American Kennel Club
Our adult dogs are registered, and the puppies will be eligible to be registered with the AKC.
Founded in 1884, the AKC is the recognized and trusted expert in breed, health and training information for dogs. AKC actively advocates for responsible dog ownership and is dedicated to advancing dog sports.
Orthopedic Foundation for Animals
Right after two years old, we endeavor to have our adult females and males OFA health tested to assure our customers that they are adopting the healthiest pups from any breeder. Hips, elbows, and heart are some of the areas examined.
We also test our dogs for degenerative myelopathy (SOD1A, SOD1B) and von Willebrand disease I (VWD).
We highly recommend NuVet Plus supplements for your puppies. They help the immune system of a puppy/dog stay at its peak performance.
Each of our family breeders feeds high-quality dog foods and will recommend their preferred brands.
Please, do not overfeed your dog! Instead, follow manufacture directions for your dog’s age and weight. Overfeeding dogs is the greatest cause of cancer and joint problems in dogs. Keep them physically fit with top-quality food in the correct quantity and plenty of exercise. Other than an occasional treat of scrambled eggs or some cheeses including cottage cheese, we highly discourage human food given to dogs. Feeding dog food containing corn, soy, or wheat products is also not recommended. Cooked beef bones from your local butcher can provide a healthful treat. Do not offer chicken or turkey bones.
