A Standard Poodle is a pretty good sized dog about the size of a smaller GSD. All the Standard Poodles I've known have been exceptionally smart, trainable, and generally nice dogs. Active though. And we all should know what smart + active can mean for a house pet! They are vocal...but I would say no more vocal than my Shepherds. There is the extensive grooming, but consequently they don't shed.

The minature and toy varieties in my experience tend to be a good deal yappier and more high strung.

Although, I do continue to disagree with her idea that a poodle will guard the house. Seems unlikely.
I would agree with this in general. I think it would be a pretty special poodle. Unless by "guard the house" she actually means "bark at the door". In which case...so would a Pomeranian. Now there's a breed I don't care for.
