Sheila has the artistic eye. She can pick out the beauty and the dignity that a Poodle must have.

Our special socialization program is unique and highly successful. Our Poodles have that "air of distinction" as stated in the breed standard. Our Poodles are very in-tune to our needs and with willingness and extreme intelligence they aim to please.
Poodles were recognized in Germany and known as the Pudel, which means "to splash in the water." Poodles are built to retrieve birds from the water. Poodles are great water dogs and are valued because of their intelligence and are very willing to please. The Poodle's ability to connect with people is like no other breed. Poodles have hair and do not have dander like other breeds. This makes them great pets for people who have allergies to fur-bearing animals.
