We are looking for families who want to be active with their Poodles, try new activities (such as lure coursing, agility, barnhunt, etc.) in addition to being part of the family.  Our goal is to place our dogs and puppies with families that are like-minded .  They are first and foremost our pets, however, we enjoy taking them out and showing their true abilities and character.

Sorry, we have no puppies available at this time

If you are interested in being on our waiting list, please email us and send us an application.

We currently have a lovely 3 year old female available to a guardian/co-owning home. Please scroll down for more information.


In order to keep improving our program and giving our dogs the very best life possible, we sometimes look for homes that are willing to be part of our passion by co- owning dogs with us that will remain intact (not spayed or neutered).  These homes will need to continue with natural rearing, positive training and socialization and perferably, being involved in various activities/events with the what will be an amazing Standard Poodle.


Available To Guardian/Co-Owner Home


Dove head shot
This beautiful and vivacious young lady is looking for the perfect guardian/co-owner,forever home. She’s AKC registered, and is genetic testing clear by parentage. She is very sound and beautiful in structure and movement and we would love to see her shown but it is not a deal breaker at all. A loving home that will adore her and spend lots of their time with her and make sure she gets plenty of exercise and love is most important to us.
Dove is go-getter. She has a phenomenal temperament and a highly willing attitude. She has great drive for work and play, so a performance/working home  or a life with an active family,would be a plus. **

Dove is Second Generation naturally reared and her guardian home would have to commit to keeping her on a prey model raw diet and eliminate all toxic chemical laden products from their home.

**We are just not able to keep up her training and spend as much one on one time with her as we would love to at this time, and Dove was born to be by your side and always learning something.  We’re not happy at all that we’re not her best fit at this time, but we want what’s best for her.

Genteel Standard Poodle puppies are evaluated at 7 weeks of age for aptitude and temperament and at 8 weeks for conformation/structure.  Our puppies are bright, curious, outgoing, easily accepting of new things and  enjoy going to new places and riding in the car! They interact with our adult poodles, family, visitors and children.

We breed for happy, confident puppies who will excel in therapy, sport, conformation or if you choose, just cuddling up with you!

Please remember that obtaining a puppy should be a well planned event. It is not a decision that should be made quickly and without forethought and planning.

“Good things come to those who wait.” Don’t be surprised to find that you might have to get on a reservation list if you are serious about a pup. Please don’t be offended by all the questions we ask.

We want to be sure that you know what you are getting yourself into and we want to feel safe with the decision we make about where we place our puppies. As responsible breeders we are putting our years of experience, countless hours of work, our reputation, and most importantly our beloved puppies in the hands of our puppy buyers…we want to make sure everyone is comfortable with the choice.

We spend 9 – 10 weeks with our puppies, observing, interacting with and socializing them.  We love to see detailed puppy applications from  perspective buyers so that we can learn what the buyer is looking for in a pup and then we match the puppy to the home. Seldom, if ever, do we allow people to unwisely “pick” their own pup. We would not want a high energy field dog in a home that was looking for a more laid back pet, nor would we want a laid back pet in a home looking for a more active show dog. We spend time developing a trust between buyer and seller and evaluating our puppies for suitability in their new homes. All pups are temperament tested at 7 weeks and evaluated for working, show potential.

Due to the many emails, we receive, from those expressing interest in puppy availability, only those that send us a completed application, will receive a ~ detailed ~ response.
