Poodles are known to be loyal, active, alert, and trainable. They also have the tendency to form a special bond with family members and get clingy, too. They wouldn’t be called ‘velcro’ dog breeds for nothing.
In case you fail to train your pooch on how to deal with separation anxiety, expect your Black Poodle to howl, bark, and do unwanted behaviors like peeing inside your home.
Poodles have the tendency to be territorial, too. Thus, these dogs can act out if they see unfamiliar faces. Yes, they are affectionate but it takes time for Black Poodles to warm up to new people.
Are Black Poodles Good With Kids?
If you have kids at home, it is best to care for a standard sized Black Poodle. They are more tolerant and gentle to kids.
On the other hand, both the miniature and the toy Poodles are high-strung. Yes, these smaller dogs are friendly to children but due to their small sizes, children may inadvertently hurt them. If this happens, dogs may act defensively and may nip the children.
Are Black Poodles Stubborn?
Yes, if Black Poodles are not properly socialized and trained at a young age, they can exhibit stubborn behaviors. Remember that Poodles are very intelligent and they have a mind of their own.
The problem is, at times, Black Poodles think that they are in charge and begin to act like the ‘boss’. This kind of thinking leads to stubborn and destructive behaviors.
But, with constant mental and physical stimulation, you’d successfully curb the aggressive tendencies.
