From our Family... to YOURS!
We traded our 'subdivision' house for a farm and love it! Our toddlers help with socializing the puppies, gathering chicken eggs, playing with the Nigerian Dwarf goats, feeding the sheep and even helping shear them! We wanted our children to grow up being close to nature and animals. And thus your family may benefit from our endeavors in finding fulfillment and vitality through a FarmLife.
You are ensured that your puppies have been socialized daily with children and given the best possible start to life. As a small family farm breeder, we are dedicated to producing your healthy, intelligent, and versatile Standard Poodle puppy. We use Puppy Culture methods to maximize the effectiveness of socialization and learning in early puppyhood. We want our poodles to show sweet loving temperament and an eagerness to serve.
Our ultimate goal is your “perfect” dog with the temperament ideal to your family. Puppies are evaluated with Volhard’s Puppy Aptitude Test to help you get the pet with the temperament best suited to your family (based on your family’s lifestyle, needs, and energies). See the pdf attachment for more info on this test. Located in Parma, Idaho, we do ship across the United States.

When the pups have been weaned from their moms, they live with their dad, Jack. They have a lot of fun playing with and keeping him on his toes. The toddlers also enjoy Jack, he has been calm and understanding with the children. Jack should pass his beautiful coat and correct head and body structure to his offspring.
Jack is 68 lbs; 27 height to shoulder.
Ginger has a high emotional intelligence; senses our moods and provides comfort. Even as a calm and mellow dog, she does enjoy a nice lake or puddle and going hiking. She came to us from a reputable breeder/organic farm in Illinois. Her pups are an excellent choice for service as they are not jumpy or hyper but still eager to please. Ginger is 45 lbs; 23 inches.
Fancy is our gorgeous red female. She is our offspring of Jack/Ginger. Elegant and Courteous are words that come to mind seeing Fancy. Compliments for her looks and her behavior everywhere we go. Much like her mom, Fancy is super chill with our children and also with other small dogs. Fancy is slightly taller and stands at 25 inches and weighs 50 lbs.
Rosie is the puppy we couldn't resist to keep from the 2020 litter of Fancy/Charlie. Well behaved and so playful. We enjoy babies of all kinds, especially puppies! Rosie is a red curly, moen size dog. Gorgeous and in a smaller package.
Ginger & Jack make such sweet and mellow puppies. She has a year to rest in-between litters and is well taken care of to make sure she (and we) are ready to take on the commitment of another set of puppies to raise and socialize and get ready for your families! We do take our job seriously to maintain high quality standards in our breeding practices. Puppies will be ready to go home around Christmas time.

As with one previous litter, Jack and Ginger impress us with their lovely mellow and friendly pups. Jack is super mellow, as is Ginger, and both are attentive and intelligent. So much attention and time socializing has been given to the pups, they are all very friendly. All come when called and love to play with people. Several pups adopted are being trained for medical service. Pups arrived are so many different colors: red, apricot, beige, cream/white.
Fancy was bred to Charlie, a local red moyen (medium) standard poodle. So friendly and obedient, he's a happy fellow. At 25 lbs, Charlie is a smaller size, easier to handle and still considered 'standard poodle' by AKC. Pups will be a more manageable size for those who travel and lift their dog often. Exceptionally gorgeous and also sweet cuddly puppies:
no more puppies available. Accepting applications for a moen litter in 2022.
"She's becoming wonderfully obedient even with lots of distraction around. She's started ringing a bell to let us know she needs to go out. And still sweet as can be with our two year old."
"Picture of Honey after first haircut. He is so handsome."
"He's perfect! Our girls are so excited!"
"Just wanted you to know how Sundance is doing. He knows his name and comes when he's called. He sits on command and knows lay down. He retrieves a ball and brings it back and is learning the "give" command. Goes to the door to go potty, no accidents for over 2 wks. We are very impressed with his personality and his willingness to please."
"As you would expect, he loves to play, run, & cuddle. Jersey has a big boy bark & a little cautious to make a friend. That will change in two weeks with trips to close by dog parks, after the shots are absorbed.
We love him & want to thank you for your caring & professional breeding program & especially patience with us, your buyers."
"Update on Max. Very loving. And surprise?! He loves, loves, loves to retrieve and return. Balls, shoes, toys, everything! He would probably be a natural bird dog or retriever for service work. He loves Aubrey and is very in touch with her feelings when she gets hurt or sad and loves to follow her around the house which makes her very happy. I am very happy with his desire to please me and it shows in his willingness to learn all the time." Kristy
"We named her Chloe. I wanted to let you and your kiddos know that we love her so very much!!! She's a wonderful sweet puppy!"
"Just wanted to thank you for the poodle. Sharon loves the dog and is driving her around to get her used to the car. Everything went perfect. Thanks again."
"Scout is her name and the cats and her are making friends :) "
"I always advocate to everyone I know about how amazing Vitality Farm and Poodles is because you truly put in time, effort, and love to all of the dogs. And we definitely feel like you are a part of our family!" Martha
"My experience with you guys was amazing. Whenever I would want to see her you'd go above and beyond to video chat, have little photo shoots, and send me cute little videos.They also made sure that their pups were well-nurtured and would never treat them wrongfully! Abby is a wonder to be with. I take walks with her, she cuddles with me, gives me kisses, and attracts a lot of attention."
"Koda is doing fabulous! He loves Sam and they play together all the time! He has a great personality and is so loving! We are so glad to add him as a new addition to our family!"
"He's doing really well. We are all in love with our new baby. He's learning to adapt to family routines & house rules. He is such a sweetie pie. Wouldn't hurt a fly."
"Benny's doing great and growing fast! He is so calm and people are impressed that he's only a puppy. He gets a lot of attention and compliments."
"Sophie is the sweetest and brings so much light to my life every day. Thank you for helping me so easily choose the best fit for a puppy I could ever imagine and for taking such good care of her during her first days, with healthy food, socialization, and love. She is healthy and happy, and it has been easy for us to bond and learn together."
"Matisse looking handsome. I am so happy with him. It's a mutual love fest. Having a hard time teaching "come", because he's always right there! So smart, and very mellow and calm, except when playing with his brother. The two of them together are a pair of wild things."
"Just wanted to let you know how much we are loving the new puppy. He is so sweet and calm, even when the kids are playing with his paws and tail. And he is a champ at holding his potty! He took to my husband and daughter right away (no cheese needed). I think we will be naming him Henry."
"We are absolutely in love with our baby boy, Hiro. He has drastically impacted our lives in the most positive of ways and I can't imagine life without him. Hiro is a sweet and shy puppy, but with his humans, he is full of energy and joy. He has already gone on an Oregon Coast adventure since coming home and has discovered the fun of digging in the sand. Sue and Vitaliy are wonderful to work with. I could tell immediately that they put much love and care into each of the puppies. We are happy to include them into our family with Hiro!"
"He's taken really well to our boys. We had only a couple of times that he went to the bathroom in the house. We took him to the back door after each time. Now he goes to the back door before he goes to the bathroom. And will wait to go outside. He has his kennel with your blanket inside of it he will use when he's overwhelmed. He's getting much better on the leash and still loves to play catch and run as fast as he can through the yard. Thank you so much, he has brought so much joy into our home."
"I love her so much and she is so smart. She has learned words so quickly. We both hate to be separated. I cried when I left her at the vet (for spaying). She is friendly-the first thing I did was get her chipped after her shots."
