I do like Poodles, but i think there is even more variation in temperament than there is with Havanese. Some can be a bit snappy, others are sweethearts. Some have WAY high energy levels, some are very, VERY serious. In general, as Pam said, I think it's a really smart, trainable breed.
There used to be a couple of people on the forum with both Poodles and Havanese. One gal, the one with Louis, (the Havanese she purposely cut down, then did regular updates for us as she grew him back out... She's a groomer) also has a standard Poodle. I have to say, if I were going to get a Poodle, I'd want a standard. Everyone I know is a lovely dog with a great temperament. One is a bit of a goof ball, but the others (I know 4 or 5) are uber serious and sweet.
