History of the breed (Origin)
There is no exact information about the origin of the breed. It is highly probable that these dogs, originally used both for guarding and grazing herds, and as arms (for retrieving game from the surface of the water), came to France more than 500 years ago. It is possible that breeders even then began to strive to reduce the size of dogs. The result of their selection was the emergence of the standard of the modern breed of Toy Poodles.
The French breed name “caniche” (poodle) comes from the French word “cane” – duck. In other countries, the breed is called a derivative of the word barboter (to splash). The poodle was originally used to hunt waterfowl. It originates from barbet and has retained many of its characteristics. Since 1743, the name “lacaniche” (poodle) appeared. Subsequently, the barbet and the poodle as breeds were separated. Breeders made great efforts to obtain the original breed and uniform color. The poodle became very popular as a companion dog due to its friendliness, cheerfulness and loyal character and also thanks to four sizes and a variety of colors that anyone can choose according to their preferences.
