We're so happy to share our family of beautiful. spoiled, fun loving Standard Poodles with you! Our Facebook page is updated frequently, so check us out HERE
We are a small home-based program. We live in a subdivision/lake community and are limited in the number of dogs that we keep on site. All of our dogs live in our home and exercise in our fenced yard. We are fortunate to have a few dogs in lovely co-own and guardian homes. Other co-own /guardian opportunities are sometimes available - Just ask..
Puppies are available occasionally.
All of our dogs are AKC/UKC registered. As most of our dogs/puppies are multi-color, we show them UKC conformation. We've enjoyed wonderful success in the conformation ring. Our girls have been on the UKC top 10 for the past 4 years. 2018 - 2021. Scarlett is the first Brindle Emerald Grand Champion and has produced Champions, Grand Champions, Emerald and a Ruby Grand Champion, Obedience/Rally champion and a Best in Show winner! Our home-bred girl, Ivy is the UKC Top 10 #1 Solid Standard Poodle 2021.
We also enjoy participating in lots of dog sports in several venues - AKC, UKC, IABCA and ICE. Our boy, Jess, is the only Poodle to have ever earned the top Champion title in UKC Weight Pull -UEWPCH Elite Weight Pull Champion.
Our dogs are health tested beyond CHIC and PCA requirements. Most of their testing is listed on the OFA database, but they are clear of many health risks that are not published to OFA, so just ask.
