LIFE IS BETTER WHEN YOU SHARE IT WITH A POODLE!!!!
We would like to welcome you to Caralot Poodles. We are poodle breeders in southern Indiana. Thank you for visiting us and we hope you enjoy our site. Be sure and check us out on Facebook too.
First and Foremost, all of our poodles are housedogs and loved dearly! Our poodles, from the time they are born, have never been housed outside or in a kennel building. They have a three acre chain link fenced yard to play in when they are outside. They are allowed to come and go as they please through a doggy door. Usually they can be found just lounging around on the couch or recliner. All of our poodles are groomed on a regular basis every four to six weeks.
We have been breeding, showing and just loving our poodles for eighteen years. Although conformation is very important, we feel that temperament and health is more important than anything. All of our poodles are registered with the American Kennel Club and have been health tested for the recommended tests for their variety.
We breed moyen/kleinpudels and miniature poodles. Although we love our standards, we have decided to stop breeding them. If you are searching for a nice standard, please feel free to contact us and we can help you locate a reputable breeder. We DO NOT promote the breeding of any kind of doodles! If you are looking for a breeding poodle for that purpose, please do not contact us. Poodles come in about every color and most colors are recognized by AKC although only solids can be shown. Most colors can be shown in the UKC ring. We breed solids and multi-colors including phantoms, brindles and partis. We do not breed apricots, reds or browns. All of our dogs must pass their health testing and our puppies are guaranteed for three years. (Please see our guarantee page)
Standard Poodle - The average size of the standard poodle is 24". Males are usually larger than females. The adult weight averages 45 pounds and up. The standard poodle does require exercise but is very content just laying around at your feet too. They make great jogging partners. They are also wonderful family dogs and watchdogs. Don't be fooled by their looks, they are WONDERFUL watchdogs & hunters.
Moyen/kleinpudel- Moyen (French word for medium). Kleinpudel is the German word for this size. They are a recognized size in Europe. Unfortunately, they are not recognized in the United States. Per the AKC, anything over 15" is considered a standard which disqualifies a lot of miniatures from the show ring. Our goal here at Caralot Poodles is to breed the true moyen/klein size poodle between 14" and 18". Their weight will usually range between 18 and 30 pounds. This is the perfect size. They are large enough to play hard but small enough to sit beside you on the couch and cuddle.
MINIATURE - The miniature is over 10" up to 15". They usually weigh between 12-18 pounds. They are the perfect size for cuddling. They are not yappy like a lot of the smaller breeds. Although they love to be cuddled, they can be just as tough as their larger cousins.
All of our poodles run together. It's quite funny when we all go for our nightly walk. You never know who is going to get to the ball first. Trust me, if the little ones want it, they will have it! Honestly, the little miniatures have the standards trained. Very rarely do we have any squabbles.
