CHAMPIONS OF THE BREED
To be a good breeder and produce exceptional quality dogs, a breeder must have a number of top notch dogs for their consideration. Having a variety of dogs to choose from also allows us to keep our genetic pool diversified. The Foster program is one of the best ways to accomplish this - the ideas was first introduced to me by my Mentor - Wendy Talintyre and other notable breeders in SA and NSW. We do not want to keep a large number of dogs ourselves as poodles need to be a part of the family environment. They are not able to reach their full potential in a kennel situation or if they are part of too large of a pack. The Foster dog program is a win-win situation for us and the Foster family.
We have very specific criteria we are looking for in our foster families. Families MUST be located within two hours of our home. They must have some previous dog experience, preferably being familiar with the coat care requirements of a Poodle.
You are required to take TOP NOTCH care of your new pup. Socialize your dog, take him/her out and about on day trips, socialize him/her with other dogs and people of all sizes. The day to day care of this dog is yours such as obedience training, grooming, spoiling, feeding, worming, flea treatments, cuddles etc., being made to feel like a member of your family.
