Welcome to Gardenpath Standard Poodles and the online home of Renee Koch (pronounced Cook) and Family. Located in beautiful Kitchener, Ontario, Canada 100 km west of Toronto, Kitchener-Waterloo region is best known for Oktoberfest, maple syrup and excellent indoor & outdoor markets.  I also 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 CH Dixie von Aslan CDX (1971 – 1982).  Later my parents bred Rottweilers. I began riding at age 7 and competing with our horses at 14; horses have always been a large part of my life. I fell head over heels in love with Standard Poodles at a dog show when I was six, though it wasn’t until marriage I was able to obtain the breed I so long desired. Standard Poodles are our only breed of dog since 1988.  I have competed in Conformation, Tracking, Obedience, Rally, Agility and developed an interest in hunting with Poodles.  My Poodles have earned Championships in Conformation, Obedience and Tracking. Chase is the 1st TCH (Tracking Champion) Standard Poodle in Canada.  My experiences with working breeds and horses fostered my love and appreciation for Standard Poodles. We own Poodles foremost because we enjoy their athletic beauty, humour, affection and can’t imagine life without them.

A member in good standing of The Canadian Kennel Club, The Poodle Club of Canada and Scentral Ontario Trackers, we are dedicated to giving our Poodles the best love and care.  Our Poodles live in our home as members of our family for their entire lives.
