Here at Ghibli Poodles, our Poodles are first and foremost members of our family. We also enjoy proving our dogs in the conformation and performance ring! Our poodles participate in CGC, Trick Dog, Dog Parkour, Rally, Obedience, Conformation, Barnhunt, Nosework, and Therapy Dog!
As of December 2023, Tasha has earned over 125 titles in a variety of dog sports with the Poodles in the Ghibli breeding program and a total of 170 over her lifetime with all the dogs she's loved, handled, and owned throughout the years!
We are a small in-home breeder of Standard Poodles that produce one to three thoughtfully planned litters a year.
I am a certified dog trainer with over two decades of experience training dogs as hobby, sport, and profession. My goals for my breeding program are improving the health and longevity of the breed and producing well-socialized puppies with excellent temperaments for families to enjoy. We aim to produce outstanding, versatile, and healthy standard poodles to represent the breed we love. We raise our puppies with the knowledge gained from Puppy Culture and Avidog Breeder College programs to ensure well-socialized puppies.

Ponyo Treasure from the Jar CGC TKN NTD
Ponyo is our adopted small Poodle. She came home at 3 years old after being retired from another breeding program before my dream of breeding was even a thought. She enjoyed playing Jr Show dog occasionally with my children for 6 years. Ponyo was retired from the breeding kennel we adopted her from because she didn't like being a mother and we found that to be true in our home, as she did not appreciate (or tolerate) puppies, especially the older she grew. At 9 years old, Ponyo found a wonderful retirement where she doesn't have to put up with puppy nonsense and can enjoy the company of two other older Small standard Poodles. We never had any intention of rehoming Ponyo but it became clear it was what was best for her and we did the very hard thing of letting her go. We continue to receive updates on Ponyo enjoying retirement and know we made the right decision for her even though we still miss her greatly.
Yoshi Carpet BN CGC - April 21, 2010 - May 4, 2017
Yoshi was a Poodle mix and my husband's first dog. He named him, not me. He thought that Poodles felt like Carpet, and he lays Carpet for a living, so .... I got stuck trialing with a dog with a registered name as Yoshi Carpet. Yoshi unfortunately suffered from a lot of health ailments and earned an early retirement from performance sports, then passed away tragically young from an autoimmune disease.

Misha was my bl/white English Springer Spaniel and the best little performance partner a teenage girl could ever ask for. She took me to multiple UKC Premier invitationals and Ohio State Fairs as a junior.

Jan 2, 1998 - Feb 27, 2013
Pepper , a black American Cocker Spaniel, was my very first dog, my heart dog, and my very best friend growing up.
Pepper excelled at Agility and also was my Therapy dog for many, many years. She loved visiting nursing homes and showing off her tricks.
Fifteen years was not enough with this dog but she still visits me in my dreams. <3
