I am looking for a Standard Poodle breeder on the West Coast. I live in British Columbia, so would consider BC, Alberta, Washington, Oregon, Idaho. Something within a reasonable amount of travel time where I can drive and see them in person.
I am looking for an excellent breeder, one that health tests, breeds dogs with a quieter dispostion, raises them in a wonderful home environment, low inbreeding, excellent structure and soundness, confident and "poodly".
I would prefer a cream ( white ) or black. I am not sure what sex is considered more loving, and affectionate typically, but I would like a dog that is really cuddly and attentive.
I have an amazing home, I live on acreage, all chain linked fenced, my significant other is a vet, I have horses, am home all day, he/she would be a pet but I would like a show quality dog.
I currently have a chinese crested powder puff that is the best little guy in the world, but I really miss having a bigger dog. I have never owned a Standard Poodle, however, my best friend has owned them, and they are AMAZING. I was considering purchasing from the breeder she acquired her dog from, but ..... her dog ended up having some serious health concerns as he aged.
I know everything is not preventable as far as health, but I would like to be as careful and conscious as possible and eliminate the possabiity of being heart broken.
