alyssa&pj Since 1971 Cynthia Huff has been breeding quality white and black standard poodles, with her mother until her death in 1997 and now with her daughter, son and husband. Safari Standard Poodles, located in Central Illinois just two hours from Chicago, now tally over 135 champions in the U.S., Canada, Korea, Mexico, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, and Greece. In August of 1987, American/Canadian Ch. Safari's Evensong became the top-producing Standard dam in the history of American poodles, breaking a twenty-seven year reign. Our poodles have excelled as therapy dogs, duck dogs, and obedience dogs.

Safari Standards are known as healthy, friendly companions and showdogs. We are proud members of the Poodle Club of America, and AKC Breeders of Merit. Our breeding philosophy gives equal weight to temperament, health, and conformation. Our daughter and son help whelp our puppies, handle them in the whelping box, and play with them in the backyard. Our house was built for our dogs.

Go to the source! Safari Standard Poodles are behind many of the top-quality standard poodles bred today in the U.S. and abroad. Our contracts (a copy is accessible in the left-hand index) features a five-year genetic health guarantee. We have forty years experience in matching our puppies' personalities with families and individuals. Since we show our own dogs, we know our dogs throughout their lives and through all their experiences.

We breed one or two litters of puppies a year. We also offer stud service to select show-quality bitches.
