    Book details

The Poodle is known for her keen intelligence, excellent trainability, and, most notably, those signature curly locks. But theres more to the Poodle than meets the eye (like, say, those expensive grooming bills). So, to Poodle or not to Poodle? That is the question.

With an overview of the breeds history, an exploration of all three varieties (Standard, Miniature, and Toy), and 8 pages of full–color photos detailing the colors available and tips and techniques for grooming, Poodles for Dummies is filled with all the meaty information and enlightening morsels you need to decide if this refined beauty is a good match for you. Youll get answers to your most important questions, including:

  • Which size Poodle is best for me? Which color?
  • How do I know if a Poodle breeder is reputable?
  • What are the pros and cons of shelters and rescue groups?
  • What do I look for in choosing a healthy Poodle?
  • How can I Poodle–proof my home and yard?
  • Whats the best way to introduce my Poodle to kids and other pets?
  • How often does my Poodle need grooming?

No matter which size, color, or gender you own, Poodles are not awashnwearbreed. But if you have the time, passion, and dedication to give her the training, exercise, and upkeep she needs, you and your curly companion will have a happy and rewarding life together.

    I was looking for something very specifically about poodles, as I already own a couple of books about dog care and training. Unfortunately lots of the info in this book is quite general (how to buy a puppy etc), apart from the grooming section. Also very American in it's focus.

    On the last page before the index, you'll find THIS pretty little gem:"Succumb to Your Last Resort: Turn Your Poodle Loose"If you don't have room in your car, you're running out of time, and you can't find anyone to care for your poodle, you may have to leave him. Don't shut him in the house, with no way to escape. Turn him loose and give him a fighting chance. However, you should play ahead so this drastic measure is never necessary."In other words, Ewing is recommending that you should DUMP your dog when you get bored of it.The only reason I'm not dumping this book is because there might - if I can steel myself to look through its pages - be some useful information.

    Now I have bought several other books on Poodles. Compared to all the others this is really rubbish. Also it is only for U.S readers with lots of referance to U.S organisations so no good for UK or anywhere else.

    A wonderful explanatory guide for anyone who is interested in this marvellous breed. Great advice on every aspect of the breed.

    This was a present for my cousin - she loved it and said it was full of practical down to earth advice.
