Our Standard Poodles are naturally reared and bred for Excellence and a Purpose!  As natural rearing breeders, our goal is to build a foundation of excellence upon breeding for true health – strong natural immunity, sound, correct structure, exceptional temperament, beauty and intelligence. And while there is no animal (or human being) that is completely free of genetic problems or disease, we have found in 30 years of feeding a raw species appropriate diet, eliminating vaccines (except where required by law) and chemicals, health testing, and careful breeding, that natural rearing can and most certainly does decrease health related issues.

For us, these practices go beyond champion titles and looks; they reach to the core of true natural health and longevity of future generations.

“Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise,
risking more than others think is safe,
dreaming more than others think is practical and
expecting more than others think is possible.”
