Default South Ridge Standard Poodles - Louisiana

I'm curious if anyone has any experience with South Ridge Standard Poodles? I spoke with Kim on the phone the other day, and told her my wife and I would be looking to get a standard poodle in a year or so. She told me a little about her health testing and encouraged my wife and I to come down and visit anytime we would like. She doesn't have any puppies available right now, but offered to help us find some quality standard pups if we were looking to purchase soon - she has some contacts that she helps promote and she knows some breeders to definitely steer clear of. All in all, she seemed very friendly and was glad to answer any questions I had and also encouraged me to call her up if I had any more questions come up. I did a search on here for "South Ridge" with no results, but I thought I would still check and see if anyone had done business with her or had any other experience with her.

I cannot say yeah or neigh. The website provides no real information. There are no health clearances listed, no titles that they work their dog in any specific field, no pedigree info, and I couldn't find a single "south ridge" poodle listed on Poodle Pedigree.

I searched the OFA database and cannot find any record of these dogs having any health testing.

Well bummer, based on that should I begin to look elsewhere? On the phone she mentioned some things about health testing, but it was a little over my head at the time. From our conversation, I can tell she is definitely focused on breeding quality dogs even if she hasn't taken the right avenues to prove that.

The Poodle Club of America website confused me a little bit, but I think I contacted someone who is going to email me some breeder referrals for Louisiana. I'm also open to any suggestions you guys have.

If you do decide to talk to her again, you can ask for copies of the dogs testing. You can also ask if she does anything to prove her dogs. I think there's a breeder on here in Louisiana.

Yes, I have seen that there is a breeder on here from Louisiana - NOLA Standards is who I'm thinking of. I originally overlooked them because I got the impression they deal primarily, if not only, in reds. A red isn't particularly what I was looking for, but come to think of it.. I'm not real sure what color I'm looking for, haha. I guess the important thing is that they have been tested and are healthy.

I'm sure she would know about the breeders in your area. You might ask, even if you're not interested in a red.

I would contact Tabatha Waters of NOLA Standards and/or Maria Guerra Salpietra of Cadeau Poodles. Both are located in Louisiana and have worked together.

Cadeau poodles standard poodle and poodle products - Home

It can be hard, as a pet owner, to sort through the good and the bad. It's great that you are doing your research. I can assure you that Tabatha and Maria are both responsible breeders that can help you find another responsible breeder even if they do not have something for you.

If you are in Louisiana, you would be remiss not to contact Tabatha or Maria. I believe Maria breeds blacks, so between NOLA and Cadeau, you have all the colours covered but white and brown.
