Welcome to Paradise Poodles & Cavaliers, located in the quaint community of Olivehurst, CA just thirty minutes North of Sacramento. Paradise Poodles has been providing exceptionally beautiful, top quality Standard Poodles for fifteen years. Paradise Poodles is owned and operated by myself, Joan Gatrell. I was previously located in Paradise, CA where for fifteen years I operated Muddy Paws Pet Grooming and Paradise Poodles. Tragically, I lost my home, businesses, and entire livelihood in the 2018 Paradise Camp Fire. It's taken four years of rebuilding my life and business’s. I am very fortunate to again be thriving after recreating my life and business’s and as such, now offer the well-tempered and affectionate King Charles Cavalier's to my breeding line.
As far back as I can remember I have loved animals. As a child a was always bringing home a stray dog or cat and remember having a crew of a few or more furry family friends throughout my childhood. As I grew older, I added humans to my family and now have three wonderful adult children. Additionally, they have added my two amazing grandchildren whom I adore and love spending time with!
I spent the majority of my work life which began at eighteen years old as a pet groomer. My very first pet cut was a show trim on a miniature poodle named, Charlie. From then on, I was hooked! I bought my first poodle when I was twenty-five, and have enjoyed raising and breeding these wonderful animals since. I always look forward to offering them to others who already know or will soon find out what wonderful family additions they will become!
