I'm trying to get a standard poodle for my son to train as a service dog. We finally have the money, but we need to purchase, or at least pay for and get a receipt, before the end of the year or we lose the money in our FSA account. I know most poodle breeders require deposits in advance. I'm trying to find out if there are any reputable breeders in (or close to) Florida that might have availablity now. Thank you.

I don't have specific recommendations for you but I'll copy in some links I keep handy for breeder quests. I'll also add links to a couple of threads re service/therapy poodles.

Several of our member's poodles are service dogs so I hope they'll pop by and offer their insight.

In the meantime:

This link should get you to pages which direct you to folks within PCA who can help with breeder referrals for your desired area.

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.

All the breeders listed here are required to do appropriate health testing in order to list on that site.

Breeders here all do appropriate health testing.

Another site with multiple breeders listed. Use the same caution.

Most of us aren't breeders and don't have poodles for the purpose of showing, they are our loving companions. We are grateful tho 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.



This thread is about therapy poodles but there's some good information here re searching for a service or therapy poodle
