  1. My wife and I have been thinking about getting a dog for some time now, and we had been thinking about buying a poodle. I was happy to read that poodles are generally intelligent dogs, which would make teaching it how to do tricks pretty easy. My wife is also allergic to most dogs, but have heard that poodles are hypoallergenic. I think it would be a perfect fit for our family! Thanks for your post!
