We highly recommend Berkshire Poodles to anyone looking for a poodle. They care deeply about breeding healthy, well dispositioned poodles and improving their line.
I contacted Lee one day about an eye issue Stella was having. It turned out to be a temporary issue, but Lee literally changed who he was going to breed her mom to that day, in case it turned out to be genetic.
A big plus is how well socialized the puppies are when you get them. Because she was raised in their home, Stella was used to small children, something I can’t provide here, and all sorts of household noises. They are loved and nurtured form the beginning. What a great way to start!

We feel very lucky to have found Berkshire Poodles. As first time dog/puppy owners, we had a LOT of questions. Lee and Kaitlyn have been so helpful and patient as we navigate puppy parenthood. They’re passionate about poodles and truly care about the dogs they breed. (They’re taking our little Leila when we go on vacation this summer!) We have the most adorable, hilarious puppy, and if/when we get another it will definitely be a Berkshire poodle.

We brought Socket (Porche x Henry) home on 3/25/19 at eight weeks of age and couldn’t have asked for a better puppy or experience. Kate and Lee do a great job socializing their puppies, getting them off on the best foot (or paws, I should say) possible and answering questions along the way!
Our vet, who has spent considerable time around Standard Poodles, commented on Socket’s sweet temperament at his first visit and in two short weeks with us he’s already asking to go out to potty and is well on his way to mastering basic commands.
I highly recommend Berkshire Poodles to anyone who is interested in adding a Standard Poodle to their family. You will be hard-pressed to find a better/more committed breeder!

We picked up Winston (born 1/4/18 to Hank and Marlo) on 3/11. Winston demonstrates eagerness to please and loves to spend time training. Lee (and family) do such a great job socializing their pups that Winston acclimated to our household of 3 cats and a 6 year old labradoodle within hours! He is a very loving little guy and clearly had a great start at Berkshire Poodles!
I picked up my Polly on 1/13. Could not have made a better choice in breed of dog and breeder. After only a little over 2 weeks she has blossomed into such a sweetheart. She not only knows her name and comes when called but understands what “no” means(at least 90% of the time!). She has continued to amaze me with her intelligence. She was going in and out of crate after 3 days and now I have her actually jumping up at string of bells on door and barking to go out. She has not had an accident in the house in over 5 days. Thank you Lee, for such a wonderful companion.
We picked our poodle up yesterday and drove her 4 1/2 hours home and she was perfect! She walked on the leash pretty much like she had been doing it all her life! Got her home and she adapted so quickly! What an awesome pup! Lee and his wife were so kind and accommodating we couldn't ask for a better transition! Would recommend this breeder to anyone looking for a great poodle! They obviously love their dogs!
We really had a good experience with Lee and his father in regards to picking out our puppy and having the information and local references we needed about her health and care. She was an adorable puppy and has turned into a well behaved loving member of the family. She's a beautiful dog too and gets compliments everywhere we go.
Our Pally, now nine months old, is a delight in every way. She is smart, curious and very affectionate. She is never aggressive with anyone, human or canine; she just loves to be companionable and learn new things about the world. She has one weakness: socks. But if you keep your sock drawer closed, she is a practically perfect poodle.
