Our dogs show in conformation and are actively training towards agility, rally, obedience, scent work, and other sports. The Poodle is an exceptionally smart breed that enjoys a variety of activities. They are bright and eager to please. All of our puppies, whether show/performance or pet quality, are introduced to basic obedience skills, agility equipment, car rides, and regular grooming.
Preserving and improving the genetic diversity & health within Poodles is a high priority to us. Temple City Poodles has been actively involved in submitting our diversity results to BetterBred and working this those results accordingly to take a proactive step for the health of the dogs we love so dearly. We strongly encourage all buyers to seek out breeders who are concerned for and take proactive measures regarding the genetic health of their breed. In addition, we actively support and participate in other health research.
We have had past puppies gain their CH (champion) and GCH (grand champion) titles in the conformation ring, become therapy dogs, and many are excelling in agility, obedience, tracking, and other dog sports. The Poodle is a truly versatile breed.
Our puppies are born in our home where they are handled daily and introduced to grooming at a very young age. ENS (early neurological stimulation) and ESI (early scent introduction) begin at 3 days old. We follow Puppy Culture protocols to provide structure in our socialization practices and to mentally enrich our puppies, raising them to their fullest potential. They are well socialized with people, kids, other dogs, and become accustomed to every day life situations: meeting strangers, going for rides, walks, being bathed, etc. The puppies are generally ready to go by 8-10 weeks old.
We primarily have white, cream, blue, and silver Poodles. We may occasionally have other colours.
We do not always have puppies available, and plan litters sparingly to ensure that we are able to give as much as we can to each individual puppy. This often means our waiting list is long and wait times may be anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. Rest assured, the wait is worth it for the right puppy!
We are always on the lookout for those who are interested in co-owning a dog and/or learning how to show. If this is something that interests you, feel free to contact me.
