WELCOME TO SHIANN( pronounced Cheyenne)
This is the home of champion, health tested poodles. At this point in time we show at three different venues. We show with the American Kennel Club/ United Kennel Club and the International All Breed Canine Association. All of these venues have something different to offer there competitors and the rules are different at each venue.As a breeder it helps me to pick and chose the best possible dogs available for my breeding program. I am very serious about my dogs and my breeding program. At this time I am part of two of the American Kennel Clubs breeder programs.. The first is the American Kennel Clubs Breeder Of Merit Program. The second is The American Kennel Clubs Bred With Heart Program. Heart stands for Health,, Education, Accountability, Responsibility and Tradition. I feel very honored and proud to be a part of each of these programs. I continually strive to do the best for my dogs and my breed and both of these programs will help me to do just that. Since the summer of 2010 my dogs have consecutively been in the top ten with the United Kennel Club. In 2010 we had 5 in the top ten one of which was the number one . In 2011 we again had the number one poodle and a total of 4 in the top ten. For the years 2012/2013 we had 2 in the top ten. We had the number 2 poodle in 2013 and again in 2014 with a total of 4 in the top ten for 2014. In 2015 we still had one in the top ten with only showing two weekends. In 2016 we had 2 dogs in the top ten. In 2017 we also had two in the top ten.We had number 6 and number 8. Congratulations to Rena and GoGo.
We have been breeding dogs since the early 80's. We started with The German Shepherd Dog in 1976. I started out in obedience and branched off from there to conformation,sledding,search and rescue and protection training . I have started doing noseworks , agility and trick training with my poodles. It is so much fun. . I absolutely cherish the relationship I have built with animals. I thank my mother for all her years going to shows and classes with me as a teenager. For without my mothers dedication to me I would never have been able to learn all I have about training, showing or breeding better dogs.
I no longer breed toy/dwarf Poodles. Now I concentrate completely on the Miniature Poodle in Red/Apricot and black. I have found through the years that this size poodle is the most compatible of all sizes. They are big enough to be dogs yet small enough to live in a smaller environment. They also are the healthiest of the three sizes. We are so very blessed to be able to share our lives with these magnificent animals. Please look on our puppy page for birth announcements. We have two girls that have been bred. They are expecting puppies in early to late Sept. They should be black/red/apricot.
I hope you enjoy . I do try and change the pictures often when builder is up and working so please stop by occasionally to see what is new at Shiann.
