Welcome to Gardenpath Standard Poodles and the online home of Renee Koch (pronounced Cook) and Family. Located in beautiful Kitchener, Ontario, Canada this region is best known for Oktoberfest, maple syrup and excellent markets.  I own and operate The Quilted Hound where I sew luxurious Satin Coat Protecting Collars, waterproof Leg Protectors and other items.

I was fortunate to grow up in a competitive dog family. My first fond family dog memories were of our German Shepherd Dixie and later my parents Rottweilers.  I began riding at age 7 and competing with our horses at 14. I fell in love with Standard Poodles at a dog show when I was six, though it wasn’t until marriage I obtained the breed I desired. Standard Poodles are our only breed since 1988.  My Poodles have earned Championships in Conformation, Tracking and Obedience and titled in agility. Chase was the 1st Tracking Champion (TCH) Standard Poodle in Canada.  My experiences with working breeds and horses fostered my love for Standard Poodles. We enjoy our Poodles and can’t imagine life without them.  I am a member in good standing of The Canadian Kennel Club, The Poodle Club of Canada and Scentral Ontario Trackers.

Quality puppies available on occasion
