We read a ton of misinformation out there about Standard Poodles
I would like to clear up a couple misconceptions, that are most common:
NO, it is not normal, for Poodles to routinely have bloat or torsion.
Can be a genetic predisposition, poodles can also be at risk if not free fed or on RAW.
There is little need, for the very invasive "tacking" surgery
for Poodles with clear lines, free fed or on RAW diets and with consistent routines.
Bijou Poodles, we own, are 28 years of being Bloat and Torsion free.
Our Poodles are calm, loving couch potatoes inside, and Athletes outside
We have spent 28 years selectively breeding, for health and calm, sweet temperaments
Breeding Purebred Poodle x Purebred Poodle, ensures the temperament, ability, looks
that they will be 100% non-shedding and that they will be hypoallergenic.
Breeding another breed, to a Poodle, does not offer you the same assurances.
The Poodle is not like waving a magic wand, to create the same results, as purebreds.
LASTLY, every breeder "SAYS", our Poodles dispositions are wonderful
our Poodles are Champion Lines or Show Quality, Healthy or are Smart.
Anyone can basically 'say' anything they want to, without proof.
Proof by form of Titles achieved.
~ Talk is Cheap ~
Bijou Standard Poodles PROVES OUR POODLES, by
EACH of our Poodles achieving Temperament Titles, Performance/Working Titles
and of course, Conformation (Show) Titles. Doing all the above means we also have
an amazing relationship, with each of our Poodles and they enjoy our time together. EACH of our Poodles have also passed all 12+ OFA and DNA health clearances
Bijou Standard Poodles really does
"Walk the Talk"
Why would anyone settle for less ?

An average day in the life of Bijou Standard Poodles
As Ethical Reputable working dog owners, we will not own any more poodles than what we can fully care for.
This means owning only the number of Poodles at a time than we are able to care for and personally train and work daily.
Our pups are ALL raised in a home, not in a kennel which you can view on our MANY videos taken since 2006.
We only breed on occasion, with future goals in mind, which is constantly improving on our dog's progeny
and each generation to produce our next loving Companion, Champion, Service or Working Dog
by combining lines in various ways that will in the future to produce our ~Total Poodle~
(Poodles in the Summer)
Because we can't keep every puppy that doesn't meet our strict criteria
for a show/breeding potential, puppy people can enjoy the benefits
of obtaining as near a breed standard "ideal" as we can get
with the darkest intense colours we have achieved and of course the
amazing calm sweet temperaments that we are so world famous for
out of healthy and tested parents
who have a Championship ~AND~ a Performance Title (Beauty and Brains)
and completed all their OFA and DNA health testing.

Breeding is an expensive "HOBBY"....my goal is to produce my next Champion, Working Dog Partner and Companion.
This Hobby is a study in genetics, possibilities, potential, filled with many challenges and few rewards... Conformation/Show Titles we accomplish are a physical assessment tool achieved by Breeders that is done by Professionals Performance Titles we accomplish are a mental assessment tool achieved by Breeders that is done by Professionals Health Testing we complete is a guide for Breeders to breed towards eliminating and avoiding health problems. Breeders working towards producing a "TOTAL DOG" will use ALL these available tools at their disposal. ~ No Excuses ~
