Quality Standard Poodles in black, blue, apricot, cream and occasionally parti-colors from Michigan
2016 celebrates 18 years as owners/breeders/exhibitors
of this unique and elegant breed, the Standard sized Poodle.......
We are two sisters who have been active in breeding and dog sports for 30+ years.
Our association with Poodles began at a young age.
We grew up enjoying the companionship of Toy and Miniature poodles
thanks to our grandmother.
Our parents also instilled in us a love for animals and because of that
we have spent most of our lives enjoying the rewards of owning
a menagerie of furry companions.
Our poodles enjoy the country life on 15 acres which is nestled
along a fast moving trout stream, the "Little Manistee" that winds through some of
Michigan's beautiful National forests.
We consider health, temperament, intelligence
and reaching the preferred standard to be the most important.
Nature doesn't always guarantee perfect health when breeding dogs
but we guarantee that the dogs we do breed have been health tested themselves.
We wait until our dogs are of health-tested age
to introduce them into our breeding program
and at times have waited until age three or older.
Our poodle moms have on the average no more than 3 litters in their lifetime if even that.
We don't support mixing our Standard Poodles with other breeds
in following the latest trends.... so you will not find any "designer"
or "doodles" being offered on this site.
It makes no sense to charge families large sums of money for a mixed breed?
If that is what you prefer, then by all means,
please help those in a shelter needing a home.
We raise PUREBRED,
Standard Poodles ONLY!!
We double and at times triple register some of our dogs
with other clubs such as United Kennel Club(which is the 2nd oldest U.S. club)
and Canada to be able to participate in their events.
We do not line breed or intentionally in-breed.
Our poodles have very low COI. which means low in-breeding.
We have found in our years with Standard poodles
that they are affectionate, intelligent,
and thrive on praise and attention.
They make excellent companions
for the family as well as
obedience, therapy, and hunting dogs.
We always welcome phone conversations and visits by appointment after
initial contact via our puppy questionnaire.
