Q: When can you send me a picture of my new puppy?
A: We take pictures of our available puppies once they have passed their vet checks at 7 weeks. We do not take pictures before this. If you would like to see what our puppies look like, take a look at our gallery for recent pictures of puppies we have raised and sent home previously.

Q: Do you have a health guarantee?
A: Yes, we have a three year health guarantee against all genetic problems.

Q: I’m looking for an older dog. Do you have any retirees available for sale?
A: Yes we do. Our doggies do not have any training as we are breeders, not trainers. Expect to spend the same time and effort on them as you would a puppy with care and training. In order to obtain one of our retirees, you must have had a poodle in the past.

Q: Why do sizes and colours vary among the same litter?
A: Each puppy is an individual obtaining genetics from their ancestry. Puppies can be larger than their parents or smaller than the parents.

Q: When can I pick my puppy up? Can you ship?
A: We send our puppies home at 8 weeks at the earliest depending on the size of the puppy, and can be shipped to you no earlier than 12 weeks. This could vary depending on many factors as a young puppy is similar to a young child’s development.

Q: I have a small child in the house. Can I get a puppy from you?
A: We do not send toy sized puppies or smaller to a house with a child under the age of 6. Miniatures are however an ideal size for a house with smaller children.

Q: Do you dock tails?
A: Yes, we dock tails on all of our puppies save the moyens. If you do not like the docked tail you are welcome to pay for the puppy in full before birth.

Q: Do you sell breeding stock?
A: Rarely. We will sell only to approved purebred poodle breeders. We do not sell dogs for breeding doodles or other poodle mix breeds.
