Question Avalon Standard Poodles

Hi everyone,

I would just like to get opinions on this breeder. She seems responsible to me, but I am by no means an expert which is why I would like a second opinion. Here is her website:

Avalon Standard Poodles

Thank you for your input,

Megan

Oh yes, she has been breeding for 20 + years. She and her husband are veterinarians. I adore her. She owns the sire of my Stella :-). You would be lucky to get a pup from her. She also does a lot of holistic treatment. Stella has been on tx for breast cancer with vitamins per recommends for one year in complete remission. why do you ask?

Did you read on her site that her son is fighting cancer of the spine?

Her dogs are gorgeous. I'd love one of her silvers!

Thank you for your reply. I am curious to know because I am hoping to purchase a dog from her sometime in the future. Like I said, she seems like a very good breeder to me, but you can never be too certain since people can be deceptive on the internet. It is good to know that she is not one such breeder

Megan, I am certain that you would be 100% happy with a pup from Avalon. Not only will the dog come from health tested parents who are champions, it will be beautiful and sound in temperament. Mary is also so helpful and would be a great resource to you as an owner. Are you wanting to get a dog for show, agility, therapy work, or what?

I'm sure that I would be happy as well, hopefully I meet her standards as an owner Mostly, I want to get a companion dog that I know is healty and sound in temperament. I would like to train my dog as a Canine Good Citizen so that I could take him/her on visits to nursing homes and hospitals. I think that agility would be fun to learn, but I don't think that I would get competitive with it.

We just picked up our new baby from Mary last weekend. Mary has been wonderful to deal with in so many ways. We had a fourteen year old toy poodle and were considering getting a puppy from her. Our toy's health went downhill very fast and we put the new puppy on hold. She was very understanding and seemed to care about our older dog as well. Our new baby is fourteen weeks old and white and is a doll. She already fits into our family like she has been here forever. Everyone that see's her comments on how pretty she is and what a pretty face she has. She prances when she walks like she knows she is special. Ok, I'll quit rambling for now, but I would deal with Avalon again in a heartbeat. We are in love with this little white ball of fluff.

I think its experiences like that that speaks volumes about a breeder!
