Standard Poodle Description
  The Standard Poodle is a medium to large-sized, elegant dog with a profuse, but well groomed and clipped, wiry, curly coat. It has a long head and muzzle. Its skull is a bit rounded, with a slight stop. Its wide ears hang close to the head and its eyes are oval and generally very dark. The Poodles length from the breastbone to rump is approximately the same as the height at the withers. Its topline is level except for a slight depression behind the withers. It has a rounded croup and its oval feet are small and compact. Its tail is docked to half the original length. It may be groomed into three basic styles: the "pet clip" - relatively short hair all over the entire body, the "English saddle clip", and the "Continental clip" - the rear half of the body is shaved, bracelets left around the ankles, and pom-poms left on the tail and hips. The Standard Poodle has a delightful springy gait.
