All of our parents are pre-screened for genetic health diseases, and most are tested for hips, knees, heart, and eyes. Puppies are examined by our vet twice before going to their furever homes, and our sales contract includes a one-year congenital health protection clause for our buyer.
We pay close attention to the American Kennel Club's breed standards on structure and appearance to ensure that we're holding back poodles to breed that conform to those standards. We look for good proportions, bites, etc. We're looking forward to getting into the show ring circuit when our children are a little older and our schedules permit.
Poodles are a generally very social and friendly breed; however, just like humans, each one has its own, unique personality. We select parents who exhibit the traits that we wish to produce in our puppies, and we're very intentional when deciding which adults to pair together.
We're very big on communication and transparency. When you decide to join the Klaus Poodles family, we send frequent updates about upcoming litters and stay in close contact throughout the process. We frequently update our website and Facebook group, and we're also available for questions even after purchase a puppy from us.
Puppies are raised inside our home and loved on daily. They experience many common household sights and sounds and interact with our adult dogs and my young children. This gives them the best possible start in life and sets them up to be well adjusted, outgoing adult dogs.
Even though we've been breeding for many years now, our learning never stops! We participate in several breeder clubs and programs, consult frequently with our reproductive veterinarian, and listen to some great poodle and dog breeding-related podcasts. We also enjoy educating our buyers, especially first-time puppy owners. Our puppy "go-home" folder offers everything from a Potty flow chart to information on pet insurance, and much more!
