Variety Is the Spice of Their Lives

Poodle puppies come in three different sizes. There are many similarities within the three sizes, and some differences, which mainly exists with their physical characteristics and a few in their behavior.

There’s the Standard Poodle.

They are the largest of the three. Standard Poodle puppies are active and energetic, but they lean towards being more reserved and calmer than Miniature and Toy Poodles. They’re considered the worker of the three, because they like having a job to do.

Miniature Poodles are the most active of the three.

They love to be around people, often following them around the house. When you’re seated, they’re right there in your lap snuggled in a ball. If you’re looking for Poodle puppies for sale and have little children at home, the Miniature is best suited for them.

In Germany, they were used predominantly as  water retrievers. The name of the Poodle comes from the German word pudel, which means to splash in water.
