Pros & Cons of a Poodle | Dog Breeds

Pros & Cons of a Poodle | Dog Breeds


I’m Julia Szabo, also known as a Pet Reporter,
and I am the “”Living with Dogs”” columnist for dogster.com. I’ve actually written 6 books and I’m hard
at work on my next one. It will be about about dogs — that’s as much
as I can say right now. I love dogs and I think nobody’s life is complete
without one. So I’m here to tell you about a variety of
different dogs breeds that might suit your lifestyle. I hope you’ll adopt one soon. The poodle is actually one of my favorite
all time breeds, and a lot of people dismiss the poodle flat out as a foo-foo dog, or a
frivolous, you know, not serious dog. But I have news for everyone, the poodle is
a very serious dog. Um, he’s an athlete, he’s gorgeous, he’s super
intelligent. He is really one of the most intelligent dog
breeds out there. Him and the border collie are the tops. Ironically, when we think of the poodle being
in the circus, wearing a tu-tu, and standing on her hind legs and twirling, um we forget
the fact that she can learn these tricks and this repertoire. This just proves how intelligent she is. So let’s not blame her just because some not
very nice people put a tu-tu on her. Poodles are incredibly athletic, they love
the water. Um in fact, the show-cut that we all kind
of make fun where it looks like topiary and he’s shaved in the back to look like pom poms,
this was actually designed to help them be more aerodynamic in the water. The other great thing about poodles is that
people who have allergies to most dogs tend to be able to tolerate poodles a lot better
because their hair is closer to human hair than to classic dog fur. One of my favorite, all time historical figures,
John Steinbeck the writer, wrote a very, very famous book called “”Travels with Charlie:
In Search of America””. And in this book, he basically drove across
the country with his standard poodle Charlie, and he had very, very trenchant insights on
the different pockets of American culture that he saw through his poodle’s eyes. You know, let’s remember that when we think
of a poodle, because poodles are cool.

  1. My poodle is a SHE!

  2. My poodle hates the water. But she is very smart and energetic 😀

  3. my poodle does not look like a poodle because he does not look poofy

  4. I think she calls poodles HE because it is ALOT better than calling an IT don't you think? She doesn't make a video for every single person who owns a poodle. It doesn't matter what she calls it

  5. 🙃🙃🤑🤑😻😻

  6. So many words about poodles, but no video… of poodles. Also, why say that someone is not nice just because they dress a poodle in a tutu for a show? Poodles love the attention of a crowd, and dressing up or looking silly is a part of getting people’s attention, and poodles don’t mind that one bit!

  7. Why do you keep assuming the poodle's gende4??

  8. We're not interested in shitbulls, Aka pitbull. You claim to love poodles but own a house full of pit bulls they will surely turn on you As the leading dog breeds of killings, attacks and unprovoked attacks. Don't even show them in your introduction video. As of 2018 they lead the charts in deaths by bites. And as of recent they ate their female owner in Virginia. They were perfectly fine. There's no reason to own these breeds. Facts are facts. It is the breed and not the owner.

  9. Where's the cons?

  12. They can be aggressive with strangers

  13. Most people who dismiss poodles have never owned one. These dogs were originally hunting water fowl retrievers and can still be used today for that purpose.
