Health Screening: We use the following Health Screening procedures: No Shortcuts! Standard Poodle CHIC requirements accomplished on all dogs to be used for breeding, OFA evaluation and/or PennHip evaluation, YEARLY CERF evaluations and results registered, Autoimmune thyroiditis OFA evaluation from an approved laboratory, Sebaceous Adenitis OFA evaluation by approved lab.
RAISING YOUR STANDARDS
Leading the Poodle breed in health screenings achieved and registered, Julie and Kirk Reed of Tiara Black Standard Poodles challenge other Poodle Breeders to accomplish at least the basic CHIC health screenings always before breeding their Poodles. Currently breeding the sixth generation of Tiara CHIC designated Standard Poodles, the Reeds place a great concern for increased/maintained longevity averages in their line of handsome, winning Poodles.
CHIC is an acronym for Canine Health Information Center and every shopper of any breed of dog or cat should be made aware of the great information that can be gleaned from that database.
The Tiara Poodles are reared holistically and the breeders are currently feeding the third generation fed a raw diet. New owners are encouraged to rear their dogs the same and there is an extensive network or "clan" as they refer to themselves of the Tiara Poodle owners.
Public education is a primary focus and new fanciers are encouraged to become involved in dog sports. The Tiara Poodles are very athletic and can be seen winning in agility trials in several regions of the United States.
Coefficiencies of inbreeding (COIs) are produced at under 6 % for 10 generations at Tiara. The average in Std Pdls is now at or just over 20% for 10 generations. The Std Pdl gene pool is thought to be shrinking.
There are many interesting links to study on all the above subjects at www.tiarapoodles.com
ADDITIONALLY - most dogs of modern times bred by Tiara are also given these health screenings with results registered on www.offa.org: Patella, Shoulders, von Williebrands DNA, Cardiac and we are beginning to donate DNA Samples for Canine Health Research through CHIC.
We have given Personality Profiles to three generations. Important is what we do to maintain health and that includes rearing the dogs on a no grain diet, limiting vaccines and caring for the dogs holistically. All of our personal dogs are kept in beautiful condition and professionally groomed several times each month.
A record 40 Std Pdls have been designated CHIC that were bred by Tiara Poodles; the first of these over six generations ago was born in 1984. Only dogs designated CHIC have been used since for breeding by Tiara. The following are CHIC dogs bred by Tiara and to be considered for future breedings within this next decade either by Tiara Poodles or the co-owners or owners of the dogs: Am Ch Tiara Quentin Jack (NJ), GRCH Tiara Windsor Dot Com (AZ), GRCH Tiara Zanita (CA), U-Ch Tiara Bonita Mia (CA), UWP, GRCH Kirley Alatiara Clarabella (CA), UWP, GRCH Tiara D'Aire (CA), GRCH Tiara Frappuccina (CA), U-Ch Tiara Gigi (AZ), GRCH Tiara Ivan (CA), GRCH Tiara Jett Rocks (CA), U-Ch Tiara Jovita (CA), Tiara Karma of Belcanto (CA) our 40th CHIC!, GRCH Tiara Loreili (CA), Tiara Lucas (CA), AM CH/UKC GRCH Tiara Nexus (CA), GRCH Tiara Obla-di, Obla-da (CA), GRCH Tiara Paris Sez That's Hot (CA) our 41st CHIC! and posting as CHIC next month: Tiara Phoebe Fabulous.
