KayeKids was born with
the arrival of our first apricot standard bitch in 1991. She was
quickly followed by the addition of a red standard bitch to our
household. These two females were the foundation for our current
breeding program. We only breed a litter to produce the puppy
who will be the next step in our breeding program. Apricots are
really our passion, but we also have blacks, creams and champagnes.
We are completely committed to breeding a healthy, intelligent,
beautiful standard Poodle. We breed to maintain our already
established low inbreeding co-efficiencies. Our dogs live with us,
sleep with us and share our lives. Puppies are hand raised in
our home, being handled from their birth. Throughout their young
lives they are introduced to small stresses and exercises that help
their cognitive abilities to grow. Above all, they are given
lots of love and attention. Once the puppies are seven weeks
old, they are professionally temperament tested. The personality
profile for each puppy is included in its "puppy packet"
along with copies of all the testing that has been done on the parents
and the generations behind them. All puppies are sold on
spay/neuter contracts or on private treaty show contracts. Our
contracts include a lifetime return policy. We consider every
puppy we have produced our responsibility for their lifetime.
All of our breeding stock has passed ALL the testing criteria
suggested by Versatility in Poodles. Soundness and temperament
are just as important as health and correct structure to us.
Only assets to the Poodle breed are ever bred under the KayeKids
name. We will ship, but prefer you to visit us in person.
Please visit our website for photos and more information regarding our
dog family. As a parting comment, I would just like to say that
the reason we breed is to improve this breed that we dearly
love. It is not our livelihood. We are both gainfully
employed behind the scenes in the Theatre.
