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.
It is my pleasure to offer two services which I have yet to hear anyone else specializing in:
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.
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 "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 miniature poodles were on TV, on the show, Too Cute, on the Animal Planet channel.
It could re-air this year, so stay tuned!
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.
