Hello, if you are looking for an amazing companion, then you have come to the right site. How could anyone not be happy with a Standard? As stated recently on the channel “Animal Planet” they are one of the smartest canine breeds on earth, with a high ability to train, completely non-shedding, known for wonderful temperaments which is why they are commonly used for Service Dogs. As many of my clients can testify, they also make fabulous hunting companions as bird dogs.  They vary in size from medium to large and come in a beautiful array of colours and markings. The Standard Poodle is the "original " Poodle and the multi-coloured coat is also "original " and can be witnessed in many historical works of art going back many centuries.  Whether a solid colour or a multi-coloured Standard Poodle......they all make fantastic comical, beautiful, intelligent, well tempered, trainable companions.  More interesting information about the history of poodles can be found at


We enjoy educating people about this particular breed as it has a fascinating history. Most know very little about the Standard Poodle and picture an animal in a fancy cut with diamonds around the neck and bows in the hair. It actually is a very hardy dog as it was originally bred for work and hunting. This versatility allows the Standard to do just as well in the middle of Chicago as it does in country living, sport or hunting companion.

At Balsam Ridge we work very closely with our Veterinarians in order to maintain a high level of health in all our dogs. We health screen our breeders hips, genetic testing through VetGen, Optigen and CERF(see Document Page). All our dogs live within our home as every single one is considered a member of the family. Living on over ten acres of land provides them with plenty of exercise and fresh air, ensuring a sound mind and body. We breed for Health, Correct Conformation, Temperament and those wonderful colours and markings. All puppies are born in a specially designed and custom built nursery within our home where we can keep a close eye on them at all times. 

Our puppies are provided with Canadian Kennel Club registrations, Sales Agreement & health guarantee, CKC Non-Breeding Contracts(unless other decision made by breeder),  Sire and Dam's three generation pedigrees , Copies of parent's genetic Health Testing results,  CKC approved microchipping, Vaccinations up to date, Dewormed, Vet checked, Veterinarian records and a Puppy Package.  We also introduce our puppies to crate training, house training, the outdoors, collar/leash, bathing/grooming, handling/sensory education and an abundance of play and lots of love.
