This family of dog lovers………since 1975. ….. Originally breeding and selling Irish Setter and Collie puppies…. we switched to Standard Poodles in 1990 when our daughter showed some allergy issues. One of the other gals who showed Morgan horses with us, Joan Caserta, always had these great dogs with her. She maintained the Brookview Kennels for years and was a great resource when I switched to standards. I have never regretted that decision. The wonderful aspects of non-shedding, hypo-allergenic, no dander odor, coupled with beauty and intelligence and great dispositions make for a wonderful family pet. My four year old granddaughter Ella and 20 month old granddaughter Lia interact five days a week with Nobility’s Faith Hill aka Katie (7year old black) and Nobilitys Gabriella Americana,aka “Gabby”(4 +years old blue). The house dogs,as we call them, greet the girls each morning with kisses and hugs and plenty of tail wagging and ofcourse enjoy some tidbits of eggs or waffles or cherrios that get slipped down to them.
Standard Poodles make such great family members. With a little effort initially, crate training, and using common sense with a routine, they adapt to a family’s busy schedule quite easily.
They also make great “therapy”dogs. Two of my pups are activily visiting our recovering soldiers and the elderly. “Ricky” was even voted into the New Jersey Dog of the Year for his tireless visits to our soldiers during 2010.
