Meet Our Founder


Hi, I’m Marko and I’ve been a fan of poodles for as long as I can remember. Growing up with a poodle by my side taught me more about life and love than I ever could have imagined. Today, I share my life with the niece of my first poodle and am committed to passing on that bond to the next generation.
