Poodle Breed Of Dog
 

Poodle Dogs

The Poodle has become a favorite in many countries.

This dog appeared so early that its land of origin is still in question.

It is said that the Poodle originated in Germany, where it is known as the Pudel or Canis Familiaris Aquatius. For many years though, it has been regarded as the national dog of France, where it is commonly used as a retriever as well as a traveling-circus trick dog.

The Poodle was most likely a water retriever. It was used so often as a retriever that portions of its coat were clipped to help his progress in swimming. From that came the custom of clipping in the manner that we so commonly see. This clipping seem to make the Poodles style and appearance more appealing to his French sponsors and everyone who saw the dog.

Although the Standard Poodles claim to being the oldest of the dog varieties, there is proof that the smaller types came about not too long after the breed took on the general type by which it is recognized today.
