About Giant Poodles

Clad in an iconic curly coat, the Giant Poodles are just like any other poodles only that they are way larger than ordinary. Giant Poodles belong to the standard kind which is the tallest among all the poodle varieties. 

The common stereotype about poodles is that they are fancy, diva-like and high-maintenance dog. However, there’s more to giant poodles than meets the eye. 

They are more than just an icon of elegance and luxury, beaming with confidence, and pride in the canine world. Giant Poodles are affectionate, loyal, and whip-smart making them greatly prized as one of the best companion dogs in the world.

Pooch Size

The American Kennel Club categorizes poodles into three size variants — Toy, Miniature, and Standard. Dog sizes are categorized by breed registries by their height rather than how much they weigh. Standard poodles stand 15 to 21 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh 45 to 65 pounds making them the largest kind compared to the Toy and Miniature which are the small and mid-sized poodles.

Giant Poodles, often advertised as “Royal Poodles”, are simply Standard poodles that are bigger than the average. They can stand to an incredible height of 20-28 inches at the shoulder and a whopping weight of 80 to 90 pounds which is comparable to that of the Bernese mountain dog. 

Standard poodles are sexually dimorphic with males being noticeably larger than the females. 

Poodle Colors

Theoretically, all poodles regardless of size are scaled replicas of one another. They are known for their iconic flamboyant curly groom and surprisingly low-shedding coat. The coat is a poodle’s crowning glory. When it comes to choosing which colored poodle to breed or own, be notified of the range of colors that will leave you overwhelmed with options.

Poodles are a breed that comes in many shades, shapes, and sizes. They go through various stages of “clearing” or color changes before poodles achieve their final color as they reach maturity —from solid color, parti-colors, phantom, mis-mark, and more.

Solid color

Most poodles have solid colors with black as the most common. They also come in many unique solid colors —- white, apricot, blue (faded black), brown, cafe au lait (shiny light tan), cream, silver, silver beige, red (amber), and gray. 

Parti-color 

A parti-colored poodle is one that has white as a primary coat with more than 50% irregular patches from a secondary color (black, silver, beige, cream, red, apricot, etc.) scattered anywhere on the dog. What makes parti poodles interesting is that their coloration is unique. You’ll never know what you’ll get. 

Mis-mark 

A mis-mark, opposite to parti-colored poodles, has the main coat of any other poodle color with less than 50% of white fur that spread around the chin, chest, neck, paws, and tip of the dog’s tail. 

Phantom 

Preferred by many poodle owners, these colored poodles have a mixture of 2 colors in which the dogs have specific markings they are born with on a solid background. 

Giant Poodle Temperament

Giant poodles are one of the smartest and most trainable breeds in the world — well, poodles in general. When it comes to temperament, poodles may exhibit some differences in personality which can be tracked down to their heritage. 

Standard poodles were the first type of poodles to be bred mostly to do work so they have to be composed and focused to do work in the field. They are sharp and pick up things easily. Standard poodles including the giant ones are energetic yet elegant and obedient. They are protective but not aggressive, they make great watchdogs. 

Despite their diva-like dog reputation due to their poise, poodles are active and fun-loving dogs. They are affectionate and friendly with their families and other dogs. As long as they are properly trained with positive reinforcements, poodles will be able to know how to behave and will know its place in the family. 

History of Giant Poodles

The origin of giant poodles isn’t exactly known up to date. However, the standard poodle to which variety it belongs was defined in the 16th century which speaks for the breed’s longstanding history as a man’s great animal companion. There are a lot of theories as to where its ancestry came from. 

Some experts believe that standard poodles originated from Germany where it is called pudel or pudelin which means “to splash in the water” in reference to the poodle’s love for water since they are originally raised as water retrievers. On another side,  others believe they originated from France which is more reliable considering that the poodle is the country’s national dog.

Today’s poodles are the epitome of leisure and luxury. However, these dogs are originally bred to do real work. It was in the 1400s that the Miniature and Toy poodles emerged as breeders started to breed smaller versions of poodles. 

The standard poodles were used by Germans as fish hunters while the French use them for duck hunting. On the other hand, the miniatures were also used for hunting  truffles in the woods. The toy poodles, which are of the smallest kind were bred mainly to serve as companions for the Parisian bourgeoisie.
