The Poodle is known for her keen intelligence, excellent trainability, and, most notably, those signature curly locks. But there’s more to the Poodle than meets the eye (like, say, those expensive grooming bills). So, to Poodle or not to Poodle? That is the question. With an overview of the breed’s history, an exploration of all three varieties (Standard, Miniature, and Toy), and 8 pages of full-color photos detailing the colors available and tips and techniques for grooming, Poodles for Dummies is filled with all the meaty information and enlightening morsels you need to decide if this refined beauty is a good match for you. You’ll get answers to your most important questions, including: Which size Poodle is best for me? Which color? How do I know if a Poodle breeder is reputable? What are the pros and cons of shelters and rescue groups? What do I look for in choosing a healthy Poodle? How can I Poodle-proof my home and yard? What’s the best way to introduce my Poodle to kids and other pets? How often does my Poodle need grooming? No matter which size, color, or gender you own, Poodles are not a “wash ‘n’ wear” breed. But if you have the time, passion, and dedication to give her the training, exercise, and upkeep she needs, you and your curly companion will have a happy and rewarding life together.

Owning a small mammal as a pet can come with its own set of benefits but it can also come with its own set of difficulties and headaches. Some small mammals can have some very bad habits. It will be the responsibility of you, the owner, to curve these habits and find ways to redirect them. Some of these habits may include not using a litter box or chewing on wiring around the house. It is important to train any pet so that it understands what is expected of it from its new family. However, it is especially important to train smaller mammals, even more so if you plan on letting them out of their cages from time to time. Smaller mammals can be trained, despite many people’s believes. A lot of people feel as if smaller mammals are too small to be intelligent and therefore they believe they cannot be trained. This is nonsense and do not be one of the people who believe this. Smaller mammals may be small but they are still living mammals so therefore they may be trained. It will take time and effort but it is possible. There are different ways that you can train your small mammals and different animals may need different training approaches than others. It is important that you understand that the first method you try may not work. Do not give up hope and keep trying until you find something that works. Your hard work will surely pay in no time at all. Let Us Know What You Think!
