Did You Know?

The fact that Poodles have been featured in royal artwork since the 1500s is probably part of the reason many think they’re a French breed. But they’re actually not.

Instead, these smart and placid dogs are shrouded in mystery when it comes to their origin. Some experts say they originated in Central Europe or Russia, while others cite Spain or Portugal.

Although they’re thought of as ornamental lap dogs, they are technically gun dogs with an excellent reputation for bird hunting and water retrieval. Their name has its roots in an old German word meaning ‘to splash about’ – a reference to their fondness for water.

The miniature Poodle was developed in the 1700s, long after the standard version was around. Faithful and devoted, it’s small wonder they became popular too.
