Many people mistakenly believe that dogs with hair are hypoallergenic and will not cause any issues with allergy sufferers. However, all dogs produced dander, the element which normally can cause sneezing and other allergy symptoms.
The element which makes the Standard Poodle (and other sized Poodles) seem to be hypoallergenic is the fact that this dog does not shed in the customary sense. The hair does fall out, but not to the floor or furniture...it falls into itself. This is one of the reasons that daily brushing is important, as loose, dead hairs left in the coat can produce hard to get out tangles.
While the Standard Poodle is known for it's intricate clips (the possibilities are endless), the coat can be corded if an owner chooses. This is achieved by not clipping the coat and allowing the hair to grow. After 6 to 15 months, the hair will mat into cords which are then separated and evened out.
Standard Poodles may be solid, parti colored (a mix of colors) or phantom colored. Colors are: Apricot, Black, Blue, Brown, Cafe Au lait, Cream, Gray, Red, Silver, Silver beige and White. Learn much more about
