often get confused over poodle sizes, so letís see if we can help
straighten that out:
Poodles come in three basic sizes -- Toy, Miniature
and Standard. All three sizes share the same traits, including high
intelligence, fur growth patterns and color. Size is what separates the
poodles. Poodles are measured from their withers, the shoulder blades at
he base of a dog's neck.
Teacup poodle is an
unofficial size variation of the poodle. They are in reality, Toy
Poodles, but are smaller in size than the toy poodle standard. They tend
to be 8 inches and smaller, and under 6 pounds in weight. The teacup
poodle is just a name given to very small poodles by breeders, and
therefore, there is no universal standard for those who are breeding
- Toy poodles are 10-inches tall or less at the withers. (A
teacup would fall into this category, since most registries will not
recognize teacup as a size)
Miniature poodle is a poodle that is more than 10 inches at the
highest point on the shoulder, up to 15 inches.
Moyen or Klein
poodles falls in-between the miniature and standard
poodle size. It is a poodle that stands between 15 and 20 inches at the
highest point on the shoulder. Not an official size variation, however,
has become popular outside the USA.
Standard poodles is a poodle that is more than 15 inches at the highest
point on the shoulder.
