Welcome to our website. We are breeders of Standard Poodles in Port Angeles, Washington. Our Puppies are well socialized with people, animals, sounds, and experiences. We strive to provide appropriate stimulation for each puppy according to their development.
We begin potty training when puppies are 3-weeks-old by using a puppy litter. We also incorporate positive training while the puppies are young in such a way that the puppies don't even know they are receiving obedience training. We keep it fun. As maturing puppies stay with us we continue obedience training and they learn more and more the longer they are with us.
We temperament test using the Volhard tool to help us pair puppies to the right home. This helps for each puppy and family to come to a great match for each other.
A structure evaluation is performed on each puppy. A puppy with good structure is "comfortable in its own skin" and happier and able to perform better. This is especially essential to puppies that will grow and have important work like being a service dog, competing in agility and other dog sports, and also in conformation showing.
Each puppy is current on vaccines according to * Dr. Jean Dodd's protocol. Puppies receive their first vaccination when they are 8-weeks-old. Puppies have natural tails and dewclaws removed between 3-5 days-old. Puppies are wormed using Pyrantel. (*we also started vaccinating for Parvo, Distemper, Adenovirus Type 1, Adenovirus Type 2 (Hepatitis) Virus with Solo-Jec 5 at 8-weeks-old)
Puppies are sent home with a bag of goodies which includes the puppy's health record, an AKC puppy info packet, a toy, information on the sire and dam, good health info on fleas ticks and vaccines, and bag of the food they have been eating.
