We are near Syracuse NY and breed toy poodles with an emphasis on health, confident and loving temperament, sound structure and beauty. Our dogs are successful in the AKC show ring, agility trials, and other sports and are loving home companions as well. We breed for our next generation of agility and show team mates, but the qualities that make a good competition dog also make for wonderful companions.
Our dogs are tested to or beyond the recommendations of the Poodle Club of America and their results are posted publicly at the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (www.ofa.org, some links below). In addition, we use genetic diversity testing available at UC Davis and the tools at BetterBred.com to plan our litters with all the latest genetic tools available.
We raise our puppies with science based protocols designed to produce confident and adaptable dogs. We are an Associate Breeder of Avidog and use breeding and whelping plans, early enrichment and socialization protocols to produce puppies ready for anything. They are confident in new situations and want to interact and work with people.
Toy poodles are highly intelligent, clean and do not shed. Larger toys make excellent pets for families. Puppies for performance (agility, obedience, etc) are sometimes available, as are puppies for pets. NOTE: we are no longer taking names for 2022 litters.
Here are some of our current breeding dogs and links to their health testing information. Proof of health testing is always provided for upcoming litters.
