wake clean/dry at 7 am. ‘Health Certificate’ and Immunizations are appropriate
to age. Puppies/Adults are wormed 3 x’s on strict schedule even when there is no
evidence of parasites.

If, for some reason I can’t provide the
puppy as we agreed on, then your deposit is refunded.

We occasionally hold back a puppy to use in our breeding program.
How the breeding program works
We have decided to allow others to raise most of our dogs
in order to keep all our dogs as beloved pets and not kennel dogs.
The dogs are kept in homes with only a few other dogs or as only dogs.
We try to keep our dog population down to less than 4 dogs.
It allows me to focus on my own dogs, have time to go on vacations and
room to travel with everyone.
All dogs are health tested before being bred with OFA hips,
Thyroid, SA, vWD DNA, and CERF eyes done at a bare minimum.
All studs tested NE and DM clear via DNA blood work.
No female is ever intentionally bred before 2 years of age.
No female has more than 3 litters for us.
Most have one-two litter in their lifetime.
All females are spayed by 6 years.
Our boys are kept IN our home, not in a ‘stud room’ or
‘kennel’. Poodles are very easy to
train and learn quickly what is allowed and what isn’t.
Foster Program: A limited
number of puppies (generally one or two from each litter) are placed as ‘foster
dogs’. This section explains that
You have come to this section to see what a foster program
is all about! Great.
To be a breeder and to have pups, you have to have a number of dogs to
breed. The only option for breeders
is to kennel their dogs or to do what we are going to do.
Q. What is “fostering”?
A. Taking one
of my best dogs into your home, but not neutering or spaying that dog.
You must keep them intact for breeding to my dogs, but also keep them as
beloved house pets.
Q. Why would you foster your dogs?
A. Because the
Standard Poodle gene pool is shrinking and the only way to keep us from constant
inbreeding is to have more dogs as options for breeding.
In order to do that, we must have large kennels or place dogs in homes
who are willing to keep them intact for future use.
I am choosing to place them as ‘fosters’ so that they can get the
individual attention they deserve, yet still be able to pass on their genes to
Q. What am I responsible for if I foster a dog?
A. You are
responsible for the daily care, yearly vet bills, or expenses that might occur
if the dog hurts itself while living with you.
In short, what you would if you adopted a dog from a shelter or bought a
pet from a breeder.
It would also be nice if you were to put one title on the
puppy in some sport or a Canine Good Citizen title (CGC).
Do not let this scare you.
The CGC title is very easy and often can be done by one year of age.
Other titles can be conformation, obedience, rally, lure coursing,
hunting, etc. Whatever you feel is
your dogs strong point, you can focus on.
Why is this good for the dog? It
helps to give the dog stability.
Likely you came here and were drawn to my dogs because they do more than
just look pretty. Putting a title on
the dog shows they can work in a stressful and exciting environment.
It also shows they have a brain, important when you breed Poodles, who
are known to be smart. A dog who is
hyper and unable to focus will be harder to title.
A dog that is reactive or upset by social events will be harder to title.
It proves the stability of my dogs, which is important when I am often
living far from the foster dog themselves.
Q. Do you pay for anything?
When the dog turns 2 years of age, I will pay to have all the health test
needed to certify that dog as ‘breeding quality’.
If all the health testing is completed and comes back normal, then they
might be bred at some point and become an active part of our breeding program.
The open-door to board your pup/young dog here if
you go away
Q. What if it doesn’t pass the health testing?
A. I will ask
you to please have the dog spayed or neutered and it will become fully your
family’s dog. This is a way for me
to have access to them for breeding, but if they are not breeding quality I do
not have to find them a home. Your
home is their home for their entire life.
This is the reason I prefer
to use foster homes in our breeding program.
There may be other reasons I choose not to use the dog you
foster in my breeding program.
Because you will live near me, we can constantly evaluate the development of the
dogs temperament, structure, and health and decide if that dogs genes are truly
needed in our poodles.
Q. Can you explain
how this will really all work?
A. The dog will
be placed in a foster home where it will remain for it’s entire life, as long as
you take good care of the dog. At age two, If I DO decide that this is a
dog with everything I am looking for, then I will have all of the required
health testing done at my expense and only AFTER that comes up clear and in good
order will I begin to review everything I know and observe of this dog to find
the best mate possible. All costs
related to breeding will be mine.
The foster dog will return to me for breeding.
If it is a bitch then it will also return to my home to whelp the puppies
where they will all stay until the puppies are weaned at six to seven weeks, at
which time the foster dog will return to your home.
If it is a stud, he will come to my house to breeding to my females or
have semen collected and shipped to the girl in question.
Once this is done, he will be returned to you.
I will never breed more than three litters from a single
bitch, nor will she be bred past the age of six.
There will be many times that after only a single litter the dog will be
spayed and retired from my breeding program.
Studs will likely have their semen collected and frozen but
might also be kept intact for up to 10 years.
Standard Poodles are gentlemen.
They are not like many breeds and with very little training understand
that they do NOT mark in a home, especially their home.
Oh sometimes they will lose their minds and pee in a home with a girl
who’s in season and ready to breed, but we will not be fostering males in homes
with intact females so this will never be an issue.
They are good with other dogs and neutering rarely changes a Standard
Poodle who is well trained and well socialized.
The only reason to neuter a Standard Poodle is for health concerns.
At the time that the foster dog ends it’s breeding career
and is spayed or neutered, all registration paperwork will be prepared to show
that the dog is completely and wholly owned by you.
