about

SPFL Puppies

 

We do things a little differently at SPFL; we welcome you into our home using technology for the entire birthing-rearing process. And we are happy to answer every single one of your questions. 

All SPFL moms and dads have passed OFA exams for  hips/eyes/cardiac, received their CHIC certification, and are fully up to date on their health testing  (including annual eyes and cardiac renewal). We complete DNA testing for every identified Standard Poodle genetic disease plus ~200 other genetic diseases. You can click the links on each dog’s individual page to view their results and testing dates on OFA.

All SPFL parents have been proven in conformation – to demonstrate that they meet the breed standard. With a structurally solid foundation, poodles can do almost anything! All SPFL parents are also proven in other activities such as performance sports to demonstrate their versatility. We follow AKC’s recommendations to build performance lines on proper conformation and breed type lines.   

Contracted buyers get nearly 24/7 access to their puppies and can even watch the birth (if they want to). You will be able to see the conditions in which your puppies are raised nearly EVERY SINGLE MOMENT. You will be able to observe the Puppy Culture and Avidog protocols LIVE in action! You will become part of our household for the duration 🙂

Each litter gets its own PRIVATE Facebook group where I share tons of photos and information, do Live events – and all members can ask questions in a safe and protected environment. Each litter family becomes very close knit through this group, sharing their photos, experiences, training tips and best practices and they typically remain active for the life of their SPFL pup. 

In their go-home pack filled with supplies and toys, families are provided with a detailed record book and copies of all vet bills: tail docking and dew claws, 6 week immunizations, and 10 week immunizations plus any incidentals. The book will also include your pup’s pedigree, AKC registration information, microchip information and so much more! And our team of breeders, professional trainers and handlers support you for the life of your SPFL poodle!
