The damage has been done... The breeder has cashed my deposit check.

My wife and I are actually extremely excited about getting our dog next spring. I have been talking with this breeder for almost 2 years now and the litter we want will be born next spring. We got our deposit in now, because they will sell out fast, if not all ready.

We are getting a standard poodle from Louter Creek Hunting Poodles in GA. You may recognize their dog "Cooper" from the Duck Dynasty episode when Si hunted with the poodle. Cooper is the first Master Hunter poodle I believe. Cooper is their most decorated field trial dog, but they have others who are not far behind.

Our pup will have Cooper as their grandpa so we are very optimistic about our puppy's drive to hunt.

Check them out... or laugh at us, whatever you want to do.

This is the bitch they will be breeding to get our pups...



... And they are some damn cute pups...

Hey, if they hunt, they hunt jack. I thought about a poodle when I was looking for a hunting dog but the standard size aren't super popular. Poodles were bred to hunt too!

Cool! Had two standard poodles (in succession) growing up. They weren't hunters but were damn smart and good dogs. Poodles have a long history of hunting. Very cool!

Good luck with the new pup and send plenty of pictures , I hunted with a guy who had one and it was a great dog .
 
Don't know if I would take Uncle Si's recommendation, but it would be nice to have a dog that doesn't shed. I've seen a couple hunting poodles in the field over the years and there's a guy out at Prado that has a couple. They seemed like they were getting it done, but the Prado guy told me they were very smart and willful and he needs to be very firm with them. Sounded sort of like how weims are. Have fun - I'm sure you'll get a lot of attention with him.

The shedding is part of the reason I went this way. My wife has pretty bad allergies.

Louter Creek actually trains all of the dogs for the show Duck Dynasty.

I have heard poodle training is fairly specialized. I plan on flying to GA to pick up my pup and spend some time getting tips from Rich Louter on training.

A good dog is a good dog, regardless of the breed. The Wister mud is a valid concern. That stuff is nasty. Even with my lab. I cannot imagine what it would do to a dog with substantial hair.

Luckily I do not hunt wister that much. Only 1 or 2 times a season. SJ, Kern, and up north of where I prefer to be.

Yeah. Our breeder gets them use to clippers before we even pick them up. This is good for us because we would like to start grooming our small Maltese as well. So our poodle will be groomed regularly with a short clip.

They say every dog resembles the owner,so be careful how ur girl dresses it up.

There's a couple of poodles running in the AKC Hunt Tests here in the SoCal area. They do work AND like to show off.

I might have to go check some of them out. Anywhere I can find a schedule for the AKC hunt tests online?
