A Little About Us..
"If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man."
-- Mark Twain
We do not support the cross breeding of our poodles with other breeds so therefore, you will not find "Designer Dogs" being offered for sale from us!
We do not sell to brokers or pet shops!

Lifestyle Poodles is situated on five acres of quiet shady acres in sunny Florida located between Daytona Beach and south Jacksonville. Our country setting is ideal to maintain health and vigor for our Standards. They enjoy training, romping, playing and just being dogs. We are NOT a kennel facility but a small hobby breeder.
Our dogs are members of our family and live in our house along with us. Our puppies are also home raised with nothing but tender loving care and lots of socialization from birth. It is very important to us that we find just the right homes for them. We strive to produce happy, healthy, quality puppies with wonderful temperaments.
We sell our AKC puppies with Limited Registration and a contract that protects the new owners as well as us.
There are some people who refuse to buy a dog without full registration. My question would then be, are you buying a family pet as you say or, are you misleading me? I have no intention of any of my puppies ever going to puppy mills, to owners who want one litter or to owners who want to breed one time because they think it's better for their dog. Spaying and neutering in both male and female, prevents ovarian, cervical, uterine, prostate and testicular cancer. It also keeps a dog's mind healthy from the lack of all those raging hormones and makes he or she a happier, healthier family member.
We perform the appropriate health testings on our dogs before breeding such as Hips, NE, DM and vWD.
We dock tails per AKC standards and remove Dew Claws. There is no medical reason to do this, but it is required for showing Standard Poodles as it is in other breeds. The tip of the tail should be even with the top of the head when the Standard Poodle is standing at attention or in a show stance. I personally don't like to see a poodle that has a long natural tail that is curling over their back. I don't think it is attractive and throws the balance of the dog off.
