The word hypoallergenic, when referring to a dog, is also a misconception; all dogs shed.

Poodles shed hair in minimal amounts, and also release dander, but are not as likely to trigger allergies as much as many other breeds.

Poodles of all sizes (toy, miniature, and standard) can do well in apartments. These dogs are intelligent and have moderate to high energy levels.

Dogs naturally lose old or damaged hair by shedding.

Although shedding is a normal process for Dogs, the amount and frequency of hair that is shed often depends upon their health and breed type.

It can also depend on the season-many Dogs develop thick coats in the winter that are then shed in the spring.

Depending on when your puppy was born, it may shed its puppy coat before the regular seasonal shed in the spring or fall.

Most puppies lose their baby coat between six and 12 months of age as the new adult fur replaces it.

This can vary from breed to breed.
