We recommend the book, The Art of Raising a Puppy by the Monks of New Skete. You can find it on Amazon for around $15 (new).
Poodle Clipping and Grooming: The International Reference by Shirlee Kalstone is the most comprehensive grooming book for the breed. The digital version is $3 and the hard cover printed copy is approximately $20.
Puppy Culture (PC) provides structure for early puppy development (first 12 weeks). Want to learn more about Puppy Culture? Click the Puppy Culture image below, search the web or contact us.
