Our Poodles are Beautiful
Inside and Out
Daisy Hill Reds ~
Our Signature Color
Welcome! We are a small, home breeder of top-quality, well-socialized Poodles.
We raise a few thoughtfully planned litters a year for placement in
carefully selected homes. The reason we have only a
few litters is so we can give our puppies the benefit of a full,
family socialization program. We only have a few females to
breed and they
certainly don't have puppies year-round! Please feel free to
contact us if you have questions. Thanks for visiting!

Our Mission ~ Our Passion: To
beautiful Poodles who have sweet friendly personalities, outstanding
intelligence, calm dispositions,
happy self-confidence, physical soundness, excellent health and correct conformation. We strive for it all!

Philosophy: We believe that every puppy
should be prepared to live a full, happy life as a family pet lounging
on the sofa. Some may also enjoy visiting as a Pet Therapy
volunteer, serving as an Assistance Dog or walking around in a show ring
but most importantly, they should be prepared to be happy,
well-socialized family dogs.
With all of that in mind, it's my
responsibility to give them a fabulous start from their first moments of
life in our home so they'll be ready for a life full of options -- to go
out in the world and be happy. Degrees in
teaching, social work and 50+ years of experience in training dogs help
me to give my best to my beloved Daisy Hill Poodles. Why is it so important we "stay small?" I believe the little
things we do when they're young have big results for the rest of their

Family News: In
2008 we were blessed with four grandsons: twins Holden and Hudson;
Hayden and Joshua . On Easter Saturday 2009 we welcomed our first granddaughter, Savannah
Rose. On May 6, 2010 we were blessed with our second granddaughter, Madeline Ellerby. Meet Our Family (see left) if you'd like. We're head-over-heels in love with all of them!
With the demands of farming 2,500 acres, caring for
our dogs, visiting to do pet therapy and wanting to be mobile so we can
visit family in other states, we raise a limited number of litters per
I hope you won't be disappointed if you want a new
Poodle "right now" and
it isn't available when you call. With all that's
going on in our lives, we keep our priorities very clear:
God and Family first and my Poodle hobby follows.
Perhaps your next Poodle puppy will be right here waiting for you when
you call.... or perhaps you'll need to wait a while until he or she is
ready to come home to you. Either way, I assure you, the
Right Poodle is well worth waiting for!

Poodles have marvelous personalities
which make them perfect companions for individuals and families alike.
They're amazingly versatile and adaptable -- as loving companions,
breed conformation competitors, obedience or agility competitors,
devoted therapy dogs or assistance dogs. Poodles can be very successful as Drug-Detection, Tracking or Search & Rescue

Our Poodles are raised to be sound in
mind and body -- healthy both emotionally and physically. We spend many
hours with our dogs every day to insure they have the love and attention
they need and deserve. They live in our home, play in our back
yard and many of them sleep on our bed at night.

Living the Good Life with the Orr Family on St. Simons Island, GA
I'm involved in many
dog-related activities including teaching
obedience classes and taking our dogs and
puppies to visit in nursing homes, memory-care units and
treatment facilities. Richard and I are charter members of our
local AKC-affiliated kennel club and I am an evaluator for the American
Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizen program.
I have also served as an evaluator for Therapy Dog certification for both
Therapy Dogs International, Inc. and Delta Society.
Here I'm conducting a Canine Good Citizen evaluation test for American
Kennel Club. (I'm in red.)
Approximately once every 10 - 12 weeks I administer the "CGC - Final Exam" for
of local obedience classes.
Please visit our Photo Album page (see left) to see some of
our Daisy Hill Alumni in action. Their accomplishments in
Obedience and Agility competition are truly amazing.
Poodle Sizes: If you want a small, easy-to-carry lapdog, you will
probably be happy with a Toy Poodle who will be 10" or less at
the shoulder as an adult. If you prefer a sturdier dog to play
with children and accompany you on walks, hikes and adventures, you may
want a Miniature Poodle who will be taller than 10" but no taller than
15" at the shoulder. Standard Poodles are over 15" at the
shoulder, with some reaching as much as 30" at the shoulder.
Cute as a button!

We're blessed to live on a grain farm in
North Dakota where we have plenty of room for our dogs and puppies to
run and play, enjoying fresh air and exercise every day. We've found Poodles to be
intelligent, affectionate, devoted companions -- beautiful in every way
possible, including their wonderful non-shedding plush coats. With
regular brushing and trimming, you'll find they are one of the cleanest,
easiest dogs to live with -- without the nuisance of pet hair on
clothing and furniture.
While we admire Poodles in elegant
show-clips, ours wear a more casual puppy or sporting
clip. On a typical day you'll find our Poodles and Chihuahuas
riding along with us in our mini-van or pick-up, playing in the yard
and participating in assorted family adventures. We find that our dogs enjoy being by our sides as much as possible, and
we wouldn't have it any other way. At home our dogs and puppies are an
important part of our family, and as "empty nesters" we have lots of
time and attention to shower on our "canine kids."
Poodles are Great
Companions for Families of All Ages.

So happy together -- Exactly what we pray for!!!

Important: It has come to our
attention that there are unscrupulous people using "Daisy Hill" to
identify their puppies or dogs for sale on the Internet. We are
angry they have stolen our name and are trying to capitalize on our good
reputation! How dare they?
We are the one and only - the original Daisy Hill Poodles.
Furthermore, we have NEVER, EVER sold any of our AKC registered Poodles
to be mass produced by amateurs or bastardized as mutts to create
mixed-breeds! If you find others using our name in association
with any kind of mutt-doodles, it is NOT with our blessing
or approval -- and most certainly NOT with one of our AKC-registered
The recent obsession with mass
production of get-rich-quick "designer dogs" is one of the many
reasons why we do not sell our Poodles for breeding. If you would
like any further information please contact us.
