This sums up the energy and spirit that live within my poodles. Throw a ball and you have their attention! As much as they love to explore and experience the great outdoors, they also love to have attention from us. Basically, I throw the ball and all the poodles run to retrieve it! Karen takes the pics! Arnie reaches great heights to ensure he gets the ball! Although Lilly is not in this pic, she is the one that can outrun the others.
The poodles are exercised off lead. I walk 6 at one time. They run, chase, play and search for rabbits. Their recall is good, as I am armed with treats and a ball and the whistle. Samson can be stubborn at times, but he comes when he is ready! Selective hearing I think its called.
