Welcome... Located in Baton Rouge LA., Southern Standards is committed to excellence. Whether you are looking for a standard poodle for a pet, sport dog to do agility, or a show dog for the conformation ring you should consider us. We take pride in the selection of our breeding stock as well as our standard poodle puppies. Our sires and dams come from coast to coast with focus placed on temperament and looks. They are raised in a family environment resulting in well socialized dogs that are great with children. All of our dogs are AKC registered and are from champion bloodlines. Our goal at Southern Standards is a healthy, well socialized puppy for you and your family.

Choco & Buttercup have a new litter of bouncing baby boys!!  Their puppies, born February 2nd, are all black.  They are all as cute as can be.  If a black Standard puppy is something  you may be interested in, let us know.  There was a true runt in this litter if you want a smaller male.  We love helping people get the perfect puppy for their home.  We also have one apricot male that is four months old.  Out of the smaller puppy stage, but still all puppy love - check him out on the Available Puppies page.

Male vs. Female

Many people believe that female dogs make better pets...female preferences seem to be ingrained in these people. Most calls for puppies are people wanting a "sweet girl". They don't think females display alpha behaviors like "marking" and/or "humping". They believe that they are more docile and attentive and do not participate in fighting over dominance.
