What kind of personalities do poodles have?

I am trying to decide if a poodle is the right dog for me.


Answer by  karenttrouble (46)

Personality is not entirely breed dependent. There will be active and lazy, curious and shy, dogs in every breed. Poodles are known as intelligent and energetic. They also tend to be people oriented and eager to please.

Historically the poodle was a water-dog; a retriever. They are active intelligent dogs, seeking affection and companionship. The poodle is not a loner and attaches to its' human or family. As an attentive, stable, animal, they learn quickly and enjoy doing tricks. Being people oriented, they make good pets and watch dogs.

Poodles are very docile and patient. They are actually one of the top five dogs to own if you have a family and kids. They are extremely patient and will ignore things like tail and ear pulling by children most of the time. It takes a whole lot to set them off.

No one breed of dog has one personality type. With this said, it may be helpful to know that poodles are very intelligent dogs and love to be active and play. Poodles are often times mischieveous as well.

Poodles often reflect and compliment the personality of their owner. They can become easily spoiled but are generally amazingly intelligent.
