What's New?

May 5, 2024 - Pippa and Westley, along with our past pup, Tazanna and our honorary poodle club member, Buck, competed in the Nosework Nerds CWAGS scent detection trial today! This was Westley and Tazanna’s first scent detection trial and they both did well! Tazanna got her level 1 title and Westley got 3/4 Q’s towards his level 1! He had to work through some scary noises in the one run he missed but he came through and was more successful in the two after. Pippa got to try level 2 and while she was her usual slow self she pulled it off and achieved her level 2 title! Buck competed in both level 1 and 2 and got every run!

March 24, 2024 - A weekend full of wins, both physical and mental, at the West Coast Ratters barn hunt trial! Our plan was to go in with zero expectations as this was both Daniel and Westley’s first trial of any kind and we wanted the experience to be positive more than anything.

Both boys surprised me by not only working through pouring rain, barking dogs, strangers, and waiting their turn, but Westley managed to get his Instinct title and two Novice Q’s and Daniel got both his Instinct and his Novice title including a High in Class score!

The second day we brought Carmela and Pippa as well, both of which had not done barn hunt in a long time. Pippa alerted on litter twice so did not get any Q’s but she had a wonderful time.

Carmela managed to navigate a challenging course and found 4 rats to get her Masters title!

We are so proud of all of our dogs for making it through the weekend and we hope they will only improve from here!

March 22, 2024 - We are lucky that we currently have more wonderful homes waiting than puppies we plan on producing!  This unfortunately means we have to close our waiting list to new applications.  If you currently have an application in, you will still be considered for future litters.  We will make another announcement once our waiting list opens again.

September 3, 2023 - Perdita’s puppies are now 3 weeks old! They are beginning to walk and play and eat solid foods. I will be shaving their faces soon so we can see if any of them are going to be lighter colors underneath! Some are looking lighter around the nose already.

August 29, 2023 - Introducing Dan Flashes! (Mostly Mischief’s My Exact Style) “Daniel” is a big brindle boy who we are raising up as a potential stud. He will be trained and evaluated over the next several months to see if his conformation, personality, and trainability are suitable for him to join our program!

If he does not meet our criteria he will be looking for a place to call home as a “starter puppy” with lots of training behind him! He has a lovely personality and we are really hoping he works out but if not he will make a wonderful companion or sport dog for a lucky home!

August 21, 2023 - Individual photos of Perdita's puppies! The black one has a chance to be blue or silver and the brown ones could be cafe au lait or silver beige! Excited to see these puppies grow and develop.
