“Teacup” and “Toy” Refer to Different Things
Toy breeds refer, generally, to any dog under 15 pounds; as in all Pomeranians and Chihuahuas and so on. Teacup breeds refer to dogs who are specifically bred to be even smaller than Toy sized dogs.
They weigh around 2 pounds when born and will only grow to around 5 pounds once fully grown. They also are always under 9 inches in height. If you’re looking to buy a Teacup Poodle, you will be looking at a price of around $2,000 to $2,500.
The Teacup Poodle is an unofficial size variation of the Poodle. It is, in reality, a Toy Poodle, but is smaller in size than the AKC Toy Poodle standard. Breeders are purposely breeding them accordingly. Teacups are common in the States. They tend to be 9 inches or smaller, and under 6 pounds in weight.
On average, teacup poodles can live for up to 12-15 years. Experts believe that some of these tiny pups can live even longer if they are healthy. You just need to give them quality food and get them neutered at the right time. However, some factors can affect their lifespan and you need to be careful about them.
Toy Poodles are extremely intelligent and are easily trained. They are agile and graceful as well as smart, and they enjoy and excel in a variety of canine sports, including agility, obedience, and tracking. They are excellent water-retrievers and also compete in dock diving and retriever hunt tests.
Yes, toy poodles bark a lot. Without proper training, toy poodles bark more often than other dogs. However, toy poodles are intelligent and easily trained, and they won’t bark a lot if they are well-trained.
Toy poodles are actually rated as “moderate” barkers compared to other dogs, but their temperament makes them more likely to bark often if they’re left untrained.
Toy Poodles can be left alone for four to six hours without requiring a potty break. However, it’s important to make sure your dog has access to food and water during this time, as well as a place to relieve himself if necessary. If you leave for longer, you may want to consider hiring a dog sitter.
No, toy poodles do not smell. In fact, toy poodles are known for having little odor compared to other dog breeds. With that said, like all dogs, toy poodles can develop a bad smell if something isn’t right with their hygiene or health. Good hygiene and proper grooming are essential to keep your dog smelling good.
This breed is very dedicated to its family. Some dogs can be shy in front of strangers and some may bark too much. As the energetic and sprightly Toy Poodle is among the brightest of breeds, it is a pleasure to train — eager to please, responsive, alert, sensitive, playful, and lively.

Bred down from the Standard Poodle are three other sizes of Poodle: toy, miniature, and medium (although the medium is not recognized by some kennel clubs). The smaller varieties have always been companion dogs, and were popular in the French court between the reign of Louis XIV and Louis XVI. An elegant dog, the Poodle is energetic, playful, affectionate, and eager to please. It is also very adaptable, equally at home in the city or the countryside. The dog’s non-shedding coat makes it popular with allergy sufferers, although it does need regular brushing and clipping.
“Poodle” likely derives from Pudel, a German term describing one who plays and splashes in water or puddles. The exact lines of genetic origin are obscured, but ancient breeds such as the Irish water spaniel, Rough haired water dog and others contribute to the type, and perhaps the first of the smaller types of poodles originated by crosses with terrier type for use in truffle hunting. German history records poodle type dogs in the 15th century. The toy version of poodle first widely entered the history record in the 18th century. Very early records in the Mediterranean place poodle type dogs in the first century. Though often referred to as the French poodle, the breed is not though to have originated there. AKC recognition occurred in 1887.

Longevity: 12-15 years. The smaller types may reach 15-17 years on average.
Extreme intelligence, sociability, and excellent trainability are well known poodle traits. Very lively, they do tend to bark, and need to be socialized to other pets and people or else they can potentially be nippy. They need close human companionship and tend to be aloof with strangers. They are good alarm barkers.The poodles require regular clip and grooming (every 6-8 weeks), and are low shedding and low allergy dogs. They tend to need more frequent dental care. They do well in town or country and need moderate levels of exercise. They are high activity around the house, though the standard poodles are often less active indoors.
