The Story of Dazzler Poodles
The Standards
The very first poodle I owned was purchased in 1968. Sheba was a 9 month old Standard Poodle.  She acquired an AKC Utility Dog Title which was the highest title available in AKC obedience at that time.  Sheba, Playboy's Bunny Qtip UD, was the first of many generations of Standard Poodle Obedience Titled females bred to AKC champions.  Temperament and physical quality were given equal consideration.
From the beginning my interest was to produce one quality female from each litter that I could move on with.  I bred to the best male Champion that I could find which many times involved long drives or shipping by air to that dog.  Normal priorities took a back seat and  financial obligations were pushed aside in the effort to breed to the best and produce the best.  Since the plan was to breed the best female to the best male in the country there was no reason to breed that female again.  That is the reason why only one Dazzler Standard Poodle female has ever produced more than one litter of puppies. 
Sheba competed very successfully in AKC obedience trials and garnered some very high scores and a wall full of trophies.  She was the start of it all in so many ways.  Her temperament was superior and she always put on a show in the ring that was nothing short of incredible.  She won many versatility classes and brace classes at obedience trials and specialties.  Her partner for the brace was her daughter,  Cat-Ba's Major Constella CDX. (Connie). Connie was the dam of Dazzler Dinamite (Chrissy)  Chrissy was the youngest standard poodle to get a C.D. titile at 6 mon and one week of age.  She finished her C.D.X. at a year of age. This line of obedience titled poodles was unique but after a number of generations the Dazzler Poodle prefix expanded to an interest in the breed ring.  Although some of the poodles were shown in the breed ring with one notable Champion Dazzler Apocalypse owned by Vicki Smith-Grandin the line ended abruptly with the loss of one female that died prematuely before she was bred.
At that point a search for a quality Standard Poodle female began and Dazzler Poodles began anew with different pedigrees and  better quality poodles than ever before.

Sheba was the first standard poodle Catherine Crawmer owned and was the start of Dazzler Poodles.  Sheba  finished her AKC Utility Dog title and went on to do some major winning in AKC open, utility  and versatility classes.  Sheba also won many brace classes in  AKC obedience with her daughter Dazzler Major Constella CDX.  Pat Mayer  is shown here accepting the 1st place ribbon for the Utility class at the Hudson Valley Poodle Specialty while Sheba intently watches her owner,  Catherine Crawmer,  who was handling a poodle in another ring
