Moyen is the French word for the fourth size of the Poodles in France, but many countries in Europe refers to them as Kleins, the German term. Its size falls in between the Miniature and Standard Poodles, but is not obtained by crossing the two, it is an actual fourth Poodle breed size in Europe and is not a new size.

Moyens (Kleins) cannot compete in the AKC ring against their larger counterpart, the Standard, due to their size. They however can compete in the UKC conformation venue and many are Champions. Moyens (Kleins) tend to be in the 15-20 inch range, 30-35 lbs and are the size of a small Standard Poodle.

The Moyen Poodle is an intelligent, joyful dog. They have playful temperaments and are known for their comical antics. They are an athletic dog and many enjoy agility competitions, retrieving, hunting, swimming and going on all sorts of adventures. Like most poodles, Moyens are a proud breed and enjoy showing off in competitions like show and obedience and right in your own back yard! They will need regular exercise but are also lovely sedate inside pets because they are happiest right beside you.

Poodles love to be around their owners and quickly bond to their new families. Because of their need for human interaction, poodles don't usually do very well left on their own for long periods of time. Because of their temperament and intelligence, they make great service dogs. They are the true companion dog!

The Moyen Poodle is easy to train because they love to learn and please their owners. This breed is known for their faithfulness and can make an excellent watchdog, but doesn’t do well as a guard dog because of their loving temperaments.

Grooming the Moyen is the same as grooming any poodle - they need regular brushing and will have to visit the groomer on a regular basis. But on the good side they do not shed and are non-allergenic.

Here at Wild Rose Kennels, our come from exceptional bloodlines with precise breeding for both outstanding conformation and gentle temperaments. Pedigree transcripts are available upon request. We do not dock tails, nor remove dew claws nor do we believe in early spay/neuter.

For folks who love poodles but don't want a large Standard or a small Miniature, the Moyen is absolutely the perfect choice!
