We, the undersigned,agree with the standard set by the Poodle Club of America for the Breed and want it to remain as it stands. The Standard Poodle is over 15 inches at the highest point of the shoulders. Any Poodle which is 15 inches or less in height shall be disqualified from competition as a Standard Poodle. The Miniature Poodle is 15 inches or under at the highest point of the shoulders, with a minimum height in excess of 10 inches. Any Poodle which is over 15 inches or is 10 inches or less at the highest point of the shoulders shall be disqualified from competition as a Miniature Poodle. The Toy Poodle is 10 inches or under at the highest point of the shoulders. Any Poodle which is more than 10 inches at the highest point of the shoulders shall be disqualified from competition as a Toy Poodle. As long as the Toy Poodle is definitely a Toy Poodle, and the Miniature Poodle a Miniature Poodle, both in balance and proportion for the Variety, diminutiveness shall be the deciding factor when all other points are equal.

Donna Breitenwischer, United States2 years ago Comments: Standard for toys should stay at 10" . But many of you overlook main cause of problem which are JUDGES who don't know or follow the size standard.
Debbie Gnann, United States2 years ago Comments: I am definitely against showing a Miniture and a Standardbred in the same class. I was not aware of this until this years AKC Show. The Standard and the Miniture did not work. People still use them as working dogs, hunting, and should be allowed to show as a working dog. I have had a miniature for many years, and he died. We just got our new pup, a standard. He is my first, after a long line of the smaller variety. I thought that when you have an AKC you should be sure you are getting what you pay for. The Toy is a separate dog from the Miniature and The Standard, should remain the same. With all three in different classes. They should never allow people to breed them to anything else, either./ Thanks Debbie
