Most of the requested changes to the Poodle Breed Standard are straight forward clarifications as requested by judges or the Canadian Kennel Club (for example: that section pertaining to the proper conformation and carriage of undocked or natural tails).

The only large change to the Standard is the addition of the Multi-Coloured Poodle.
Reasons for this suggestion are described at the end of this document.
In the following document, colour coding is used:
Black writing indicates contents of the original breed standard.
Red writing indicates proposed additions or changes
Green writing indicates the breed standard committee's rationale for the proposed changes.
