Thanks! I'll do thatWelcome to the forum. You may want to start by contacting your local poodle club. They may have some contacts. I'm not in your area so not much help but I found this link Tidelands Poodle Club of Virginia - The Poodle Club of America,
Thank you! Do you mind me asking if you have any personal experience with either breeder?If you are willing to go a little further afield look at Scherazade/Linda Hamilton in New Jersey and Madela/Delana and Mark Severs in Connecticut. I understand the long wait too since I waited decades to have the right life circumstances for dogs.
Thanks, again this is very helpful!I have a dog from Delana (my boy Javelin). If you want to learn more about him I have a training blog about him in the performance training area of the forum. I know Linda a bit but have seen working obedience dogs of hers and they are well built and of good temperament. I generally don't make recommendations about breeders who I don't know personally or whose dogs I've never seen or met.
