I am on pins and needles. Marty is at his first AKC show this week in Richmond with his handler and this is the culmination of 8 months of prepping his coat for the show ring. He is competing against 23 other poodles so I'm not expecting much. In fact, I'll be happy to hear he worked the ring well. That will make me really happy since it will be a very daunting first time experience for him. His handler, Michael Pawasarat, says he should do fine and he is ready. He certainly knows best since he's been doing this for decades including many time to Westminister Dog Show and PCA shows. My prayers are going out to my little buddy. I'll know tomorrow morning after his first show. Do well little Marty!!!!
Marty is a daddy! We have puppies! (Available June 29, 2017). When we do not have puppies we can recommend someone who does. We are in E. PA, near NY, NJ, MD, and Philadelphia

June 27, 2017 ANNOUNCEMENT, Marty is a proud daddy of a beautiful litter of 8 puppies. There are two black boys left and if they are anywhere near as wonderful as Marty their new families will be lucky indeed. They are at Murmaid Poodles in Conestoga, PA. Don't hesitate if interested - they won't be available for long. Joy, of Murmaid, is a long-time renowned breeder of standards and minis and does health testing and showing. She has shown her poodles at Westminster and done very well.
Woo-Hoo.... Marty, Amandi's Marty Michelet, is an AKC Champion under the wonderful grooming and handling of Crystal and Paul Clas. He was awarded back-to-back majors in one weekend by very renowned judges to complete his requirements for champion. Now he is living the life in a shorter haircut at our home and loving all the attention from his family. We will be compiling a video of his show career and you can see his photos from his Champion weekend on his page. He is available for stud to approved dames.
Both of our stud dogs, Marty and Mickie, are descended from ACK CH JC Pioneer Kaiser. JC Pioneer Kaiser was named the #1 standard poodle in 2003. He was honored with an invite and competed at the Westminster Dog Show in 2004. As an excellent example of a poodle that meets the PCA standards for poodles he was honored with a coveted placement on the cover of THREE Poodle Variety magazine issues. Pro Plan dog food also used his image on their products. This wonderful poodle was the whole package. We are especially excited about Marty's prospects because he shares some common pedigree with London, the current "AKC Century BIS Champion - 100 BIS wins".
See photo page for photos and videos of our last litter out of Mickie. Michelet Poodles is based in Eastern Pennsylvania near NY, NJ, MD, and Philadelphia. We are a responsible breeder of just one or two litters of Standard Poodles per year. Please note: We do not support the doodle fad and will not sell a puppy to anyone who supports the breeding of poodles to other breeds. It is a big no-no in our books. Established in 2008 we produce and show quality Standard Poodles for the AKC show ring, pet homes, and AKC Parti-Standard Poodles that compete in the UKC Show ring. We focus on temperament, conformation, agility, versatility, and structural soundness. We practice a strict protocol of health testing, exercise for our poodles and breeding for the best attributes for the poodle breed. We are members of Lehigh Valley Poodle Club, UKC, and AKC Canine Good Citizen Program. Our poodles are members of our family and live with us in our home. Our poodles’ lifestyle includes lots of swimming, hiking, hunting, socialization, cuddling, and playing.
We have two beautiful stud dogs in our home. Marty, (3 years old), AKC CH Amandi's Marty Michelet, is an AKC Champion. He has completed his health testing and has been awarded his CHIC #. His final hip rating by OFFA was "Good", one of the highest ratings you can get. He is a stunning, refined black poodle. He is available for stud service to approved breeders interested in quality, solid poodles. He has clear eyes, clear NE and VwD, has rated "good" for hips and elbow (unsedated), clear cardio, and clear thyroid. A terrific testament to the dedication to health testing is that 100% of Marty's littermates have been health tested (all of them had good or excellent hip ratings) and most of Mickie's half-siblings have been health tested. Several of Marty and Mickie's littermates have also been awarded their CHIC #. Both our studs participate in poodle genetic research projects through PCA and Marty donates blood to our local emergency animal hospital.
Mickie, silver and white, (6 years old), Ch Amandi's Mickie Michelet, was the sire of our last litter and is available for stud to breeders interested in multicolored-poodles. He is fully health tested and has been awarded his CHIC #. He is a proven stud with 26 beautiful puppies on the ground and over five of his puppies are show prospects for the UKC show ring and AKC agility competitions (AKC does not allow partis in the conformation ring). We receive ongoing updates on his puppies from their loving families and the reviews have been terrific. All of Mickie and Marty's health testing results are on their pages and everything was clear and good. They are health tested annually every June at the Lehigh Valley PCA clinic (sometimes it take time for me to post the latest results) where they get a CERF exam from a Penn Vet and any other tests I want repeated annually.
We're happy to answer any questions you may have about Standard Poodles and mentor our buyers of our puppies through the process of raising a great addition to your family. Thank You for visiting!
