My name is Meagan Townsend , and although I have just started O.M.G.Poodles I am no beginner with animals. I have worked with many dogs and horses throughout my life and have always had an eminence passion for them. Colorado has always been my home state although I have done some traveling, mostly on the west cost. I have settled here in Creede Colorado with the love of my life, Eric Grossman. We both love to explore the mountains on horse back and need a tough level headed dog! That is where our love of standard poodles comes in!
Although I have worked and owned rescue mutt dogs my hole life I have always wanted a standard poodle. Being a groomer for most my life I'm sure had something to do with that but Eric was all in. Taika was our first poodle and all though I had worked for a very high end Australian labradoodle breeder in the past , we had no plans to show or breed our new beautiful girl. When we got Taika home she took to our barn kittens eminently! Carrying them around softly by the scruff just like their mom would have done. The kittens were very small and likely to young to be away from their mom but they loved Taika and she loved to mother them even at such a young age. She is also a beautiful mover and looks like she is in the show ring no matter where she is or what she is doing.
With the help of Taika's breeder we have done well in UKC confirmation and rally but we are definitely still learning and I loving every minute of it. Standard poodles are an amazing breed that is super smart and as tough as the rocky mountains. All our poodles love grooming and getting dirty! Horse back rides all day or hanging out and cuddling me when I'm sick with a migraine. They are my heart dog and we want to share that experience with others.
With my experience in dog training and with some help of my mentors i have come across the puppy culture program . A beautifully simply laid out science to giving the most to puppies during their critical developmental phase between birth and 12 weeks old. I truly believe as breeders we should provide a solid foundation of communication with the puppies that we raise. We have them during the time they are the most able to learn and what they learn will stay with them for life. Visit the puppy culture web site, and if you are thinking of buying any puppy invest in the DVD set, the information you will see is profound and the foundation of our puppy rearing program!
