I have been getting lots of emails the last couple of months for support to people who purchased dogs and puppies  outside our business.  We are not a locating service for puppies.  We spend a lot of time preparing for limited litters that will be something we are proud of for the future of the breeds.  If we don't have anything available, we are not going to spend time locating puppies for you.  We spend time with our owners and prospective owners.  Even though we would love to help, we do not have that kind of time. In addition, if you buy a puppy from other breeders, you buy their experience.  Please do not go to another breeder to buy your puppy  then come back to us for support on health, grooming, and training.  Our owners get that experience as should the person you bought your dog from.  If you can't go to them, then they aren't a quality breeder.  In 2020, we are focused on breeding a few litters as well as being secretary of a specialty club, and working full time.  Our time is limited and only our dogs are our focus.  I hope you understand.

SHOW PROSPECT AVAILABLE ON CO-OWN

What do we do as a breeder to make puppies the best they can be?  

  • We prove the structure of the breeding parents, make sure they are healthy through health testing, and make sure the temperament fits the standards of the breed.

  • We carefully select the breeding pair.  Sometimes, we acquire outside studs if that will make a better dog for the female.  

  • We monitor the breeding and make careful medical decisions based on needs.  

  • Once puppies are born we use a technique called, "Puppy Culture."  We know humans become better able to handle the world if you interact and touch 24-7.  Well, we do the same with puppies. It is called, ENS:  Early Neurological Stimulation.  If you are interested in knowing more, please click on the link.

  • We continue to touch and talk to the puppies as they grow and introduce them to the other dogs and cats as they mature.  

  • We monitor their development and aptitude test them at day 49 which helps select the best family for the dog and dog for the family.  

  • We evaluate puppies at 8 weeks.

Sometimes, litters are so outstanding after the Puppy Culture stimulation and training, that any puppy could go to about any home.  However, we still work at the "right fit" for our puppies.  

We do not sell based on coat color or eye color.

 

This kind of home has full ownership, but limited registration from AKC.  That means they must be spayed or neutered at 12-15 mos.   These puppies are more than companions.  They have a job and need to keep focused.  We do require buyers to work on dog obedience/training.  This is more than puppy kindergarten.  They need to know who is the person in charge and that they will have a structured life of security.  Many kennel clubs have wonderful training classes.  The great things with this is that you totally are bonded with the dog and response to your commands and not as reactive as it would be otherwise.  Obedience is such a great thing to have and within these breeds, paramount. 

 

If you want to do agility, you can, but only after the dog is 2 years old.  The bones need to fully fuse to be sure they do not have injury and damage joints.

These families bond and enjoy their new family member and keep us up to date on their wonderful new life with their new family.

Limited Registration & Pet/Performance Homes

$2000

These homes plan on showing the dog in conformation and will be have full AKC registration and on a co-ownership contract or in some cases full ownership.  These homes have additional requirements such as gaining championship as well as full testing requirements.  Males stay as co-owned.  But bitches will be moved to owner after championship has been acquired and fully tested.  We will stay as a mentor and be kept in the loop with breedings.  

These dogs are shaped for showing and spend a lot of time in conformation classes as well as socializing with other animals a lot.  These homes are more into "FOO FOO" grooming, and fantastic representation of the breed, and spending as much time snuggling their dog until the next show.   These dogs also could get the titles on the other end of the registered name as well. 

 

Currently, we are working on rally with several of our dogs, since they finished their championship.
