These Dogs Hunt   

Welcome.  As a life long outdoorsman and hunter my wife Helen and I have put together this web site to educate other hunters and anyone else who is interested, that in spite of decades of being bred strictly for the show ring, many Standard Poodles still retain the hunting and retrieving instinct for which they were originally bred.


Not many hunters realize a standard poodle can be darn good in the field to say nothing of living with one in the house, where they belong, never living in an outside kennel.  Two huge in house advantages are coats that don't shed and fewer problems than with most other breeds concerning members of the household who may have allergies.  


Yes, they do require regular grooming, a major commitment, and it's cheaper to do it yourself.  For more on that click "Breed" above.
