|We live outside
Ribe in the southern part of Denmark and our home and
life is filled with poodles. For many years we
have been farmers, but now we have retired and spend all our time with our poodles.
We had our first registred
poodle in 1983 and our first litter in 1986. From this
very first litter was Warming Black Alberta - the most
successfull miniature female ever in Denmark -
international multi-BIS-winner and BIS-winner at
international shows in Denmark (with more than 3000
entries). Alberta and her litter sister are the
foundation bitches of the kennel.
In 1990 our fantastic brown male
Warming Brown Junior was born - and what a personality.
He is among the two most winning males ever in Denmark
and he is the foundation of all our browns.
We search to keep the special Warming type and
quality and we are very proud when judges say (and
show), that they can pick out Warming miniatures at
shows no matter where and no matter who handles them.
In 2002 Kennel Warming won Studdog Dog of the Year (all breeds) in the Danish
Kennel Club, and received the Danish Kennel Club mark of
honour for many years of excellent breeding - the only
Danish poodle breeder ever to have achieved this.
Our breeding principles:
Most important to us throughout the years has
typey, healthy, well tempered and beautiful puppies. We have always been very
selective in our
search for studdogs, which means that we have never gone for
champion-titles or trendy prefixes
more for health and pedigrees that have proved their quality
generations. Our lines are pure black and brown - we believe in keeping the
colours clean. We specialise in miniatures as we
do not believe that you can do serious breeding and
improve the breed if you spread out in sizes and colours.
Breeders have a huge
responsability in keeping the breed sound and healthy
and in improvement of the breed generation by generation, and we owe
it to the buyers of the puppies that we are completely
honest and do not hide anything. That is why we never
keep quiet about any faults, the dogs may have - if we
discover faults in one of our dogs we stop using it in
breeding and we inform the owners of the offspring. We
do not pretend, that we only have Normal/clear dogs, so
we also publish our prcd-PRA carriers.
All our dogs used in the breeding are prcd-PRA tested
and have been for years. They are also eye examined
every second year. This is very important to us, since there is
more than one form of PRA and since there are other
eye-deseases than prcd-PRA. All our dogs are
pat.lux.tested and free.
Of course we do not breed on faults such as epilepsy, lack of
teeth or bad temperament.
All our dogs live with us in the
house and the puppies are there too to make sure that
they are used to both humans and other dogs. It is a
plesure to see 5-6 weeks puppies playing in the garden
with the older dogs - that really gives them
At shows we do not change the colour of our dogs to make
them look more brown or black than they really are, and
we do not ad hair in the top knot to make it look as if
the dogs have more coat than they actually have.
We do not drug the dogs in order to hide a bad
temperament and to make the dogs move better. A bad
tempered poodle should not be shown at all - and should
not be used in the breeding.
In other words: What you see is what you get when you
meet a Warming poodle!
