 40 years of experience home raising healthy and bouncy puppies from happy free range parents. We are a small kennel and ALL of our dogs know their names and are allowed to play outside every day, weather permitting. Our puppies are super clean, socialized,  vet checked, happy and healthy.

We are a small family operation with 40 years of breeding, showing and training experience. We are devoted to raising the healthiest and best socialized pet puppy possible. Our adult dogs have free range in our yards and home everyday.  None of our dogs spends their lives just living in a kennel. They get to socialize, run, play, fetch and our herding dogs even work. Everyone is groomed and vetted on a regular schedule.

Keep them healthy

A top quality diet will help with potty training and ensure a long, healthy  life. Buy the best dog food you can reasonably afford and make sure to do regular veterinary visits.

Never punish your puppy harshly for potty issues or chewing stuff the first several weeks you have them. Redirect the behavior. Save the scolding for when they are older. Patience pays off !
