Default Pendragon Poodles, Ontario,Canada

I am not starting this thread to beat these people up. I think most people who go onto their web site can see what is going on here, but they must be selling pups like mad. They have whelped a litter of five red/apricot Standards on June 1st, another litter of nine on June 2nd, and another litter of 13 on June 13th!!!! Holy cannoli....that is a lot of litters in less than 2 weeks!!!! They also have six older pups who birthdates go as far back as May 2009.

Their prices are phenomenal too. Their pups range in price from $2,200 for apricot to $2,600 for darker toned which they call cinnamon. This is about $1,000 more than most other breeders are charging for their reds. Unbelievable.

I am posting this with the hope that if anyone who comes here sees this, they will shop around for a breeder who has one or two litters a year, and doesn't charge anywhere near these prices for their red pups.

Holy cannoli is right. I have a time with just one litter in 2 years. I can't imagine they get much attention.

I don't know anything about breeding Poodles, but I wouldn't have thought that different colours would attract different prices. That seems to be normal with Goldendoodles.

They seem to charge according to the shade of red that the puppies are now. So what happens if you pay more for a red puppy and when it gets older it turns out to be apricot. Do you get a refund?

I suppose people might say I was being nasty if I said the word "puppy farm" came to mind. Did you notice of the older pups, the ones in June and again in December have the same dam. So she had two litters in six months. That is Honey. And Tallulah had a litter in May and again in December.

Well there is one thing that breaks my heart.

The dam for one of the litters is 9 years old :(

I see no listing of health tests or any comments that they do health tests, they mock show dogs to make there home dogs look better.

And they say that they are no offering youngsters for sail for people who don't have the time to raise a puppy.
Is this just something they say to make the dogs that did not get sold look more attractive ? I would never want to sell a person a dog that does not have time for a pup. Does that not just mean that they don't have time for a dog ?

I can not Imagen having 3 litters with 21 pups then add the 6 youngsters who are for sale and the dogs they have now and according to there homepage they are more then 10.

I hope they have staff to help them with all these dogs.

Well I could go on an on...

Forgot one thing I would never want to buy a pup that has been neuterd/spayed before 8 weeks :S

Purely I don't think its nasty...well some might...

but it does raise the question at what point do breeders like this cross the line and become puppy mills...are they able to say they aren't a puppy mill because they keep all the dogs in their home?
its interesting to say the least

Best in home - not in show. And still charge those random high prices for dogs appearing to have no health testing done.

The reason for people doing the pediatric spay and neuter is because of unscrupulous buyers getting a dog on a non-breeding contract and then breeding it anyway sometimes to a another breed and sometimes just because they are not interested in registering the puppies. Reputable breeders do not want their puppies going to those homes.

They get a lot of publicity. CTV in Canada just aired an episode on them yesterday on a program called 'Breeder of the Pack' or something like that. They called the episode 'poodlemania'.

Seriously, what in the he** is wrong with Canadian TV producers knowing NOTHING about dogs????
