Who says Poodles are not a working breed?

These three are obviously busy keeping up with the landscaping in the Trebert's yard! 
Seriously, Poodles excel at all types of dog sports, including but not limited to obedience, rally, tracking, agility and hunting. Keep in mind that they were originally developed to be water retrievers, so a Poodle jumping into the water to retrieve a duck is actually work they were bred to do.  Many Standard Poodles love to do any kind of work their owner wants them to do...including posing for photos like this one, or even acting in the movies.  Some of the most amazing work I've ever seen  Poodles do involves being trained for behaviors that are put together for Poodle movies. You can read about this, see movie star Poodles owned by Charlene and Glenn Dunlap and read about their film work, even see clips of them performing, on Charlene's website at  

Many thanks to Donna Trebert for sharing this wonderful tractor photo with us!


  1. This is great! I hate when people think my standard poodle is just full of fluff! She's super smart and I am working on training her to be a therapy dog :)
