Wool ‘n Wind Standard Poodles is a family of crazy poodle people breeding Standard Poodles in Connecticut, deeply devoted to raising the healthiest, most sound, most loving, most affectionate four legged family member you could ever have!
As life-long breeders of purebred animals, first sheep, then Old English Sheepdogs, and now Standard Poodles, we have always endeavored to breed the best, with an understanding that ‘the best’ is a personal opinion. For us, ‘the best’ begins with a genetically clean foundation. We screen for everything we can to ensure that we are starting with best possible health potential. Our goal is for your new family member to live a healthy, long and happy life.
After a sound genetic base, our first priority is temperament. Standard poodles are big, comedic love-bugs who only want one thing in life – their person. We work to ensure that these are exactly the traits you find in every Wool’n Wind puppy. We are proud of our ability to work with any dog from our program as a Therapy Dog. Our dogs work in nursing homes, public and private school settings and in corporate offices providing support for stress reduction, grief and loss and general anxiety. Their empathy knows no bounds. We also campaign an occasional dog on the AKC show circuit to ensure that what we think is beautiful is confirmed by a variety of objective judges, certified to evaluate poodles against the breed standard. This helps us to know that we are on the right track. We do not show every Wool ‘n Wind pup, just enough to know that our breeding program is sound according to the standard.
Ultimately, what matters most to us is that our puppies find their way into loving homes where they will get and give a tremendous amount of poodle joy for the next 12 to 16 years!
