Over 20 Years of Experience and Education

Best of selection

Best of selection, nutrition and care of adults means healthy happy puppies

Adult breed dogs have been selected for family companion friendly calm temperament and health first & genetically tested to ensure you get a healthy long term companion. We have kennel link fenced over 2 acre to keep out the dangers to dogs and health of puppies – Coyotes, deer, wildlife etcx. My dog runs are 10 ft by 20 ft with covered patio area and housing (usually 2-3 dogs per run). We have larger play yard under supervision to get the exercise they need. Have Bach Science in Agriculture and multiple continuing education courses in genetics, whelping, neonatal care, puppy culture, stimulation and training.

Handling the Puppies

Puppies are born- raised in bio-secure area for their and moms health and safety. Until shots puppies do not have sufficient immunity to be in high traffic areas including in the house/yard where people track parvo back just from going to the store. In our case we are rural and coyotes (canine family and carry parvo) come up to the front entrance so must have different shoes on to walk into the dog/puppy area. Mothers get best of care & nutrition before, during pregnancy and nursing puppies to pass that nutrition to their puppies. Puppies get FFP (Fresh Frozen Plasma) for enhanced immunity. Puppies get early neurological stimualation and daily puppy culture.

We Have and bred champions

We do not focus on ‘show” as have found that what wins is not always what is the best of the breed, but who can afford to be there (both time & $$). Grooming expertise in hiding faults and “show grooming” is critical – great grooming does not mean its the best dog. And sadly who knows who- friends or competitors – can more determine what animal wins/loses than the best animal. there are not many shows in the PNW due too lack of breeders in this area. going to shows can also track back diseases . The standard that wins today can change by the whims of someone as to what wins tomorrow. Sometime those changes are not where I want to go so do not blindly follow. But do understand that basic showing does confirm breed type and conformation is correct. Many of our puppies bought by “show” breeders have won to Best in Show and Elite.

Our pride is having many “best Home Pet” awards from happy buyers
