Poodles are a highly intelligent breed and are very skillful in various activities.  People are acquainted with them from the past as circus performers, but they are also quite formidable trackers and herders.  They have amazing agility, and excel in obedience and show qualities, having taken top honors in many conformation shows.  Poodles also excel as assistance dogs due to their calm nature.  Drawings of the poodle breed date back to the 15th and 16th centuries by German artist Albrecht Durer, who established the popular image of the breed.  Poodles were the pet to have in the late 18th century Spain, and were also prominent in paintings by the Spanish artist Francisco Goya. During the reign of Louis XVI, toy poodles were the pampered favorites of France.  Poodles eventually made their way from the European continent to England and then elsewhere across the ocean to become one of the more highly favorited dog breeds worldwide.
