    Std poodle behavior

    Started to discuss Std Poodle behavior. I'm on my second and she is different than our first.
    Reina, our first , was an alpha whose greatest joy was running and jumping. Didn't retrieve.
    Lilly is laid back but her passion is ball retrieving. No obstacle can stand between she and her ball. She is a powerful girl who I perceive to have the characteristics of a hunter.

    There is a woman who walks a standard poodle here who is the same age as my pup .

    my pup loves him , my pup growls and acts fierce and is comfortable with him enough to feel brave ,

    and the poodle has the most stable and amazing temperament I have ever seen in a dog I can remember .

    he is so balanced and well behaved , he lays on his back and rolls in the grass while my pup acts with bravado and is not phased by it in the slightest .

    He is a sight when he comes trotting along too looking regal

    Mine is still only little, just over ten weeks but he's a retriever for certain. He also loves running about the yard and it's fun to watch. He has a tennis ball he adores, and one of my Wife's old slippers that she gave him, the rest of his toys are in house. He will be my Service Dog (I am deaf) once he's old enough to begin the training. For now, he's doing swimmingly with the basic puppy training things, and I'm socializing him VERY thoroughly which he's enjoying very much. So far, nothing seems to alarm nor frighten him and he definitely pays attention to the sounds going on about the estate so I'm greatly encouraged. Also, he's extremely cool. :) I mean, after all, he's a Standard Poodle!! Right?

    Your guy sounds like a dream. Who will be training him up for hearing dog service? I think he will make your life a lot easier once his training is over

    Well, he won't be getting DEEP training, we have help and electronics and cameras, etc for the house... I'm training him when he's old enough (Books, videos). The main thing: Alerting me when someone calls my name at the Dr, calls out "HEY!" on the streets, or (and this is the most important) WHEN I DROP THINGS. I've lost SO MANY THINGS simply because I don't hear them hit the ground. That's the biggest problem. I've lost glasses, sunglasses, KEYS, on and on. Those are the main issues with which he will assist.
    I want some independence. When I get restless, I don't want to have to be accompanied if I want to stroll off-grounds, or driven if I want to go to the corner for some tobacco, like I need a bodyguard or something. I HATE IT. It's TRULY humiliating. Marlowe will solve every bit of this for me.
    Above, I typed, "Books, videos". Actually the YouTube videos are fairly worthless to a deaf man (try turning OFF your volume and THEN turning on the captions, you'll understand what I mean). I can recommend a book, unsure if that's okay on this Forum, I'd have to change pages to re-read the Rules since I just joined. But the one book pretty much tells me all I need for the little bit he'll learn to SET ME FREE haha.
    Nice meeting you. Hope the post wasn't too long.

    I know your problems very well. My son is profoundly deaf. Unfortunately, he can't have a dog for a number of reasons, but if you can train your guy up, he will give you a lot more independence. Nobody understands deafness unless they are deaf themselves or have close links with someone who is deaf. Good luck and I hope when the time comes, the training goes well for you x

    CaroleC and Chris like this.
    I've every confidence. He's a Standard Poodle, after all. :) Not that I'm prejudiced or anything, haha :D
