    Who has a poodle? They seem like awesome dogs. I used to walk a black standard and she was great.

    Awww she's beautiful!! I think I saw her pictures there lol do you find she's affectionate? Also do they like water? Cause I know they were originally water retrievers but in one of the videos I watched, the dog went very slow into the water, basically walked in, and seemed to be a very slow swimmer, took forever to get across the pond and back and this was really a very small pond, more of a reservoir, and also sat very still/calmly, whereas all the Labs and other retrievers I've seen (we watched a bunch of Lab retrieves next lol) have been very very excited and happy and leapt in with such gusto and could hardly contain themselves lol idk, maybe it was just this one particular poodle? I didn't watch other ones, there really aren't many hunting poodle videos lol the land retrieves and live birds they seemed much more enthused about and ran after it but the water one it didn't seem too enthused lol I am not a hunter though so it really doesn't matter much but I find the Lab and Golden's absolute love for water very entertaining haha

He was our 4th Standard Poodle and we are currently awaiting a new Standard puppy due after the New Year. They are wonderful dogs and Sawyer IMG_20171225_075146.jpg was so good with our chickens and cats . He was a pure pleasure to have.

    Do they like water and/or retrieving? I know they can and do but wouldn't want to force them. And are they veey affectionate?

    They seem like truly amazing dogs, the one I knew was, but I am a little worried they might be bossy, moody, or snippy??
