Our commitment to Standard Poodles is to breed in genetic diversity while maintaining and increasing their best qualities - wonderful temperament, intellect, health, proper structure and longevity. Why is genetic diversity so important? Due to the effects of a “genetic bottleneck” in Standard Poodle breeding caused by the very wide use of five stud dogs in the 1950s, the breed’s gene pool is significantly limited. Lack of genetic diversity has led to a high risk of autoimmune diseases. My goals in breeding are for, wonderful companion Poodles with good health, temperament and structure. With the advancement in science and the dedication of many breeders, we now have amazing tools to help make better choices in breeding quality diverse dogs. Thanks to UC Davis and Betterbred, breeders are able to reduce auto immune diseases by using these tools. I have worked hard with mentors and researching on what matters most in keeping the breed moving forward. My goals are to breed healthy diverse Poodles who improve the health and longevity of the breed. Poodles who make wonderful companions and have a purpose. We are also committed to preserving their useful dew claws and natural tails. We are located in beautiful Bend Oregon.
