Coat

The Poodle's coat is very characteristic. Its fur is curly and soft, full and thick. The colors are the most varied and can be white, black, brown, gray, apricot and reddish fawn. Generally, the color of the puppies remains the same when the animal becomes an adult, and can only lighten a little. They do not shed and maintenance requires brushing only once a week, to avoid the formation of knots (which are very painful and can create a real tangle in a few days).

Taking Care of a Poodle

Poodle dogs are excellent companions and do not require unusual care. They adapt easily to any environment, including apartments. That's why it's a great breed for those who live in the city. They need moderate exercise, but be sure to take them outside to smell and meet other dogs. Socialization is very important. The diet must be balanced as weight gain is common in this breed and can harm the animal's health in several ways. They don't like to be alone and can develop anxiety and become destructive if they go too long without their guardian's presence. If your Poodle is going to be alone for long periods, consider having two furry friends so they can keep each other company.
