Owning a poodle comes with definite responsibility. The owner must be prepared to accept the costs of many aspects of dog care, including training, grooming, walking and feeding. The owner should show special interest in proper health of the poodle.
As an owner, you have to deal with your poodle problems. The most common behavioral problems are barking, biting, scratching, becoming aggressive, chasing and chewing. These poodle problems can be eliminated when you start training them right from the day one. Aggressiveness can be avoided in a poodle by properly training it to accept your commands. You must be in control of feeding and walking times. If you want to stop unwanted barking of your poodle then make sure that all of your pet's needs are fully met each day. Do not reward it with a positive attention when it is barking unnecessarily.
Biting and chewing are the most common poodle problems which can be avoided by redirecting it from the beginning, like providing a toy or a bone to chew or bite. Most of them will easily learn once taught. Scratching can be avoided by involving a poodle in plenty of exercises or try adding a non-harmful spray that contains bitter apple to its favorite spot to lick.
