I have not had a poodle in my life for several years or been on PF for several years. lol In the past we had a standard and a toy along with other breeds. I have done therapy work with some of my dogs. We are hoping to add a toy poodle to our family that will eventually be able to do therapy work. Although I did a lot of research finding my last toy poodle breeder, my dog developed a good deal of medical issues. I am interested in using Paul Redding in MD this time but his puppies will not be ready until December. I live in New England and wanted to know if anyone had any input about getting a puppy in the Winter or a puppy from Paul, for that matter. I am worried about potty training and social interaction during cold weather.
