ABOUT OUR POODLES
We breed Regular, Toy and Mini Poodles with solid-coloured coats, phantom coats and party coats.
Our Poodles are active, intelligent dogs. They are known for their steady calm nerves, high emotional intelligence and hardy constitution.
Poodles make wonderful companions and do very well if treated as part of the family. They are very people-oriented and may suffer from separation anxiety if left alone too often. Poodles are generally not aggressive and thus are fine with other animals and children. The smaller the poodle, the more careful you must be to teach children proper handling and playing, so for small toddler aged children mini size Poodles are the better options. Poodles must have adequate training or enough attention to avoid any unwanted behaviour
We breed Poodles in Miniature and Toy size three times a year. The wait time for these pups is normally up to eight months as they are in high demand, therefore it is essential to be on the wait list.
Poodles come in many colours some colours we breed are listed below
This and red were two of the last colors recorded for this breed; so they are the newest and quite interesting. An apricot can produce a red. Some apricot Poodles are so light that they appear to be cream, however you will notice a red tint to the hair. A true apricot poodle will have some points or black spots on their skin.
This is a diluted (faded) black. All blue Poodles are born black and then "clear" (lighten) as the pup grows.This often happens within the first year but this change can take place as late as 2 years in some cases. For this reason, many blue Poodles are registered as black. The outer coat of a blue poodle is usually as dark as that of a black, but hairs at the root is a mix of colors. The amount of each color depends on the age of the dog. In middle-aged dogs, medium brown predominates. True blue Poodles will have black points and dark brown eyes.
A brown Poodle is a deep, dark color and in no way can be confused with Cafe Au lait which is much lighter. Pure brown Poodles must have liver points and dark amber eyes. Brown is created by the bb gene, as opposed to the BB gene of black Poodles, and therefore will have no black pigment anywhere on the body, including the eyes and nose.
A true black Poodle is a deep ink black. The dog's coat will have zero blue or silver tinting and not have any white or silver guard hairs. The face when shaved will be deep black, as well. A true black will not "clear" or "fade". Blacks will have black points and dark brown eyes.
This only became an official color in 1980 and now many breeders in Canada have come together to form the Apricot Red Poodle Club. A true red will have black points.
A true silver Poodle is born black and "clears" by the age of 2. However, you will know a true silver by the age of 6 weeks, when the face and paws "clear" and the rest of the coat will follow in suit over the next year or two. Silvers will have black points and dark brown eyes. This color is a diluted gray, caused by the silver allele V gene.
Most white Poodles are a pure, snow white. However, some breeders will dub a white tinted with apricot or beige as being white. A bit of black spotting is acceptable on a white, however there should never be any ticking in the white. The ticking gene is a totally separate gene that makes the coat appear dirty.
While a Poodle can be born gray and stay gray, it is also not uncommon for a black Poodle to turn gray at the age of 4-5 years old.
These Poodles will have black points; you'll know that a Poodle is cream and not Silver Beige or Cafe au Lait if his nose is black. It is the Cch gene which causes an otherwise brown Poodle to be cream.

Poodles are notorious for their intelligence and ease of training. They are lively, active, funloving dogs with a sense of the ridiculous. Poodles thrive on attention and can develop bad habits such as nuisance barking if ignored or left alone.
The smaller poodles can be aggressive to people outside their families or to other dogs. They should have early socialisation to other people and pets and a firm hand in training. Poodles can be protective of their families and homes.
