We are looking for families who want a truly healthy puppy that will first and foremost be a companion and family member and if possible, to be active with their Poodles, willing to try new activities (such as lure coursing, agility, barn hunt, etc.) Our goal is to place our puppies with families that are like-minded. They are first and foremost our loved companions, however, we enjoy taking them out and showing off their true abilities and character. We are very proud of the fact that we have several puppies that are now service dogs or therapy dogs!
The Reserved List for our Spring litter is Full at this point. However, a back up list may open once the puppies are born.
If you are interested in being on our waiting list for a puppy from our Fall 2021 litter, please email us and send us an application.
Puppies or Young Adults
We have no puppies or young adults available at this time. Our Reserved list is full for our Spring litter due the end of January 2021.
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!
Our puppies are Naturally Reared & Raised With Puppy Culture protocol

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.
We have no dogs available at this time to Guardian or Co-Owner homes
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.
