These pups are from our 2016 litter and include Pics overview of their first moments, development, and beauty.

  Preparing our goodbyes for the two handsome, stunning, and race car speedy boys.

Our puppies come from exceptional and champion bloodlines.  They are raised in our home with our kids and other pets, and are receiving love, love, and more love.  We handle our pups several times throughout the day. They listen to music and TV from young age. They run to greet us and each want to be picked up, carried, or crawl up in our laps.   Being in our home, pups are exposed to many daily activities inside our home....noises, smells, lights, bedtime and morning routines.... all which strongly benefit pups for their stability, future transitions with new family, and improved intelligence for training.  Once pups reach 4 weeks, pending weather, we begin to make brief and supervised outside field trips (potty breaks).  The short outside field trips also help develop their gross motor skills and stimulate learning with all the other new smells, textures, sun, wind, warm/cold pavement, sidewalk, deck, puddle of water, dirt, leaves, grass, logs and woods.   We introduce all of these "first moments" to the pups because it aids and develops self-confidence and provides positive first experiences.  We purposely invest this extra time and education to give each pup the greatest opportunity for becoming your new best friend.       

In addition to receiving daily handling and love, our pups also receive several baths during their stay, weekly nail trims and light brushing, all in teaching and preparing pups.  We also ensure several Vet exams which include tail and dew claw removals, 1st vaccinations, deworming, and a final health exam. and microchip by our Vets.  New owners will get documentation of health records to bring to their vet. 

Pups will be starting with outside potty training (inside using potty pads and frequent outside trips), introductory crate training, and beginning enrichment and puppy manners training.  Our pups come running when called and are learning the "watch me" command which is pivotal for future obedience and training.  Our pups are also taken on routine and brief road trips, mostly for errands.  This allows pups  to  learn good car riding manners, meet new person occasionaly, and visit new safe place.  Riding in our van helps pups adjust to motion and prevents future car sicknesses and fear associated with unknown activity.  

We do our best to allow the pups to achieve their highest potential in their new homes.  We start with exceptional and champion bloodlines.  We invest in expenses and time for proper health clearances, ongoing training, and showing our dogs, which allows us to produce excellent pups.  We truly love our pups and pour our hearts into providing excellence.   

Please contact me to learn more about our wonderful dogs and pups.  Thank you.  Julie


Blue Merle pup Macy. These are pics from her younger days.  She was busy running, playing, and learning more each day.  She did well at her 1st Show, and later titled in obedience for her Canine Good Citizen.  She is extremely smart, very loving, and offers an amazing recall/come!     

Fabulous Five pups napping (all but Stella).
