Introduction

Poodles are, without a doubt, among the most popular dog breeds around the globe. The breed originated in Germany and has been around as early as the 14th century. Back then, most Poodles were trained to become water retrieving dogs, which is how the breed got its name. The term Poodle came from the German word pudel which means both “to splash” and “puddle”. The breed’s name perfectly highlights its water retrieving abilities. The Poodle comes in three different sizes, with the Standard Poodle being the largest kind. In the early 90s, Standard Poodles were usually used as water retrieving and hunting dogs. Nowadays, however, Standard Poodles are acquired and trained to become companions. Poodles are exceptionally smart and companionable; they easily get along with people, particularly children, and other dog breeds.

Standard Poodle Dog Name Considerations

Selecting the best fitting name for your Standard Poodle can be tough. Naturally, all dog owners would want a special name for their newly acquired furbabies. However, not all dog parents know what factors they should consider in naming their dogs.

For the Standard Poodle, there are a lot of factors to take into account that can greatly help you choose a name. One important factor is the origin of the breed. As previously mentioned, the Poodle originated in Germany, so it would be sensible to choose a name that is German, or at least relating to German culture. Although the breed originated in Germany, it is also recognized and widely famous in other countries, specifically France. As a matter of fact, the Poodle, called caniche in French, is often mistaken as the national dog of France. Bearing these in mind, it would also make sense to choose a French name or a name that can be directly connected to France.

Apart from the origin, another factor to consider is the breed’s personality. Standard Poodles are very smart, cheerful, friendly, very loving, brave, and versatile dogs. You can choose a name that defines and reflects your dog’s personality.

 The final and easiest factor to take into account is your dog’s coat color. Poodles can either be solid-colored or parti-colored. Generally, they come in different solid colors: black, white, beige, grey, red, and apricot. If you don’t want to dig much further, you can just choose a name based on the color of your Poodle’s coat.

Seattle, WA

His given name was very long and I couldn't call him Randy as that was my husband's name at the time. But Gus just seemed to fit him because he was a clown...
