Hello,
I just joined the poodle forum. I’m looking for my first miniature poodle puppy and I’m very excited. If anyone can suggest a good breeder in California I would be very grateful.

Hey there, welcome to PF and congratulations on choosing the best breed in the world, a poodle in any size is tops. I am in the east so don't have much of a breeder suggestion for you, but I am sure someone will chime in with ideas.

Hi and Welcome from the Midwest. I'm not in that area to suggest any specific breeders but here's some links to look over til some local folks drop by:


https://poodleclubofamerica.org/find-a-poodle-breeder/
This link should get you to pages which direct you to folks within PCA who can help with breeder referrals for your desired area.

https://marketplace.akc.org/puppies/poodle
These are AKC registered breeders but review their websites thoroughly. Look for OFA, CHIC health testing info in the site. If not on the website, ask the breeder to provide all health testing results and links (this will be on the dam and sire fyi). In fact, do that with any breeder you make contact with. A quality breeder will not hesitate to show the health documentation.

http://www.poodlesonline.com/
"Poodle Breeders" Standard Poodles, Miniature Poodles, Toy Poodles Breeders Directory!
All the breeders listed here are required to do appropriate health testing in order to list on that site.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/477233365657056/
Breeders here all do appropriate health testing.

https://www.poodlebreeders.com/
Another site with multiple breeders listed. Use the same caution.

Most of us don't have poodles for the purpose of showing, they are our loving companions, but we are grateful to the breeders who do take the time and spend the money to show and health test their dogs so we can have our healthy and well bred pets.

There are some sub forums here where you can find discussions of breeders recommended, and some, not so much. They're listed at the top of Poodle Talk.

If you use the Search at the top of any page, use Advanced search for breeders in your area.

Contact a few breeders to introduce yourself. Even if they don't have or don't offer what you're looking for, it can be a close knit community. They may know where to refer you.

Welcome - how nice to be looking for your first poodle - they are an incredible breed. I am in the south, so no recommendations here, but I am sure someone will point the way.

Hi and welcome. My gorgeous mini is a silver bred by Morning Glory in Texas and Avery’s in North Carolina. Consider these breeders if the distance is reasonable.
