Greetings from Hawaii My family is currently looking to adopt a standard. Does anyone know of a reputable breeder in the area? Standards are pretty difficult to come by in Hawaii. We’re willing to travel between islands to pick up our pup.
Welcome zenny. I believe someone from the state of Hawaii joined the forum not long ago asking for information on local breeders. You might search the welcome area to try to find that person to ask if they have any leads on finding a reputable breeder. Other members might have leads for a contact person.
That’s exactly where I would start, The Poodle Club of Hawaii. There are great breeders in California, nanny transport arrangements that you can make. I know that’s pricey on top of the puppy price, so fingers crossed for local options.
don't be surprised if the local poodle club is unable to be that helpful. hawaii is a small place with very restrictive quarantine laws. if you can afford it, look to australia and new zealand. quarantine is costly and can mostly be avoided by importing a dog from those two countries, as they are considered to be rabies free. the cost of shipping might well be under the cost of quarantine.
