The standard poodle was originally chosen for its beauty, brains, and hypoallergenic qualities. As time went on, we learned more and more about color, health factors, temperament, and the extraordinary flexibility of the breed. A poodle can do anything. Our motivation in breeding has been to create the best possible puppy, including structure, health, temperament, and beauty. We are selective and thoughtful about our breeding and selling practices. We do not breed dogs to develop pets, but to create the best possible poodle that can be found. We take our Standard Poodle breeding seriously and try to offer quality puppies for families everywhere. We breed Standards for the love of the breed itself with an understanding to better the breed for future generations. We are always trying to improve what we have and want to offer the best standard poodles in Maryland. All of our dogs live in our home, lay on our furniture, and sleep with us and our children who need a sleeping buddy. We hope to be able to offer you a beautiful Standard Poodle for you and your family to cherish and bring love and joy to your home as well. What is special about our poodles? There is only one litter per year, and our females are breed after the age of two and do not have more than three litters. Our dogs are Health tested OFA cleared before breeding and can be registered with AKC. Puppies are raised in the home with attention to all aspects of growth and development and go the new homes with a contract, including limited one-year health guarantee and breeder commitment. We only breed Standard Poodles.
How about full tales and Declaws?
Our Puppies come with full tales and are not declawed. Unlike other dogs, Standard poodles are born with only their front dewclaws. Dewclaws act as a thumb to give them a firmer grip, and without them, poodles have a hard time holding items and provide them with traction, stability, and extra grip when they are running. There is no special care for them and are trimmed the same way as the other nails. Although there is no medical research that will be heathier with or without their declaws, we have decided not to remove declaws unless it is medically necessary.
We do not dock tails. Amputating a part of a dog's spine because it’s fashionable to have a docked
the tail doesn’t sit well with us. We have owned poodles with docked tails, but we will not dock tails
for our puppies. We have attached a couple of video links for your information
What about size guarantees?
Please take note that we can not guarantee the adult size of the puppy but would be happy to give you an approximate size based on the size of the parents. There are no guarantees of the exact size of the puppy as an adult. Charting is not always an accurate way to predict the size and can give a false representation of expectations. Pups typically go home from 8-10 weeks. Visits to see the puppies are welcome and encouraged!
