Welcome to Clarion Poodles! Clarion is owned by Ann & Katherine Kennedy. We are small miniature & toy poodle breeders committed to breeding and showing poodles that are both athletic and beautiful. We are located in California, one hour south of Sacramento, nestled into an area surrounded by small family-owned wineries. We have been showing and breeding Poodles since 1963, and have bred over 160 American Champions. We are ranked as the #2 Leading Miniature Poodle Breeder in the history of the breed **. We believe that Poodles should be bred to produce individuals that have correct conformation, athleticism, beauty, intelligence and an enthusiastic love of life.

Thank you for sharing your time with us. We appreciate your interest.

Clarion Poodles is thrilled to announce that we were asked by the AKC to participate in a new pilot program called "Breeder of Merit". We believe that this new program has a tremendous future. Its primary goal is to support the role that the dedicated exhibitor-breeder plays in the world of purebred dogs and to give tribute to the commitment that these breeders have given to the breed and AKC. We are honored to have been selected to participate in this pilot program and hope our efforts contribute to its success.
