Poodle: Care They Needed

The poodle is an intelligent, caring, and active breed best known for its affectionate behavior. They’re also elegant and carry themselves gracefully. We’ve seen this in the beloved toy and miniature poodles we care for. Trust us – they love being around people and are at their best when interacting with others!

However, interaction is just the tip of the iceberg for poodle care. There are other parts of their lives that need supervision to keep them happy and healthy. Read on to learn more about a poodle’s proper care, as well as how this can be done!

Give Your Poodle Care Through Proper Nutrition And Exercise

Your poodle needs good nutrition to stay physically and mentally healthy. Give poodles high-grade dog food with meat as the first ingredient. Make their food is as free of chemicals, additives, and other artificial substances as possible.

Feed puppies around four times a day when they’re young. Feeding them several small meals a day keeps them from developing painful bloating. But as they get older, this frequency can be reduced to twice a day.

Exercise your poodle every day with brisk walking or some playtime. However, make sure they get enough rest afterwards. This helps them recover and prevents injuries. Give your poodle plenty of fresh water as well to keep them nice and hydrated.

Take Time To Socialize With Your Poodle Puppy

Socialize with your puppy so it develops a friendlier disposition and good behavior – the earlier, the better. A poodle that isn’t properly socialized (especially at a young age) tends to learn negative behaviors like aggression, excessive barking and howling, and begging for human food.

Though poodles are very smart and prized for their trainability, obedience and good behavior should start as early as possible. Make it a point to reinforce good behavior with treats, petting, and praise.

Keep Your Poodle Well-Groomed

Poodles have dense, hypoallergenic fur coats. These need clipping every six to eight weeks. They shed low levels of dander, but they need to be brushed for several hours. Brushing prevents tangled and matted fur.

Take Your Poodle To The Vet

Schedule regular check-ups for your poodle with a friendly veterinarian. After an initial check-up, your vet may give more advice for pet care, such as giving vitamin supplements. Your vet will also schedule regular deworming and vaccinations.

Vaccinations can help your poodle from developing painful or even fatal conditions like parvovirus, distemper, and rabies. After their initial series of vaccinations, they’ll have an extra layer of protection against harmful viruses. Keep in mind that vaccinations also need yearly boosters so your poodle’s immunity is in tip-top shape!
