Red Companion/Working/Performance poodles

Cinnfully Sweet Standards passed the AKC kennel inspection in August 2016 …   Yes I know we live in a home, not a kennel, and our canines are our pets and family members first and breeding canines second, but they have to call it something, so they call it a kennel inspection (FYI, a lot of the places they inspect ARE kennels, large operations, unlike us, who are very small), and we passed our inspection with flying colors.

Also at the beginning of 2016 Boo Boo Bear was able to, on her 6th month birthday, in her very first show, win breed, then group, making it all the way to best in show.  :)))   And on that same weekend she gained enough points and wins to receive her UKC Championship.    We ended 2016 with Boo Getting her UKC grand championship, winning a coveted reserve best in show to top it off.  She is now known as “Nat/Int, UGRCH RBIMBS Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrive a Cinnfully Sweet”

We started 2017 out with Chai gaining her championship and that ever sought after reserve best in show.  She is now known as “Nat/Int, UCH RBIMBS CinnfullySweet Blazing Sedona Sunset”. Mid 2017 Cinnfully Sweet Standards moved to five beautiful treed acres in the NOR-CAL gold country.

Some of our puppies are service dogs, a few are therapy dogs, and a couple of our puppies owners are braving the intense training and have agility dogs, we even have more than a few canine models, and several show dogs (Larue is momma to 5 UKC champions and 3 UKC grand champions, and grandmother to one grand champion and on champion…  so far.  I’m sure many more to come).

We are very proud of each and every one of our puppies!  Even if they are not titled on paper but titled in the loving companion department by their great families

Welcome to Northern California, home of cinnfully sweet red standard poodles

Welcome to the home of Cinnfully Sweet Standard Poodles.  We are a small kennel, breeding and home raising puppies.  Our focus is on health and companionship.  Our goal is to improve the breed, but also to breed sweet pups with temperaments suitable for therapy dog certification.  We try to do this through extensive health testing of our breeding dams and sires, early and extensive socialization of our puppies using the *Puppy Culture program, and only breeding Our bitches and stud to those kennels who uphold our high standards and do their best to better the breed structure and temperament wise.  Our puppies are born in our home, in their own personal puppy room, and we are there for the entire whelping process.  When the puppies are old enough, they are exposed to any and all sights, smells and sounds that are needed to properly socialize a puppy.  One of our goals is for each and every puppy to meet at least 50 different people before it even goes to its forever home.  Plus our research has brought us to the realization that over vaccination and early spade and neuter could be shortening the lives of our beloved canines.  Therefore we encourage a minimal vaccine protocol and do not encourage spade and neuter until after our beautiful puppies are fully grown.  We hope you enjoy exploring our web pages and drop downs that follow, and as you can tell, we are transparent in every aspect of our raising and socialization of these precious puppies.  Through pictures, videos, web cam, and personal visits you can fully see each and every aspect of our breeding program.   Now how many breeders can say that.


Now for a wee bit of “red” standard poodle history.

Before 1980 there were no red standard poodles.  Yes there were reds in the miniature and toy varieties but not the standard size.  In the standards there were Apricots.   I was not there but I have I spoken to Ester (minarets poodles, good friend of Janet Blannin who was *Palmares poodles) and the history I have researched from poodle pedigree and hearing from other breeders is that Palmares and Shangri-La thought that Red would be a great addition to the standard poodle color selection.

First and foremost I must mention that my wonderful matriarch Larue, who is 7 short generations away from what some consider the beginning of the red standard poodle, owes much of her beauty, especially her long stunning poodle face, to Janet Blannin who bred Larue’s mother Paris and the generations behind her all the way back to “Rusty” AKA Palmares E Pluribus Unum the red male miniature poodle who brought the wonderful RED color to the standards .  I feel Janet made the greatest impact on the red standard poodles as we know them today.

Following are a few kennels that have made a mark on the red standard poodle.

Palmares Kennel.  Janet Blannin who was Key in the development of the Red color in the standard poodle size passed away 02-15-16.   Although the Palmares name lives on.

Shangri-la kennel.  Ilse Kong passed away in October of 2005.

Majestic kennel.  Joan Mistkowski started with Shangri-la reds.  She passed away in 2009, her daughter took over the kennel and she too passed away in 2009

Minarets poodles.  Ester Underkofler still breeds, shows, and titles her poodles in among other things agility and obedience proving that standards are more than pretty faces.

Leatherstocking kennel.  Barbara and Stratfod Deitch were successful in breeding top show quality standard poodles as well as therapy dogs.

At this time there are many breeders trying to breed the ever beautiful deep red standard poodles that are conformationally sound enough to show, sweet enough to be therapy dogs, and smart enough to be hunters. I would like to think that my small kennel will do all that and more.
