I'm Lyric - > owner, trainer, breeder, mother, dog mom!
I was blessed with becoming a dog trainer at the age of 13 under a mentor. Opening STONEHAVEN K9 training when I was 15 years old with my mentor by me. My training program has grown nonstop for the last ten years, and we are so proud!
I'm now a mother of two, a daughter, and a son—a fiance to Christopher and owner of twelve wonderful dogs.
My passion for my family and dogs never ends. My pickiness for temperament has built me up with my training career and produced even-tempered dogs suited for workability or simply a loving pet.
My dogs are a top priority in the care and training they receive from me. I aim to title our dogs in Canine Good Citizen tests, Urban Canine, Community Canine, and some of our poodles are even titled in Duck hunting retrieval.
Our dogs are used to running, playing, and simply engaging in a large pack of 10 or more daily; they are well-rounded, happy, and lucky with other animals and people!
Our adult dogs are nothing less than friendly, and they are oriented with people, other dogs, and children. Our dogs get to visit public locations regularly to maintain their training and evaluate and maintain a positive temperament from each breeding prospect. My Program is frequently growing, as we put a lot back into our program, their housing, their care, and upkeep with training.
We breed colored poodles suited for sports work as a gun dog prospect, service dog, therapy dog, or a well-suited couch potato. We focus on merles, phantoms, and brindles in our breeding program for poodles. We only breed poodles when we are deciding to hold back a puppy.
Parents & future prospects are Health tested from OFA, and embark for genetics and DNA, many of our dogs are from Champion Show lines. We specialize in poodles from 30 - 50 pounds. 17"- 27" at the shoulder.
Our Sheepadoodles have two sizes based on our momma's bloodlines, where genetics plays a large role.
Our mediums/Moyens are 35-50 pounds; they are 19- 22" at the shoulder.
Our standards are 60-75 pounds max, with 23-27" the shoulder.
My Whoodles are f1 and f1b generation; as of 2022, we will only be focused on mini f1 Whoodles.
Our Standard f1 whoodles are between 30-50 pounds fully grown.
Our minis we can only estimate until we produce our first litter.
Our dogs are health tested to high standards with OFA, as well as DNA tested. You can view our dog's profiles on the OUR DOGS page, under the about section.
Our dogs receive health clearances for HIPS, ELBOWS, EYES, CARDIAC, PATELLAS, and anything else the breed standard suggests that we don't have already listed here.

When reaching our, please list all of the questions you have at that time that we may not answer front and center on our website.
Once we are moving forward with families, we allow access to our private client groups on Facebook for breeding updates, puppy rasing, and more.
I try to have as much outlined as possible to read and get answers before reaching out. I'm usually extremely busy with our family, dogs, litter, and owners - so I want you to be supplied with as much as possible.
We want this to be the right investment for you.
We are one of the top few breeders currently extensively health testing ( OFA & DNA ) breeding dogs.
Health testing is NOT just a vet visit. For example, a regular vet cannot complete an OFA rating on hip or elbows; they must be supplied and sent into the orthopedic foundation for animals for the hips and elbows to receive a rating from their specialists. We DNA for genetic diseases and color traits. Our OFA panels are breed-specific to what needs to be achieved. Please review our dog's page, view their results, and search their names in the OFA system.
