They are only the 5th confirmed Standard Poodle team
to earn this prestigious IPO Title in the WORLD !!
and of course the first RED STANDARD POODLE !!
Our CKC Champions we "PRODUCED
I hate having our Poodles in this ridiculous "hair do" but, we had to prove our Poodles
were of quality to Champion in any Venue, and well, we did it in less than a year
with the help of Team Allison Foley, and our groomer Laurie Soutar
Don't worry these "glamour" kids still do all the working events !!
Hands free jogging or walking leash.
Our Poodles love daily jogging with their owners. Raven does my 6km a day when I was training.
Available at Amazon or buy direct at their web page. Buddy System
I really love this product and I will be using it for Skijoring and sled pulling along with a harness
Starting in 2013 Poodle Racing Association of Canada
Poodles can now race with CARA !!!
This means your Poodle (toy, miniature, Standard) can race competitively against other Poodles for titles !
Bijou Poodles making AKC and UKC history, with the First Lure Coursing Standard Poodles Come and join us at the shows, we do it all !!
Every year we like to encourage our working Poodle People to come out to a show and enter their dog
in Lure Coursing, Rally, Obedience, Weight Pulling, Conformation/Showing or Canine Good Citizen Testing
I will pay for the first show entry fee and then it is up to the owner if you wish to continue.
Owners may choose to show themselves or hand their puppy over to me to show for them.
Owners may even drop off the puppy on a Thursday and pick up puppy on the Sunday at my home or the show.
Choice is up to the owner how involved or how much they wish to participate.
Make sure if your Bijou Poodle accomplishes anything that you take a photo and preferably with the judge
you will just never get that moment back later and so many people have regrets for not taking the time to get a photo.
What you need to bring to a Performance Event:
Put your name on everything to avoid confusion or loss
A comfortable chair
Poop scoop baggies
Cage for Puppy (yes be a good owner. All our pups should be trained to be content in a cage)
Water jug for your puppy/water bucket (we like 2 quart size with narrow hook)
6 foot leash and a flat collar as some Judges do not allow choke collars
If the event is outside, then you may wish to bring a 10'x10' straight leg canopy
A reward, either toy or treats
What you need to bring to a Conformation Show:
All the above
Grooming Tools to fluff and primp
36" Grooming Table with 48" arm
Show lead and collar
Of course you could bring more which we have listed here: Showing
If you come to a show with us, we will provide everything else that you will need, such as grooming and show tools.
If you are planning on showing your puppy yourself, then you will also need to bring attire similar to
what you would wear to a job interview or to church. Basically you will need to appear professional
Also shoes that are plain and blend with your clothing that are flat and comfortable to run in.
If you are going to do Lure Coursing, weight pulling or Obedience then you will need comfortable "layers" of clothing
Mornings are cold and wet and usually afternoons are dry, humid and sunny.
We will have drinks and food, but you could also bring your own cooler and water for your dog.

Why Title your Dog
by Sandy Mowery
Not just a brag, not just a stepping stone to a higher title, not just an adjunct to competitive scores;
a title is a tribute to the dog that bears it, a way to honor the dog, an ultimate memorial.
A title will remain in the record and in the memory, for about as long as anything in the world can remain.
And though the dog herself doesn't know or care that her achievements have been noted,
a title says many things in the world of humans, where such things count.
A title says your dog was intelligent, adaptable, and good-natured. It says that your dog loved you
enough to do the things that please you, however crazy they may have sometimes seemed.
In addition, a title says that you love your dog.
That you loved to spend time with her because she was a good dog and that you believed in her enough
to give her yet another chance when she (or you!) failed and in the end your faith was justified.
A title proves that your dog inspired you to that special relationship enjoyed by so few.
That in a world of disposable creatures, this dog with a title was greatly loved, and loved greatly in return.
And when that dear short life is over, the title remains as a memorial of the finest kind
the best you can give to a deserving friend. Volumes of praise in one small set of initials after a name.
An Obedience (Weight Pull, Lure Coursing, Rally, Barn Hunt, Nosework, Agility) title is nothing less than the true love and respect
given and received and recorded permanently.
What are the initials after the dog's names ?
We show in AKC, UKC, and various other Associations whose titles are not recognized by AKC or UKC
AKC titles will not appear on UKC registration Papers and UKC titles will not appear on AKC registration papers
We do these activities with our Poodles, because they love these sports, and it also show cases our Poodle's abilities
