Shown at all ages, and both puppy and continental clips, with Best of Breed and Group Wins
I hate having our Poodles in these ridiculous "hair do's" but, we had to prove our Poodles
were of quality to Champion in any Venue, and well, we did it in less than twelve months
with the help of Team Allison Foley, and our groomer Laurie Soutar
Don't worry these "glamour" kids still do all the working events !!

UKC Total Dog Award
Same show, Same Day a dog has to win in a Dog Sport Ring and in a Show Ring
Something very few dogs are physically or mentally capable of doing.
Course Bijou Poodles usually do 1-3 Dog Sports, Temperament Test and then the Dog Show.
Bijou Poodles really are, "ALL THAT"
A Total Dog displays equal parts Function, Temperament, and Structure.
UKC Total Dog philosophy places an emphasis on dogs who shine in multiple venues,
such as displaying the gait appropriate for their breed type while in the show ring,
and then using that superb construction to effortlessly run full speed in a Lure Coursing race.
A sound, well-bred, well-adjusted dog can easily transition from the show ring to a performance event.
They have the looks to excel as a proper specimen of their breed,
while also having the brains and ability to perform athletically in a variety of sporting events.

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.

Bijou Poodles also offers CASH Incentives !

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.

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
