Poodles are known to be solid colored dogs, and these are actually a popular choice among breeders. They usually come in solid colors like black, white, red, apricot, brown, silver, grey, silver-beige and even some that come with unique spots or marks. Yet, there are also poodles that come with a mix of different colors which are identified as mismark, tuxedo and parti-colored poodles and these are usually special breeds that are now being recognized in dog shows and exhibitions and even canine registries. It is important, however, as a breeder to know and identify these types of dogs and which of these are recognized in significant dog registries.
These poodles are also known as abstract poodles by a few breeders. A mismark poodle is usually mistaken to be parti-colored or tuxedo poodles because of their similarities. But, mismark poodles are usually determined by less than 50% of their fur to be white while the rest are other solid colors. In short, majority of their coat is solid and with slight white patches. It is important for breeders to identify them as mismark and not parti-colored or tuxedo poodles.
These types of poodles usually have special markings in some parts of their body which resembles a tuxedo. If you are breeding these species of dogs, the markings are usually seen to be a white colored belly. Some even have a remarkable white bib over its chest that wraps around the dog’s neck, while some have a white colored coating that runs from the belly to its limbs and paws, and often a darker colored large patch over its body which does not have to be completely black. The dark colors can be dark blue and white or red and white.
These type of poodles have been known to history to be the original color of poodles. These poodles have a larger area of their body to be covered with a white base coat and the remaining patches of random solid color, and is black, which surrounds their body. Some spots of black color may even appear on their paws and legs. When breeding, it is important to remember that to get a parti-colored poodle; two parti-colored dogs should be paired and mated to get the expected results. It is often a joy for most breeders because of the lovely colored patterns that these poodles possess. Some partis, however, may have small spots which are black as expected.
It is necessary for any dog breeder to be aware of the kinds of health issues that their dogs may encounter. Like any other dogs, poodles have a significant list of health concerns that have since been reported in dog registries. Some of these major health concerns include epilepsy, Addison’s disease, thyroid, renal diseases and even cancer. Yes, even poodles are susceptible to these kinds of conditions, so it is best to take good care of your dogs and make sure that their medical records are up to date. This means that regular vet visits should be scheduled and accomplished for the poodle, with complete vaccines and relevant shots. A minor issue that is common to poodles is the ear infection. This is because poodle fur is so thick around the head and ears and they rarely shed that it’s easy for bacteria to grow and dwell inside. That’s why regular professional grooming should always be done for especially for show poodles which will require investment in time and money for most breeders. Poodles can also contract eye problems like cataracts because of the density of their fur around their face and head.
Since poodles are intelligent creatures, training is not a challenging task for most breeders. They are quick to understand what is expected of them. Poodles are companion dogs, and they usually need a right amount of exercise and outdoor activities. They often need companionship and would usually get rowdy when left alone indoors for a long time. Unlike other toy dogs, poodles enjoy being outdoors and active with their fellow humans. There is usually a lesser effort for breeders because of the dog’s playful nature and skillful abilities.
