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.

We are so excited about the upcoming litter between Zeva Rouge and Ozzy III.  Ozzy is a beautiful male from Alabama.  Since both Ozzy & Zeva are red, their puppies should all be red or apricot - and GORGEOUS!!  Zeva is due the first week of November.  Many of you have been waiting for a red puppy and now is your time.  Since this is a litter that will be ready to go home right around Christmas, we don't expect to have them last long.  Please give us a call or shoot us an email if you are interested in a puppy. We love matching puppies with their new families. The Standard Poodle is a great choice if you want a smart and loyal dog - a perfect choice to be part of your family!10.02.14
