Puppies are $3000 and go home with food, chews, treats, supplements– as well as a new toys and blanket with familiar 'home scents'. 
All puppies will be registered with AKC and the registered name must include “Desert Reef” first. All puppies are evaluated at approximately 7.5 weeks for temperament and between 8/9 weeks for show potential. All puppies will have received age appropriate vaccinations prior to leaving for their new forever homes. Puppies may go to their new homes at approximately nine to ten weeks of age. It is your responsibility to have your puppy examined by your veterinarian within 72 hours of taking possession of your puppy.
Companion pet puppies are sold only with a spay/neuter agreement, with limited registration documentation. Proof of spay or neuter will be sent to Breeder (surgery done - not before 10 months old- and by 15 months old.) Breeder will register each puppy with AKC after buyer has picked out it's call name. 

Show potential puppies, sold with full registration, will be co-owned with breeder until championship title has been achieved, and any other breeding requirements have been met. (ie, health testing)

Please contact me directly to discuss show availability, price, deposit, terms of ownership, etc.

All prospective buyers must provide two references, with phone #’s, to whom I may speak personally.  

Name and relationship ... and phone:

Thank you in your interest in a Desert Reef poodle and taking the time to fill out this application. Should you accept the terms and conditions of the purchaser's contract, you will be asked to send a non refundable deposit of $500.00 when puppies are 3 weeks old. The deposit IS refundable should the appropriate puppy not be found in this litter. (color, gender, temperament test results)


We won't know until delivery whether we have enough males and females to fit everyone's preferences nor will we know if we have the perfect temperament/ personality for you. The puppies will be professionally temperament tested and the best attempt to match puppy to prospective owner will be made.

Your visits are always welcome too!


Please feel free to contact me for any information about our dogs, purchasing a puppy, or just questions about what it means to have the joy of a standard poodle, or poodles, in your life!


Also.... owner impute is critical if a breeder is to keep track of the quality of their breeding program. Will you be willing to keep in contact with us? We love to hear about how they are doing and of course seeing pictures.


Thank you!
