Even though large in size, the dog is a companion dog and enjoys the attention and company of its family. The Poodle genes make them playful and curious by nature. They make a great playmate and are neither shy nor aggressive, making them ideal for playing with children. However, unlike its Poodle parent and other Poodle crossbreeds, the Pooda Houla needs to be socialized at an early stage as they are not very pet friendly and socializing them would help them live in harmony with others. They are an intelligent breed which is not very difficult to train, but training is advised at an early age for them.
