Hi, I live in NW washington and am looking for a toy or small mini. This will primarily be a pet home, although I do enjoy training classes and I want the option to show obedience. The reason for a small poodle is that my hubby works away from home, and he complained I never came to visit when I had big dogs, so with a small poodle, I can take on carryon. The standard size carriers are 11" in height. Any color expect white or light colors. It rains a lot here therefore it can get muddy LOL All my dogs in the past have been very well trained, and my Venus, who passed away in sept :-(( , saved 5 people during her tracking carrier. We certified years back when we lived in Springfield MO.
Please be genetic tested, wonderful easy going temperment.

Thanks everyone.....

Hello and welcome!

It is much easier to find a large toy than a small mini, in my opinion. Plus, since you are looking to fly with your poodle, you really do want a toy. Minis for the most part are going to be just too big to fit under the seat per regulations. See this excellent website on traveling with your dog: In-cabin carriers » Dog Jaunt This particular link takes you to a page on the site that discusses a woman trying to fit her tall mini under a seat and all the steps she needed to take. It helps you get an idea of some of the barriers you will find when you get a dog above 10 lbs.

How far are you willing to go for a well-bred health-tested poodle? In Washington I know of Farthing Poodles. You can also check out Clarion and Sharbelle in California. There are a lot of toy breeders in Texas. Give us a bit more information and we can make better suggestions.

I would certainly look in other states, although with the Corona virus making travel, even for pet nanny, quite challenging. I will certainly check out Farthing and the others you mentioned. Thanks for the reads as well!! Thank you!
