In addition to the size, the Miniature Poodle is different from varieties like the Standard and Toy Poodles when it comes to personality traits. They are great dogs for dog lovers who want a lively and active companion.
Miniature Poodles are also really ideal for family setups, especially with adequate socialization. Here is a bit more on what you can expect from these doggies in terms of personality.
Miniature Poodles can be very standoffish and withdrawn, especially when interacting with strangers. While they are not as aloof as Standard Poodles, they definitely need early socialization to teach them how to be friendly and comfortable around strangers.
Miniature Poodles are arguably the most active of the Poodle dog breeds. Their size makes them more agile than Standard Poodles while their high energy levels makes them more active than Toy Poodles.
This makes Miniature Poodles awesome companions for outdoorsy dog owners.
Mini Poodles may be aloof but at least they are not aggressive to strangers despite their mistrust. In contrast, these dogs are very gentle especially with children which is what makes them worth considering as family pets.
Confident And Independent
One of the main differences between a Miniature Poodle and a Toy Poodle is the fact that Miniature Poodles are very confident. They are also a lot more independent and can comfortably entertain themselves, thereby requiring less or no supervision if you have to be away from your home for a while.
Finally, you have the intelligence of the Miniature Poodle to look forward especially when it comes to training. However, they can sometimes turn stubborn and get distracted especially if your training session is very long.
