Is it hard to find smaller standards? We have been looking around and it seems all I can find are large standards being bred... I would love to find a Standard no bigger than 22". Any suggestions?? Our favorite colors are apricot, red and brown.

I know that in CA Tiara sometimes have really smaller standards. She is very pricy though. You can check Astoria also, and Grandeour has usually very balanced dogs. Females are always smaller , so you might insist on getting female and the smaller one in the litter and be pretty safe than in getting standard that is to your liking. All 3 breeders have almost exclusively blacks and whites , but are of superb quality.

Never forget that you can always contact Poodle Club of America for a referral

Standard

Clubs always know what litters are "on the ground" and what reputable breeders have available pups. Nice breeders will always give you further referrals to their colleges that have pups available and even call around to find what you are looking for.

Best of luck in your search !!!!

I have a Red Standard from Lori Silverthorne at www.redpoodlepups.com and I had a wonderful experience with her! Her breeding stock is right in the size range you're looking for and they're beautiful poodles! Trillium (another member on here) has 2 pups from the same father as my boy, Dugan, he's the most amazing boy with a phenomenal calm temperament! Good luck in your search! :clover: (btw - Lori's ships all over North America)

Heather- her dogs are exactly the size I've been looking for... It looks like I just missed a cute red litter! I'll have to contact her and see if she'll be planning anything else red this year.

I would really prefer an apricot over red... I know most people are all about the red, but I love the apricot and I don't seem to be seeing it often. Do breeders not really breed for that color, is it just not that desirable among poodle lovers?

Akbirdy , you will find a good apricot faster than a red.

They are very sweet... and the perfect color for me. We wont be able to bring a puppy into our home until December. We plan to be away from our home most of November on vacation. I would really like to find a good breeder that is planning for a little this winter that I could get on a waiting list for.

I have to say those pictures almost make me want to cancel our travels and hunker down with one of those cuties! :)

Wishpoo- thanks for that info... as I get closer to dec I'll contact them if I haven't yet found a breeder to go with. I have thought of just doing as you said with a female and then see if they have a smaller female.

I've had several people tell me our family would be better suited with a male though? That the males tend to bond to the whole family rather than one person like a male does? What do you think? I'm not so sure as my pets growing up both males and females picked their "person"

Here's the deets on that litter I think

Fabulous litter of apricots and reds born 7/28/2009. Available to show and performance homes, as well as companion homes, are 5 males and 2 females. The sire is dark apricot BIS CH Lidos Tequila Sunrise CD TP (CHIC), and the dam is CH Lidos Chili Pepper, a red. This is a very special litter. All testing is completed and normal.

I know absolutely nothing about them, but maybe this breeder would be within your vicinity.

Others who know more about the apricots/ reds might know something about them. :)
Lumiere is also a good breeder she had a litter with Terry from FarleyD poodles but I am sure they have been sold by now since I believe the puppies where born in June.

Haha, just took a quick look at their website and there's an available older dog with a clip that really made me laugh. It's like his nose is shaved until it's close to the end then there's more full hair. Anyone know if that's actually a poodle clip?

It's Skippy, near the bottom of the page.

Its a dutch clip lol they do look funny in those clips
