Poodles are very intelligent breeds who take very well to activities like agility training, dog shows, and tracking. If you feel that one could say Poodles were born for those particular types of activities, you'd be right as rain; Poodles were, in fact, initially bred for the express purpose of hunting people or other animals as well as tracking individuals and objects through the use of its exceptional sense of smell. Poodles were also some of the first dogs to be used by the United States military, with a number of Poodles having served in World War I and World War II respectively.
Poodles are quite sophisticated dogs but they also love to play and will mix and mingle with any other breed of dog, if given the chance. Some Poodles love getting a chance to strut their stuff at dog shows and pageants more than others, while some love getting down and dirty while tracking a target. Either way, Poodles can make excellent pets if they're being cared for by an experienced and loving caretaker. Whether you're caring for a Miniature Poodle, a Toy Poodle, or a "classic" Poodle, as some dog enthusiast have taken to calling them, always to strive to help your dog be the best they can be.
