Alusio Standard Poodles

About Us


Welcome to our website, We are Janice & Kelvyn Harwood and we live in the village of Churchill in Somerset, U.K.

Our journey with standard poodles began in 2000, when after years of owning rough collies, and due to my ill health, we decided to get a standard poodle as the coat would be easier to cope with, in between clips done by someone else, famous last words!!

So we contacted Philip Langdon of Atastar poodles and purchased Charlie a dog puppy and we were hooked on poodles!

Three years later and due to a combination of medication and diet, my health had dramatically improved, our thoughts turned to showing, as Philip had been grooming Charlie for us, we asked him about buying a bitch puppy and so Tara came into our lives and our journey into the world of show poodles began!

So here we are 2015 and we are quickly being taken over by standard poodles, they are first and foremost much loved pets, who spend a small amount of time being a show dog!

We are both honoured to serve on the committee of the South Western Poodle Club and are members of The Standard Poodle Club

Before breeding from our dogs we make sure they are hip scored and eye tested  for hereditary cataracts and DNA tested clear for vWD and NE, their health & wellbeing is our first priority

A big thank you must go to Philip Langdon and Darren Jennings as without all their help and advice Alusio Poodles would not have been possible.
