Farleys D Standard - Standard Poodles, Papillons, Havanese


    About Us   


2009 marks the 20th year anniversary for Farleys D Standard

Welcome to our website where we will convey to you our philosophies and accomplishments.

Kelly, our first Apricot Standard Poodle, joined our family in 1989. She was a beautiful apricot poodle, and our foundation bitch, born in the Catskill Mountains of New York. Kelly looked so pretty sitting in the kitchen of Ilsa Konig that we picked her to be part of our family. 

She will always be special in our hearts.

Farleys D Standard has been breeding and raising exceptional AKC registered Apricot and Red Standard Poodles since 1990. 

We have bred, raised and shown some of the best and finest Apricot and Red Standard Poodle Champions in the United States including:

The First AKC Red Standard Bitch Champion, Chelsea  


The Second AKC Red Standard Dog Champion, Cello


In addition to having bred and shown these Red Standard Poodle Champions, we have the honor to have finished in the United States: 

The First AKC Apricot Standard Bitch Champion, Ivy  


The First AKC Apricot Standard Dog Champion, Tru  

out of the  Bred By Exhibitor  class. 

We are recognized and sought after throughout the world due to breeding consistently well-tempered, happy, healthy and intelligent dogs not to mention for our accomplishments with our Apricot and Red Standard Poodles.  

We are always eager to help mentor, to lend a helping hand, or to support anyone who wants to learn and promote Apricot and Red Standard Poodles.

We are members of the Apricot Red Poodle Club where Terry is currently the Treasurer, and John is Corresponding Secretary. We are also members of the Greater Pittsburgh Poodle club where we have served as officers for different positions throughout the past years and Terry is currently the Treasurer. We were members of the Poodle Club of Long Island when we lived in New York City.

In addition, we have raised and shown Papillons since 1998. After finishing a number of them, ours and for clients, we started breeding Papillons in 2002. We have bred a few litters so far and we are looking forward to establishing a Farleys D line of Papillons. We are members of the Three Rivers Papillon Club of PA where Terry is the founding President and John has served as Treasurer and Vice-President. John is member of the Papillon Club of America.

In the year 2000, John fell in love at first sight with a Havanese which we named Lola. She was finished in no time and became our first Havanese. Since then we have acquired two additional Havanese, Eva and Tango, this time from wonderful people and honored friends Pat and Sue of Glen Iris Havanese in Williamsport, PA. During the first 5 years of being in the breed, we have shown and finished many dogs and have been learning about the Havanese. Our first litter was bred in 2005 and are pleased to say we championed two puppies from the Bred-By class from that litter and are looking forward to champion two more from our second litter.

At the 2009 Havanese Club of America Banquet Dinner our girl Eva, Ch Farleys D Evita of Glen Iris, was awarded an ROM, Register of Merit, for having produced 5 or more champions. She also received the award of Brood Bitch of the Year for having produced 3 or more champions in 2008.

At the 2009 Havanese National Specialty in Chicago, our boy Marco aka Ch Farleys D Don Juan de Marco, received an AOM, Award of Merit, from judge Mr. Edd Bivin. 

We are members of the Steel Valley Havanese Association where Terry is the founding President and John has served as a Board member and is the current Secretary.  Terry and John are also members of the Havanese Club of America.

We are members of Fort Steuben Kennel Association All-breed club.

Terry has judged many AKC recognized A and B matches and presented seminars for judges and aspiring judges on topics such as Poodle genetics and Poodle breed type. He is hoping to pursue his judging license in the future.

Our goal

We are conscientious and responsible breeders that breed for the purpose of producing dogs to exhibit for ourselves, occasionally raising one or two litters per year in Apricot, Red and Black Standard Poodles, Papillons and/or Havanese. Our goal from the start was, and still remains, to raise healthy, happy, well-tempered, affectionate puppies that are also a good representation of the breed. 

By carefully selecting bloodlines and characteristics that complement one another together with extensive pedigree research, networking and health testing we feel our puppies to be an exemplary representation of type, structure and temperament the Standard Poodle, Papillon and Havanese breeds require. 

Our puppies are well-suited for conformation, all-around performance, and to be beloved pets. 

We reside in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
