  • How much does a Standard Poodle cost?
    Prices of Standard Poodles vary according to the market. In Florida, expect to pay between $800 for a puppy from parents who have no proof of genetic testing and are not AKC or UKC registered, to $2500+ for an AKC puppy from AKC/UKC champion backgrounds and parents who have a CHIC registration and associated health clearances. Our puppies are generally $1500 for limited registration and come from AKC parents who are genetically tested clear (no copies) of vWB, DE, prcd-PRA and NEwS, with passing OFA hip clearances. That's $1000 less than a mixed breed doodle with questionable parentage and no health testing!
  • Is full AKC registration (breeding right) available?
    The short answer is yes, however we will not sell to anyone for the purpose of breeding "doodles." Our puppies are sold with Limited AKC registration (no breeding rights) unless it is otherwise agreed. Potential brood bitches and studs may be available for an additional fee, but it depends on the puppy and your agreement to perform health testing. Ask us!
  • Will you barter/trade/accept less/do a payment plan?
    In most cases, no. The expenses of raising, health testing, and titling the parents is costly, not to mention the cost of raising each puppy! Our reasonable prices for Standard Poodle puppies from health tested parents is less than many breeders charge for non-health tested parents, but it's enough to help us continue training, testing, and sharing these amazing dogs with families that will appreciate them just as much as we do! If for whatever reason a healthy puppy or dog is returned to us, we may offer it at a substantial discount depending on its' circumstances.
  • Have any of your puppies become Service Dogs?
    We have two puppies that are serving as autistic assistance dogs and two that serve in therapy settings - one for hospice and one in a wellness center. While we do not breed expressly for service work, with dedicated training our puppies are definitely up to the task.
  • Do you have a guarantee?
    Yes, your standard poodle puppy comes with a 26-month guarantee for hips and other congenital serious health problems. Details of our health guarantee are available in our contract.
