RAISING OUR POODLE PUPPIES
"True quality is a state of being that can only
be substantiated by continuous achievement"
At Ormar, we take breeding and raising our puppies very seriously. We are fully committed to the care and well being of not only the mother and her pups, but to also ensure that your new Poodle puppy gets the best possible start in life, which will enable him/her to develop into the loving and well-mannered companion you wish to share your life with.
Our puppies are born in our home’s nursery room, which is adjacent to our bedroom. I do not work outside of the house, which enables me to supervise and tend to my puppies’ needs around the clock. In order for me to monitor each Poodle's growth and development, they're all identified at birth by putting a small dot of non- toxic water-soluble acrylic paint on top of their fur, pink for girls & blue for boys. This enables me to identify and follow up on each puppy from birth, and up to the time, they leave our home at 9-10 weeks of age.
Newborn Poodle puppies spend approximately 3.5 weeks in the nursery room. It is there where their socialization begins with humans other than myself, my husband, and with our adult dogs. During their neonatal period, from the 3rd to the 16th-day post birth, we utilize Dr. Carmen Bataglia's Biosensor Early Neurological Stimulation exercises with our newborn puppies. Several benefits have been observed in puppies that were exposed to the Bio Sensor Stimulation exercises, such as improved cardiovascular performance, stronger heart beats, stronger adrenal glands, more tolerance to stress , and a greater resistance to diseases. Puppies were also found to be more active, and more exploratory. We encourage all our clients and their children to visit the puppies at least twice a week, to hold, interact, and play with them. We accommodate our clients and invite them to come and socialize the puppies when their schedule affords them to visit. We always love to have clients and friends visit us and play with our puppies. .
At 4 weeks old, we start to wean our puppies. Once they learn to eat on their own and are well on their feet, we move them into a large puppy enclosure measuring 10ft x 4ft, which is set up in our large and bright family room on the house’s main level, overlooking our beautiful backyard, garden, and fenced-in swimming pool. It is in the family room where our puppies continue their socialization and exposure to a myriad of noises, various stimuli, daily interactions with visitors and our dogs, all of which prepares them for the big world and gives them the tools with which to deal with a variety of situations they will eventually encounter when they leave our home to join their new families.
During this time, our Poodles get introduced to grooming, which consists of bathing, blow drying, clipping nails, shaving faces and feet, and getting their first trim. Early grooming is very important in order to teach the puppy not to be afraid of the clipper, water, and blow dryer.
Socialization and exposure to different situations is of paramount importance to every puppy’s well being and future development. We take this task very seriously, and do our best in order to prepare your new family member to be a confident, easy going, relaxed , sound, and well adjusted dog.
The puppies’ premises are kept in immaculate condition, which teaches the puppies from an early age to be clean and not soil where they sleep, eat, and play. They are provided with a large potty area, which is consistently monitored and cleaned throughout the day.
Before they leave our home, they are temperament tested, vet checked, vaccinated, micro-chipped, de-wormed, and CKC registered. We provide our clients with a 12 page instruction manual as well as our Six (6) Year Written Health Guarantee, which forms part of our puppy contract.
At 8 weeks of age, our Poodles are temperament tested as well as graded for show or pet. We choose our pick-of-the-litter puppy(s) for showing and incorporating into our breeding program. The remaining puppies go to their new forever loving homes on spay/neuter contracts at 9-10 weeks of age.
Letting puppies go to their new homes is difficult for any serious and dedicated breeder. I care about and love each puppy I bring into this world and treat it as part of our extended family when I place it in its new home. I invest a lot of myself in each puppy I breed, care for, and properly raise. I take the time to establish a relationship of trust with all puppy owners and I find it to be a very rewarding experience. I encourage all clients to keep me posted and update me on their puppy's progress and am always available to help and answer questions.

I consistently receive visitors, pictures, e-mails, as well as numerous messages in my GUEST BOOK ( Link located on the About Us Page) from satisfied owners who have acquired a puppy from me, and many a time have had them come back for a second and third puppy.
Throughout the years, we forged many wonderful friendships with clients who purchased our puppies and consider them to be, both, good friends and part of our extended family.
It is very heartwarming when I know I was able to provide each puppy with a loving family, and that ultimately both lives are enriched.
We wish to thank all our wonderful clients for providing their Ormar puppies with loving responsible homes.
