Swift Water Standard Poodles
* Quality Not Quantity In The Solid & Multi-Colored Standard Poodle *
We do not support the cross breeding of our poodles with other breeds, therefore you will not find "Designer Dogs" being offered for sale from our home.
Our puppies are born and raised in our non-smoking home as loving family members, being raised with other dog's and several kitty friends. Our puppies are whelped in our bed-room and then moved into the living area at 3-4 weeks of age. Adopting a canine companion is a serious commitment and we expend a great deal of time and care in matching the appropriate homes to one of our fur-kids. The puppies are ready to leave for their new homes after 9 weeks of age. Our puppies will have been temperament tested at 49 days of age using the Volhard’s Puppy Aptitude Testing to help assure we are placing them into homes best suited for their individual temperament's. We introduce them to Clicker Training while still in the whelping box starting at 3+ weeks of age within days of their first meals, and continue with short daily lessons until they leave for new homes. The pups will have been clicker trained to sit for food dish and not jump up as their initial training and then collar & leash training before leaving for homes. House Breaking is introduced as soon as the pups are showing signals that we can read to bring them outside to "potty", normally about 5 weeks of age as the weaning from Mama begins. Crate Training is initially introduced at 4-5 weeks of age using an open door crate in their sleeping areas and their outside play areas., and then a closed door crates by 8 weeks. We have introduced some of the harder parts of puppy-hood using all positive reinforcements, if you follow our daily routine your pups potty accidents will be slim to none when you bring them home.
Our interest in one of our puppy owner's does not end with the sale of the puppy. We enjoy and encourage the continued contact with all owners of our pup's, our interest lasts for the lifetime of the dog. We will continue to help with any questions or problems that may arise with your puppy into their adulthood & their senior years. Owner's of a Dog Daycare & Learning Center, we are always available for boarding & daycare for our puppy buyers as well.
Our puppies are Registered with the American Kennel Club, they will go to new homes with limited AKC registration & pedigree, veterinarian health certificate, current vaccination record appropriate for their age, microchip and de-worming (We fecal test starting at 2 weeks, rather than automactically de-worming). An item with the scent of their momma and siblings on it will accompany them into their new homes. We follow ** Dr. Jean Dodd's minimal vaccination protocol for our pup's and our adult dogs. We also prefer holistic healing modalities, as needed. **Dr. Dodd's updated 2013 vaccine protocal.
Our puppies have been assured the best possible nutritional start. We feed Merrick & Earthborn Holistic all natural dry kibble diets as well as a raw diet. Our adult dogs & pups are given GNC daily Multivitamin's as well as Salmon &/or Coconut Oils daily.
We aim to improve upon our Standard poodle's with each litter we breed. Our focus is on diverse, lower COI pedigree's with a goal of strong healthy immune systems, sound temperament's with a solid Working Gun-Dog structure. By health testing our dog's prior to any breeding's we are hopeful to produce longer lived family companion's. Our litters are planned well in advance by researching the "whole dog", to include their temperament, health and conformation. Each litter is planned around Quality Not Quantity.
Our goal is to produce well conformed, excellent tempered dog testing clear of genetic problems for the ultimate in family companionship. On occasion our poodles may bless their owner's in the AKC/UKC show rings, obedience and as performance poodles. Our adult's & puppies have shown working minds for Hunting, Scent work, Service & Therapy work, but their most important job will always remain our family companion's.
We guarantee our pups for genetic health issues that are prevalent in Standard Poodles. Companion puppies are sold with spay/neuter contracts with limited AKC Registrations. On occasion, we may have an exceptional puppy that we feel will make a great show prospect. Show quality pups may be available on co-ownerships until all genetic testing has been done to the breeder’s satisfaction, and the dog has reached two years of age. Contact Bonnie for more Information.
