At this time there are no planned breedings until the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020. Dazzle has been spayed and is happily ruling the household. Future breedings with be from her two daughters - white girl Kissy (Callasterns Dazzling Kissing Queen of Hearts Dazzle/Sterling litter (9-3-2017) and new baby black girl Abby (Callasterns Absolutely Worth Waiting For) (4-1-2018). Kissy has begun her health testing but will not be bred until after final testing of hips and elbows at 24 months old. Kissy and Abby will both be CHIC certified in their health testing and the search is already begun with a future Kissy breeding first. Stay tuned!!
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 with the addition of scent work, I follow Puppy Culture socialization protocols and utilize the Volhard Puppy Aptitude Testing at day 49-51 by a certified tester. You can read more about these protocols online or see the Additional Info page for the names of the articles.
I follow and encourage Dr. Jean Dodd's limited vaccination protocols. Buyers are required to wait until 12-14 months of age or older to neuter/spay their puppies. It is recommended that a preventative gastroplexy tacking be done at the same time.
Our puppies are weaned onto a natural, raw diet at 4 weeks of age. They are also introduced to drinking water at that age and begin to go outside to potty.
Our aim is to breed beautiful, healthy, very intelligent, 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 with additional requirements and higher pricing. All Full Registrations will be on a first position co-owner basis.
I recently finished the VGL Diversity testing and color testing on Deezel (CH BLACKJACKS DAZZLING LEGACY) 3-26-2016. Deezel is Dominant Black and is now being offered for Stud Service. Contract available upon request. His VGL results have been made public on the Better Bred website.
I do already have a growing waiting list for a future puppy from Kissy.
