Exculsive Silver exquisite Standard Poodles. I started showing,grooming,& breeding Silver Standard Poodles in 1965. My husband and I have a small show home. Our pups are from our Dual Ring (Breed & Obedience) Show Dogs,that have been genetically screened, and raised in our home. The inbreeding COI is about 2.14%- 5%, since we have gone to a different State for most breedings, and have Imported.This type of breeding is VERY Expensive. Our girls are usually 5 yrs. old before the 1st breeding, so we know they are healthy before they are bred.  We strive for Good Confimation, Health, & Temperament. The pups are handled from birth. They recieve early neurological stimulation, housebreaking started at 2 1/2 wks.,crate trained, separation trained,Obedience started,Temperament Tested at 7wks, & well socialized. Some of our pups have gone on to earn: Championships, Herding, Hunting, Obedience,Agiltiy,Rally,Therapy Dog,Water Certificate titles,Sheep Herding,Barn Hunt, & Nose Work titles. Most become loving,devoted companions. We had a genetic advisor,do no inbreeding, and occasionally have a litter in White & Silver.  NO BLACK, Partis, or Designer Dogs !!!

Many of our pups have been shipped to families throughout the US, Canada, & Czech Republic.  Pups are Temperament Tested and placed accordingly to the lifestyle and desire of the family they are matched to.

I have served in many capacities in the clubs I belonged to. When Certification for Groomers came about in the '80s, I became one of the first 50 to become Certified. I also design & create jewelry of pets- portrait & performance themes available. "Enameled Pups"(R) is a registered Trademark of Terr-if-ick Flair, Inc.

  The photos of the puppies are of Silver puppies,NOT BLACK PUPPIES. I do NOT raise BLACKS!!! 

It takes Silvers 3 years to clear the dark color from their coat. A newborn Silver pup will have white tuffs underneath the pads of their feet and white toenails.  At about 4wks. a gray halo will start to show around their nose. When they are clipped at about 6 wks. there will be a stark contrast of Silver on the face, feet, and base of tail and the rest of the coat will still be dark. At 8wks the toenails will have gotten pigment in them, and they will turn black.   We do not have any pups available at this time. All pups have been reserved.

If you would like to reserve a pup for a repeat breeding Aug.2021,please contact me. Best time 2-7PM Central time.
