the full story
Hi, I'm Lyric
I'm glad you're here
I'm Lyric - > owner, trainer, breeder, mother, and dog mom!
I was blessed with becoming a dog trainer at the age of 13, under a mentor. Opening STONEHAVEN K9 training when I was 15 years old with my mentor by my side. My training program has grown, nonstop for the last eleven years. I'm now a mother of two, a daughter, and a son. A fiance to Christopher, and owner of twelve wonderful dogs. Chris works from home with me and the dogs, so you will meet him too!
My passion for my family and dogs never ends. My pickiness for temperament has built me up with my training career, as well as producing even-tempered dogs suited for workability, or simply a loving pet.
My dogs are a top priority in the care and training they receive from me. I aim to title our dogs in Canine Good Citizen tests, Urban Canine, and Community Canine, and some of our poodles are even titled in Duck hunting retrieval.
Our dogs are used to running, playing, and simply engaging in a large pack of 10 or more on a daily basis, they are well-rounded happy go lucky, with other animals and people!
Our adult dogs are oriented with people, other dogs, and various children of all ages. Our dogs get to visit public locations on a frequent basis to maintain their training and to evaluate and maintain a positive temperament from each breeding prospect. My Program is frequently growing, as we put a lot back into our program, their housing, their care, and upkeep with training.
We breed colored poodles suited for sports work as a gun dog prospect, service dog, therapy dog, or a well-suited couch potato. We focus on merles, and phantoms in our breeding program for poodles. We only breed for poodles when we plan to keep one!
Health tested from OFA, and embark for genetics and DNA, many of our dogs are from Champion Show lines. we specialize in poodles from 30 - 50 pounds. 17"- 27" at the shoulder.
Our Sheepadoodles have two sizes based on our momma's bloodlines, where genetics plays a large role.
Our mediums/Moyens are 35-50 pounds, they are 19- 22" at the shoulder.
Our standards are 60-75 pounds max, with 23-27" the shoulder.
Our Bernedoodles will be mediums at 40-50 pounds, and we will also have minis under 30.
We are incredibly picky with our families, and we hope you would be picky about choosing a breeder as well.
It's not just a sale for us, but someone we add to our extended family.
When reaching our please list all of the questions you have at that time, that may not be answered front and center on our website.
I try to have as much outlined as possible for you to read and get answers prior to reaching out. I'm usually extremely busy with our family, dogs, litter, and owners - so I want you to be supplied with as much as possible.
We want this to be the right investment for you.
We are one of the top few breeders that are currently extensively health testing ( OFA & DNA ) their breeding dogs.
Health testing is NOT just a vet visit. A regular vet cannot complete a PENHIP/OFA rating on hip or elbows, they must be supplied and sent into the orthopedic foundation for animals for the hips and elbows to receive a rating from their specialists. We DNA for genetic diseases, and color traits. Our OFA panels are breed-specific to what needs to be achieved. Please review our dog's page, get a view of their results, and also search their names in the OFA system

WHY SHOULD YOU
Our dogs are health tested to high standards with OFA, as well as DNA tested.
You can view our dog's profiles on OUR DOGS page under the about section.
Our dogs receive health clearances for HIPS, EYES, CARDIAC, PATELLAS, DNA, and anything else the breed standard suggests, that we don't have already listed here. This is more than a vet exam, these are certifications through OFA.
We also have one of the best health guarantees available to pet homes.
