About Our Poodles

"Pedigree indicates what the animal should be.
Conformation indicates what the animal appears to be.
But performance indicates what the animal actually is." -Anonymous

 

All of our poodles are family raised with excellent temperaments and sound health.  They are screened for numerous orthopedic and genetic diseases by a multitude of tests and examinations.  They all compete in performance and conformation sports.  Pedigrees, health reports, and AKC title certificates prior to 2010 can be found in the Photo Gallery Pedigrees/Reports/Certificates section.  All recent health reports and title certificates can be found at www.facebook.com/piccolospoodles.
