Poodle

Everything was extremely great right from the beginning. We had a very bad experience with another on-line breeder but Puppy Spot was fantastic. We got our little poodle just as promised and lots of additional goodies Too! She is perfect in every way. Highly recommend Puppy Spot.

Poodle Characteristics

Poodles are a purebred dog breed that people often regard as one of the smartest breeds in the world. They are energetic, loving, graceful, and do best with plenty of exercise and time with their owners. Some poodles can grow to a large size, but will maintain a friendly, playful attitude that endears them to the entire family. They’re curious and love exploration and adventure, and bond strongly with their owners.

Fast Facts

  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Accommodating

Poodles are a playful breed that is highly intelligent and easy to train. 

Because of their highly attuned senses, Poodles can be more cautious than other breeds and may easily get stressed out by noise and other disturbances. While not your typical watchdog, you can still expect them to bark and alert you of any intruders or unexpected sounds. They’re also curious and aware, and are fun to talk to.

Poodles are hypoallergenic, which makes them one of the most popular breeds to mix. They shed the least of all coated dogs, yet it can take a lot of grooming to keep them looking the best.  Poodles can be found in a variety of colors, including black, red, and apricot. They adore interacting with their owners and will do all they can to make you happy.

Poodles are highly energetic and curious, so they require plenty of daily exercise and play. Walks and playing fetch are great ways to help them use their boundless energy. Poodles also love swimming and won’t hesitate to take a dip in your pool.

Poodles come in many sizes, but Standard Poodles are a larger breed. They weigh anywhere from 50 to 70 pounds. Poodles are generally healthy and enjoy a typical lifespan of 12 to 15 years.

Standard Poodles typically grow between 18 and 25 inches. While this is the average height, Poodles over 15 inches are typically considered a Standard Poodle, distinct from the smaller miniature and toy poodles.

How dog-friendly is Iowa?

Iowa is a dog-friendly travel destination and has a lot of dog-lovers. But a few issues cause the state to rank rather poorly for dog-friendliness, particularly its lax animal welfare laws. 


We investigated two big studies ranking all 50 states by important pet-friendliness factors. The studies looked at things like pet-friendly accommodations, pet care and services, the number of dog parks or outdoor space, and animal welfare laws. 


The first study, by animal safety group Pawsafe, ranked Iowa as the 41st most pet-friendly state. The second study, by consumer safety group Safewise, ranked it as the 43rd most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Combining these two studies together shows Iowa towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
