In 2014, our family grew from two to five with the adoption of three boys from Ethiopia. The transition was hectic, overwhelming, hilarious, & beautiful all at the same time. Stephanie had left her full time job to stay home with the boys & was struggling with the transition. The unexpected & difficult loss of our poorly bred labradoodle, Donovan, got us started on the search for a new puppy. In 2015, we placed a deposit on a future, planned litter of standard poodles. We picked up Ellie in early 2016 & quickly realized that we needed to share the joy and heart healing that she brought to our family.
We understand that you've got plenty of choices & we're thankful you're trusting in us! We don't take that decision lightly, so we strive to create the whole package. An easy, honest customer experience & a poodle that fits your needs and goals. Our curriculum works every stage of puppy development to create puppies that are confident & trainable. Understanding that each litter & puppy is different, we focus on each puppy to give them the tools to adapt to their new family.

Aja is our brilliant up and coming male and our very first bred-by UKC champion. He was born here at Independence Poodles & was adored from the first second.

He will begin his health testing after his first birthday.
Theodore is our up and coming brindle parti male. This big guy is full of personality and everyone is drawn to his bubbly demeanor. He's well on his way to his UKC championship after just two weekends in the ring. We can't wait to see what the future holds for this big lap poodle.

Located conveniently in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, we are breeders of AKC registered standard poodles. You won't find any kennels here, our poodles are raised & adored in our home or in a few trusted guardian homes. Our poodles' health & happiness are our top priority and that transfers into the phenomenal puppies that we produce. We pride ourselves on the relationships we build with our clients. We are here from your first inquiry, for questions that pop up when you first take your puppy home, & to celebrate the bond you build with your poodles as he/she ages.
We strive to produce the healthiest, happiest, most adaptable puppies possible. Our foundation poodles were carefully selected from health tested lines before joining our family. Our adults are extensively health tested before breeding, which includes genetics, hips, elbows, eyes, cardiac, thyroid, & patellas. We're proud of our health testing results & are happy to share them with you!
Our puppies are the pride of our program! Whelped in our home office & started with early neurological stimulation & scent introduction, they are monitored around the clock. We use protocols from both the Badass Breeder & Puppy Culture programs that have been developed with your standard poodle puppy's success in mind. We socialize our puppies with adults, children, other dogs & have them temperament tested at 7 weeks of age to find the best match for new families!
