I am a Red 100% Standard Poodle that has been DNA tested. I am all poodle, no mix! I have been through several hundred hours of training, work well with children, adults, crowds and am able to get along with a variety of different animals.  I do not bark at other animals or people.  I do not nip or bite and have several commands which I adhere to immediately from hand signals or verbally with no problem.

Commands are: sit, stay, up, down, hold, bark, stand, fetch, kiss, shake hands using either foot, beg, stay in any position for 10-20 minutes, does not react to flashes or noise. I love to swim and go boating. My owner can teach me any trick or command with-in 1-2 weeks, depending upon whether I want to listen to him.

I am available for photo shoots, movies, pet modeling, magazine spreads and just about anything you can think of. I love to work and am always looking for something new to try. I have traveled by train, planes, numerous different vehicles with no problem.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. All e-mails will be responded to with-in 48 hours or when I finish walking my owner.
