Alue Standard Poodles is a breeder of fully health tested, purposefully bred solid and multi color Poodles. Our mission is to produce stunning dogs that have correct conformation for a lifetime of stability, solid temperaments to make them the best family members they can be and to help bring structure, type, and pedigree into multi color Standard Poodles. We do not breed based on color, and we do not breed based on titles and ribbons. We keep health, temperament, structure, diversity, and goals in mind with each potential breeding we do. We do not breed for just ourselves, we breed for the breed.
We are also working on bringing breed genetic diversity into our program through the use of careful breeding plans using Betterbred and UC Davis to make informed decisions on the relatedness of our dogs to each other and to the Standard Poodle population.
All of the Alue crew is health tested above CHIC level requirements for the breed, and all health testing is made public. We use Betterbred's diversity test with all of our dogs as well.
I am a member of Avidog's Breeder College and I follow their puppy raising program, AtoZ. I chose Avidog over Puppy Culture for many reasons. Puppy Culture has it's place, and in fact I highly recommend their show series for anyone wanting to show their dogs! However, Avidog follows my person philosophies more and I appreciate the science put into everything they put out and the emphasis on dam health as well.
Being Avidog breeders, that means I have shifted from doing Volhard testing - which I've never been a fan of - to Avidog's APET system. I find it is much more forgiving of puppies without putting harsh expectations on them and "punishing" them for being puppies. Based on the behaviors seen here, puppies are matched to their families.
