Poodle Puppies

Getting a new puppy can be very exciting, especially if you’re considering Poodle puppies. These little fluff balls are super cute, energetic, and need a lot of attention. Along with the cuteness comes a lot of work and it is wise to prepare yourself to have your hands full. Getting prepared and reading up in advance are key.

I know it can get quite stressful when choosing a puppy, especially since there are so many colors and size options when it comes to Poodle puppies.

What To Look Out For When Choosing Between Poodle Puppies

Poodles come in three sizes and multiple colors. You will have to decide what you want in a dog before you start looking. Poodles are also differently priced depending on if you want a show dog or only a pet.

1. Find A Reputable Breeder

Once you’ve decided what you’re looking for in a poodle puppy, it is time to decide on a breeder. Make sure to choose a breeder with a good reputation that cares for their dogs. You can consult the American Kennel Club‘s breeders list for reputable Poodle breeders.

2. Visit The Poodle Puppies

Make sure to visit the breeder to inspect the living situation of the Poodle puppies, meet the parents and ask lots of questions. A good breeder will also ask you questions and help you select the best pup for you from the bunch.

3. Ask Health Questions

Ask for the health screening of the puppy parents. Make sure that the puppies have received their first vaccination at 6 weeks and have been treated for parasites. All puppies in the litter should appear healthy.

4. Interact With The Poodle Puppies

The puppies should be outgoing, energetic, have clear eyes and shiny coats. Make sure to evaluate personality and spend some time around the parents to learn more about what your pup will grow up to be.

5. Don’t feel Forced To Choose

A breeder that cares will never force you to immediately take a puppy. They will give you time to decide and references from other owners if you require another’s input.

Choosing a puppy can be stressful so here is a video that explains a little more on the subject:
