About Bohemian Poodles


We are a small, in-home breeder of mini poodles located in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada. All of our dogs are beloved family pets FIRST and have been carefully selected for their temperament, health, coats, and conformation to the poodle breed standard - with a colourful twist. They are beyond smart, athletic, and joyous. They most definitely break the mold of what many people think poodles are. Our dogs are hunters, retrievers, couch potatoes, adventurers, and clowns. They are loving and devoted to their families - irrespective of what their families look like.

Our dogs change lives. They are not just stunning to look at, but also loyal companions that are ready for whatever you require of them. They are not “snippy” or “barky” and they are WONDERFUL with kids of all ages. (Like all dogs, environment and training is important.) They are mostly small - around 15lbs - 18lbs, but not so small as to be too fragile for a household with young kids. 

They are devoted companions to an active older adult wanting to share their life (and bed) with a furry friend. They seem to understand when you talk to them, and they are sensitive to your mood. They adapt to be what you need them to be and add so much to the lives of their people.

Mending hearts and changing lives, one dog at a time.


All of our breeding dogs are, or will be, health tested. Some are cleared for breeding by parentage. Each dog is beautiful, has a lovely disposition and they are adored by their families.

As Bohemian Poodles grew, we made the decision to let some of our dogs live in guardian homes where they are loved and cherished by their own families. We can’t possibly give each dog the attention they deserve if they were to all live in our own home. Our guardian dogs are our pick of the litter or carefully selected from other breeding programs. Our females are only bred a few times and then retired to live out their lives as beloved pets.

If you are interested in becoming a guardian home for one of our dogs, please contact us for more information. This opportunity is only available to families in the Central Okanagan or Calgary region.


Buying from a responsible, conscientious breeder is not just the right thing to do, it also potentially saves you a lot of money, grief and heartache down the road, being it from health issues or behavioural difficulties.
