Stoney Brook Poodles is located at the 300 year old farm traditionally called Stoney Brook, in the colonial village of Roxbury, CT. We are located on the historic green and give our horses, chickens, bees, cats and dogs a quiet harmonious setting to thrive.
We have been producing show, agility and hunt quality AKC registered Standard Poodles for 20 years. Our dogs are bred for beauty, confirmation, health and temperament, and make wonderful additions to any family as well as outstanding therapy dogs.
We are proud of our Stoney Brook working dogs. At the Poodle Club of Massachusetts event, Stoney Brook D. (Lucy) won a Working Certificate (WC) when tested in the field for water fowl retrieval in 2009. At the Poodle Club of America National Event, she was one of only 8 poodles nationally that won a WC and a Working Certificate Excellent (WCX). AKC awarded Stoney Brook Rupert the Survivor an Honorable Mention for Canine Excellence (ACE) in the
category of exemplary Therapy work in 2007. One dog in the country, a corgi, won the ACE award for therapy, and only 7 dogs won the honorable mention. Rupert was the only standard poodle in the group of 8 dogs. Westminster Kennel Club acknowledges exemplary Therapy dogs at their annual shows and Stoney Brook Scout has received that honor for her work in New York hospitals. Our poodles have provided a healing presence at veterinarian and psychologist offices; provided in-home therapeautic support for a families with special needs children; had special training to provide diabetes alert service; work in the school systems with autistic children; and work in hospitals with seriously ill children.
We seek out diversity in pedigree every generation, through purchase of poodles outside our line or breeding to champion studs outside our line. Below are pedigrees of our most recent sires and dames of puppy litters. On these AKC pedigrees, only AKC USA and Canadian champions are shown in red. For the foreign dogs shown, the foreign championshps from Australia, Holland, Spain and UK are not indicated within the AKC pedigree. Most of the poodles in our pedigree are conformation champions, some of which are also agility champions. We are grateful to the exemplary breeders and owners of quality studs that have enabled us to optimize genetic diversity and quality in our line.
If you would like more information on upcoming and existing puppies please email Sandra at firstname.lastname@example.org. Usually we breed once or twice a year. The rest of the time, the poodles just run around the farm playing and chasing squirrels.
We follow the Poodle Club of America recommendations for the health testing of the breeding parents, and have the test results OFA certified. We also arrange for an outside professional to do our temperament testing of each litter at 7 weeks. Below is the most recent health testing completed on our breeding dames and sires.
Here is the father of some recent litters: Lauris Quintessential, relaxing at an AKC/PCA specialty conformation show.
Here on this page we’ve uploaded photos of some of the poodles we have bred as well as our Puppy Care Document, full of tips and recommendations for training, nutrition and more, which we have been compiling and expanding over the years. Enjoy!
