How to tell the Good
from the Bad
and the Ugly...
My puppies are
individual kennel trained...
this avoids puppy separation anxiety.
Wouldn't you be fearful the first time
you were separated from everything you know.
I do NOT take the puppy directly from its mother
and give the puppy directly to you.
I gradually lengthen the separation time from the mother...
then from the litter mates.
The puppy does not get upset.
They will keep eating and not cry ALL through the night.
The process of individual kenneling training
lets me know exactly when the puppy is weaned and ready to go home with you. Their stools are firm and the puppy is not fussing in the kennel.
I socialize the puppies to play with their toys,
not chew on my shoe laces and to keep out
of the NO DOG ZONES like behind the couch.
They have been exposed to many sights, sounds
(they listen to talk podcasts)
I enjoy playing with the puppies and have taken the time to
educate and teach both you and the puppy.
The socialization process is started at birth.
At 6 weeks of age, the puppies are brought
into my home and go back to their
mother to nurse several times a day.
Once they are weaned they are raised in
my home. They can go outside when the
weather is nice.
I can teach the grate method of kenneling...
not just the crate (traditional kenneling).
With the grate method
They learn to go BOTH outside
and use the back up plan.
it doesn't matter if it's
COLD, RAINING or you are just SHORT ON TIME.
Many methods work
but mine is cleaner,
healthier and much easier.
You decide which methods works best for you.
I use a larger kennel with a grate-
no puppy pads...
no repeat bathing...
no sitting in water because they have tipped over the water dish etc.
This method is great for people who can't run to the door every time the puppy needs to go out. My customers who live in condos/apartments love that they do not need to run down the hall/stairs/elevator every time the dog needs to relieve itself.
It's wonderful for who ever may be dog sitting.
They're being taught to come to a whistle.
They know the word NO.
I will show you the calm down technique
Watch the training videos!
The tax is included in the price-
NO surprises with extra costs.
No limited registration and no extra costs
if you care to show or breed your puppy.
If born with dew claws they are removed
they're only good for snagging clothing
hunting dogs need their dew claws to hold their prey.
Everyone who buys a puppy from me
gets a copy of professional pointers by email...
126 pages eBook.
Doggone sound advise about training
and caring for the family pooch.
The eBook is packed full of indispensable tips to help
avoid and resolve common behavioral problems. It is designed to building a mutually rewarding relationship between canine and owner.
I am available for questions
even after the puppy is sold
I show you how toidentify and avoid
worms, fleas and other problems.
The puppies are raised by me,
trained by me
and sold by me.
NOT an employee or friend of the family
who really knows nothing about
raising, training and teaching you
how to have a well-behaved puppy.
I own both PARENTs
To avoid health issues and to keep our insurance costs low
we are no longer showing the parents
however, we can email photos;)
Once a deposit is placed on a puppy and it is born,
I email weekly updates and post videos on the website
Please don't expect other breeders to provide you
with all the additional information and extra effort of
removing dew claws
teaching you the basics & so much more...
their bottom line is to provide you with a puppy and make a profit.
If the place you are considering to buy a puppy from is unclean or the puppies/adults are not groomed or cared for...
this should be a clear sign...
this is not where you want to purchase your puppy from
DO NOT PURCHASE FROM THEM
DO NOT REWARD THE BEHAVIOR
OR YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM WHY THEY CONTINUE
If the seller ONLY will meet you in a parking lot ...this should be a clear warning sign...a bright red flag.
Or they tell you they're selling the puppies for a relative/friend.
If they don't have the records of shots or
other vet history available for you to take.
If they do not have the registration paperwork
ready for you when you take the puppy.
If they do not have the registration NUMBER of the parents.
This NUMBER proves they are purebred.
If the puppy is sprayed with perfume
to cover bad smells - think again why perfume was used instead of giving the puppy a bath.
If the dog was used for breeding purposes
they usually will want to mark your furniture, carpet, etc -
it can be corrected but you will need to know how to break the habit.
I take the time to educate you and give my training methods in written format, by email, a 126 page care guide written by me.
I do not just take the money and say... see ya!!!
I encourage you to email if a problem arises...a habit it much harder to break than getting it right the first time;)
I want you and the puppy to have an enjoyable life together.
I know exactly who the father is...
no sneaky neighbor's dog allowed.
This is just one of the reasons we have a gated property, motion detectors, cameras etc.
To insure that parasites do not come from me...
my puppies are dewormed once every 2 weeks
(cycle of adult and egg laying is 3 weeks) if necessary
NO fleas, ticks or mites will be dipped if necessary.
The mother is fed a high-grade diet so not deficient and produces healthy pups which means she can nurse the pups with the highest nutrition possible.
It is one of the many reasons are health risks are less than 1%
The mother is only allowed to be bred if she is totally back in shape and if she can produce healthy, happy puppies.
This is not rocket science but simple common sense!
We are inspected by the MN board of Animal Health (MNBAH)
We are inspected by our vet
We have VERY HIGH STANDARDS for ourselves
We are involved in continuing education to be the BEST breeder
MNBAH has 26 standards
that ALL commercial dog breeders in the state are REQUIRED to PASS
We do MORE
than what is required
by the state for our dogs
If ANY MINNESOTA dog breeder does NOT pass the inspection
they can NO LONGER legally sell their puppies to you
till they bring their kennel up to the 26 required standards
NO NEED TO LISTEN TO THE PROPAGANDA
THE ANIMAL ACTIVISTS
WANT YOU TO BELIEVE...it is just lies
REMEMBER FEAR is just false evidence appearing real
why NOT to purchase from us
If you are not positive
that you are ready for a dog…
DO NOT PURCHASE ONE!
Puppies are not pieces of furniture to match your decor.
If you are not planning on fixing your puppy by 8 months of age inform us asap
Any fault that will not heal over time or
cannot be fixed during neutering or spaying
will be disclosed before pickup
if not fixing and your puppy has a fault
we will ONLY pay for the cost to repair the fault -minus the cost of fixing
cost needs to be comparable to cost of vet service in our area.
Examples: hernia, undescended testicle
If unable or unwilling to communicate by EMAIL
not answering the phone every time it rings
I do NOT loan, lease or take back a puppy
because you didn’t think about it...
unless there is a health problem with the puppy (see the health guarantee)
If you have difficulty saying NO
then a poor dog trainer you will be...
it is important to set boundaries.
To teach what is fine to do and what is not allowed.
This keeps your pooch safe, healthy and happy.
Once a puppy leaves my care
I can not guarantee that its health has not been jeopardized or
that no injury has occurred…
this is how I can insure that I do not sell puppies that have been
exposed to diseases, parasites or other dangers and problems.
Any breeder who takes back a puppy without
quarantining it for a least 10 - 120 days is asking for problems.
If you find that you made a poor decision or another problem has occurred…
then take responsibility and resell the puppy to a loving home.
Do not expect me to jeopardize all my hard work
to poor judgment or other problem.
You can email me for advise on how to resell the puppy.
I do not talk anyone into buying a puppy but
I have talked individuals out of buying one.
If you wish to bring someone with you to help you decide...
PLEASE...have them read my website before coming out.
They will have the same information as you.
We won't be wasting time telling them what you already know
from reading this website.
I want to focus on showing you how to raise & train the puppy
not covering the information shared here on this website;)
Thank-you in advance;)
Allow time for the website to load
scroll down to view ALL the info
our main focus is

What we do differently from other dog breeders
Why buy from us
due to the access barrier of no ramp
wide doorway to the restroom
we cannot provide a visits for wheelchairs
or others that cannot use stairs.
However someone could schedule an appointment
that can use stairs
take photos, videos for the handicapped person to view later.
facetime would be another option
by offering another method of service we are in compliance
