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.
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 Minnesota?
Minnesota has some excellent dog-friendly accommodations and services and is well on its way to becoming one of the more pet-friendly states. It’s a great place to own a dog!
We evaluated scores across two primary studies to get accurate state rankings. Both studies ranked states according to various pet-friendly criteria like animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations and services, and the number of hiking trails and dog parks.
The first study, by animal advocacy group Pawsafe, ranked Minnesota as 14th most pet-friendly state. This includes a good ranking for its animal welfare laws which evaluate laws against abuse, neglect and fighting.
Safewise, a national safety evaluator, ranked Minnesota as the 26th most pet-friendly state. A little lower than Pawsafe, but still doing pretty well comparatively.
Combining these two studies together puts Minnesota towards the middle of the pack of pet-friendly states.
