Karesque Standard Poodles

AKC Breeder of Merit

We Raise Standards!

We go further  than just raising our puppies in our home; we know the importance of the early puppyhood development and we follow the Transformational Puppy Rearing program from conception to the sensitive period, developed by Dr Gayle Watkins.  The first four months of their lives are crucial to the dogs they become so we put our heart and soul into them.  
Our poodles are champions and compete in Agility and Trick Dog and FastCat.  They all thrive, living in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. They adore snow, have a keen interest in the wildlife and love companionably hanging out with us, no matter what we are doing. Our puppies are primarily owned as companions but some are involved in performance sports and even training to be hunting retrievers.
  Of course our poodles are all health tested for Hip Dysplasia, PRA, SA, Neonatal Encephalitis , VonWillabrands and more.  We also believe in keeping breed diversity and use the UC Davis VGL DNA testing in our breeding program.  
  We started out first as poodles lovers in 1992, we got two Standards as adults and were hooked.  The seed that started us on our current path was the puppy we purchased in 2002, Garcon (Safari's Moonlite Fever Boy CD).  Our first conformation poodle was his niece Jaya (Ch Safari's Promise of Karesque, CGC). We are members of the Twin Cities Poodle Club.

PUPPIES

SORRY, NO LITTERS PLANNED FOR 2022. Please check back about the plans for puppies in 2023. For now we are busy showing our girls and spending time enjoying our retired poodles. We raise a litter every year or so with puppies available for purchase to approved homes.
