Miniature Poodle breed information

 Poodles were originally bred in Germany for hunting. While its larger sibling, the Standard Poodle, was used for hunting game and waterfowl, the smaller version started as a hunter of truffles. The Miniature Poodle excelled at scenting and digging up this prized fungus.  

Today, the Miniature Poodle is kept as a family companion dog and can often be seen riding in the handbags of the rich and famous. Poodles are highly intelligent, ranked second only to the Border Collie, and take well to obedience training. At 10 to 15 inches high, they make the perfect pet for apartment dwellers, and their low-allergen hair coat allows them to top the list of breeds good for those who suffer from allergies.

Although they're super-smart, Miniature Poodles are still prone to a number of hereditary and congenital conditions that can adversely affect their health – not to mention your budget. Some of the conditions and illnesses Miniature Poodles are prone to include heart disease such as mitral valve disease; knee problems such as medial patellar luxation; brain conditions such as cerebellar abiotrophy; skin issues such as atopy; skeletal problems such as intervertebral disc disease; and respiration problems such as tracheal collapse.

Thankfully, Petplan pet insurance covers all hereditary and chronic conditions as standard. Which means if your Mini Poo inherits his dad’s bad heart or his mom’s weak knees, you’re covered.
