Please read all the way down to the ROSE at the bottom of this page, to be sure you have seen it all.
Hello, my name is Wendy and I want to welcome you to our FAMILY AFFAIR STANDARD POODLES website. I hope your visit to our site is fun, emotional and informative.
Are you a Standard Poodle owner, or have you ever owned a Standard Poodle in the past? If you qualify as either of the above mentioned people, you know how loyal and loving the Standard Poodle is. The intelligence of this amazing breed is common knowledge for you. The non-stop laughter that they can cause with their clownish antics or perhaps that look in their eyes that says “Who me?” is something you have experienced. With each look of devotion from your Standard Poodle you have felt the goose bumps and familiar feeling each time they snuggle so close.
If you do not own nor have ever owned a Standard Poodle you have so much to look forward to with one. These dogs will amaze you with their endless understanding of the human language. Whether you have been gone from home ten minutes or eight hours, the greeting you will receive will be exuberant. Their companionship will always be a comfort to you. The Standard Poodle is a large breed but the soft, feather like touch they have will surprise you. When your Standard Poodle jumps up to give you a hug it will be so gentle compared to the heavy touch or push from other large, but gentle breeds.
Obviously your search for a new family member has led you here, to our Family Affair Standard Poodle website. Since you are here we hope our knowledge and our 30 plus years of experience breeding will help you find the perfect Standard Poodle puppy for you and your family.
PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO VISIT EACH PAGE OF OUR SITE. Each page is designed and written to help you and your families make a well informed, confident decision to purchase your Standard Poodle puppy here at Family Affair Standard Poodles.

We retire all of our adult Standard Poodles between the ages of six and seven. Occasionally we will have a younger adult up for adoption or a puppy with special needs. The “Adults & Special Needs” page will list the adult Standard Poodles and any special needs puppies or adults who are available. This page will give you an idea of what to expect from these retiring girls and guys as new family members. You will be able to read letters or notes from previous people who have adopted our adult Standard Poodles.
If you have questions you will find a lot of your answers on the “Frequently Asked Questions” page.

We have a “Memorial/Rainbow Bridge” page that pays tribute to our human and animal loved ones who have passed from this life. On this page we pay honor to the people in our lives that have made all of us who we are today and those who have helped to make our dream a reality and worked side by side with us through the good times, as well as the hard times. We also recognize the animals that we have been blessed to know throughout our lives and who have passed on to Rainbow Bridge and are sorely missed.

This is where the puppies are raised. Located on this page you will also find a “Map to Heaven” and some more inspiring and uplifting poems and videos.
In our opinion the most versatile breed anyone could ask for is the Standard Poodle. This athletic breed does not shed and is not at all “Frou-Frou” or sissy. Standards are very happy on a farm, hiking, swimming, hunting and playing games. They are also very content to be a couch potato in an apartment with brief outings to play. They enjoy homes with a houseful of children, older couples or a single human companion. They do great with other pets as well.
Enjoy your visit to our Family Affair Standard Poodles website. We hope to hear from you soon so that you can become a part of our Family Affair.
