Default standard poodle

i am considering getting a standard poodle. i want a dog that is bigger
(not a toy anything) and that is smart enough to learn tricks and stuff. i
do like the show shed aspect but don't like the show look of them (with
puffs of hair everywhere and shaved in other spots). is there another way
to maintain the hair (all one length maybe)? any thoughts on this breed
choice for me? is it a good one for what i am looking for? do males or
females tend to be smarter? how about attachment? i heard females bond to
only one person and males to a whole family. i will have the dog living
with me only as i am single now but one day done the road i expect to have a
house full (with a husband and some kids). any thoughts? thanks in
advance.

I think it's called the puppy clip. It's one length all over. Looks really
nice. Standard poodles are very bright. I used to see one working at the
Utility level in Obedience competitions, a few years back. He was awesome
to behold.

These pages seem to indicate that this may just be the dog you are looking
for. They love being with people, and are good with children, according to
the above listed pages. I can't speak from experience though. I hope
someone can.
