A puppy is an extension of your family. A puppy must be specifically selected taking all individual personalities into careful consideration.

Your poodle puppy will need a lot of care. Poodles need regular professional grooming and in between brushing, ear cleaning, and nail trimming. Puppy kindergarten is a must for new poodle owners. Obedience class provides guidance and socialization so your pup can grow into the well-mannered poodle you desire.

All Murrmaid Poodles are sold as pet quality or show quality prospects. The difference is your intentions. All "pet quality" pups are sold on limited registration. This AKC breeder option assures us that no offspring will be registerable. If your intention is to show and bred your poodle full registration may be available.

Our policy on breeding is strict. We have invested many years of experience to present you with a poodle that will always carry the Murrmaid prefix. It is our goal at Murrmaid Poodles to place a wonderful, happy, healthy, sound poodle with your family for a lifetime of companionship.
