Understanding About Poodle Care

Jul 19, 2008
Owning a dog is a really wonderful thing. They make great companions and also keep watch over the home and protect the family. There are literally hundreds of different breeds that one can choose from, but the Poodle is definitely a fan favorite and for good reason. The Poodle is a beautiful, caring and affectionate breed of dog one that makes a great family pet.

Poodle breeding is also popular by both good and bad breeders. Good breeding requires years of experience, vast knowledge of the breed and understanding breed bloodlines. A good breeder also knows that Poodle care is one aspect of raising a Poodle that makes many would-be owners bow out.

Poodle care involves proper brushing, bathing, training, clipping and guidance of the dog, as this is essential in order for them to grow up happy and healthy. Proper nutrition is also a major part of Poodle care and it is important that the dog be fed the proper foods and gets plenty of fresh water as well.

Reputable breeders have the puppies of all litters examined and given the initial vaccinations by a licensed veterinarian before they go home with a new family. The vaccinations will need to be continued by the new owners and should be advised by the breeder the importance of finding a good veterinarian and regular vaccinations.

This includes rabies, parvovirus, distemper and hepatitis. In some cases vaccinations can cause the immune system to overact and so any owner should be sure to keep an eye on the dog for the few hours immediately following the vaccinations.

It takes a considerable amount of monetary investment to begin Poodle breeding. Purchasing well-bred parents or paying stud fees can cost thousands of dollars. Maintaining roomy clean kennels, nutritional food and quality veterinary care costs a lot of money. And selling the puppies may not be all that profitable, depending on market conditions. Poodle breeding is truly a labor of love for the breed and only for the most dedicated dog lovers.

If you are thinking of purchasing a Poodle puppy, stock your house with basic supplies before bringing it home. A dog bed, dog food, brushes, bones, collars and leashes, doggie shampoo and nail clippers a just a few of the possible supplies you should have on hand.

Caring for a Poodle means doing a few things in particular, and this also involves training. Poodles are very quick learners and easy to train, especially when compared to other breeds. A few of the supplies that a would-be Poodle owner should get include dog beds, dog bones, dog brushes, dog shampoo, dog dishes, dog ear cleaners, dog food and nail clippers. By having the right supplies and the resource of a reputable breeder to ask questions of, a new owner can be assured of raising a happy, healthy pet.
