Otherwise notable is this breed's keen sense for instinctual behavior. In particular, marking and hunting drives
are more readily observable than in most other breeds. Even Toys will point birds. Classified as highly energetic,
poodles can also get bored fairly easily and have been known to get creative about finding mischief. Poodles
like to be in the center of things and are easily trained to do astonishing tricks involving both brains and agility.
They have performed in circuses for centuries, beginning in Europe, and have been part of the Ringling Circus
in its various forms from its inception. The Grimaldis, the famous British clowns Kenneth and Audrey Austin,
"developed a stronger circus act" with a clever poodle named 'Twinkle,' the success of which allowed them to
continue performing even as octogenarians."

Poodles are extremely people-oriented dogs and generally eager to please. Standard poodles in particular tend
to be good with children. Poodles are adaptable and easy to train, but sometimes their intelligence can make
them obstinate and stubborn. Like most dogs, they appreciate daily exercise, such as a walk or a play session.
Most are fairly agile and athletic.

Toy poodles will play ball and love to fetch. Play time is vital, but one must be sure that they get plenty of rest
following long play periods and that fresh water is available at all times.

Poodles are very easy to housebreak. Whether going outside or being trained on a pad, they learn quickly
where to defecate. They are still animals, however, and they need time to understand what is desired of them. It
may take a while, but poodles are quite smart and learn more quickly than most dogs.
