I ran into this sight tonight,it was great to learn more about my poodles. we are in the process of opening A Upper class kennel with a vet's office and Grooming shop. I own 4 Standard poodles..I love the Rich Red,And black. We went to the PCA This year for the first time..I want to show/But I wouldnt want to be a judge. ha it would be to hard for me ..So many beautiful baby's out there ! There was 1 Red standard Poodle there..she made 3Rd place . At the PCA that was great!! I am not a heavy Breeder,and I believe in All the health factors and testing will more than likely never stop.I dont believe in breeding for money..I support Our Kids,I dont believe a sight that say's clear by parentage..We do not believe in Mix Breeding..We do believe to better our breed and show them off...we are working for great conformation in the reds..everyone has a choice on color,But Temperment and health is where it really is !! (I never believe in gossip) Untill i get to know the facts!!!
