Once we have puppies born ONLY the people that have paid deposits are allowed to visit. Those that have puppies reserved with us appreciate this policy. The health of our puppies is our main concern and we ask anyone that would like to visit us to not go to another kennel prior to our kennel as puppies are very susceptible to illnesses & we wouldn't want our puppies to be exposed to any diseases or viruses that could be brought from another kennel. Protecting our puppies is our top priority. Visits are by appointment only.

A ~ Yes we take all our puppies to a licensed vet to remove the dew claws between 3 and 5 days of age.

Everything is handled by her personally!! It is a pleasure for us to spend time with our dogs & puppies, We enjoy being with them and taking care of them. All of our dogs are allowed lots of play time with us inside our fence each day! All of our puppies are handled by Brooke and Carson multiple times a day! It is our goal for each of our dogs to feel like they are the only dog here, so we give them lots of love and one on one time!
Q- What kind of facility do you have for your dogs?
A- Our dogs are our family pets first. They have been raised around our two boys Carson and Greyson from the day they both came home from the hospital. We have a 850+ ft chain link fence that all of our dogs get to run in everyday. Every morning everybody gets out and come night time we have individual kennels for everyone. For those who are not crate trained are kenneled in a covered 10X10X6 chain link kennel that has concrete flooring and a huge 6x6 dog house. We keep an extremely clean kennel. If our dogs are not let out during the day because of weather our kennels are sprayed out twice a day to keep everything clean and healthy. Our puppies are raised in our custom built dog building.
