AKC and UKC registration available.
All puppies are sold under limited AKC registration to approved pet homes at the price of $2500, unless co-own or other show homes are requested and approved. Pet puppies are to be spayed/neutered at an age appropriate time. As it's important for their bodies to benefit from hormones that will not be produced after spay/neuter, the recommended age to neuter a male is 18 months. Your vet may recommend you spay your females slightly sooner. I provide pre-paid AKC registration which may be completed at pickup if you provide a name at that time. Pre-paid registration does not require an AKC registration form so one will not be provided with the puppy. Limited registration puppies can still participate and title in any AKC sport.
Co-own is a great way to get started showing poodles with minimal cost. I do not charge a higher price for the puppy, but I do add in $300 for registration/admin fees. Or you can show under a UKC TL number and avoid this fee. Once you earn a UKC champion title and two other performance titles, or a UKC Grand Champion title, or an AKC Champion title, I sign full registration over to you. I would always insist that responsible choices are made in breeding the dog - only breeding to health tested, preferably titled, purebred poodles, and never any doodles or merle poodles. Other co-own options available.
UKC registration papers will be provided with full registration options. Or if you purchased your puppy with limited registration, I will provide UKC registration papers after proof of spay/neuter. You can still show in UKC conformation/sports with a Temporary Liscense (TL) number. And you can also show in UKC conformation if your dog has been altered. It's a really great way to learn the ropes of showing poodles.
My Position on Doodling
I don't approve of intentionally breeding mixed breed dogs. Nothing against the dog itself - I love all dogs, and mixed breeds are great, I've owned and loved many as pets, but never bred them. The doodle thing is out of hand and everything is being mixed with a poodle because of their intelligence and hypoallergenic/non-shedding qualities. Often these mixed breeds cost more than puppies from a responsibly bred, titled and health tested pure bred. I don't get that. Years ago mixed breeds were given away free, but it seems to be the fad to overpay for "designer dogs" or "hybrids". There is nothing glamorous or special about mixing dog breeds.
That being said - I 100% support your right to over pay for a mixed breed if you wish.
I believe in supply and demand, so if the public wants mixed breed dogs then there will always be someone providing them, but I prefer to have my line stay out of it. We've worked hard to prove our dogs to be excellent examples of the breed, so I do not want my puppies used for doodling of any sort (including merle).
I will not knowingly sell a puppy to anyone who is producing mixed breeds or may have intentions to produce them. There are a lot of other breeders who will take your money, so I don't feel my position should cause a hardship for anyone. Thank you for understanding.
