We are in the process of changing to EmbarkDNA, it is a work in progress. All dogs have prior health testing or are cleared through parentage.

Dams & Sires

Below are the pictures, descriptions, and links to our sires' and dams' health testing results. We find that having less dogs works better for us, so some of the sires we use in our breeding program do not belong to us and live with their owners. All poodles used in our breeding program are required to have health testing done, or be clear by parentage.

Optimal Selection will not be using MyDogDNA for their testing services anymore, and has gone back to Wisdom Panel. We no longer have access to their website or dashboard, but can provide PDF documentation. We apologize for the inconvenience and would like to thank everyone for their patience with us getting the results posted again.  You can see retired dogs here.

About DNA Health Testing

About DNA Testing

My Standard Poodles are purebred not because they have "papers," they are purebred because they have only ever had purebred standard poodles in their lineage. "Papers" can NOT guarantee the puppy you are buying is purebred, but a DNA test can. A good breeder should be able to show you genetic testing proving that their dams and sires are purebred.

All of our poodles have had their DNA tested for a variety of different genetic diseases and have also had their DNA tested for the coat color, and modifying coat color.

Click on the red cross icon in each dog's profile so see the health testing results.

  • Degenerative Myelopathy, (DM)

  • von Willebrand's Disease (VWD)

  • Neonatal Encephalopathy with Seizures, (NEWS)

  • Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)

  • GM2 Gangliosidosis

  • Osteochondrodysplasia

  • Macrothrombocytopenia

  • DCM*

¹ At risk means a dog does carries two copies of a variant. None of our poodles are "At Risk" or "Affected." Carrier means a dog carries only one copy of a variant, and is not at risk for developing the illness.

* We test for genetic DCM (Dilated Cardiomyopathy). The poodle breed is not prone to genetic DCM, but is not immune to nutritional DCM. Nutritional DCM is caused by grain-free food, which is why we do not recommend feeding it. Please be advised that our Health Guarantee does NOT cover nutritional DCM.
