    I've been researching breeds for when I get a dog in the near future. Redpill me on standard poodles, they're near the top of my list right now.

      >Coat
      Dog doesn't shed. Do you like not having hair all over your floor, furniture, and clothes? Seriously, more hair comes off my head than my dog. It needs to be line-brushed unlike a regular dog though. If you go to a groomer every 4-5 weeks, you might be able to get away with a short clip and no brushing yourself, but your groomer will still hate you. Poodles go through a coat change around 6 months of age and for standards, it will last until they are about 3 years old. This means it will mat and tangle more easily during this time and you'll have to line brush and comb every day if you want a longer clip. Keep them short and you'll be alright though. After the coat change, minimal line brushing (once a week, really) is all you need for a medium or short clip. It becomes really easy to take care of as your dog get older. All poodles fade in color, due to this coat change. This makes for some really cool colors like silver or cafe au lait, but vibrant reds will became a lot duller after the first year.
      >training
      The huge difference here is that poodles are just so much more attentive to humans than a lot of other dogs. They are extremely good at noticing human body language and interpreting it more than other dogs. This makes them crafty and clever, they will appear to be able to read people's mind. It's also super annoying because mine really seems to enjoy taking advantage of people and knows that I'm the only person who will consistently make her work for something rather than her just taking it from someone. But people are nice and your dog will probably look goofy enough that they won't care. For you, this makes training super easy because they're reading your body language cue and learn new things in one trial, no problem. With an older dog and really good reinforcement history, there's problem teaching new behaviors without formal training set up.

      >vs. doodles
      I'll mention this since others have talked about them in the thread. I think people are finally starting to wake up about these dogs, but at the same time there are still so many people getting these dogs. If there is anyone reading this right now and is dead set on bringing a doodle into their home: please adopt one instead of going to a breeder. No good breeder breeds mixed breed dogs, much less doodles. Because of the way genetics works, you are going to get a dog that is somewhere between 100% the mother and 100% the father.This virtually guarantees that the coat of this dog will have both poodle hair AND whatever the cross is (golden retreiver, lab, etc.). Pic related. Which means you have two competing types of dog hair growing in at the root, which means the dog will become matted at the root nearly immediately. Doodles shed. No amount of "we like his hair long :)" to the groomer will prevent you from getting your dog shaved down like this

      https://i.imgur.com/D1PUUag.jpg

      I have a goldendoodle. She's super hyper and pretty awesome. I used to not like poodles until I got her. Now, I'm a big fan. they're also one of the most intelligent dog breeds.

      . And makes line brushing your dog a necessity every single day. On top of that, these dogs are bred by either karen from down the street who has no idea what animal husbandry is, or by the amish who churn them out. Neither of which is a dog you want in your house or as a pet. Even more, these breeders or whoever is selling these dogs nearly always recommend waiting until the dog is nearly a year for the dog be groomed, which guarantees the dog will be matted and need to be shaved down and hate going to the groomer. A good poodle breeder will have their puppies groomed several (3+) times before they even send them home and recommend frequent grooming. This is why people give these dogs away so frequently. Want a dog that doesn't shed? Get a poodle. Poodles don't "shed less," they don't shed at all.

        Lies commonly told by people selling golden doodles
        >he's a mini
        The dog could be as big as either parent, so good luck getting a small dog when one parent is 180 lb bernese mountain dog.
        >he doesn't shed
        Poodles don't shed at all. Doodles will still shed, just not as much
        >he doesn't need to be groomed until he's 8 months old
        Enjoy your matted dog and shave down. See you in a year for the whole thing to be repeated.
        >they have such a good temperament
        If this dog was bred in a puppy mill, that is not a pet, that is a livestock animal. When susan down the street breeds to dogs together just for the money, she's also probably not socializing or handling these dogs or exposing them to sounds or new people.You are not guaranteed a golden retriever temperament just because a parent or grandparent was a GR. Even then, that's based on the individual temperament of the parent as well, and you know those puppy mills dogs are probably not very nice since they don't have to be.
        >merle
        There's probably barely even any poodle in there at that point.

        I don't care, I have a doodle that literally doesn't shed, but one of her parents was backbred to poodle(so that aprent was 75% poodle approx), and she's great. She was expensive though, and her breeder did talk about getting groomed before 6 months, though I cut her hair myself. Yes I'm bad and don't brush her enough but i do bathe her(and then groom her after) multiple times per month.

    Love these dogs, they don't deserve their reputation. They're extremely high energy, very intelligent and s b***h to groom so that keeps a good 90% of people from properly caring for them. Huskydoodles are the best.

          In what world is doing commands without consistent rewards a sign of intelligence? The “smart” dogs are just so dumb they work for free. A wolf may learn to come when called the first time but they will never listen unless the reward is worth more than what they want to do. They may not do ANY command unless they first verify you have food with you. A dog will always come even if they haven’t been paid in weeks because they are stupid.

        They need to be cut and thoroughly washed every month or two at a minimum to prevent hair mats, but will need more frequent washing anytime they get visibly dirty because their coat traps more dirt unlike double coat dogs that shed dirt off their coat.

    Poodles are awesome dogs. Owning a well bred standard poodle is based.

    I don't have one but they're some of the best dogs I encounter in the dog park. Playful, up for wrestling and running and friendly to strangers. Also never an issue with aggression. Some other anon mentioned this but they've got a surprisingly intimidating bark. I'd definitely keep one in another life.

    Maybe it's just all the owners of the pure bred poodles, but every single one of them is prissy or a big stressing sissy.

    Doodles, designer mutts are huge buttholes and I have no idea where it comes from. Labs are not like this, Poodles are not like this, Sheepdogs are not like this, bernese, no matter the mix. Every single doodle is just fricking weird.

    Never had a purebred Poodle or a cross until very recently.
    My mom emergency adopted a golden doodle a few years ago (elderly couple died and it needed a home) and she was one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met. Extremely affectionate towards my mom, playful and energetic at times but chill most other times. Just a really great dog.
    I recently got a Giant Schnauzer/Standard Poodle and he has also been just one of the best dogs I've ever owned. Love him to death. Every time I go for a walk someone inevitably wants to pet him and tells me how nice he is.
    I really slept on Poodles, they're great dogs.
    It is true that they are too smart for their own good, but that's just a training thing.

    It's a shame that dogs that are generally popular with women get a bad rap due to misogyny. It was poodles for a while, now it's Chihuahuas and purse-dogs. The reality is that every dog can be a good dog, and if you hate a breed because it's popular with women, it may be time to take your medication.
    Poodles and Chihuahuas stay winning.

      Has nothing to do with misogyny, it's because most people think of the super fancified, painstakingly groomed show poodles and think they look ridiculous and foppish. Most people have never even met a poodle and have no idea that they're some of the smartest and most good-natured and loyal breeds that exists, and that normal haircuts for them are fine and you don't actually have to spend $600 every month getting them a perfect english saddle cut

    He is very friendly, not that intelligent and not very athletic
    He is good at playing with other dogs, good at mirroring and reading body language
    Mostly he just wants to sniff things, piss on things especially strange things, chase and be chased and play
