The Mini Poodle Breed
The Mini Poodle is remarkably intelligent. Highly responsive, it is said to be one of the most trainable breeds. Sweet, cheerful, perky and lively, it likes to be with people. Delightful, very amusing and keen. Socialize these dogs well. They make very good watchdogs for their size. Don’t let their small size fool you. They are fine with any home, from apartments to estates. They sometimes prefer to live indoors with the family, particularly the smaller Toy and Miniature Poodles, since they have no trouble getting their ya-yas out in the house but would also love a day out with the family running and playing.
A good Poodle who’s been taught canine manners has a calm disposition, especially if he gets regular exercise to burn off his natural energy.
An outstanding trait of the Poodle is his intelligence. He is often said to have human-like intelligence, an amazing cleverness that astounds his owners. Of course, smart dogs can be difficult to live with. They learn fast — good habits and bad — and they remember everything.
