So many words can describe the poodle!  Gregarious, fun loving, gentle, clowns!  Poodles are chameleons that will do whatever it is they believe you want them to do.  They can have boundless energy on a hike, or sit on the couch binge watching your favorite shows.  Their ability to anticipate and react to you is beyond amazing.  FAR from the frou-frou dog perception, poodles can do anything you ask them to do.  They were initially used to hunt ducks, it's true!  They have webbed toes and a water resistant curly course and woolly coat.  A coat that must be properly brushed and groomed on a regular basis.  The coat never stops growing and can be fashioned in as many ways as your imagination can create.  Poodles compete in obedience, agility, rally, herding, hunting, and were even one of the first breeds used by the military.  They are only limited by your ability to explain what you want them to do.
