Unfortunately the Standard Variety of Poodles have many health issues at this time. Testing all breeding stock is vital to help insure dogs that are not clear/normal in testing are not used for breeding. Breeders who say they don't have to do the testing are NOT helping the breed. Many of the health issues lay silent and parents may be carriers. Without knowledge of what they are clear or carriers there is no way to know for sure HOW to breed a particular dog or bitch.

All links for testing to each parent dog are listed on our website. Click on the link under each dogs' name to view testing listed at You may also view pedigrees by clicking on the view pedigree link with each dog.

"A-Cut-Above" the Rebelstar Kennels

Breeding Standard Poodles since 1997 we are currently the ONLY Breeder to WIN with a Red Standard Poodle (not a placement, but an actual win) at The Poodle Club of America National Specialty.
Scarlet was
*WINNER of the 6-9 month Puppy Bitch class
*WINNER of Best Standard Puppy &

Scarlet broke 3 records for the color red. No red has ever won a class at The PCA National Specialty before 2007. It is a record that stands today (2/26/10). She is the 5th Red AKC Champion.

Scarlet's half sister Bree (Am-U Ch Rebelstar-Jaset Southern Breeze) placed 6th of 38 at the PCA 2006 National Specialty. Bree also went Winner's Bitch in the Apricot/Red Poodle Club Match at the 2006 PCA Specialty. Bree is one of few AKC/UKC Apricot Champions. Scarlet's half-sister and Bree's full sister Ella, was the FIRST Standard poodle in History to be picked for the Tracking Run and the FIRST Standard poodle to earn her title for Tracking at the PCA National Specialty Show 2009.

Breeding for Attitude and Affection! Striving to always improve on what we have started with in regards to health/structure/temperament. We have dogs that are conformation Champions, dogs that do therapy and service work, dogs that have obedience titles and dogs working in tracking.

All puppies are raised in our home and although we have a "kennel" name all our dogs live in the house with us. Our males live in the grooming shop in their own "apartments" as they have issues with "marking", not uncommon for breeding males.

All genetic testing for our breed is done on ALL breeding parents and is posted at

Let us provide you with a puppy with a great start! All puppies are spayed/neutered before departing for their new homes. We began this in 2004 with the rise of the "Doodles". I have no intention of perpetuating this "fad". All puppies are sold with a LIFETIME warranty for any genetic disease we test for.
