#20: No Poodles

There are “young” dogs and there are “old” dogs, and sorry, but poodles are owned mainly by people over 40. Why? Because they’re practical: smart, hypoallergenic, non-shedding. And because they’re out of style.

The small dog du jour is a Yorkie or a Dachshund, not a Toy Poodle. The big dog favored by hipsters might be a Lab or even a Labradoodle, but never a Standard Poodle. The retro favorite breed could be a German Shepherd, but won’t be a Poodle. In fact, Poodles are so far out they may even be coming in. But owning one still won’t do much for your Age Image.

    No sweaters on dogs either, please.

    Too bad — standard poodles have not (yet) been overbred and are not particularly prone to breed-specific illnesses and conditions. Dachshunds are prone to back problems, for instance.
