Just a little update as to “what’s going on” here at Genteel Standard Poodles. Lace is maturing beautifully – (Sofie X Tristan) and while a character and being a typical puppy, she is testing us at every turn, she is so sweet, cuddly and wanting to please!   We have plans to get her CGC certificate some time this year!

Dear past and future puppy owners, I loved your puppy first. I thought of you – future owner, years before you even realized you would one day have one of my puppies.  I planned for and cared about your puppy long before you started thinking of adding a Poodle to your family.  I thought and prayed about your future with that puppy; before you even knew there would be one. There were hours upon hours spent researching lines for the grandparents and parents of your puppy, going over breeders and pedigrees and health records, choosing not only my own companion but looking for a dog that...

  Today the puppies turned 4 weeks old! They met their first people outside of my husband and me with one of the “people” being a lovely young child who is learning how to gentely interact with a puppy. She and her parents will be back in a couple of weeks to see how well we can match up the perfect puppy for their family. The puppies did amazing and everyone had so much fun! They are still being exposed to at least one new toy and one new experience every day. One of their more recent new exposures was to a litter pan with paper litter to go potty in – so much cleaner and...
