About D and D Standard Poodle Puppies

Our puppies are raised in our family home, including adults, child and other dogs. Our puppies get well socialized with both people of various ages and other dogs. Puppies get  used to hearing a variety of sounds from regular household appliances, toddler's toys, to tvs, to vacuum cleaners, to other animals making noises, to grooming equipment such as clippers, clipper vac, drummel, and air force dryer, and things like the lawn mower and or tractor, etc. 

We start grooming our puppies early on. We are professional groomers, and our business is on the other side of our property. Puppies start out being groomed in our home. When the puppies get older they do also get groomed at our grooming business. The puppies leaving home to go to our business can help the puppies get used to leaving home to go to the groomers as many dogs do. Puppies do also go to our business on a daily basis once they are old enough so this does also help to add to their exercising, socializing, getting used to leaving home, and more. What kind of grooming does this include you may ask. We cut their nails and or file their nails with a drummel. We have the puppies in a puppy cut - we shave the puppies' face, feet, a small portion of the tail, and sanitary area. Hair may also be trimmed. We brush their hair to ensure that it is nice and mat free. The puppies also get their ear hair plucked and ears cleaned. The puppies are washed and dried. Puppies experience drying.  Through this grooming experience puppies are handled/groomed all over and groomed with various types of grooming equipment that could be considered noisy and loud (which could be frightening or stressful for a dog not used to those sounds) the puppies are introduced to the grooming process and sounds before they even get to their new owners. Puppies are groomed on a regular basis as well as just prior to going to their new homes. Beginning grooming dogs at an early age and on a regular basis is good. Many dogs who are not used to being groomed may be more easily stressed during grooming, may not cooperate for their grooming which may also result in the dog remaining at the groomer for a longer time period and a higher grooming cost for their owner. By starting grooming the puppies at a young age and on a regular basis we have found this very helpful. Puppies should all be very cooperative for grooming when they leave us. We recommend they continue to be groomed regularly as this is good for the puppy for the future, as well as Standard Poodles do require regular grooming throughout their lives. 
Puppies also start going for short car rides. We like to start the puppies traveling in the car both in a crate and on the seat with dog seat belt so they are introduced to it before leaving for their new home, and whichever method their new owner choose to use. It can also be state law for you to have your dog confined to a crate or with a dog seat belt for traveling. 
It is good to start car rides early on. Sometimes some dogs don't go for car rides much, and sometimes they therefore associate car rides as a negative and or stressful event - some dogs even get car sick. We start taking the puppies for little car rides early on. That way the puppies start getting used to going for car rides.  


We also start training the puppies. This does include various areas of training. 


The puppies go out side to go potty. Puppies are started on crate training as we have found this is an effective method in house breaking a puppy, as well as keeping a puppy safe when unattended. Getting a puppy used to a crate is important for a new owner who may crate train their puppy, or have their puppy travel in a crate. 

We start manners training as well. 

We do also recommend that you follow up with enrolling your new puppy in some sort of puppy kindergarten class, AKC STAR Puppy, or similar class. These classes are very beneficial for both puppies and new owners. This way you can not only continue the puppy's training, but you can also continue socializing your puppy with other dogs and other people, and get them used to traveling as well.
