Welcome... Located in Baton Rouge LA., Southern Standards is committed to excellence. Whether you are looking for a standard poodle for a pet, sport dog to do agility, or a show dog for the conformation ring you should consider us. We take pride in the selection of our breeding stock as well as our standard poodle puppies. Our sires and dams come from coast to coast with focus placed on temperament and looks. They are raised in a family environment resulting in well socialized dogs that are great with children. All of our dogs are AKC registered and are from champion bloodlines. Our goal at Southern Standards is a healthy, well socialized puppy for you and your family.

Summer's flown by and it's hard to believe we are rapidly approaching fall.  We have one black male available from Buttercup's litter in June. He has a great temperament and is a gorgeous looking guy!!

Also, we have a litter due in October.  These puppies will be ready to go to their new homes at Christmas.  If you want to surprise someone special with a beautiful puppy during the holidays, contact us and we can reserve one for you.  This litter will be reds and are always popular.

We love helping people find the perfect puppy. Please give us a call or email if we can help you.
