Purchasing a puppy
Standard Poodle Puppy  

Classically Suited Standard Poodles prides itself on breeding puppies who are  outgoing, confident, intelligent, structurally sound and healthy.

 

All of our breeding bitches and dogs are genetically tested to ensure that they are free of the genetic defects prevalent in Standard Poodles.

 

Our breeding pairs are selected based on their pedigrees, conformation, and temperament. It is our mission to better the Standard Poodle breed.

 

Our puppies are never kenneled. Single litters are home raised as a part of our family. Since Classically Suited Poodles is a subsidiary of Service Dogs International, basic obedience training, socialization and housebreaking starts for all puppies at 6 weeks of age. By the time you take you puppy home (from 8 to 12 weeks of age) your puppy is well on its way with both obedience training and being housebroken when you take it home.'

 

All of our puppies are AKC registered and come with a health guarantee. The puppies are wormed at 2,4,6 and 8 weeks. Their tails are docked and their dew claws removed. They receive their first shots at 8 weeks of age.

 

Your puppy will leave us with a puppy pack to help get you started with your new puppy.

 

HOW MUCH DOES A CLASSICALLY SUITED STANDARD POODLE COST?

 

Classically Suited Poodles pet quality puppies range in price from $650 - $850.

 

 We are frequently asked the question, "If your puppies are such high quality, why do you sell them at such a reasonable price?"

 

We are aware that Standard Poodle pet quality puppies frequently sell for between $1,000 and $1,200. We are also aware that most of these puppies do not have the quality of pedigree, the structural soundness, or the temperament of our puppies.

 

We sell our puppies at a reasonable price because we know that we can select the families that we sell our puppies to. Our commitment to our breeding program is to select homes in which our puppies can grow to be the trusting, loving, socially well-adjusted dog that they were bred to be.  Selling our high-quality puppies at a reasonable price, gives us that ability.

 

All pet puppies are sold with Limited Registration. Our show quality puppies range in price from $1,000 to $1,500 and are sold with Full Registration and Co-Ownership.

 

Purchasing a puppy is the same as anything else you purchase. You get what you pay for. This is not the time to hunt for a bargain. Your new puppy will be a member of your family for its lifetime, so you'll want to make a wise investment.

SELECTING A BREEDER

 

Following is the AKC criteria for selecting a breeder. Classically Suited Poodles supports and adheres to all of the AKC recommendations.

 

You should buy your puppy from a responsible and well-respected breeder. This cannot be stressed enough. Responsible breeders are concerned with the betterment of the breed. For example, they work on breeding healthier dogs with the appropriate temperament for their breed.

 

Find a breeder who is knowledgeable and make sure you are comfortable with them. Establish an excellent rapport with them. Your breeder will be an excellent resource and breed mentor for you throughout the life of your puppy. You should be encouraged to call the breeder if your dog has a crisis at any stage of its life.

 

Once you select a breeder, screen the breeder. Ask to see at least one of the parents (the dam or the sire) of your puppy. See how the dogs in your breeder's home interact with your breeder. Are they friendly and outgoing or do they shy away? The responsible breeder will be screening you, too, looking for the best home for each puppy.

 

Observe the premises. Is the house/kennel clean? Odor free? Dogs and puppies should be clean, well-fed, lively and friendly. Look for signs of malnutrition such as protruding rib cages or illness such as runny nose/eyes, coughing, lethargy and skin sores.

 

A responsible breeder will test their dogs for genetically prevalent diseases within the breed. They will be happy to discuss these and any other health issues with you.
