Our Poodles' Health History
Standard poodles, for the most part, are healthy athletic dogs. However, as a breed, there are some health issues that can occur. We aim to produce as healthy a poodle as possible. That being said, a long time breeder once told me that when breeding (any animal); it's not a matter of if you'll produce a health problem but when. Breeding is always a gamble both with health and conformation. The most any breeder can do is make informed decisions and strive for the best.
I try to keep track of the health issues with my own dogs as well as those in the "family tree". I've listed the major situations with my own dogs and some of the dogs we've produced. I welcome any questions or concerns you as a potential owner may have.
