Teddy's owners flew all the way to PA to pick Teddy up and take him home to California.
Teddy's dad shared commented on Facebook sharing
"I couldn’t agree more about Diane & Kim. They have the best Standard Poodles ever. After speaking with Diane and Kim by phone (from California where I live), I knew they stood above the other top standard poodle breeders I located on the AKC website. My Teddy is perfect in every way. A real champion. He is kind, gentle, fun, loving, caring, loves to play games, he’s super smart and a serious watch dog! All boxes checked. He’s healthy and robust. 70 pounds and fast as lightning. He takes care of his Daddies and we take care of him. Happy to share more or answer and questions. Just message me 🐩"

I get stopped everyday... people ask me if he is a show dog... I say yes... he comes from a long line of show dogs! Teddy is really special. And, I am very, very lucky to have him 😁"

Apache's future includes show dog and grooming competition dog. We look forward to watching his show career and in competition grooming.
Apache's owner left us a recommendation on Facebook along with the photo below. Thank you very much!
"A few years ago, I noticed a gorgeous white standard poodle. She was stunning, and I asked the owner where she came from, and she directed me to D and D Standards. 2 weeks ago, I finally got the boy of my dreams! My pup is perfect in every way. D and D is an amazing breeder, they far exceeded my expectations and experience with other breeders. You can really tell how much effort they put into producing top of the line poodles. Everyone is absolutely amazed at his temperament, he has shocked everyone at how well behaved and socialized he is! I’ve been told by SEVERAL (and jealous!) people that he is worth every penny and then some. Finding a reputable breeder is rare nowadays, but they are excellent, I can’t say enough good things! My pup is a future show dog and grooming competition dog, and I am so proud to say he was produced by D and D!"
She also sent us the picture below along with "Look who came with us to work today!"
Shortly after getting Apache home his new owners shared
"He’s doing great we love him! He’s really so sweet! He went potty outside, ate his food no problem, and he also didn’t get sick on the ride over. No whining or anything, slept through the night! He’s such a ham, he loves cuddling with us! He’s a little intimidated at first by the other dogs lol, but now he wants to play with them. He’s figuring everything out very quickly. Everyone loves him!"
Thank you to Max's owner who posted the following on our Facebook page
"I purchased the white poodle with red collar from Diane and Kim. He is wonderful. Has a loving personality, already know some commands and is much smarter than me. My friends have commented on what a great puppy he is. He even likes cats! Love him. Thank you Diane and Kim! I highly recommend getting a poodle from them. They breed and work with their poodles."
"Hi. Got a chance to take pics. Tried for the stump but he is too quick for me. Jumps off too fast. Hope you enjoy these. "
"Ok. Max is napping now. He is too smart and too cute. Love him. 😊❤️❤️🐩"
"Thank you so much. We are home. He slept most of the way. He is so good. He has had his dinner. I think him and Ben will be friends. He is such a wonderful little bit. Thank you fir the pictures. I think he wants my cold pizza. Or maybe my hand to Che’s on. My life has changed. Thank you. 🐩😊💕"
"Thank you for everything."
"We made it"
"Portland tradition is to take a picture of the airport carpet when you land home "

Archie's family left us a wonderful recommendation on our Facebook page
" We brought our Archie home eleven days ago. He is wonderful! From the first day, he slept seven hours straight at night and was well on his way to being fully housebroken. He arrived knowing out to 'sit' and to 'come'. He's self-assured and eager to please. It is obvious Diane and Kim devote a good deal of time and energy in getting their puppies off to a great start. Diane has been wonderful to work with. She was quick to respond to questions in the weeks leading up to our bringing Archie home. When we picked up Archie from her, Diane spent nearly two hours with us, answering our questions, telling us about Archie, and giving helpful suggestions on raising him into adulthood. We are thoroughly pleased with our experience with D and D Standard Poodles. "
The night after Archie went to his new home with his new family we got our first update
" It was great to meet you yesterday, and thank you for sharing your wisdom and experience!
Archie did great on the ride home. Last night he slept in his crate from 10:30 until 5:20 or so, without a single bark or mess. I was home with him this morning, and I am amazed how quickly he seems to be adapting.
I think we're off to a really good start. We will keep you posted, and call if we run into any problems."
