I have found a breeder but she doesn’t have children...Best advice would be to meet or speak to breeders if you can - look for titles on the dog, meet dogs, see their program, see how they describe their dogs and if someone would be willing to match based on temperament not first come/first served, or colour and provide ongoing support. See what they do with their dogs.
Even as a spoo lover, I would prefer a PWD from an awesome breeder to a spoo from a poor breeder. My own dog's breeder I liked partially because she had children, meaning my dog was well exposed to kids prior to me bringing her home and if I had kids, I would have trusted the breeder to chose a dog that would be good with kids.
I am considering a few different very similar breeds
or a second poodle as a second dog - my decision will likely come down to which breeder I trust more.
Edit - oh, and if you are still worried, set yourself up for success by finding a good local trainer before you bring your puppy home, to help prevent any issues before they begin and support you through the sometimes challenging first year.
Also thanks for all the tips. I think that’s a good idea to line up some help in advance. I’ll definitely research someone out when I know I’m getting a puppy. I think it’s also down to finding the right breeder isn’t it.
