Owner, Veterinarian, and Groomer Recommended Breeder
I have been breeding since 2010. My switch to breeding poodles happened in 2017. Breeding has been a wonderful journey that has connected me with many amazing families. Owner reviews can be seen at my Facebook page- Noir Poodles. I am also happy to give additional references from my veterinarian and groomer.
I work very closely with my veterinarian to maintain optimum health with my adults and to ensure every puppy that leaves me is healthy and ready to join their new family. Each puppy sees him for a puppy wellness exam. They have individual fecals done during their wellness exams. He also does the OFA health testing for my adults. His office is happy to speak with any of my potential puppy owners about the veterinary care my dogs receive.
My wonderful groomer keeps my poodles scissored beautiful. They run free in her shop on spa days, so she has plenty of time to observe their personalities and behaviors. My groomer loves having my babies in her shop. After one of their spa days, she said, "You've got an awesome crew." If you would like a reference for the well-mannered personalities of my dogs, their beautiful conformation, and the loving care they receive, I can think of no better reference than my groomer.
All of my puppies are started with Interceptor Plus. They are also started on NexGard during tick season. They are current with age appropriate vaccinations. Puppies that leave me at 9 weeks old are due for their next parvo/distemper shot at 12 weeks. The final parvo/distemper boosters are due at 16 weeks. Rabies is due sometime between 12 weeks and 4 months. I recommend getting the rabies shot as late as possible and separate from any other vaccinations. Puppies that are with me past 9 weeks continue to receive age appropriate vaccinations, Interceptor Plus, and NexGard (when needed).
