Puppies are raised in our home in their own bedroom. They are handled every day and are exposed to normal household sounds - vacuums, pots/pans, TV/radio background, other standard poodle family members, and all that comes with a noisy, busy human family. We have a retired friend that lives with us so the puppies are very seldom left totally alone.
In most circumstances the puppies will have their dewclaws removed within the first few days of life. Due to the increased interest in NOT docking tails, some of our puppies will have their tails docked (at the discretion of the breeder) and some puppies will keep their beautiful, natural tails.
The cost per puppy for pet ("limited") AKC registration is $1,200. A show/breeding ("unlimited") AKC registration costs an additional $500 for a total of $1,700 to pre-approved breeders only. Puppy selection is based on the order of receipts of the non-refundable deposit per puppy of $300. The balance of $900 (or $1,400 for unlimited registration) is due two weeks prior to puppy delivery (if paying by check), or paid in cash at the time of delivery. If delivery occurs in the state of Maryland, state sales tax of 6% will be added to the cost of the puppy.
Deposits are non-refundable but are transferrable for up to one year from receipt toward the selection of a puppy from a future litter.
Receipt of a $300 (minimum) security deposit is required to secure a place in the selection process for a current or future litter.
See the pink box on the Details page to pay via PayPal. The 3% PayPal fee is added to all PayPal payments.
Raven Rock Standard Poodles has the right to first pick of any litter.
Scout was bred to Samson, a red sable male owned by Tina Law at LawPDoodlek9manor. Samson sired a beautiful, colorful litter mid-2018 with Morgan. Scout's litter includes phantoms, brindles and solids, all in shades of brown. Puppies will be ready to go to their forever homes at eight weeks old (late March 2019).
Spring litters coming. Stay tuned!
