Thank you, Liz!We have a few people here who are really good with identifying kennels, but I'll start you off with two names I see mentioned here often: Jacknic and Rivers Edge, both in Michigan. Even if they don't have litters available or are too far away, they may know someone closer to you who has availability.
I got my poodle from Dubois and had a great experienceI am interested in a standard parti poodle and I'm wondering if anyone has experience with DuBois in Illinois or Pink Begonias in Iowa. Looking for a reputable breeder in the Midwest - family companion dog. Thanks!
Great question. I'm a layman to dogs, but as a mom to two I don't feel like dogs should be bred often. This is very helpful feedback and food for thought. Thanks!One of my neighbors has a DuBois poodle. Sadie is very sweet . . acts like she's up for a romp with my boy when we run into them on walks, but we haven't managed that yet. They are not big on showing (title some of their dogs), but I've become ambivalent on that, as long as a dog is from health tested parents and structurally sound.
I believe that this breeder is 'first come, first served' for puppy placement. It would be worth a discussion to see if they do puppy evaluations at the appropriate age and would recommend a puppy based on your priorities.
They tend to breed often. Yet there are show breeders who also do this. How important is that to you?
I am just a Dog Mom who owns a Dubois parti poodle who is our family companion dog. He's 10 months old, and he's a wonderful dog, smart, trainable, got him at 10 weeks and was pretty much potty trained. He responded well to the crate too. He loves people, other dogs, and just wants to sit in your lap...all 62 lbs! The breeder Tari has information on her website what certifications and health checks she provides. I have not had any health issues or problems with my boy! Tari was wonderful to deal with, and very receptive to any questions you have. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask!I am interested in a standard parti poodle and I'm wondering if anyone has experience with DuBois in Illinois or Pink Begonias in Iowa.
