Protocols and Policies:   

We take great pride in our pups and care in raising them! In the Fall of 2019 our kennel was inspected by AKC, They look at many aspects of how the dogs are kept and cared for, as well as our record keeping. Please feel free to check out our AKC Kennel Evaluation.  Each breeding we do is carefully selected by looking at dozens of attributes of both sire and dam. We maintain the German standard as written for both physical attributes and character, and use only top examples of the breed for our program. Sales contract with health replacement guarantee and informative industry news to owners of our dogs is standard. There is no substitute for experience. This has been our life for over 25 years and 87 litters and our knowledge and training experience is evident in every litter we breed. Our pups are usually under contract early so reservations are recommended. We do these special things to insure our pups get off to the best start:

  • Researched early neurological stimulation program (3-16 days).
  • Specific vaccine protocol that protects the immune system.
  • Formal 3rd party Puppy Testing at 7 weeks.
  • Early socialization, exploration, crate training, potty training, problem solving and enrichment
  • Imprinting for various skills starting at 4 weeks such as scent work and agility.
  • Full health foundation includes 1st shots and worming.
  • Every dog in the pedigree has certified hips and elbows and most often a temperament certificate or working title.
  • Extensive Puppy Packet with background pedigrees, informative articles, training information, handouts.

Aspects of health, temperament and conformation are a top consideration. A dog’s ‘Breed Survey” (the KKL after the dog’s name), outlines how closely a dog meets the various elements of the standard. Occasionally we will use a dog who meets the standard but has not yet completed all their titles or received their breed survey.

Please read this article, The Elements of Temperament, by Joy Tiz before considering a puppy from our kennel, and to more fully understand what to look for in the parents of any puppy being considered as your companion.

We do require that prospective buyers complete a written questionnaire and give references. Reservations are accepted with a signed contract and deposit.  What ever puppy you choose, please use a high quality dog food!
After selection of your breeder, it’s the most important decision you will make…
