On this site you will meet four
main characters - Gary, Beau, Scout,
We are tied together by our love of
being somewhere out in the fields either training or hunting.
Before continuing there's a short history
lesson on the page--Predecessors --about how Poodles have become almost an
obsession for the Scovel family .
Our first three poodles, Nikki,
Loki, and Nero, in that order, have passed on. I never considered hunting
with a poodle until Ole my last lab had to be retired. That's when I decided to give
Nero a chance.
He was five years old
at the time but did well enough to convince me poodles would replace labs as my choice to hunt over. I
really wanted a non-shedding house dog that could hunt. I
now own three that do and am also hooked on training them for UKC and AKC
advanced level hunt test titles. See for yourself as you look further about
how well they have done.
Their success convinced me to breed
Beau x Callie after I had them both health tested for hips, eyes, thyroid, and SA.
Those seven pups were sold fast. I followed up with one more breeding of
Callie to a proven hunting stud I knew well, but not my own. Callie's
second litter of another seven were all spoken for prior to being whelped.
It was interesting and fun raising two litters but have decided that was enough.
We are no longer in the
breeding business but check out the "Puppy Page" to see if we have posted
information on other litters with good hunting
