Brivali Poodles is a small, home-based breeder of AKC standard poodles located near Tallahassee, Florida. Our poodles live in the home with us and are our family pets. With each planned breeding, we work to improve with the next generation, focusing on health, conformation, and temperament. We show our poodles in the conformation ring, but believing in the importance of having versatile dogs, we also train them in agility, rally, and nose work. Some of our poodles would also make excellent service dogs and therapy dogs. Most importantly, we aim to raise poodles that are confident, happy family pets because we consider all of our poodles family members, first and foremost.
As with our adults, our poodle puppies are also raised in our home. We follow Puppy Culture and Avidog practices. We do early neurological stimulation (ENS) and early scent introduction (ESI). We follow these protocols because we believe that early socialization and desensitization is paramount to raising a confident, well-rounded puppy. We start this process at a young age, with age-appropriate progression, to ensure that each puppy gets the best start possible.
We believe setting up each puppy for the best life possible starts before they're born by thoroughly screening their dam and sire for health conditions. Thus, consistent with The Poodle Club of America's recommendations, we conduct pre-breeding health clearances on all of our poodles. The test results are listed on our website under each dog, and this information may be verified on OFA's website.
We also strive to breed poodles that conform to The Poodle Club of America's breed standards. This means we do not support the cross-breeding of poodles with other breeds, nor do we support cross-breeding to create "merle poodles."
We welcome inquiries for show, performance, and pet/companion homes. All puppies will be registered with the AKC. Unless sold as a show prospect, puppies will be AKC registered with "limited" papers. This will allow you and your puppy to compete and participate in all AKC events except conformation. "Full registration" is available for show prospects to approved homes. Puppies will be up to date with age appropriate vaccinations, de-wormed, and microchipped. We typically have apricot, red, cream, and black puppies available. If you are interested in a puppy from a future litter, you can fill out an application to be placed on a wait list.
