel. In fact it’s name originates from the German term “Puddeln” which means “to splash in water”. It was used as a retriever for game fowl and as a retriever has kept it’s intelligence from the field and it’s heartiness and versatility to this day. The Poodles dense, curly coat is good for shedding water…but not hair! It does still need to be groomed though.
Poodle grooming is somewhat of an art if you want it to be. I have seen them that look like they belong on the cover of Vanity Fair, or trimmed like a lion in the African wilderness. Whatever your choice they still need to be brushed on a regular basis and trimmed a few times a year. Special attention should be paid to their ears, to make sure they stay free of infection causing debris.
