THE MOST INTELLIGENT POODLE

THE MOST INTELLIGENT POODLE.


The poodle is generally recognized as the most intelligent of all members of the canine breed. There is a general belief that he is a fop, whose time is largely occupied with personal beautification, and that he needs a great deal of individual attention when it comes to his grooming. It may be true that in order to keep it in good order and cleanliness, its owner needs to give it more consideration than is necessary in the case of many breeds; but in other respects he gives very little trouble, and all who are attached to him are consistent in their opinion that there is no such intensely interesting and responsive dog as a companion. His qualities of wit and his keen sense of reasoning are indeed so great that there is something almost human in his attractiveness and dedication. His aptitude for learning is never denied, and there are many stories told of his wonderful talent and versatility.


He didn't just stand out as a showman dog. He is something more than a bench of cabins, trained to walk a tightrope and stand on his head. He is a fan of tricks, but it is his brain vigilance that sets him apart from other animals.


The abundant and long coat of this dog has the peculiarity that if it is not constantly brushed, it twists into small cords which increase in length as new hair grows and clings to it. The old un-tapered hair and new growth entwined together thus become separate ropes like ropes. Eventually, if these cords are not cut short, or accidentally torn off, they drag along the ground and thus prevent the poor animal from moving with any degree of comfort or freedom.


Corded Poodles are very showy and, due to the remarkable appearance of the coat, attract a lot of public attention when displayed at exhibitions; but they have lost popularity among most of the hobbyists, and have become few in number due to the obvious fact that they cannot be made into pets or kept in the home. The reason is that the coat needs to be oiled from time to time to keep the cords flexible and prevent them from breaking, and of course, since their coat cannot be brushed, the only way to keep the strings clean dog. is to wash it, which with a corded poodle is a long and laborious process. Additionally, the coat takes hours to dry out, and unless the newly washed dog is kept in a warm room, there is a high risk of catching a cold. The result is that cord poodles' coats are almost invariably dirty and a little smelly.
