Our Story

Donnchada Poodles


Donnchada Poodles began in 1973 with the birth of our first litter of standard poodles. The seven puppies were from a daughter of Ch. Bel Tor Success Story and sired by a young stud CH. Pass In Debauchery, six of the pups finished their AKC Championships and one became the All Breed Best In Show winner. This was the start of a never-ending love of poodles, breeding and exhibiting that continues to this day. 

Since that time Donnchada Poodles focus has been to breed beautiful healthy temperamentally sound miniature and standard poodles. 

Donnchada Poodles strives to breed poodles who excel in the conformation ring, in performance events, the obedience ring as therapy dogs and especially as a great companion dogs.
