The Pampered Life of Poodles
Poodles have the reputation of pampered princes and princesses. They’re often portrayed as sophisticated dogs with pristine white coats arranged into elaborate cuts and styles. You may see a lot of poodles in dog shows, prancing across the stage with their heads held high and perfectly manicured coats unbothered even by the wind.
In reality, poodles were given their distinctive haircut to enable swimming. Before they became pampered canines, they were commonly used as water dogs. They needed some of their fluffy furs to remain intact for protection against the weather, but they also needed to glide through water easily. That’s why they ended up with sections of their bodies shaved and other sections fluffed and wild.
Poodles often have boisterous, energetic personalities. They would rather play than sit politely on a pillow and pose for pictures. They’re also highly intelligent and most are easy to train, which is why they’re often seen prancing the stage in dog shows. It’s the combination of sharp brains and fun-loving attitudes that have turned so many dog owners into doting poodle lovers.

Most people know what a poodle is even if they haven’t had the pleasure of petting one in real life. That universal knowledge and appreciation make the poodle a great option for children and adults of all ages.
In addition to leisurely coloring sessions, you can use poodle coloring sheets to teach children about different breeds of dogs. Print a variety of dog coloring sheets and allow children to write the name of each dog at the top of each sheet before they begin coloring. They can either color each dog according to their own instinct or look at pictures of the dogs in real life to guide their color choices.
Whether you think of poodles as pampered princesses, dog show stars, or basic energetic pups with bold personalities, you’re going to have fun coloring them.
