Dog ownership is like a rainbow. Puppies are the joy at one end. Old dogs are the treasure at the other.

 Most of our puppies are ready for their new homes between 10-12 weeks .The puppies live in our smoke-free home and each pup receives the individual attention and socializing required to start them off as stable and confident pups, and we do everything possible to ensure that you receive a healthy and happy puppy. We feed "Royal Canin"
to ensure a healthy pup. We do not place our
puppies with pet stores or sell at flea-markets. These puppies are our babies, we spoil them with lots of love, as we are true animals lovers.

We stay with our Moms all the time to ensure a safe delivery, and they are given extra nutrition during their pregnancy and after.

I specialize in quality not quantity. I have 3-4 generation pedigree on all my Poodles. Full CKC registration is provided with all puppies.             

We do not inbreed such as father/daughter, mother/son, brother/sister and half    brother/sister for health-temperament reason.   

All our puppies see the vet when they are 3 days old and have their tails docked and dew claws removed. When they see the vet, the Mom comes too, we don't like separating Mom and babies. At 8 weeks they have there first shots. All our Puppies will be Micro-chipped.

The puppies have weekly baths starting at 6 weeks,  to prepare them for a lifetime of grooming. The    clipping is gradual, to make it more of a           comfortable process. Starting with the face and feet at 6 week. The sounds of the blow dryer, clippers and the clipper vacuum also help to prepare them for airline travel.

The puppies will spend time outside when the     weather is nice. They have their own little space   where they can run and play to get exercise       and fresh air.

You are always welcome to come to our home to pick up your puppy.

            COAT CHANGE

Once the puppy is approximately 9-11 months old, they will start to go through what is called a    "coat change". This is where the soft, silky puppy hair starts to change into a more thick and coarsely textured coat (adult coat). During this time the coat will mat quickly.

Poodle coats have been known to mat almost overnight while going through the coat change, but not to worry, this period will be over by the time the puppy is 15-18 months old. This does not mean your puppy will never mat again, just not as easily. This is why we recommend 6-8 weeks between hair cuts and keep your puppy groomed regularly to avoid painful  dematting and strain on your puppy. They're wonderful non-shedding plush coats, you'll find they are one of the cleanest, easiest dogs to live with, without the nuisance of pet hair on clothing and furniture.  These are great companions for those that are allergic to dogs; they do not shed. 

Poodles at times do not get their curls until 6-12 month of age. also color at birth is no guarantee of what their adult color may be. Some reds fade and some darken.

       Microchip for Safety  

This rice-sized computer chip is implanted under the skin, usually between the dog's shoulder blades. The chip activates when a "scanner" passes over and reads the registered identification number that leads to the owner. The microchips cause no discomfort, cannot be lost or altered, and easily last your dog's lifetime.

While tags still offer the most instantly obvious ID, they often fall off the collar unnoticed. This leaves your dog-friend without anything that says who owns him should he get lost. Most veterinarians and shelters own and use scanners.

         PUPPY'S  TEETH

Your puppy probably had most, if not all, of her 28 puppy teeth (deciduous teeth) when you first brought her home. Deciduous teeth, which erupt around 3 to 6 weeks of age, work just fine for puppy food, though you may want to moisten dry food if your puppy is just learning to eat it.

At 3 to 4 month of age, your puppy will start losing her deciduous teeth as permanent teeth come in. Most puppies swallow their puppy teeth as they eat, so you probably won't even see the lost teeth. Teething in puppies is similar to teething in human infants, except that it only takes a few months. Your puppy may be fussy and refuse to eat. She will also chew almost anything she can get her teeth around.

How can you soothe your puppy's teething woes? If your little pal stops eating her dry food, try moistening it with water or broth, or stir in a tiny bit of canned food. Don't switch from one food to another; this can lead to digestive tract upset and turn your puppy into a picky eater. Contact your veterinarian if your puppy hasn't eaten anything for 24 hours (or less, if your puppy is prone to hypoglycemia).

You can't avoid the chewing phase of teething, so give your youngster plenty of safe chew toys. Keep an eye on your little friend to keep your shoes, carpet, furniture and other objects safe. Don't give your puppy any medication or treatment for teething pain without first consulting your veterinarian. Sympathy is always good and can be administered in unlimited amounts. Sometimes a permanent tooth comes in before the corresponding deciduous tooth has been lost. The puppy will then have two teeth in the same space (one behind the other). This situation that can lead to malocclusion and periodontal disease. If your puppy has this problem, contact your veterinarian, who can remove the unneeded deciduous teeth.
