I'm so excited about Ivy's first litter! Her color is Cafe Au Lait, she is 2 1/2 years old and is the #1 Solid Standard Poodle on the UKC Top 10 for 2021, #4 in 2020. She is a Weight Pull Champion, with titles in AKC Rally and Scent work, among others. She earned UKC Total Dog 7 times in 2021 and is invited to the 2022 invitational. Machete is also 2 1/2 years old, and a beautiful blue and white parti, UKC Grand Champion, multi group winner, with a fabulous, sweet temperament. We're looking forward to some amazing and beautiful Performance and Pet puppies.

Limited Registration puppies $2500 I am taking $500 deposits at this time. Balance due at pickup. Puppies go home at 8 weeks or early July.
Puppies are raised with Puppy Culture Protocols, Early Neurological Stimulation, and trained to be enrichment seekers. They have their feet and ears handles frequently to prepare them for a life of grooming and handling. They will have their face/feet/tails shaved no less than 3 times by the age of 8 weeks, have had their nails clipped at least weekly, and have at least 2 baths. They are stacked on the table frequently to prepare them for that fact of life. Housebreaking has been started as well as crate training. They take treats from your hand and know that they must sit quietly in order to get their treat. They are Vet Checked before 8 weeks, and will come with all age appropriate vaccines, They will have been wormed 4 times by the age of 8 weeks.
I do temperament test my puppies at 7 weeks. This test helps to establish any puppies who might be suitable for service or performance work, as well as any puppies who may be better suited in certain types of homes, such as homes with more working opportunities, with/without other pets, etc.... My litters have been fairly consistent in temperament, and most homes are able to get the puppy they choose, unless a prior applicant chooses that puppy. All things equal, I will let the first depositors choose first from the puppies suitable for their home.
Ivy is not a small girl. She and Machete are both 25" and 55-60 lbs. Her mother often throws larger size puppies, and I expect the same from Ivy.
I feed and recommend Purina Pro Plan.
If you're interested in this litter, please submit a puppy application form. I will want to have a phone conversation with you to get to know one another and answer any questions you might have, and if it seems I'll have a puppy to suit you I'll let you know how to submit a deposit.
Huge Thanks to Pamela Litz for letting us use her beautiful boy, Machete. AND to Pam's husband, Michael for all of his wonderful help getting these two together!
