Providential Poodles follow the Poodle Club of America (who sets the Poodle guidelines for OFA/CHIC) for health testing Standard Poodles. Specific tests performed with results are linked within each Providential Poodles' profile. Our puppies are completely raised inside our home, NEVER a kennel or 'yard'. This allows for only 2-3 litters per year as each puppy is nurtured to its individual potential.  All puppies receive Early Neurological Stimulation during their first two weeks and are socialized methodically using Puppy Culture protocols so that each individual puppy will reach their full potential. We begin house training, crate training, grooming, leash, and overall manners. Providential Poodles puppies are a delight to bring home. Typically, Providential puppies join their new families at 10-weeks-old.  If a family is a novice to puppies, we can discuss extra support or keeping puppies for a few more weeks. If a family is a show/sport home, we can discuss sending puppy home at 8 weeks. Puppies will be fully examined by our veterinarian Dr. Laurie Johnson They will be vaccinated following Dr. Dodds protocol unless otherwise agreed upon (NRBA).  Puppies will be Temperament Tested by another poodle breeder at 7 weeks old. Final puppy picks will be confirmed at this time. Limited AKC Registration (no breeding rights) is included with each puppy unless otherwise specified. We offer a health guarantee for genetic/inherited issues, and five-years for hips, assuming families provide appropriate vet care, excercise and nutrition for their puppy. 

A deposit of $300 will reserve your puppy. Deposits can be made via PayPal, check or money order.  Once you place a deposit, you may come to meet the parent(s). Puppy placement will be determined by analysis of the puppies temperment test with the applicants lifestyle. Applicants usually have 1-3 puppies in each litter that would fit the applicants home. If a puppy would fit multiple homes, then the order of deposit would be considered. Deposits are non-refundable after the puppies are 8 weeks old, after applicant has had ample time to decide to move forward with the matched puppy.  Balance is due on or before pick up.  

Doodling does not match our breeding goals as Preservation/Diversity Breeders of Standard Poodles. Our goals are to breed healthy, happy, structurally correct Standard Poodles through health testing, using Better Bred genetic matching software and demonstrating the versatility of our Poodles through competing and obtaining titles in a variety of venues.
