Why Choose Us?
Our parents are genetically tested and we offer a health guarantee on our puppies.
We start house training your puppy as soon as they learn to walk so when you come pick him up, you won't be starting from scratch.
We proudly support our local shelters. Each year we donate close to $2000 to help dogs find "forever" homes. If you'd like a portion of your purchase price to go to your local shelter, please let us know!

We have puppies! They will be ready to go home the first weekend in October. Give us a call at 970-903-6145 if you'd like to add one of these sweet pups to your family!
Durango Poodles is located about 10 miles west of Durango on a 32 acre property we call "Clydius Acres." We named it after our first poodle, Clyde. It's truly a dog paradise, with a forest of Ponderosa pines for our dogs to run and play in. You are welcome to visit any time!
While our poodles are likely to be show-quality, our main focus is on health, temperament, and companionship. Our goal is to give you a best friend for life. For that reason, we do not crop tails or remove dew claws. We think your puppy is perfect just the way he is.
Our poodles are bred with love. Your puppy will be born in our home and will enjoy plenty of sunshine and fresh mountain air every day!
Because our focus is primarily on breeding excellent family pets, we do extensive socialization with our puppies. We use a program called Puppy Culture to create confident, happy pups who love to learn. Your puppy will have plenty of interaction with children and will be exposed to a variety of sights, sounds, and smells in his first 8 weeks with us, so he is sure to be a confident well-adjusted dog.
Your puppy is truly a part of our family until you take him home. We believe that breeding dogs is all about building relationships. We consider ourselves to be a "forever" breeder. We hope that you stay in touch for years after you take your puppy home. You can always call us with questions about training, grooming, or health.
