A #400 Airline Kennel or its Wire Equivalent in Size for our Standard Poodles as an aid in housebreaking and as your dog’s “bed”. 2. Hard rubber toys, or Nyla bones. We do Not recommend rawhide chews as these will soften and may become lodged in the throat. 3. That tennis balls be used under supervision. 4. 8-10 weeks  Basic Obedience Training for all of our puppies. This helps you get control and focus their minds at an early age (6-9 months). 5. Contacting a groomer before you bring home the new puppy. Please return this application to Degana Poodles, and you will be contacted for an appointment to come out and see the dogs and visit with us. Thank you for contacting us!
