Powder Valley Poodles
Our Response to COVID-19
We at Powder Valley Poodles do not take the safety and well-being of our clients for granted. We want to keep you safe. We want to keep our families safe AND we want you all to be able to add some joy and companionship to your lives by being able to purchase one of our wonderful puppies. Unless one of us shows ANY signs of illness we will continue to provide our puppies to those that desire them. However, we have implemented some VERY strict guidelines.
As breeders of puppies we are already VERY well trained in virus eradication. We ALREADY practice the cleaning protocols necessary to stay virus-free and to keep our puppies, clients and family members safe — not only from COVID-19, but from any other virus that may be brought unintentionally onto the premises. Virus prevention is a way of life here. It always has been and it always will be. Bringing certain fairly common viruses onto the property can kill every puppy on the premises. It is something that is always forefront in our minds. Now, all we need to do — and have been doing even before the spread of COVID-19 hit Colorado — is treat our “People Space” the same as we treat our “Puppy Space” and leave the hugging and hand shakes for later when this is all over. We have been doing this for several weeks as many of our clients are coming in from other states and I felt that it was better to be safe and proactive. This means we have PLENTY of hand sanitizer, virucide, and disinfectant. And, more importantly — we have been using them.
So please, do not hesitate to call on us in order to provide a puppy or dog. But also — PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE follow this protocol when visiting. We will show puppies by appointment only. (this is normal for us). We ask that if you show — or anyone in your family shows — signs of illness: cough, congestion, runny nose, sore throat or headache, DO NOT COME You may send a friend or family member who has not been exposed. Also, when you get here please touch NOTHING. Wait until you are greeted by someone from Powder Valley Poodles. You may wait on the little porch that fronts the Powder Valley Poodles office (office is behind and unattached to the house. The office has a red metal roof). Please leave everyone else that came with you (and try to limit that number) in the car. One of us will come out to greet you. We will then give you an option of hand sanitizer or gloves. Please do NOT touch ANYTHING on the premises until you have been either “sanitized” or gloved up. Everyone in your party will be asked to do the same. Small children (6 and under) will be asked to remain in the vehicle for most of the visit. They don’t understand that they can not touch everything that attracts them.
We hope that everyone understands the importance of these directions. Please do not hesitate to call if you have questions…. Be well, stay safe, and take this free time many of you have been given to finally get that puppy you have always wanted but didn’t have the time for. Well — you’ve got time now! and if funds are a problem please read the update on our “Policies and Pricing Page”. Thank you, Terry, Powder Valley Poodles

We have new information in our “Policies and Prices page” Be sure to take a look!
Our miniature, toy, and standard poodles are structurally correct, genetically superior and easily trained. Powder Valley Poodles puppies are the very best dogs available. We guarantee it.
Although you can pay a whole lot more for a puppy somewhere else, you simply will not find a better dog for your family. Our dogs are loyal, long-lived and people-oriented. They are playful, affectionate, and healthy. They are the perfect family dog, companion and Service Dog.
Sometimes you have to wait a little longer to get one of our puppies because we tend to have fairly long waiting lists and early deposits. There is a reason for those long waiting lists. People recognize quality.
We are not a large multi-dog kennel. Our dogs live in the house with us and our puppies are born in the house and generally are not outside unless we are outside with them. They are raised with other dogs, large and small, cats, and children.
