Raising a puppy is a life-long commitment, and we ask that you take help
ensure that every puppy goes on to live happy healthy lives with their
new families, we carefully consider each home seeking to bring a Sonne
Standard Poodle puppy into their home.  
As in-home breeders of quality Standard Poodles , Sonne's goal is to provide
healthy, balanced Standard Poodles to families wishing to enjoy the intelligence
and temperament of this wonderful breed.  While we do not show our dogs,
they boast champions in their heritage.  We are committed to sustaining and
improving the quality of the breed by maintaining a low
COI in the puppies we
raise.  

Our puppies are available to join their permanent families at age of 8 weeks.  
However, we specialize in providing older, trained puppies.  We work with our
older puppies on house-training & crate-training.  We also start them walking on
a leash focusing on helping them to master the loose-leash walk by the age of
10-12 weeks.  We work on learning the basic commands of sit, shake, lay-down,
and stay.  Word recognition by the age of 12 weeks usually includes, "No, Quiet,
Leave-It, Bed, Outside, and Excuse Me (asking them to move so I can walk
through a doorway or room).  I am a novice and do not wish to portray that I
have credentials as a Trainer.   My focus as the "pre-school teacher of the
puppies" is to do all possible to provide puppies that are candidates for those
who want to do their training themselves or in coordination with their chosen
trainer.  Families who are simply looking for a great family companion are also
very pleased with the good behavior of a puppy who is calm, loving, intelligent &
people-oriented.

Kylie, the Beagle, comes to stay with us 3 days a week while her
Mommy works.

My pleasure, Lois.  Glad you enjoyed it.  She
worked at Cardinal Hill Hospital this afternoon in
Lexington, KY.  We go every Thursday to the
Hospital and work with a Therapist and a TBI
patient.  (Traumatic Brain Injury)  She assists with
(or helps perform) whatever motor skills the patient
is working on.  Today, it was Speech Therapy.  
Cardinal Hill is perhaps the top rehabilitation hospital
in KY. for brain injuries, stroke victims, spinal cord
injuries, etc.  There are 4 other dogs that also work
each week and it is a fairly new program; we were
able to get in on the ground floor so to speak.  
Thanks!
