Red, apricot, cream, and black toy and miniature poodles in southern California.
If you love toy and miniature poodles as much as I do, and whether you buy a puppy from me or someone else, let's talk.
It is a privilege for me to announce that I am regularly visited and approved by the AKC.
This allows me to register my poodles with the AKC and raise poodles which typify their
desired description of the perfect poodle.
Only breeders who are compliant with strict AKC regulations are certified to register their litters with the AKC, proving they are pure-bred.
I would lose my AKC credentials if I ever let pet stores or a broker sell my poodles. I'm proud of this because I have personally approved who gets my poodles.
It is also my pleasure to offer two free services to my clients:
1. If you place a deposit on one of my puppies and it is too young to take home, I will deliver anywhere in the Southern California area.
2. Now you can learn how to groom your own poodle for free. When you come to pick up your poodle, I will show you all of the tricks and tips I've learned in my umpteen years of grooming to let you see how easy it is. You will learn which pieces of equipment to purchase (and which not to waste your money on), the good brands to choose, how to hold the equipment, any poodle coat style including the perfect puppy (AKA sporting) clip, and most importantly, how to keep your poodle happy and comfortable in the process. You can bond even closer and fall back in love with your poodle, not to mention gain fulfillment of doing it yourself, not to mention save the cost of an expensive groomer,
not to mention save time, and lastly both you and your poodle will suffer less stress by not putting them in someone else's hands.
(I've heard some unimaginable horror stories about some "professional" groomers.)
»»» Even if you don't have one of my poodles, I am also available to teach poodle grooming to anyone willing to learn how to do it themselves
in their own home, at their own pace, on their own poodle (poodles only, Please).
I will commute to you in Southern California as I am centrally located inland between San Diego and Los Angeles.
Please inquire about rates. «««
My book has Finally been published. It's called
How to Turn Your Dog into a horse
Using the 50+ years of experience I've accumulated in my life relating to dogs and horses, I compiled this book. It was written for all of the horseless horse lovers out there. The horse-crazy bug bit me early in life. As a 10-year-old, it was frustrating to only be allowed to watch horses from afar, so I turned to the next, most logical option, my poodle, Bambi. I started training him in the way I thought horses were trained, lunging at the walk/trot/canter, putting him over jumps, and even pulling my Barbie's horse carriage. My life was simply controlled by this horse-crazy gene and I was fortunate enough to learn as much as I could about horses. I realized there are just too many frustrated horse lovers out there, who are either afraid of the danger of working around horses, who never had the opportunities I did, or who are convinced horses are just too expensive. This book will help anyone with those frustrations, it will give your dog a job, you'll both get some exercise, and you will bond with your dog like never before. The book is available at this time at www.Amazon.com and www.Barnesandnoble.com, and when you qualify to own one of my poodles, you will get a free copy. (Poodles happen to be the best choice for a dog/turned horse!)
Check it out, and do let me know how it has helped you.
My miniature poodles were featured on TV in March 2014, on the show, Too Cute, on the Animal Planet channel.
The name of the episode is "Fluffy Pups and Tater Tots."

Life guarantee: I am aware that sometimes life throws its unexpected punches and you may find yourself unable to keep or support the puppy you have chosen from me. DON'T LET YOUR POODLE GO TO A SHELTER OR AN UNKNOWN RECIPIENT. Please contact me if ever this is the case and I will either foster your poodle free of charge in my home and find him/her an appropriate, loving new home or I will assist you in finding your poodle an appropriate home in your area. I guarantee this for the life of your poodle. I've got a passion for my poodles.
Why choose to buy from a shelter and not a breeder? A chance to save a dog in need? Sure. A cheaper price? Sure. What you don't get is your dog's medical and social histories, AKC registration or breeder support in all of your questions even after you buy your poodle. Be prepared for untrainable, unexpected social issues or major medical problems which can be expensive with no recourse. I've heard horror stories. Every time you choose a dog from a shelter, you support mixed-breed dogs. You are also supporting dead-beat dog owners who give up on their dog and throw its life into a stranger's hands (or worse). A reputable breeder will have the life guarantee written above. Shelters shouldn't have to be in business. Be proud to support your
Purebred AKC dogs.
