Thank you to those of you who have kept us updated and sent pictures of the puppies. We love to stay updated and see the puppies grow, and know how they are. It's also a great way to share with your pup's siblings, and others who are thinking about adding a D and D Standard Poodle puppy to their family. 



Teddy's owners flew all the way to PA to pick Teddy up and take him home to California. 

Teddy's dad shared commented on Facebook sharing 

"I couldn’t agree more about Diane & Kim. They have the best Standard Poodles ever. After speaking with Diane and Kim by phone (from California where I live), I knew they stood above the other top standard poodle breeders I located on the AKC website. My Teddy is perfect in every way. A real champion. He is kind, gentle, fun, loving, caring, loves to play games, he’s super smart and a serious watch dog! All boxes checked. He’s healthy and robust. 70 pounds and fast as lightning. He takes care of his Daddies and we take care of him. Happy to share more or answer and questions. Just message me 🐩"

"D & D. Only the BEST ❤️ Teddy was groomed this afternoon. Looks like a million$$$. Tonight’s walk with his friends"

"Teddy loves car rides. Thx D and D Standard Poodles ❤️"


"You did such a good job with Teddy. He’s the most socially well adjusted dog I have ever seen. Thank you 🙏"


"Teddy sends love from California ❤️"


Teddy's owner commented to update his Facebook review 

"Here it is over a year later and Teddy is the most awesome little boy ever. He's outgoing, sweet, loves everyone and every dog. And, what a handsome fellow. I get stopped everyday... people ask me if he is a show dog... I say yes... he comes from a long line of show dogs! Teddy is really special. And, I am very, very lucky to have him 😁"

Teddy's first time to the beach


Teddy's owners flew all the way to PA to pick up Teddy, and take him home to California. 



Apache was a puppy born at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic shut down. Apache's future includes show dog and grooming competition dog. We look forward to watching his show career and in competition grooming. 


Apache's owner left us a recommendation on Facebook along with the photo below. Thank you very much!

"A few years ago, I noticed a gorgeous white standard poodle. She was stunning, and I asked the owner where she came from, and she directed me to D and D Standards. 2 weeks ago, I finally got the boy of my dreams! My pup is perfect in every way. D and D is an amazing breeder, they far exceeded my expectations and experience with other breeders. You can really tell how much effort they put into producing top of the line poodles. Everyone is absolutely amazed at his temperament, he has shocked everyone at how well behaved and socialized he is! I’ve been told by SEVERAL (and jealous!) people that he is worth every penny and then some. Finding a reputable breeder is rare nowadays, but they are excellent, I can’t say enough good things! My pup is a future show dog and grooming competition dog, and I am so proud to say he was produced by D and D!"

She also sent us the picture below along with "Look who came with us to work today!"


Shortly after getting Apache home his new owners shared 

"He’s doing great we love him! He’s really so sweet! He went potty outside, ate his food no problem, and he also didn’t get sick on the ride over. No whining or anything, slept through the night! He’s such a ham, he loves cuddling with us! He’s a little intimidated at first by the other dogs lol, but now he wants to play with them. He’s figuring everything out very quickly. Everyone loves him!"



Thank you to Max's owner who posted the following on our Facebook page

"I purchased the white poodle with red collar from Diane and Kim. He is wonderful. Has a loving personality, already know some commands and is much smarter than me. My friends have commented on what a great puppy he is. He even likes cats! Love him. Thank you Diane and Kim! I highly recommend getting a poodle from them. They breed and work with their poodles."


"Hi. Got a chance to take pics. Tried for the stump but he is too quick for me. Jumps off too fast. Hope you enjoy these.  "

"Ok.  Max is napping now.  He is too smart and too cute.  Love him.  😊❤️❤️🐩"

"Hello Diane and Kim!    

I just saw your e-mail.   I LOVE Max.   He is so smart and wonderful.  Forget the crate at night.  He sleeps with me in bed.  i am learning his potty habits and we are doing very good.   Only had 2 accidents and that was my fault for lack of watching him.  He is very, very good.   My cat Ben is slowly getting used to him.   Max is learning that Ben is not another puppy.   In fact last night Ben slept on the bed with Max and me for a while.     I will be sending you pictures. I have a stump of a pine tree that was cut down last year.  Max now jumps on the stump and then takes a flying jump off of it.  Want to get a picture of him on the stump.    He gets the “zoomies” in the morning and then in the evening as soon as it cools.  He just runs around so fast and is so happy.    Thank you for teaching him so much and for breeding such a wonderful poodle. 

I cut grass today and it did not faze him at all.   He is just wonderful.    Tomorrow he has a vet appointment with Dr. Matson from Highland Hospital for his checkup and puppy shots.    

Have a wonderful evening and again thank you again.   Talk to you soon."


"Thank you so much.  We are home. He slept most of the way. He is so good.  He has had his dinner. I think him and Ben will be friends. He is such a wonderful little bit.  Thank you fir the pictures.  I think he wants my cold pizza.  Or maybe my hand to Che’s on.  My life has changed.  Thank you.  🐩😊💕"

"Very happy!!!!!!"




"Thank you for everything."


"We made it"

"Portland tradition is to take a picture of the airport carpet when you land home "

"Thank you for trusting me with one of your amazing poodles."


Jett's new owners traveled all the way from OR to PA to bring Jett home.

Below are updates from Lulu's family


"Lulu says hi!"


"Thank you so much for today.  Lulu is doing great. She was very quiet on the ride home but perked up once we got out of the car.
  She ate really well when we got in the door.
  Potty training is going great so far. We’ve had one accident but we were on our way out the door when it happened so we were headed in the right direction.
    I just put her in her crate. She cried for a minute but then passed out - it’s been a busy stressful day for her.  She’s a total love bug and quite calm for a puppy.  We can’t wait for her personality to shine more as she settles in."




Happy first birthday Tootsie!

"First boat ride this puppy fears nothing fireworks lightning sirens don’t matter"


"She loves going in the stream down Behind our place I’m already looking into plans to make a stock tank pool for her"


Tootsie's owner shared that she's the "Most easily socialized trainable relaxed(when she hasn’t been wound up) puppy I have ever experienced. Completely different than the small versions of the breed. Kudos to you guys .It was meant to be that we found the best dog ever"


Tootsie's owners shared on our Facebook page "Kudos to Diane and Kim. Our new baby is gorgeous. The temperament and behavior of this puppy is nothing short of remarkable."

Thank you to Tootsie's owners for bringing her out to visit us at the local All About Dog's Day. 


Angel von Prancer & Brady di Zelos

We love seeing Angel and her owners. Its great get to see our local puppies on a regular basis. We see Angel a lot of grooming. A couple years lady Angel and mom brought home her new little brother Brady di Zelos. 

Spring 2019 Brady di Zelos joined Angel von Pracer and family!


"We have 2 of your amazing dogs. Our puppy is unbelievably amazing"


"Wait until you see how wonderful Brady di Zelos is coming along, our little guy is unbelievable and we are so in love with him."

"Great day with Brady di Zelos, he's fitting in so well. Not one accident in the house so far. The baby eats Angel's food, and Angel is inhaling puppy food. Kim Callahan thank you, Jim and I are thrilled with our boy"

"Puppy has a name Brady Di Zelos. Welcome home young man."

"I would like to introduce you to the newest member of our family. We are not sure of his name. Yes he's a Standard Poodle from D and D Kennels, Kim Callahan you did a beautiful job on his puppy clip"

Lola & Beaux

Beaux and Lola's owner shared the following photo to our photo of sister Gywn

"Beautiful like her sister Lola and 1/2 brother Beaux!"


Beaux and Lola's owner shared "I just love my Beaux and Lola!" on one of Facebook posts


Lola and Beaux's family also live in PA. Its great to have local puppies so we get to see them in the area, as well as visits for grooming and boarding. 

Lola joined their family first. Then they later added Beaux to the family. 



Phoenix not only joined his new owner, but has other dogs for family too. His owner trains and grooms him. 

" Merry Christmas Diane & Kim from Santa's newest elf! "


We ran into Phoenix and his owner at a couple shows - check out our Facebook video where she showed Phoenix in Harrisburg in rally novice, where Phoenix got his Rally Novice (RN) AKC title. 

"Hi Ladies!
Attached are some photos of Phoenix at his Advanced Puppy/Beginner graduation.  Everything was done off leash and he was awesome.  Almost every puppy in the class was born last July.  Isn't that something!  The Golden he is sitting right beside was born a day before him and his owner's birthday is the same day as Phoenix's.  Small world!

We have been working on all kinds of things, but the primary focus is obedience and rally.  I'm entering him in his first rally trial which will be the end of June.  We are a bit behind where I had hoped we would be because I have had some major issues with my one foot that prevented me from doing a lot of practice.  Sooo frustrating!  Anyhoo, we're back at it. 

And I just want to say that he is such a joy!  So happy and out-going and SMART.  You guys did a real good job of socializing and - getting him used to grooming, too.  He's in a puppy cut in these pics, but I actually took most of that off and he's in a sporting clip now.

Enjoy the pics.  I'll be in touch and soon."
"So right after I sent the last email I grabbed my phone, told everyone to sit and stay and took a few shots.  The obedience work is starting to stick with the little man!
(They all had Halloween bandanas earlier, but they had to go for Tana and Phoenix due to playing.)   They're a hoot together!
On a separate note, I took him to the club and he "helped" with my last two PK classes and had a great time.  So cute!  And he will be going as my new demo dog on Monday when the next session starts, so he's been learning those exercises.  Of course, Tally will still be there, too.   He will also start a separate foundation type class at another training facility in a couple of weeks. "

" And he's totally into the house routine, feeding time, bedtime, etc.

One great puppy Diane!  I'm so glad I met you at that show and got this little guy." 



Archie's family left us a wonderful recommendation on our Facebook page

" We brought our Archie home eleven days ago. He is wonderful! From the first day, he slept seven hours straight at night and was well on his way to being fully housebroken. He arrived knowing out to 'sit' and to 'come'. He's self-assured and eager to please. It is obvious Diane and Kim devote a good deal of time and energy in getting their puppies off to a great start. Diane has been wonderful to work with. She was quick to respond to questions in the weeks leading up to our bringing Archie home. When we picked up Archie from her, Diane spent nearly two hours with us, answering our questions, telling us about Archie, and giving helpful suggestions on raising him into adulthood. We are thoroughly pleased with our experience with D and D Standard Poodles. "


The night after Archie went to his new home with his new family we got our first update

" It was great to meet you yesterday, and thank you for sharing your wisdom and experience!
Archie did great on the ride home.  Last night he slept in his crate from 10:30 until 5:20 or so, without a single bark or mess.  I was home with him this morning, and I am amazed how quickly he seems to be adapting.
 I think we're off to a really good start.  We will keep you posted, and call if we run into any problems."

People stop us on the streets all the time to ask where we got him, and how beautiful & SMART he is. A few people are interested in knowing when you will have another poodle litter. And I hate to brag but he was just screened by both a veterinary and trainer and has been approved to become the youngest dog to be approved as a therapy dog and has been to to locations so far. We owe all this awesomeness to you!!!! We can not thank you enough."

We can't thank you enough for such a wonderful addition to our family."
