I have been breeding for over 25 years and enjoy many aspects of it.  My favorite part is nurturing these puppies/kittens so that they are ready to go home. I research the health and temperament of any new dog/cat I bring into my home to use for breeding.  I will not breed overly timid or aggressive animals. I am always very honest about the quality of the animals I place explaining both the good points and any points I think the new owners should know about.  I never encourage a prospective owner to purchase an animal that they aren't ready for or is not suited for their environment.  This is not just a business to me; it is very important that my animals go to a safe, happy, well-adjusted home and that each personality is paired with that of its new parents.I also require in my contract that if, in the event Purchaser is unable to keep a puppy/kitten purchased from me, it will be returned to my possession.  My animals are very important to me. You can view details in our Health Guarantee. 

While I am best known for moyen poodles, I also have Aussiedoodles for sale.  Visit our Puppies and Kittens section to learn more.
