Callasterns Dazzling Vegas Showgirl (Dazzle) and RBIS BISS GCH Chrystal's Totally Chromed Out (Sterling) are due to be bred early July and will present us with a litter having the possibility of white/cream, blue and silver puppies born around Labor Day and ready for their new homes the week before Thanksgiving. Sterling is a stunning Platinum Silver dog with a personality and ring presence that justifies the name "Sterling". Sterling retired after winning his class at the prestigious Westminster Dog Show in 2014 . He is happily residing with his human family in Florida but took time out to return to the ring at PCA 2017 to win the Veterans class. Reservations with deposits and completed puppy pre-purchase questionnaires are now being accepted. After those are received contracts will be sent out for completion. Ultrasound today confirmed a nice big litter. I have room for 3-5 more in addition to those on my waiting list. Expecting 11-13 puppies. We are looking forward to seeing these gorgeous puppies!
Breeding only from AKC registered, extensively health tested adults - with CHIC certifications on OFA. Litters have low COIs. All puppies come to you with AVID microchip in place, tails docked, dewclaws removed and will have had early Bio Sensor Neurological Stimulation following Dr. Carmen Battaaglia's guidelines and the Volhard Puppy Aptitude Testing at day 49 by a certified tester. You can read more about these protocols online or see the Additional Info page for the names of the articles.
We follow and encourage Dr. Jean Dodd's limited vaccination protocols. We require buyers to wait until 12-14 months of age to neuter/spay their puppies.
Our puppies are weaned onto a natural, raw diet at 4 weeks of age. They are also introduced to drinking water at that age.
Our aim is to breed beautiful, healthy, happy and well socialized puppies. Callasterns Standard Poodles only breeds AKC recognized solid color standard poodles in black, white, blue or silver. Both pet and show quality puppies are available. All puppies are sold on Limited Registration with spay/neuter contracts unless specific arrangements are made in advance for show and performance prospects.
I follow and exceed OFA standards for health testing and my breeding poodles have attained CHIC certification status. I recently finished the VGL Diversity testing and color testing on Dazzle. Her VGL results have been made public on the Better Bred website as well as my Sire/Dam page on this website. Both Sire and Dam have their DNA registered with the AKC.
