Moyen Poodles are usually between 15 and 20 inches tall at the shoulder, while Standard Poodles can be up to 27 inches tall. Moyen Poodles also tend to have a bit more energy than Standard Poodles. Are Moyen Poodles good family dogs? Yes, Moyen Poodles make great family dogs. Moyens are a medium-sized Poodle; between a miniature and standard. They can grow from 15 pounds up to 35 pounds, on the larger side. Moyens are recognized internationally, but not by most Kennel Club associations, and therefore don’t meet competition standards in many places. They’re an intelligent and hearty breed that make them excellent service dogs and companions.
