8 Things You Should Know About Owning A Poodle

Poodles have a reputation for being stuck up and snooty. Anyone who has owned a poodle, though, knows that these clever dogs are anything but snobs. Here are a few important things you should know if you are thinking about adding a poodle to the family.

1. They are known for their dignified attitude 

Poodles are proud, clever, and incredibly elegant dogs. So without proper training they are quick to assume they are the alpha in the house.

2. Good news though, they are highly trainable

Known for their intelligence, poodles are quick to learn. Having a smart dog is great for first time owners. It is important, though to keep them stimulated or they will get bored quickly and form bad habits just as easily as they form good ones. Taking an obedience class with your poodle is a good idea, especially if you are a first time dog owner.

3. They’re protective

You’ll have no need for a doorbell. Your poodle will announce your guests before they have a chance to ring. They may take some time to warm up to new people, but they are very affectionate and warm with their family.

4. But they have a playful streak

Poodles can romp with the best of them. They can be goofy and standard poodles in particular will be happy to tumble with the kids. (The smaller breeds can get overwhelmed by kids because of their size).

5. They don’t shed much

And are therefore often referred to as being hypoallergenic. If you have dog allergies, a poodle can be a great breed for you. Their minimal shedding and frequent need for grooming means that their dander can be minimal.

6. But they definitely need to be groomed

And DIY-ing it isn’t for the faint of heart. If you are considering getting a poodle, it is a good idea to factor the cost of a groomer into your budget. Your poodle will want to be brushed, bathed, and trimmed every three to six weeks because their hair grows continuously. Length and style is up to you and your pooch, but shorter means less upkeep for you both. Consult with your groomer and vet about what grooming you should be doing at home to keep your pup happy and healthy. Also, poodles have weepy eyes that can stain the surrounding fur. Keep alcohol-free pet wipes on hand to prevent stains.

7. They are not demanding when it comes to exercise

Poodles prefer being indoors with their family and are happy in most sizes of home. But they definitely need their daily walk; an unexercised poodle is an unhappy poodle and they will not be shy to tell you about it.

8. They love other pets

When poodles are socialized young, they tend to get along with other animals really well.

    13 Books About Dogs That Aren't Cliche

    As an integral part of many families, lives and societies, dogs are heavily documented in modern literature. They take up such a big space in our hearts that it is impossible to turn around without seeing a new book about dogs on a "best of" list. 

    Here are a few different genres of books about dogs and some titles to get you started. 

    Fiction and literature 

    Fifteen Dogs by Andre Alexis. A Canadian Giller Prize winner: A bet between the gods Hermes and Apollo leads them to grant human consciousness to a group of dogs overnighting at a Toronto veterinary clinic. Suddenly capable of more complex thought, the pack is torn between those who resist the new way of thinking, preferring the old 'dog' ways, and those who embrace the change.
    The Call of the Wild by Jack London. A classic told from the perspective of a wild dog dragged away to be a sledge dog in the harsh and freezing cold Yukon. Can he rise above his enemies and become the master of his realm once again?
    Good Dog by Graham Chaffe. A graphic novel about the life of a stray dog. Readers accompany Ivan as he navigates dog society, weathers pack politics, and surveys canine-human interactions.
    The Dog Stars by Peter Heller. Hig somehow survived the flu pandemic that killed everyone he knows. Now his wife is gone, his friends are dead, and he lives in the hangar of a small abandoned airport with his dog, Jasper.

     

    Photo books 

    The Dogist by Elias Weiss Friedman. Every page presents dog portraits that command our attention.
    Shelter Dogs in a Photobooth by Guinnivere Shuster. What better way to showcase adoptable dogs than by letting their true personalities shine in a photo booth! 

    Underwater Dogs by Seth Casteel. From leaping lab to diving dachshund, the water is where a dog's distinct personality shines through.

     

    Wet Dog by Sophie Gamand. Elevating dog photography to the status of art, these expressive portraits of our canine friends mirror our very own human emotions.
    A Dog Named Jimmy by Rafael Mantesso. One day when Jimmy collapsed in happy exhaustion next to the white wall, on a whim Rafael grabbed a marker and drew a new world around his ginger-eared pup.

    Non-fiction 

     
    The Goodness of Dogs by India Knight. With chapters ranging from how to choose a breed (and where to get it from), to feeding and training your dog, to choosing a vet, and how to cope with illnesses and death.
    My Dog: The Paradox by Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal. After years of carefully observing his own dog, Rambo, Inman follows his #1 New York Times best-selling How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You, with this ode to the furry, four-footed, tail-wagging bundle of love, and unbridled energy frequently dubbed man’s best friend.

    What the Dog Knows: Scent, Science, and the Amazing Ways Dogs Perceive the World by Cat Warren. A firsthand exploration of the extraordinary abilities and surprising, sometimes life-saving talents of “working dogs.”

    Off The Leash: A Year At The Dog Park by Matthew Gilbert. Off The Leash is a group portrait of dog people, specifically the strange, wonderful, neurotic, and eccentric dog people who gather at Amory Park, overlooking Boston near Fenway Park.

    5 Ways Your Dog Makes You A More Adventurous Person

    Life is wonderful. Life is even more wonderful when your best friend has paws! Even the smallest endeavours seem like grand adventures with your furry companion. 

    Check out the top 5 Ways Your Dog Makes You A More Adventurous Person!


      

    1. Try New Things

    We've all done it! Those organic peanut butter biscuits smell delicious, and the ingredients list is worth drooling over. You know they're safe for human consumption. So, what's the harm in having a taste?

    2. Explore Hidden Treasures

    You never thought to turn onto that dirt road before the mutt came along, but what the heck! There's a whole world up that mountain, filled with new smells, trees to pee on, and rocks to climb. Every path has endless possibilities.

    3. Dog Friendly Shopping

    Yes, we said it! Dog friendly stores can be found in most cities, and nothing's better than spending the day on the town with your pup. Places like Vancouver, BC have entire streets lined with dog friendly shops, from cosmetic retailers to high end fashion. 

    4. Rediscover Your Neighbourhood

    Every city has a whole doggy-centric community you wouldn't know about unless you had a furry companion. Dog parks and beaches go unnoticed until you start looking for them. You'll discover all sorts of exciting and beautiful new destinations within your own neighbourhood once you open your eyes a little more.  

    5. Human and Doggy Playdates

    Once you welcome a pup into your life, you also welcome a community of passionate pet parents looking to make friends with like-minded individuals. These people become excellent resources and sometimes even lifelong friends.

    Who knew a dog could help get you out of your shell?
