V & E Poodles is a small family oriented standard poodle breeder located in Plainfield, Illinois. Our poodles are AKC registered. We specialize in white and black standards for conformation, companionship, obedience, agility and therapy.
As a small time breeder we have been successful in breeding puppies that are winners in many ways! Our puppies win the hearts of everyone they meet. V&E puppies flourish in the conformation and performance rings! We strive to achieve the best "all around" standard poodle. We normally breed maybe one litter a year and put our whole heart and soul into finding the best mate for our girls. However, 2021 we are very excited that we will have double the joy as we are having two litters! There is nothing more satisfying than knowing our puppies are the best that they can be...healthy, smart, beautiful, great temperament and well-socialized.
We hope you enjoy our website.
V & E Poodles will not breed any dog until they are at the least 2 years old AND only after ALL Health Testing is complete. Our dogs have CHIC registration (Canine Health Information Center). This certification gives puppy buyers the knowledge and reassurance that the parents, grandparents, etc. of their new edition have passed important health testing. We follow the health testing guidelines of the Poodle Club of America. All our dogs are listed on the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) website [www.ofa.org] by their AKC Registered name. Upon request we will provide copies of all health testing.
Each puppy comes with a contract that gives the new family a 3-Year Health Guarantee. Not too mention, lifetime support to answer any questions, concerns or advice you may need. We also firmly believe in Dr. Jean Dodds low vaccine protocol. We focus on socialization of the puppies to help them become well rounded which aids them to be able to become a well socialized member of the family.
We practice Puppy Culture. This program was developed by Jane Killion, professional dog trainer and breeder. It is a comprehensive, organized program for breeders to follow during the first weeks of a puppy's life. It entails Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS). ENS is a process that introduces mild stresses to very young in a controlled way. These stresses help stimulate the neurological system which improves the growth and development of the pup's immune system, cardiovascular system, and stress tolerance.
All of our poodles are home raised right in our home. We believe strongly that our poodles are part of our family and family comes first! All dogs are our 4-legged family and live their entire lives with us! We temperament test our litters at 8 weeks of age using the A-Pet method by Avidog. This gives us great insight into each one of the puppies personalities and temperaments. This enables us to place our puppies with their new families and gives us an important formula so we can satisfy the wants and needs of their new families. This assists in placing the new family member into an environment where they will thrive.
Once you have one of our puppies you are automatically a part of our family! Puppy homes are selected very carefully as we want only the very best for our babies!
Nothing is more important than breeding healthy and happy poodles. Health is the number one focus of our breeding program. Conformation Showing, Agility, Rally, Fast Cat, Nose Work, Barn Hunt. etc... are only for short periods of time in your poodle's life. Our main intention is to do our best to breed happy. healthy, intelligent and well-socialized poodles.
