They have beautiful dogs. Their female Katrina wins a ton of best in shows etc and took the variety as a puppy at PCA last year. Also did Westminster too. They are all health tested and Kathryn does lots of obedience and other sports with her dogs too. She is also the president of the Poodle club of Alberta. Very dedicated with nice standards and mini's. I would highly suggest looking into their dogs. I think she just had a litter the other day too. There are very few mini's showing in Alberta either. Katrina is usually the only one. She may be the one entered in the show you go to. Good luck!

It was Kandask! I got to talk with Natasha, the co-breeder. She had a lot of dogs she was showing so it was just a nice little meet & greet. She wants me to fill out their puppy form on the site and keep in touch.
She had two mini bitches there but only one showing (Katrina). The other was Gossip who's picture isn't up the site so it was nice to see her as well.
I'm pretty sure this is who I'm going to go with. I'm not in a rush (which makes her happy) and a lot of the things she was saying about how they like people to raise their puppies are things I agree with anyways. So far I'm not having any issues with them at all but I do have more questions for her now that I've had time to think.

Well I've been back in contact with Kandansk because I'm feeling some dog fever (not pupper fever because I've never raised a puppy and am not looking forward to it!!) and was in danger of foster failing if I didn't focus on the future!
They're doing a mini breeding in the new year but they didn't tell me who (maybe they haven't decided yet) so we'll see who they're breeding and how many bitches they get and how many people are on the waiting list and etc.
Shall see, shall see.

I took a look at the website and it looks like my Cali shares some bloodlines with "Diesel" and maybe with "J.Lo". I say "maybe" because I'm not at home this week and can't recall much of Cali's pedigree. Cali came from Noteworthy and I know she and Diesel have Swayze "AM/CAN CH Minstrel Der Letzte Tanz" in common. The Noteworthy mpoo's have quite a few Kasalland dogs in their lines as well so it's possible she's related somewhere to J.Lo.
Sorry, got off track there. LOL It looks like this breeder really does it right as far as health goes so I just wanted to add something about temperament since it also tends to be somewhat inherited. From what I've seen, the mpoos from Noteworthy and Kasalland are top-notch temperament-wise. Cali is confident, smart, and wonderful with kids, adults and other dogs. I am really impressed with how stable her temperament is. I'm always getting comments from people that she's nothing like a miniature poodle and I keep telling them that this is what a miniature poodle is supposed to be like!
