Default I am looking for a miniature Poodle in or around Montreal, Quebec, and will travel to

Hi,

We are a family of 6, I have a child who is high anxiety and it was recommended we purchase a dog as a way of relieving stress. School is starting now and we would be ready to purchase one immediately or as soon as possible, and hopefully no later than September. Chocolate, or black would be preferable.

We decided on the miniature based on the fact that we are 6 people and we want it to minimize the impact it will have on our space or traveling, a miniature wouldn't prevent us from doing anything and we could just get up and go anywhere.

As well my wife has severe allergies to pet dander and saliva, but has show a lot of improvement after 1.5 years of allergy shots.

Does anyone have a breeder to recommend that is reputable, yet affordable? I don't need the parents to be champions, I just need an affordable pet that is healthy, microchipped, and has had the necessary deworming and vaccinations, health certificates, and guarantee.

Purchasing within Montreal or up to 1-3 hours of driving based on price would be possible.

Hello and welcome !

I live near Montreal too. I don't know any breeders off-hand but have you considered an oversized toy ? Miniature breeders are harder to find and you might have more luck with a toy breeder. An oversized toy would be like a small miniature.

Merlin is oversized in height, but has a small bone structure. He's a little over 6 pounds. You can find oversized toys that weigh 8-10 pounds.

Thanks for the suggestions. With 4 young kids (8-12), I feel safer with a slightly heavier dog.

I have no personal knowledge of this breeder of miniatures, but I see she is in Montreal area and has a new litter born.

Thanks for the link, in fact I had reached out to them, but it's not guaranteed they will have a pup available and the pricing is out of my range at $2100CAD, and they will only be available in 8 long weeks.

My first two poodles (female) were Standards, but on the small side - 21" or so at the withers...43 pounds.

Would a small standard work for you? Some are smaller yet than mine were. Probably more breeders than there are of miniatures.

I know nothing about your family other than what you have shared. But I am wondering .... is getting a poodle really a good idea for you?

Poodles are very sensitive and they pick up on any stress that is in the family. If you have a generally safe and stress-free family life with just one child who is anxious, and if you have time for a puppy, then adding a poodle puppy might be a very good choice. But if your family life is filled with stress, then adding a poodle might just make things worse. Puppies -- especially poodle puppies -- need safe happy environments if they are going to grow up to be happy confident adult poodles.

The other concern I have is your price restrictions. Everyone wants a healthy dog that has a rock-solid temperament. But it sounds like that will be even more important for you than it is for most people. Well bred poodles generally sell for something around $2,000. And getting a well-bred poodle from a reputable breeder significantly increases the chances that you will get a healthy poodle with a good temperament. Good breeders are very careful about which dogs they breed and they select for good temperament. You might get lucky and find a wonderful poodle with a fabulous temperament that you can get for a low price. But almost all of the temperament problems that I have heard about come from large-scale breeders who sell at lower prices. So if I found a poodle for $1000, I'd be at least a little bit worried about what I was getting.

I don't mean to rain on your parade. But just wanted to throw out those concerns. Hoping that everything works out well for you and your family.

Oh I would love a larger dog, but it's just too difficult, we are already squishes in our minivan, the dog really needs to be able to sit on a child's lap without it being an issue.

I purchased a mini from "the poodle puddle" in Ontario. With 4-kids you need to ensure that they will not step or any way accidently hurt a mini puppy. This is my first mini and I was surprised at how tiny he was when we picked him up at 8 weeks. My kids are older so we did not have an issue with being gentle, but I would be concerned if your kids are young.

The Budgie is still alive after 6 months and he likes to chase our toes, the dog will be just fine.
