Shalom Farms & Olive U Standard Poodles-

Setting The Standard for Standard Poodles since the late 90's, and Guaranteeing Our Puppies for Life!!

Operation Procedures:

We are very dedicated to raising the best puppies possible, and bettering the breed with every generation. We stand behind our puppies 100%, all of our puppies come with a 2-Year Genetic Guarantee, a 3-Year OFA Hip Rating Of “Good” or better, a Lifetime Guarantee against Hip/Elbow Dysplasia*, a Lifetime Nutrition Guarantee*, a Health Certificate, a Collar and a Leash, they are up to date on all age appropriate vaccinations and dewormings, we dock the tails at show standards, and remove due claws unless requested by the adopter before docking takes place, providing that the puppy is paid in full.


*Lifetime Nutrition Guarantee/Lifetime Hip Guarantee is only valid if puppies are kept strictly on Life’s Abundance. Please note: This guarantee is intended to encourage our buyer’s to feed a high-quality food, and to help our Buyer’s be more confident in their purchase. If you choose to feed a food other than Life’s Abundance, it DOES NOT void the Genetic Guarantee and the OFA Hip Rating Guarantee, it only voids the Nutritional Warranty and Lifetime Hip and Elbow.


     We only want our puppies to be placed with people that will show them the same love and care that we do, therefore, we carefully evaluate each prospective Buyer.  We are committed to find the "Right Home" not just a "Good home", therefore, we reserve the right to refuse a sale to anyone.  If you are interested in bringing one of our beautiful puppies into your family, Please send us an email with a little bit about you and your family, how you intend to care for the puppy, your phone number and a good time to call, so that we can talk with you. If you are within reasonable driving distance, we like for you to be able to come and meet us, and our dogs. We understand, however, that this is not always possible, so therefore we do ship our puppies through the airlines, we prefer United because they have a PetSafe program, we also occasionally offer delivery if we have multiple deliveries where everyone can chip in and cover our gas. Shipping for an 8 week old puppy is generally $350-400, if we know your puppy will be shipping, we will begin crate training them two or more weeks in advance so that they are accustom to their crate, and this minimizes stress.


     Since Standard Poodles must be brushed and combed weekly, along with a full grooming every 4 weeks, (minimum of a bath, blow dry, face, feet, tail and sanitary areas shaved, and coat trimmed to be kept at manageable length), we begin grooming them around 4 weeks, and regroom them every 7-10 days until they go to their new homes. This ensures that the puppies will be comfortable with groomings.


     We gladly welcome any serious prospective buyer’s to visit us, we are also very protective of our puppies, and we ask that you respect that. We allow visits to puppies after they are two weeks old and their eyes are open, we do not allow visitations between 5-6 weeks until the puppies get their first vaccination at 6 weeks.


     Since we are Jewish and keep the Friday to Saturday night Shabbat (Sabbath) we do not allow pick-up, nor do we ship on Friday's and Saturday's, as we feel it is irresponsible to turn a puppy over to their new owner without being available to answer questions, and check on the puppy.  Therefore, puppies that turn 8 weeks on a Friday or on a Saturday, will be available for pick up/shipped out on the following Sunday, this ensures we will have time to talk with you personally when you pick up your puppy, or via email or phone when you pick up your puppy from the airport, and answer any last minute questions you have.


     We are dedicated to a lifetime relationship with our buyers, so if at anytime during your puppy’s life you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email us.


     We always appreciate your Feedback, and love to be kept UTD on all of our puppies, and see how they have grown up!


     All of our puppies are sold on Limited Registration with a spay/neuter agreement. Puppies sold on Limited Registration for PET ONLY are usually around $1,500-2,000, depending on color, gender, size, confirmation, and parents. Deposits are a minimum of $250, deposits are always non-refundable. We understand that purchasing a puppy is a large investment, and we are more than willing to accept payments. We DO NOT believe in Back Yard Breeders, PuppyMills, Cross breeds or kennels, and our contract prohibits our puppies to being subject to those conditions. We occasionally will release a puppy with breeding rights as a show prospect to APPROVED BREEDERS who share the same love and passion for the breed that we do, with the intention of always breeding to better the breed.  If we place one with full registration, it's on a Co-Ownership agreement until Championship title is achieved through one of the following registries: AKC, UKC, CKC, or IABCA. On puppies released as show prospects, we guarantee a minimum of a National Championship title through IABCA (See Terms Of Contract). All dogs intended to be bred to puppies we release as show/breeding prospects, must be approved by Olive U Standard Poodles for specific genetic traits that would lower the Standard. Purchaser of Show Prospects have pick over purchaser of Companion puppies. Olive U Standard Poodles Reserves the pick puppy our of every litter.


     If for any reason you can no longer care for one of our puppies, then you must return your puppy to us for Re-Homing.


     We encourage you to speak at length with us, and our references, read our reviews, and review contract, and be absolutely sure that this is the puppy for you, BEFORE you place your deposit, as due the nature of the business, deposits and payments are always Non-Refundable, but are transferable to another litter/available puppy.
