Another highly intelligent breed is the Poodle. Unlike their stereotypical portrayal, they are playful, amusing and very easy to train. Being quick learners, they excel at nearly any task or trick and are easy to housebreak simply by putting a leash on and showing them the door. Since they have small stomachs, its recommended to feed them three small meals per day. They enjoy many activities such as tracking, swimming and agility and obedience training. Poodles come in three sizes; toy, miniature and standard. If well cared for, most will live well into their teens. Brushing and grooming weekly is a requirement, but can also be a fun way to bond with your wonderful companion. They require regular exercise, but can adapt to virtually any living environment. They are very people-oriented, so being part of the family makes for a very happy pooch.
