|The one thing all poodles share is their love for their people. They are NOT for ignoring or people gone a lot.
The Standard Poodle is an athlete and tends to be more aloof than the mini or toy ... but not the kind of aloof sight hounds have. Standard Poodles are freakishly smart so they can have an air of superiority which can be seen as being aloof. Poodles can figure out how to outsmart their owners if possible.
Poodles, in general, are highly sensitive. Harsh training methods will not work with this breed. Most important is that poodles are also highly adaptable.
The Toy Poodle isn't much different from their bigger siblings except for size. However, they are not for outdoor life, toddlers, or aggressive youngsters. Toy Poos can also be more "needy" than the mini or std.
Minis, in my experience, tend to be a little more "terrier like" in their temperaments than the standard or toy.
Any size, poodles are courageous, not wimpy...which can cause problems for the toy variety.
