Carrie was absolutely amazing. We got our first poodle December of 2022 and Carrie took the time and kept our pup longer because we were just waiting for our house to be ready. Kya is the most beautiful girl, super calm and the sweetest pup. I would 100% recommend Mainely standards!

We had such an amazing experience working with Carrie at Mainely Standards! She was able to match us with the perfect puppy – exactly the personality and temperament that we asked for in a dog! We have been so pleased with her breeding and disposition! Carrie communicated often with updates, answers to our questions, pictures, and videos. It made it easy for us to help our kids anticipate and prepare for the arrival of our puppy. I would recommend this breeder to anyone looking for a quality poodle and a great experience with a breeder! The experience is like buying a quality dog from a friend who loves the litter, rather than from a breeder just trying to turn out dogs. It was a lovely experience! Well worth the distance for us to get a dog from Carrie! Thank you!

What great puppies. Carrie and her family obviously love what they do. They spend a lot of time producing, acclimating and training puppies for their new homes. She got to know us and then helped us pick what would be the most perfect puppy for our household. She encouraged us to visit with the puppy multiple times before taking her home (we lived close enough for this to be an option) and has been great at answering any questions along the way. Even after our puppy has been living with us, carrie has been there to assist with questions or guide us. Our puppy Sadie, has now been with us for a week and she is just the sweetest pup and we are so glad Carrie helped match us to her and vice versa.

Carrie is a wonderful breeder and we couldn’t be happier with our girl! Carrie always took the time to answer our questions and was very responsive. She also inveited us to visit her poodle pack and the puppies as frequelty as we liked. Her transparancy and ability to raise poodles with such incredible temperments is unmatched.

Carrie was fabulous to work with! She gave the puppies lots of attention and care to get them ready for their homes. And, I appreciated the puppy cam she set up; my fifth grade students and I checked in each day to see how they were progressing. Such fun! We absolutely love our sweet poodle, Josie! She’s spunky, smart, and seems to have a funny sense of humor. Such a ball of love too!

Carrie was great to work with and her poodles are all amazing. We got Jasper 3 weeks ago and he has been an absolute joy. I took him on my kayak and he was great. He’s very smart, curious and adventurous. We are hoping to start puppy school soon with the goal of becoming a Therapy Dog later. His temperament is perfect. Such a love.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness My experience with Mainely Standards was outstanding! We’re really appreciative of the communication and Mainely’s flexibility as we flew in from Puerto Rico to pick up our beautiful red Poodle. We asked questions about temperament and growth during the process, and Mainely has always been very responsive and transparent. We’re in love with our new addition to our family, and would recommend Mainely Standards any time.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness This was my first time buying a registered AKC dog and I can say that my experience was phenomenal with them. I received a lot of wonderful pictures and videos! I even got to FaceTime and see the puppies too. She answered a lot of questions that I asked, very helpful! My Prince is finally here and I love him so much! He was taken well care of and will continue being well taken care of by me :). I would definitely recommend to anyone that I know who is looking to buy a red standard poodle.
