Grommet 41.5 lbs. – 23″ tall
Grommet is a handsome small standard poodle.
I have always had a difficult time finding poodles from breeders that I would want to add into my breeding program. I seek puppies whose parents have been health-tested for generations, who are well tempered, and who possess the look and structure that are important to better my breeding program. Meeting all of these criteria has been a difficult task. Whenever I thought I found the perfect addition, there was usually a reason I couldn’t add them – either the puppy didn’t pass my strict health testing, their temperament wasn’t just right, or they didn’t grow up to be what I expected. Some may say I’m a bit too selective when adding dogs to my program. I raise a lot of dogs, but only a few actually make the cut.
I finally decided to breed a litter of poodles for myself, keep and raise the puppies, and choose the top dogs out of that litter to breed. I bred two of my most prized poodles – who have everything I look for and love about the poodle breed. It was a great success. I hand-picked some of those pups to raise, one of whom is Grommet.
Grommet is the biggest poodle of all his littermates, which suits his big personality well. He is bursting with kindness, a good sense of humour, and good looks. As a tri phantom, he is envied by many. Grommet gets along with everyone, but enjoys the company of his brother Hershey the most. These boys love to wrestle, always trying to outdo each other in strength with lengthy games of tug of war. When spending time with Grommet one on one, you get to see his softer side where he anticipates your every move. He carries out commands exceptionally well, and he listens very well under distraction. He never backs down from a challenge and is always keen to seek out the next adventure, whether it’s hiking, swimming, or being the first to get the ball. His fun and playful personality is one I want to see in every one of my doodles. I can’t wait to share his amazing personality with dog lovers everywhere!
