Poodles are probably the most misunderstood of breeds. The haircut makes people think they are wimps, but that is wrong. They are actually very intelligent, wonderful companions -- and make great hunting dogs!
Hello and welcome!
We have some exciting news! PUPPIES...PUPPIES...PUPPIES
We have some exciting news... It looks like Darcy / Reuben will be having puppies. We will be offering these puppies at limited AKC registration for $2000.00 each. These puppies will be the larger (Royal) sized standard poodles.
If you would like your name to be put on the 'litter notification list', please send me an e-mail. I will then include you in the 'e-mail notification' of future litters.
Please feel free to contact us with additional questions. email@example.com 720-217-2012
We appreciate your interest in our poodles. They are the best out there! And certainly worth the wait - if you can!
We are a small, family operated, poodle breeder. All of our poodles live with us in our home. They are part of our family and we love them dearly.
Our puppies will grow to be a larger sized standard poodle. (some know them as 'Royal Standards') Adult males will weigh approx. 75-85+ lbs, females approx. 70-75+ lbs. 28"-30" tall, to the shoulders. We have had a few puppies reach 31" tall, when full grown. Checkout the photos on the 'Sold Puppies' page.
Puppies are available with Limited AKC registration papers (starting at $2000.00) or Full AKC registration papers (call on pricing)
Full AKC papers will allow the owner to breed their dog, and register the puppies.
RESERVING A PUPPY
We are currently accepting non-refundable (500.00) five hundred dollar deposits to hold a puppy from your choice of parents.
CEDAR / RUSTY DARCY / REUBEN GINGER / REUBEN FOXY / CHARLIE
These deposits will be held for a minimum of 10 months from the date received, or until the litter is born.
To place a deposit on a litter, I will need to know: *Are you looking for a male or female puppy? *Limited AKC registration papers ($2000.00) OR Full AKC registration papers (call for pricing & availability) Full AKC will allow you to breed with your pup and register the litters. *What breeding pair are you looking at? Reference listed pairs above. *Please send your name, address and phone numbe by email. Also include in this email a brief explanation of what you are looking for in a puppy. Family, and home.
Once the puppies are born, you will be notified that we have a puppy reserved in your name. If there are not enough puppies in the litter for all the families on the list, and you were unfortunate and not getting one, you can ask for a full refund at that time, or transfer your deposit to another litter of your choice.
Sending a 'pre-litter' deposit will give you the peace of mind and assurance that you are on the puppy list. It will also give you a better chance of getting a puppy from one of our litters.
At approx 6-7 weeks of age, the new familes can pick out their puppy in the order of which we received a deposit. Families purchasing full AKC registration will have a higher priority, when choosing their puppy.
Viewing of the litter prior to 5 weeks is fine, but only for a short time, as it makes the mother uncomfortable. Handling of the puppies is not allowed until they are 6 weeks old, at which time the 'puppy picking' will start. We will identify which puppy you pick out by marking them. (for example) a female with the front right foot shaved, or a female with the left rear foot shaved, male with both front feet shaved, etc.
In the event a familiy changes their mind on purchasing a puppy, deposit monies will not be refunded, nor transferred to another litter, but used towards additional advertising expenses in selling the puppy.
At eight weeks old, the puppies are ready to go to their new homes. We do offer boarding for your puppy at $20.00/ day if pick-up is delayed and goes beyond 9 weeks old.
When the puppies 'leave the nest', we send home ("scented" like their mother and siblings) a towel and a stuffed animal to help with the transition when leaving their parents. They will have their first set of vaccines, a 2-year written health guarantee against genetic issues, (as of date, we have never had any problems with our adult dogs, their puppies or from the breeders we bought them from) and a 6 lb bag of puppy food, (Purina ProPlan, Puppy chicken and rice, shredded blend.) If you choose to change puppy food, use this bag to slowly switch them over and to avoid an upset stomach.
We also feed BilJac Puppy Select. The puppies really like both types of food and tend to do very well on them.
If a genetic issue arises within the two-year time frame. (or actually any time in your puppy's life, as we need to know this for breeding purposes) Please get in touch with us. Send us a letter from your veterinarian, describing the issue. If indeed there is a genetic issue, we will offer you another puppy, or place you on the waiting list for the next litter.
Please note: we do not ship our puppies out of state, as we have no problem selling them in Colorado. On the other hand, we have had several families from out of state purchase a puppy and find alternate ways of getting them home. All arrangements of taking a puppy home when living out of state is the responsibility of the new owner.
If you live out of state, yet another option is to use a 'pet chauffeur'. Katie Tice is located here in the Denver area and will help you make arrangements to fly your puppy home. www.petsfly.com Katie is a pro when it comes to shipping pets and is very reliable. Phone: 720-291-4974
"Royal Standard Puppies" It is very important to pick up your puppy as close as possible when eight weeks old, as these little guys are big! At eight weeks old, female pups will weigh approx 17 lbs. Male pups will weigh approx 19 lbs. Both are about 14" tall to their back. The pups will fit in the soft sided carry-on bags, recommended by the airlines which fits under the seat in front of you. It will be tight, but families who fly in to pick up their puppy make it home!
These are BIG puppies!
