About Standard Poodles

If you are looking to adopt a standard poodle, are you aware that:

* Poodles need to be groomed every 6–8 weeks.

* Poodle coats require frequent brushing between grooms.

* Poodle ears should be cleaned and plucked weekly.

* Standard poodles are susceptible to bloat.

* Have medium to strong prey drive.

* Have tendency to guard and/or protect.

* Get bored easily and tend to get into mischief.

* NEED some sort of mental stimulation in order to be happy.

* Cannot simply sit in the backyard and be ignored.

* Attitude toward people varies from friendly to politely reserved.

* Require brisk walks, jogging, swimming, and/or vigorous play sessions to keep them fit, satisfied, and calm indoors.

* Most are "soft" and sensitive dogs and will not respond well to harsh training methods.

* When young, standard poodles are active and, well, bouncy. Things around them can go flying, including small children.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out this adoption application.

If SPIN agrees to accept your application, the next step will be a meet and greet with you and the dog. We recommend that you bring the people and dogs that live in the home and/or will interact with the dog on a daily basis. If, after the meet and greet, you decide that you would like to proceed with the adoption process, we will schedule a home visit. Once these steps are completed, SPIN will assess the adoption applications received for the dog and determine the best home.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

To submit your form, click the "Submit" button below ONCE. After clicking ONCE, please wait for the submission confirmation box to appear. If the system is busy, this can be a bit slow to appear. After submission, you will also be sent an automatic confirmation email that your form was received.
