    I am looking for a Toy or Miniture Poddle puppy for my family: myself ( retired), my husband, and my playful Havananese. I hike and camp so need a confident, strong little dog. I plan to come to Albuquerque in May for your event

      It is a great place to see a lot of lovely dogs and get an idea of who has the type of dog that you’re interested in. If you hike and camp a lot, a miniature might be a better fit for your family. Toys are sturdy little dogs, but they are little.
      We have two members who would be happy to talk to you more, and help you find a good puppy. Please contact or

      Our shows, which are Poodle Specialty Shows, are on Friday. However, the other clubs are having shows all weekend and there will be classes for poodles. Our show is nothing but poodles, but the rest of the weekend are shows that have all breeds competing.

      Thank you for your interest!

    We will be traveling 250 miles from Carlsbad, so it would be helpful if we knew more specifically what to expect. You mention that the other clubs will be having shows all weekend, which will include classes for poodles. Does that include Saturday? I ask because your website states there will be four more days of dog shows from the 12th through the 15th. The 12th is a Sunday. Is there another website for the whole event? Will there be any other poodle club events Saturday?

      I’m sorry–the dates were in error and I’ve corrected them. Here is the information for the combined shows:
      Please note–as of the date of this post, the schedule isn’t set since it depends on the shows’ entries. The information on this link for the New Mexico Combined Specialties, The Rio Grande Kennel Club, and the Coronado Kennel Club events will be updated when entries and information from the clubs is available. Our club is a part of the Combined Specialties, and because of that the updates are dependent on the other clubs submitting their information since none of the show information is updated until it’s all in.
