Hello I am los angeles and we just got a red standard poodle. He has no name yet we are still fishing for the perfect name
LOL thanks , in the pics he has shaved feet we shaved his face monday i will take some pics and post probably next weekWELCOME! :wave:
I think he is darling! I love red poodles! Just curious, do you plan on
getting him a puppy clip? I just love shaved poodle faces and feet!
AKC = no partisOver there he doesn't need to be a solid colour either does he cause you guys can show the parti's? Excuse my ignorance cause I don't show, but I think over here they need to be solid - no white like on his cute little chest.
Yeah he is AKC we are waiting for his ped and will send it to UKC. I don't think there is a local club in my area which is crazy because Los Angeles is a big citySome American clubs are more "relaxed" about the colors than others. Last time I checked true parti-colors (more than 50% white) where not able to be shown in AKC, BUT I think in the USA they can be shown in UKC and CKC events.
AKC will also allow some tiny amounts of white on solid dogs to be shown...but I am not sure how big is too big and how small is okay.
Either way if he is AKC and you want to show him, his papers can be transferred into UKC which will allow him to be shown. I think...I am sure that someone will correct me if I am wrong!
I like the name Hawk or Phoenix for a red male! How about Fireman? LOL you could call him Sparky!
We will still see what happens with AKC , its just a small amout of white. My sister has already cut it off and you can't even see the white anymore lolYou can definately show him UKC but not AKC due to his color. (white on the chest) One thing I already like about him is his head. I also noticed right away that he has a good amount of under jaw and a long muzzle. Thats great! I seem to notice there's lack of under jaw in Poodles for some reason.
I can't wait to see some body shots and gate pics if your able to take them.
Also there are a husband and wife pro handlers in Bakersfield that focus on Poodles. I believe her name is Margie Sullivan. She handles Karen Sisco's Poodle's from Sisco's Distinctive Poodles in Bakersfield. Karen Sisco is a very nice lady and always was open to answer my questions even though I didn't purchase a dog from her. My Eli is a grandchild from her Mr Hollywood and Chablis.
Anyways, welcome to the forum and Id be happy to try and answer any questions you have about showing. Even though I haven't showed Poodles yet I have plenty of experience (first hand) showing Ukc and Akc with our former breed. My husband makes showing dogs look super easy (he's soo good) so if your ever down near Modesto for a UKC show let me know if you need a handler.
