Poodles are well-known for their dark eyes, fluffy coats, and drooping ears. The Poodle is also relatively calm-natured, with a warm disposition, making it a popular breed for both children and families.

Unlike many breeds, the Lab is also quite observant and is capable of self-training through the observation of actions by its owner. Although little is known about the dog’s origins, experts believe that the first Labs were bred during the early 1800s. It wasn’t until the 1880s, however, that modern Labs were first developed in England.
