Choosing a Poodle as Your Emotional Support Dog

Emotional support animals can provide comfort and companionship to their owner. According to Emotional Support Animal Doctors, people diagnosed with anxiety, depression, and PTSD qualify for emotional support animals. To obtain a support animal, first, you will need a letter written by a mental health professional.

There are many different dog breeds that can make a great emotional support animal. One of the most popular breeds is poodles! Poodles have been well known for being show dogs but this animal has much more to offer than fancy tricks! Here are some reasons why poodles make excellent emotional support animals:

  • Obedience and Loyalty– Poodles are very obedient which can make it easier during training for emotional support. They are also highly intelligent and have a great memory.
  • Hypoallergenic– Because poodles don’t shed, they are perfect for people with allergies.
  • Size– Most people choose smaller dog breeds because it is easier to travel with them. Toy poodles typically weigh between 5-8 lbs which makes them the perfect size to take to most places.
  • Life span– Toy poodles have an average life span of about 16 years. They are one of the dog breeds that live the longest which will give you the most time with your puppy.

Poodles enjoy lots of physical activity and mentally stimulating games. This is great for the health of both you and your dog.

It is important when looking for a dog to find reputable breeders or adoption agencies. Avoid puppy mills as they have been known for neglecting animals and raising them in unsafe conditions.

Scarlet’s Fancy Poodles breeds miniature poodles, toy poodles, and teacup poodles. As  licensed and experienced dog breeders our family has raised poodles for 60 years.

Plus, celebrating your poodle’s birthday is the perfect excuse to spoil them so we are definitely in full support.

Celebrating Your Poodle on their Birthday

Consider Treats and Toys

Your red poodle probably has a lot of toys already, but how many of those toys do they actually play with? Consider getting them something new! Bark Box is made specifically for dogs so they receive unique gifts including toys, treats, and chews each month.

Looking to gift an extra special treat instead? Bake some homemade dog treats! Homemade dog treats are typically healthier compared to store bought treats, so you can feel good about what your poodle is snacking on.

Treat Them to a Spa Day

Continue spoiling your puppy with an extra special bubble bath! A bubble shampoo and conditioner will illuminate their inner royalty and keep them shining for days after.

Is your tub occupied?  Don’t worry! Doggie spas exist all over the United States. From spa baths, brush outs, ear cleaning, self-grooming and more, treat your red poodle to a pamper package you’ll envy!

Give Back to Other Dogs

While your own dog comes first, we can’t forget about the many dogs that likely won’t have their birthday celebrated any time soon.  Visit a local shelter and see how you might be able to donate to the shelter in your dog’s name. Most shelters need treats, toys, food, bath products, and more. Consider collecting donations and gifting them to a shelter in need.

Help Your Poodles Make the Most of Winter

Red Poodle PuppyDon’t let winter get you or your red poodle down! It might be too cold to get outside for an extended amount of time, for both you and your dog, but that doesn’t mean all is lost!

Consider the wintertime a perfect opportunity to bond with your beloved poodle.

Keep Them Moving

It is important to remember that exercise is not exclusively meant for the outdoors. Encourage your red poodle to run around inside as well so you can get a few minutes of exercise in too!  Try adding another friend into the mix and set up a puppy play date!  The more the merrier, especially when it comes to dogs.

If the weather seems reasonable and you do plan to spend some time outside, just keep track of how long you’ve been outside. Consider purchasing boots and a jacket for your poodle to protect them from the elements.

Practice Playfulness

Poodles enjoy all sorts of games, that luckily, can easily be played in side. Games such as hide and seek and tug of war can be played right from the comfort of your own home.  Interactive games will keep their attention sharp and help to improve obedience.  Consider motivating with healthy treats! Poodles love a challenge, especially when they know a reward is waiting for a job well done.

Stay Healthy and Happy

If you’re cooped up inside, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to train your red poodle puppy.  If your puppy is not quite comfortable with dental care, combing, or bathing, work on their tolerance. Get them used to different aspects of grooming, an important part of poodle pet care.

Keeping your poodle healthy and happy is what’s most important.  Looking for a poodle to add into your home? Contact Scarlet’s Fancy Poodles today.
