TThe Standard Poodle is a gundog
and originally used in France and Germany as a retriever of waterfowl.
To help the dog in the water the hunters clipped off the coat around
it's hindquarters, and left the cheat coat on for warmth, the coat
around the leg joints was protection against injury. This is where
the traditional clip comes from. They are a very intelligent dog
and always ready for fun and play. They love to be apart of the
family and thrive on the human company.
