Toy Poodles are Extremely Intelligent and Can be Trained to do Incredible Things! [VIDEO]

If you’ve taken the time to read through the Scarlet’s Fancy website in the past, you’ll notice how we mentioned that poodles are a particularly intelligent breed. While some other dogs may take years to properly train, poodles are able to pick up on things fairly easily and can be trained, not only with the basics, but to do some remarkable tricks as well.

I know what you’re thinking: every breeder will come up with ways to tell you that their breed is the best in one way or another. While I’m not technically claiming that toy poodles are the best breed, (that’s for you to decide!) I can understand your hesitation. That’s why when I come across cool ways to show how truly intelligent and fun-loving these pups are, I obviously jump at the chance! This time, it comes in the form of an extremely entertaining toy poodle named Inji, who so obviously demonstrates how incredible and highly responsive the breed can be.

Check out the unbelievable video below and see for yourself!

Miniature and Toy Poodles are the Ideal Choice for Apartment Living

For those who consider themselves to be “dog people”, apartment hunting can be pretty terrible. You want that companionship so badly, but landlord after landlord tells you that they have a no dog policy. What are you supposed to do? Keep looking. While they are few and far between, there are plenty of quality apartment complexes that allow renters to have a small to medium-sized dog, and we know the perfect pup to fit the bill.

According to, miniature and toy poodles are among 13 dog breeds that are most ideal for apartment living. Being so small, these two particular types of poodles do very well in smaller spaces, not needing much room to get the exercise that they need. Additionally, as an extremely intelligent breed in general, poodles are easy to train, so you don’t have to worry too much about your pet making a mess or having accidents indoors as much as you might with another breed.

Another great advantage to living in a smaller space with a miniature or toy poodle is the fact that you won’t be overtaken by a coating of dog hair on every surface. In a smaller space, a build-up of dog hair can become much more noticeable as compared to what you might experience in a larger home. Fortunately for apartment dwellers, the poodle breed does not shred. However, you should still make regular trips to the groomers for a trim to maintain the good health of your pet’s fur, making the act of dealing with your poodle’s coat both maintenance- and stress-free.

For more information about bringing a miniature or toy-sized poodle home to your apartment, please feel free to contact Scarlet’s Fancy today. We’d be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about this particular breed.
