New Hope at Genteel Standard Poodles

I was ready to just stop breeding Standard Poodles and just be content with and thankful for Gable, Chianti and Paris –  not that I was not already thankful for them, all three are so special and fill my heart with joy and love every day… The loss of Dove and Lace has been huge.  I just have to share though that through all the pain and heartbreak, I had this incredible peace about it all.  I can’t describe it but any of you that know Jesus surely know what I am talking about.  What a blessing that peace has been to me.  I still miss the girls every day, I still cry when I...

Here is how it happens: At about 10 days or so of age, the puppies begin to crawl or wobbly walk AWAY from their sleeping area to urinate.  IF the dam is not close by to clean them herself that is.  It is just natural instinct to keep their sleeping area clean. We used to start out by putting paper potty pads around the sleeping area but they had...

The Puppies’ 4th week

Half way through the puppies fouth week! I just can’t believe they are a month old now. In this week, we help the puppies to start building a conditioned emotional response (CER) to the clicker. Using a little bit of raw ground turkey or beef on my finger tip, they gain a “reward”to the sound of the clicker, preparing them to learn crucial behaviors such as pay attention, to make eye contact, etc. Here’s a quick overview of all our puppies learn beginning at four weeks: Recall (“Come.”) is one of the most important commands any canine can learn because sometimes it can save...
