I'm Lyric - > owner, trainer, breeder, mother, 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 me. My training program has grown, nonstop for the last ten years. I'm now a mother of two, a daughter, and a son. A fiance to Christopher, and owner of twelve wonderful dogs.
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, 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 nothing less than friendly, they are oriented with people, other dogs, and children. Our dogs get to visit public locations on a frequent basis to maintain their training, 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, phantoms, and brindles in our breeding program for poodles.
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 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, ELBOWS, EYES, CARDIAC, PATELLAS, and anything else the breed standard suggests, that we don't have already listed here.
Please feel free to interview us as much as possible!
I highly encourage phone calls or facetime videos when scheduled!
We are incredibly picky with our families, as 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 an 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, and get a view of there results, and also search their names in the OFA system
