Hi everyone.

I am looking for a standard poodle pup to train as a service dog. My current dog is retiring. If you have any recommendations that would be great.

I am in California but traveling is not a problem. So any where would be fine.

There is a Standard Poodle breeder in CA that does service dogs. Check w/ Ollie's mom.. I have a Standard Poodle from AZ being trained as my next service dog. Check out Harmony Mountain Pudels because I'm like the 3rd poodle owner that's using one of their pups for service dog work..

How long did you wait before hearing back from Harmony Mountain? I really like all the health testing they do and how they raise the pups.

I had to wait over a year for one of the their pups.. I could only have a cream male. The other ones that went out as Service Dogs were also male and cream color. The cost is about $1500 or so for one of their pups.

That's one reason I went with them was because of their testing. Their dogs are sound and are used as hunting pudels. They've had several litters lately and most of them are already spoken for. If you get approved for one you have to put a deposit down to hold the pup. I was lucky to get to pick out mine. There were 2 male creams in the litter. When I saw them at 4 wks of age I took the larger of the two. His temperment test would be done before I picked him up. Ailbe has turned out to be a large pup -- At 17 months he's almost 69 lbs.

The only suggestion is to write to them asking about their pups and that you would like one to train as a service dog. I was lucky that they said yes, but you never know if they will allow another one to go out as a future service dog.

Pretty sure that Ollie is from La Marka in California; several others from his line are SDs as well.
