This is a Club statement regarding Poodle Crosses
Labradoodles & other Poodle Crosses.
At the AGM of the Standard Poodle Club, many breeders and enthusiasts showed deep concern about the amount of requests for stud dogs they were receiving by Labrador owners and other breeds. It was agreed that anyone wishing to cross breed does not have the interest of our breed at heart and as such may not become members of the Standard Poodle Club.
In order to protect our breed we must seriously consider only selling puppies on a WRITTEN contract, whereby the dogs must be –spayed/neutered, or not bred from without consent of the breeder. Endorsements to pedigrees, even though registered with the Kennel Club, must be put in writing.
