Everyone who wants to enjoy living with a dog needs to teach her some basic manners. Not unlike children, dogs need to have limits set and need to be taught what behavior is acceptable and what is not. Poodles crave human companionship, so they're always around, which gives you continual opportunities to teach manners. Remember to keep your relationship with your poodle positive and to treat her with respect. Soon you'll have a perfectly companionable canine family member.
