Welcome to Solo Standards! We live/work in Western Nebraska on a cattle ranch. We ride horses, use them for ranch work and raise a few colts. When it comes being standard poodle breeders, well that is a passion I have over a decade of experience with.
I am in it for the long haul. All my dogs have hips tested and certified with either OFA or Pennhip (for Hip Dysplasia). Eyes have been CERF (screened and certified normal for common eye diseases and problems.)
I breed for Royal standard poodles. I look for beauty, intelligence, temperament and health in my dogs! I proudly breed for the larger size Standard Poodle -- >Royal poodles as some people may call them. I have a TRUE LOVE for large dogs and want my Poodles to have strength, substance, and the most stable character...these are my goals.
All my puppies will be well socialized with tons of attention and handled everyday. I'll be paying special attention to everybody's personality, to assist you in your puppy selection.
My dogs live a active life and are dearly loved...they are a part of my family. We have miles of hills and open meadows to walk, run, hike, retrieve, swim. It is because we only have a few top notch dogs that they are able to live a full life...not limited to kennels and small pens/yards. I strongly advocate that you visit your breeder of choice to see how the dogs live and interact with you. My dogs will walk among us, have coffee in the kitchen with us and most likely bring you a ball to throw for them. Be picky who you get your puppy from as it supports that breeders habits...I cannot advocate that enough.
PLEASE, look around my website and get to know me and my dogs. I try to represent everything in a honest way... what you see is what you get. CUSTOMERS, I welcome you to pick your puppy up, meet my dogs and see how we live (I will also drive up to 4 hrs one way to meet you.) I have worked a lifetime with animals and am proud to show you all of my dogs. SEE below for a quick look at all my dogs and then go to different pages on the menu to read more about them and see tons of pictures witch I UPDATE often! I take pride in keeping my website current, informative and FUN.
I do NOT ship my puppies via cargo!

It is always good to have a old dog who just knows things. Old Della has it down pat!
Della is 10 yrs old and healthy as a horse!
