Hear what families who own our dogs have to say!

Hi Cynthia,
Jasper & Ryley (picture on right) are so wonderful!  Everywhere they go, they get so many compliments!  They have awesome temperaments.
They get along so well with each other and other dogs and love people!  They're so fun and happyThey’re both super sweet and love to give kisses.  Ryley is a little more dominant and loves to hog the attention.  No matter what you laugh at, he’s right in your face giving kisses!  Jasper gets a little jealous and likes to use his voice at Ryley.  But they’re such good buddies and play really good with each other.  They’re both spoiled with love and give lots back in return!

    Physically Kanga, (pictured above) has a perfect tail and a beautiful head. She looks a bit long in the body but she measures square. . Kanga's right front foot turns out and has white hairs through her otherwise stunning brown coat. David loves the white hairs. Kanga has a long, stride, and would at times rather leap in the air than have her feet on the ground. She is 15.5 pounds, height is 16 inches.

  • Please tell us about any training your puppy has participated in.

    Puppy Head Start, Terrible Teens, Beginner Agility She will continue her education with a minimum of 2 years. After all .... she’s a poodle. Higher education is mandatory.

  • Tell us what your puppy enjoys doing, or what you enjoy doing with your puppy.

    Fetch, run and play. She is rational in that you can understand what she needs or wants. David loves everything about her. Lots of positive, upbeat energy. Not one angry bone in her body. No aggression ; only love me, love you, love me. She can entertain herself. For example: dragging her 4 foot flamingo and tossing it in the air over her back or pawing the door stop “ boing, boing, boing. She is insane over David’s lacrosse stick to the point he has to find different places to hide it She seems to remember ALL his hiding places. She even brings the ball and puts it in the pocket of the lacrosse stick!! She is also good at tracking birds and animals in the yard. My favorite part is the joy she brings my son. They are so in love.  Kanga has just signed up for flyball. She just finished her last intro to agility class and smoked the rest of the class!

  • Please describe your puppy's temperament and personality. How would you rate your puppy's intelligence?

    Kanga is outgoing and curious. Loves being where the people are. Very attentive and persistent, she has us laughing everyday. She is so funny. She is extremely smart. On a 1 to 10 scale definitely a 10. There is a lot of dog to work with. Kanga owns critical thinking skills.

  • Has your puppy had any health issues?

    Kanga tore one of her foot pads running around the pool. There wasn’t any bleeding ( thank goodness) She has healed completely. It did require a trip to the ER for dogs. We won’t be making that mistake again. She wouldn’t eat her vitamin so we switched to powder. She is a good eater and drinks plenty of water.  DOB 11-12-17 @ 9 months

  • Please give us an update of your puppy's first year of life.

    Sundance is doing well. Upon bringing her home she potty trained quickly and fit right in with our family. She is great with our 21 month old son and spends most of her time chasing him around the house. She has been kept vaccinated and has been spayed. She participated in 12, hour long puppy training sessions. She enjoyed these very much. She is very smart, and aside from obviously still being a puppy and exhibiting normal puppy behavior, she is generally well behaved.

  • Would you recommend Echocreek Poodles to family and friends?

    yes

  • What are the best things about your puppy?

    Hands down the best thing about Sundance is how well she interacts with our toddler. She has never once gotten angry with him or exhibited any kind of aggression towards him, even on the occasion that them chasing each other around the house end with them toppling over each other. She is very loyal and does not stray from home even when we spend time in the front yard rather than the fenced in back yard.

  • Is there anything you would change about your puppy?

    Aside from tearing up the yard while trying to catch the pocket gophers that have been the bane of her existence, and her cat-like fascination with sparkly Christmas tree ornaments, she is well behaved and there is not anything we would change about her.

  • What is the weight, height, and overall appearance of your puppy?

    She is 12" tall, weighs 11 pounds and has a thin build. Visitors usually comment on how long her legs are.

  • How has the health of your puppy been? Please let us know of any challenges.

    Sundance has been very healthy aside from a stomach bug that she picked up shortly after bringing her home. That was remedied with a single trip to the vet and medication. We have had no health problems or concerns since. She is on monthly heartworm preventative and is the picture of health so far.  3-19-17 @ 12 months

  • Please tell us about any training your puppy has participated in.

    Zeke and I have had three sessions with a young lady outside of Stillwater. She has worked on basics and behavior,; walking with me, greeting others, how to act when others want to pet him. That’s a costant challenge since we live and walk on the OSU campus.

  • Tell us what your puppy enjoys doing, or what you enjoy doing with your puppy.

    Zeke and I love taking walks. However, his pulling me and wanting to go back and forth in front of me is a constant challenge. He’s a. Champion fetcher of balls, sticks, etc. He loves to throw Joes cups, or a long strap up in the air and get under them like a baseball player to catch them. He watches tv , and he watched all of the movie Bolt with me. Zeke looks in a full length mirror and can’t figure out why he can see me in it and I’m also standing behind him. He tries to get into the mirror.

  • Please describe your puppy's temperament and personality. How would you rate your puppy's intelligence?

    He has a playful, loving temperament but will bark and sass me when I get after him. He’s very playful but is ready for a nap, almost anytime. He can entertain himself very well. but he wants to keep an eye on me. Probably the most intelligent dog I’ve had .

Cynthia and Doc,

My wife and I purchased a miniature poodle from you 17 years ago! We drive up from Plano, TX. to pick him up. We named him Smokey and he was a joyous part of our life for all these years.

 

I say 'was' because I am sorry to report that our Smokey died of natural causes on April 10th. He went peacefully in his sleep. He was a wonderful dog and lived quite the life! He travelled with us to Colorado, Tennessee, Oklahoma, and many other places! He was quite the swimmer and spent many happy days with us in our pool. He will be missed greatly.

 

At any rate, we are possibly looking for another puppy and you are the folks we first thought about. I hope you are still around! 

 

Please let me know that you are still breeding wonderful little pups that want a loving home.

Quinn turned one year old on 9/11/19. We thought we would write to you about Quinn’s first year. What an amazing year she has had! Quinn graduated beginner and Intermediate training. She passed her AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy test (with flying colors) and will next be enrolled in a CGC class with hopes of passing that test as well. She is showing great strides with obedience training and will hopefully compete in Obedience and Rally.

She has been successful in Barn Hunt earning her RATI (instinct) title and earning a couple Novice level legs (often with a first place and even a High In Class). She has begun the “dog sport life” and is doing well with long car rides to events and hotel stays. She is friendly with people and dogs at these events. Everyone remarks at how beautiful she is! She has gone as far as western Pennsylvania and western New York. She even got to visit Niagara Falls!

Where she really shines is agility. She is athletic and nimble, making the sport look easy. She is keen to learn new things, and loves to RUN around the course! She is eligible to begin competing agility at 15 months of age, so she is a few months away, but we look forward to seeing her excel in this sport.

At home she is very playful. She loves to play with 13 year old Benson (a Bennett son from you!) and 4 year old mini schnauzer, Lily. She is a goofy, loving dog who keeps us laughing. We are happy to have her in our lives and look forward to the journey ahead with her.

We hope to write you many more emails about her successes. Thank you for producing such joyous, loving, and healthy dogs. We have included many photos. We hope they bring you a smile.

Sincerely,
Marcia, Lauren, Benson, and of course Quinn.


I have included a photo from her Barn Hunt Trial this morning.

    Phryne is a beautiful girl and is a graceful, intelligent "tom-girl" that loves to run, dig, chase, play soccer, and squeak her toys (especially when I am on the phone.) She LOVES people and has moved on from her puppy biting teething phase to a licking everyone phase. She also LOVES her groomer Tiffany, and LOVES her vet Dr. Jason and all the girls at the office (they call her French Phry). She has improved dramatically with her grooming, and has no problem with ear plucking, whether at the vet or with Tiffany, however, she still HATES having her front paws messed with and can squirm and wriggle around like a silly girl. Her two favorite things to do in life are play Frisbee, and soccer. She can now catch her Frisbee in the air and is very proud of herself - she jumps and twists and flies through the air like a border collie! We only take walks now in the early morning, or later in the day when it cools off, but before the mosquitoes come out - a very short window of time. She is good on leash, but still gets soooo excited to see people that she pulls and wants to run....more work to be done when "walking weather" returns. She still likes to chase the cat , but they seem to be getting more used to each other...she wants him to play with her and he just wants to stare at her in a judgemental fashion. She is potty trained outside, and also on her grass path in the garage, and she goes to the garage door if its at night, or raining....thank goodness for me! I love her soooooo much, and everyone she meets at the Petco , or PetSupermarket always comment on how gorgeous she is. Oh - she also loves to play with other dogs now - she used to ignore them in favor of their "people." She's played with a standard poodle, mini poodle, toy poodle, siberian husky, labs, and german shephards...when the older dogs let her know they are done playing, she lays down next to them and waits a few minutes, before starting up again! I could go on and on......

  • Please tell us about any training your puppy has participated in.

    Phryne has been through puppy 1, and puppy 2 training, and goes to puppy playtime every weekend (almost) for an hour. I also spend about 2 hours each day training inside and outside. She knows her sit, down, stay, come (although she selectively does that still...especially if an interesting butterfly, or something captures her attention), and she is doing pretty good at wait...she knows to sit and wait before she can go through the door. I will take her to some type of activity and futher training once she has her spay procedure in 2 weeks.

  • Has your puppy had any health issues?

    Phryne has had only one issue - she had an ear infection in both ears. Dr. Jason determined the humidity and the fact that her ear hair grows in very quickly and very dense in her ears helped it along. After a course of otomax and regular (daily) cleaning with Pharmaseb flush, it finally went away. I now have her ears plucked every time she is groomed, and checked regularly at the vet.  DOB 10-17-17 @ 14 months

  • Do you have any comments about your puppy or the purchase process?

  • We are so pleased with our puppy, Frenchie from Echocreek Poodles, we spent a year researching breeders, with a lot of prayers. We more than got our money's worth from this Beautiful, Smart, Intelligent, easy to train Poodle. No, amount of money could ever buy him from us! We bonded with this little guy the first day we got him.

  • Would you recommend Echocreek Poodles to family and friends?

  • yes

  • What is your favorite thing to do with your puppy?

  • Walks, training sessions, watching other pet owners bonding and playing with him, because he has so much personality!

  • Do you have anything else to share?

  • We have had a cold, wet winter since Frenchie came home. He is so athletic loves to run, jump, dance and play we will have much more to share when the weather gets warmer. This little guy Never stops wanting to learn new things! He has brought much life back into our home! (sometimes too much) LOL 

  • Date of report 1-12-2019

  • Do you have any comments about your puppy or the purchase process?

  • I have never had such a happy and completely pleasant puppy. She is a joy to be around. There is never a dull moment with Quinn and she loves having the two older dogs home with her. (Benson is Bennet and Ally's pup and my daughter's mini Schnauzer, Lily) Quinn has been going to puppy classes, barn hunt competitions to watch and get a sense of it, agility training classes with Lily and is a great car traveler. When she is 6 months old we feel she is going to be great at agility and barn hunt and we can't wait to start her. This is my third Echocreek poodle and I have complete faith in Cynthia as a breeder. Her puppies have been the loves of my life!

  • Would you recommend Echocreek Poodles to family and friends?

  • yes

  • What is your favorite thing to do with your puppy?

  • I am enjoying teaching her to do the commands at the puppy class. She is very bright and catches on quickly.

  • Do you have anything else to share?

  • she is thinner than I like to see and I have been to the Vet several times to have her tested for parasites and all eight tests were negative. She eats the Royal Canin poodle puppy kibble and Blue Buffalo puppy kibble and a regular Royal Canin puppy kibble and the Vet is not worried about her weight as all blood tests and stool tests are indicating that she is very healthy. Dr. Watson feels that once she is settled down and less of a busy puppy then she will put on weight.

  • Tell us how your puppy is doing in general. Include height and weight and anything else you'd like to include!

  • Tucker is a beautiful miniature poodle. When I say beautiful I mean temperament as well as physique. We receive compliments from everyone from tour vet, to the groomer, to our neighbors. He is active and smart. He runs with my active teenage boys. He has learned many commands and in general has a desire to please personality. He loves to be with our family wherever we might go! I could not ask for a better addition to our "pack".

  • Please tell us about any training your puppy has participated in.

  • Tucker started his training with Doc and Cynthia Sublet. When we brought him home he was able to understand come, sit, and (lie) down. He has added to these: high five, shake, roll over, off, no bark and stay. He actually rings a bell to go outside. He has also taught himself how to open our pantry door

  • Tell us what your puppy enjoys doing, or what you enjoy doing with your puppy.

  • He loves to play fetch and tug. He loves to run and wrestle with my boys. ( yes this includes my husband) He will also watch TV with us. His favorites are shows with dogs and horses, however, at Christmas we discovered his love for Rudolph.

  • Please describe your puppy's temperament and personality. How would you rate your puppy's intelligence?

  • He is sweet, willing to please, loving, and happy. He is very smart. My two teenage boys taught him most of his tricks. He was able to learn each one after only a couple of days each. He has learned to tell us what he wants. If his water bowl is empty he rolls it next to the wall. At first he would not let us know he wanted to go outside. We hung a bell on the door and he now rings the bell when he wants to go outside. And he LOVES to be outside and run and prance!

  • Has your puppy had any health issues?

  • Tucker is very healthy. And has only been to the vet twice. These were for wellness checks and shots.
