About Me

I am the 4th generation in my family to breed Standard Poodles,  I worked together with my mother for more than 8 years as Olive U Standard Poodles as we built an outstanding line of Standards, numerous champions, several Breed and Group Winners and even our beautiful Hodel who won back to back Best In Show and Reserve Best In Show and was our first to finish her Grand Prix championship, all of her awards were obtained through my grooming/handling and she was my pick of the litter.  In 2018 my mother and I decided to split the breeding program, and I would branch off with my own "kennel" name, although we still work closely to improve our lines.  In October 2018 after separating, I took my second bred-by dog to win two RBIS BBX back to back at only her 3rd weekend out, Brooklynn is still campaigning and I can't wait to see what else she will achieve.  I am VERY passionate about my dogs, they are my life!  I believe that quality, structure, health, and temperament all play a major roll in creating a true Standard Poodle, and none of these aspects should be neglected.  A Standard Poodle is one of the most versatile dogs around, they love swimming, retrieving, hunting, agility, conformation showing, most importantly they love being part of the family and interacting with their people!  Anyone who has a true Standard knows they are more like people than dogs!  It is vital for the breed to maintain this intelligence, confidence, and overall health and correct structure.  I believe in breeding for balance and consistency.  I only breed Blue, Silver, and White as I prefer to work with and perfect only a few select colors.  All of my dogs are health tested and most (if not all) are shown to their championship before breeding.  I stand behind my dogs 100% with a lifetime guarantee.  All of my puppies come with a collar, leash, health certificate, age appropriate vaccines, and a purchase agreement.  For the safety and integrity of our bloodline, all of our puppies must be spayed/neutered by 16 months of age.  I will only consider selling my puppies with full registration with co-ownership to a reputable, established breeder who performs appropriate health screening and shows in conformation.
