Standard Poodles are perfect for my family. They’re hypoallergenic so that they don’t trigger Ray or Dave’s allergies. The girls are super smart. Phaedra can open drawers in my nightstands, which is disconcerting. Nyx is such a good emotional support companion, too. She’s such a compassionate dog.
People do often ask me why I don’t groom my standard poodle girls Phaedra & Nyx myself. As I mention in the video, I suck at it. I tried grooming Phaedra for several years but I never got the hang of scissoring the head, tail, and poms perfectly round. It drove me nuts.
Oh! Since I’ve been asked this a lot, my standard poodle girls love to be groomed. They enjoy the attention and the whole process, aside from the feet. I don’t know any dog that likes to get their feet groomed. I think that’s one of the many reasons you see standard poodles featured in creative grooming. Poodles love the attention and their hair is a great canvas for art. The few times I’ve allowed creative grooming to be done on Phaedra, she loved it. She always prances after she’s been groomed because she knows she’s gorgeous.
