Many issues concern poodle breeders today, some which affect only one of the varieties and some which plague the breed as a whole.

I have used this space on my website for good reason.  Be aware and beware of dogs that come from parents that are not health tested - Caveat emptor - Buyer Beware .  Don't just take a breeder's word for it, ask for an actual copy of the health certificates.  If a breeder tells you, "I don't test because I don't have any health problems in my lines", please find another breeder!

Although parents that have passed all tests can still produce affected offspring, your odds are much better if you are dealing with a breeder that is conscientious enough to spend the time and money to test their breeding stock. Do not hesitate to contact me concerning health issues. If I cannot answer your questions, I will find someone that can.

Everyone wants a beautiful dog.  Some people want a dog to show, some a dog to work, but we all want a healthy and sound companion.  It is your responsibility as a breeder or a buyer to make certain your companion has the best chance to fulfill those needs.

Minerals and Vitamins: We use NuVet supplements ,if you would like to try you can use our order code #68911

Usually we are very skeptical to anything distributed by private retailers and prefer to use products which are reputable and working. To our big surprise NuVet does show the difference and what we like the most is made in USA , very simple and have all ingredients we need in every day perfect performance. Instead of buying 4-5 different supplements that's what I was doing before (Brewing yeast ; sea meal ; etc) I simply switched to NuVet
