Upcoming Naturally Reared Standard Poodle Litter Due

From Our heart to yours –

Upcoming Naturally Reared Standard Poodle Litter Due January 2021:


Genteel Poodles and Winters Wind Poodles have come together to become what we lovingly call “Sister” Breeders.  It comes from a mutual respect, friendship and belief system that is infused in our breeding philosophy and puppy rearing practices.

When Genteel Poodles went through a tragic setback a year ago; the two “sisters” collaborated in getting Genteel Poodles a fresh start.

Dr. Jeanette Thomason and Karen Winters are thrilled to be connected, not only as friends but dedicated breeders of naturally reared Standard Poodles of excellence .  

What does this mean for you, our potential puppy families?  You have more puppies to choose from and the knowledge that your new family member has been reared with the same love, care and practices!

Welcome to our family!

Selene to Chianti – Puppies Due January 2021

This breeding is with Winterswind Sister of the Moon and Winterswind Buio Chianti

These two exceptional Poodles are our “New Hope” at Genteel Standard Poodles.  Selene is highly intelligent and intuitive.  Calm and cuddly but can outrun her house mates in a game of Zoomies any day!   She has the perfect service dog temperament and personality.

Chianti is a perpetual puppy with his clownish and silly personality while being athletic and serious about what ever we ask of him.

We are expecting reds, browns and blues and possibly silver beige, apricot or cream (and maybe even a couple of parti colors! )

So many times we hear people say, “I am only looking for a pet,so it doesn’t matter if the breeder is not breeding for conformation or working ability.”

But it does matter! Those of us who love and are committed to the breed, have a responsibility to support and safeguard the unique versatile heritage of the Standard Poodle and their ancestors. Breeding or buying “just a pet”from any breeder with puppies available will not do that.

We raise our puppies using Puppy Culture*, early scent introduction*, and the rule of 7*

Companion, Service Dog, Working Dog, Show Dog????

Our Standard Poodles excel in all for categories. Owners who appreciate and utilize their dogs for not only a  family companion but also a service dog, conformation/show dog, performance and even hunting/working dogs, value the finest quality of the Standard Poodle … that they can do it all!  Our Standard Poodles are bred to first and foremost to be highly intelligent, even temperament companions and family members.

Many of our puppies have also been shown, become service dogs, therapy dogs, earned performance titles and hunting titles.

Our Standard  Poodles can do it all but at the heart of our dogs and our breeding program, they are superb companions; with the temperament suited for family life…gentle with the children, farm animals and house pets, all the while being highly intelligent, sound in health and structure and with a wonderful SENSE OF HUMOR!

All companion/pet puppies are sold on limited registration and with a spay/neuter contract unless otherwise noted.

*Puppy Culture is a complete program of over 50 protocols for puppies from whelping box to new home that is scientifically proven to greatly improve outcomes for puppies! From early neurological stimulation, to aggression prevention, to potty training and leash walking and more, it’s all part of our socializing and enrichment program for our puppies.

*Early Scent Introduction -A study was done over the course of seven years by stimulating the olfactory sense of puppies from the age of 3 days thru 16 days. This study proved that puppies who participated in the ESI (Early Scent Introduction) placed higher in field trials, and accomplish higher placement as much as three years sooner. While we are not training our puppies specifically for field trials, we are introducing ESI to our puppies in case they may need the scent skills at the highest levels possible as adults, to detect changes in body chemistry of their owners, specific scents of an environment in tracking, or  K9 nose work, etc.

*Rule of Seven (7) -The Rule of 7’s helps to create a dog that does not stress as easily and that is more accepting and adaptable to new stimulation and situations.

Puppies are $1,800.00 – $2,500.00

A $500.00 non-refundable deposit is required to hold a puppy. Balance must be paid in full before each puppy goes home.
