Ask A Question


I can answer general questions about Poodles. My specific area of expertise is Standard Poodles, but I will answer all questions about Poodles and dog related questions if I can. If I can't answer your question, I will be able to find information or someone who can.

Experience in the area

I am a Dog Groomer and Dog Trainer, who has raised Standard Poodles for over 25 years. I can answer Housebreaking questions, Obedience/Training questions, Grooming questions, Breeding questions, and General Dog questions. I can also give SUGGESTIONS about general Health questions, but as I am not a Certified Vet, I cannot and will not diagnose illnesses. If you think that your dog is seriously ill, please contact your own Vet.


I am a member of the American Kennel Club.


I have worked at several Pet stores in my area, worked for a year as a Vet Tech, was an apprentice for a Dog Trainer, and have also worked at a Grooming/Showing kennel for several months. I have also raised, shown, currently train, and groom my own Standard Poodles, and have for over 25 years.

What do you like about this subject?

I have always loved dogs of all kinds and the Poodle has a special place in my heart. In my book they are the perfect breed, coming in all sizes and colors and you can find almost any temperment to fit your needs. Poodles are on of the most intelligent breeds and can easily adapt to many different styles of training.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

As with most subjects, there is always new things to learn about dogs. I always keep an ear open to new discoveries in the field of K-9 science.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

While most people think of the Poodle as a talented Circus performer, they were originally used for Hunting and Retriving in the field. Police in Germany also used these intelligent dogs for Police work, such as Drug Sniffing, Tracking, and Bite Work.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I am not sure of the reasoning for your dog to scratch. I would try using Zyrtec over Benedryl, it tends to work better. Also, if your dog is allergic to a dog

Hello Jeanette,  I have looked all over the net and haven't found anything that sounds like what your dog has, other than Cushing's Disease. I would check into Holistic Vets and see what they have to offer
