Story Book Poodles - Health-tested, AKC Registered Poodles


After growing up with standard poodles on a farm in Western Canada, Phillipa Gill returned to the pure bred dog world in 2007 by adopting retired show dogs. Since 2013 she has been participating in conformation dog shows and other dog sports (when time permits). She currently shows and occasionally breeds standard poodles using the prefix "Story Book" (AKC temp. reg'd).

2023 was a big year for Robert!

Robert was shown by his best friend and handler Rebecca Arch in 2023 finishing the year as America's #4 Standard Poodle (all breed points). Along the way he won multiple all breed best in shows and multiple specialty best in show awards. We are beyond proud of what this dog has done!
