Dew claws are so annoying. As a groomer these nails get forgotten about by owners and grow into the pads. I am glad my pup has her dew claws removed

That's what I've heard. I guess the responsibility it on the owner though, right?

I thought this video was interesting

I go up to my cottage in the winter, and its not uncommon for adventurous dogs to fall through the ice.

Yea... Most of the ones I see are flimsy and just wiggle around. I have seen some ripped off as well from getting caught in carpet.

wow - who knew??? Since we are not in icy water often (ever?), I am not too concerned about them being gone on mine, but a friend has a standard with them, so some breeders do leave them, and if you have a relationship with the breeder prior to the birth, thye might agree to leave yours intact. Do you hunt?

I just went through the hunt of finding breeders who leave tails and dewclaws on dogs, we got a silver poodle from a breeder in California, from Genteel Standard Poodles, very natural, everything is left intact on the dog.
Some other breeders are Autumn Shades in Ohio, Silken Poodles in Ontario, Harmony Hunting Poodles in Arizona. Sorry that these are not in the area you are looking for, they are just the ones that I know of. You'll have a better chance of finding natural tails with working, hunting lines overall. I contacted a few breeders in Canada and asked if they would be willing to leave tails on, none were. Some might be willing to if you pay for the dog ahead of time, but then you run the risk of that particular dog maybe not being the best match for you.
As for dew claws getting in the way, being ripped off blah blah, yeah, it can happen, just like with any other toenail. New research is showing that dogs use them a lot more than originally thought, to grip bones, take tight corners when running fast, all sorts of things. They are not the floppy unattached appendages like rear dew claws. A lot more breeders are leaving them on nowadays.

Sarah- I'm actually looking into getting my hunting license in January. A few of my friends hunt and it would be nice to accompany them, maybe even with a dog. But generally I just go for a lot of walks with my dogs (neither of which are currently poodles).

Brownlikewoah- Thanks for your post. I have heard of Silken before. I know Cantope recently stopped docking tails and dew claws. I don't intend to get my poodle for another 6-12 months. So I'm just looking around right now, trying to see what's the best option for me.

If you intend to take your poodle hunting you may be well served to find a breeder who desensitizes pups to loud noise early. Many breeders do so with all of their pups. Even if you do not intend to hunt with your poodle, it is wonderful to have a dog who is not afraid of thunder, loud booms and fireworks. Fang lay down and went to sleep at the fireworks display last fourth of July.

Good call. I'll probably take him out when he's young, shoot off a few .22 rounds and see how that goes.
