        "Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention,
            Sincere effort, intelligent direction and skilful execution;
               It represents the wise choice of many alternatives." ~ William A. Foster


Our goal is to breed happy, healthy, versatile Standard Poodles that will excel in the show ring, performance venues and as cherished family pets. We strive to produce genetically healthy puppies, as free as possisble from genetic faults.  Our dogs are proven in both the show ring and performance events.  We are dedicated to screening homes that will give them love, attention and care throughout their lifetime. We only breed our best in hopes of producing Standard Poodles that will make a positive contribution to our breeding program as well as the breed gene pool.   We value and breed for balanced, strong working drives.  Each breeding is carefully planned from fully health tested parents.  All pets are sold on CKC non-breeding contracts with spay/neuter agreements. Breeding prospects are sold on co-own contracts until their Championship has been confirmed by CKC and their health testing verified.

Health & Temperament
Health and temperament are our priority. The parents of our puppies are tested for hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, eyes (CERF), heart (echocardiogram by board certified cardiologist), sebaceous adenitis (SA), thyroid, von Willebrands disease (vWD), Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) and neonatal encephalopathy (NEwS). Parents are proven performance dogs with biddable, intelligent and social temperaments. Puppies are microchipped and registered with the Canadian Kennel Club. Puppies have had their tails docked and dew claws removed, are health checked by our Veterinarian and will have received their 1st vaccine.  We follow Dr. Jean Dodds vaccine protocol.  Puppies are tested for temperament and structure at 8 weeks of age. They are stimulated and socialized, ask us about how we raise puppies while they here in our home. We recommend you take your new puppy to your own vet for a health check within 72 hours of taking him/her home.

It Pays to Train Your Dog!
