Produce Standard Poodles who will be an asset to the future of the breed in every way.
By doing everything in my power to produce pups with stable temperaments, excellent health, correct structure and genetic diversity. I research extensively, use genetic testing to my advantage, and intensively socialize to proof my pups. Puppies have natural tails and dewclaws (for more info, please see the links page), are micro-chipped and CKC registered. I follow Dr. Jean Dodds Vaccine protocol. Being interested in life-long learning, my practices as a breeder have evolved along with new findings in research.
Visitors are always welcomed in person (or video-call). It's a great way for us to socialize puppies and practice obedience and therapy training. It’s important to know that I do NOT run a kennel but rather I am a very selective breeder who occasionally has puppies born and raised in my suburban home. All the dogs who contribute to my breeding program who do not live with me have been my companions as puppies until they found the perfect guardian or co-owner home.
I am in this for the long term betterment of my beloved breed: it's a passion for me. There are loads of photos and regular updates on my Facebook page. You may enjoy looking at my videos on my youtube channel.
My dogs and I are members of Caring Paws Animal Therapy & Blue Ribbon Therapy Dogs. Member in good-standing with the following clubs: The Canadian Kennel Club, The Poodle Club Of Canada, The Ottawa Valley Poodle Club, Versatility in Poodles, Lakeshore Dog Training Association, Club Agilité Canin de St Lazare & Club Equestre Les Forestieres .
Please research this purchase as you would any big ticket item. You will have this pup longer than your car! If you don't do anything else but do decide on a poodle: please, please, please refer to the breeder evaluation tools prepared by the wonderful volunteers at Versatility in Poodles. At VIP you will find all the tools you need to educate yourself.
