Since 1963 I have had a love affair with the poodle. PINAFORE's mission is: HAPPY, HEALTHY, LONG LIVED STANDARD POODLES! With over 100 American Champions and many more worldwide I am still very excited to continue matching dogs which will produce better than before! BEST IN SHOW is good BUT dogs that live to be 14/16 years with no ISSUES are the BEST. I will keep true to the course I set for my self and am happy to invite any one with the same vision to join in. PINAFORE will be happy to mentor any one who has a passion for the standard poodle. IN 2010 PINAFORE was the third ranked kennel for CHIC REG dogs. PINAFORE is AKC Breeder of Merit and PINAFORE is AKC reg.
