Where dreams really do come true.


Poodles come in three sizes: Toy, Miniature and Standard.

According the the AKC standard, a Toy poodle is 10 inches and under at the shoulders. Within that range you will find tiny toy and teacup, although all are considered toys.

Miniature poodles are above 10 inches and below 15 inches. Many toy poodles will go just a little over size and end up falling in the small miniature range even though they are of toy breeding. Many, many toys in the show ring actually fall in this category. A true miniature is closer to the top end of this scale.

Standard poodles are any poodle over 15 inches at the shoulder. Again, there is a size range in standards, ranging anywhere from just over 15 inches to the very large standards, nicknamed Royal Standards who are amost 30 inches at the shoulder.

The very tiny toys are fragile and even though they are cute, they are really not the best dogs for small children. The break when dropped and cannot stand up to the rough play of a toddler. If you have a small child, please consider a more substantial poodle like a large toy or miniature.
