We take careful measures in our program to ensure that all of our breeding dogs have that wonderful “Golden” temperament first, and foremost as well as their health clearances for hips, elbows, eyes, heart and Genetic DNA testing so we can produce structurally sound, healthy, quality puppies. Nutrition and environmental factors are as important as genetics so we ensure our puppies are given the best start.
Our girls are bred at age two or older, after they have completed their health certifications. We only confirm pregnancy by ultrasound and rarely do x-rays to count the puppies unless the benefits outweigh the risks. While research shows the risk of exposure is minimal it is still controversial. We never use invasive insemination procedures that include sedation or surgery.
We feel very privileged to be a part of the birthing experience! Our goal is for your puppy to be shaped into a happy, well-rounded and confident puppy.
Our litters are born in our bedroom and remain there for the first three weeks. This allows for our mothers to have complete privacy in a stress-free environment. We are present with our mothers from the onset of labor and they are never left alone. When the litter turns three weeks old, we move mom and her pups to our 500/sq ft livingroom. Here, mom and her babies will live until the litter is ready to leave to their forever homes at eight weeks old.
We incorporate both Puppy Culture and Avidog; two of the most proven programs to raise well-rounded, confident puppies. These programs have been a game-changer for our breeding program from day 3 through day 16 starting with Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) and Early Scent Introduction (ESI). These will enhance the development of strong nervous systems to emotional resiliency exercises, housebreaking, training, simple obedience, problem prevention and enhance their ability to identify and react to specific scents. We can say with confidence that because of this, we have the power to change the outcome of a puppy’s life by what we choose to teach, giving our pups the best start at life. Teaching positive associations with every day life is more than just exposure, it’s a blend of skills, positive experiences, and enrichment.
Our mothers are always allowed to be with their babies until they go to their new home. Raising puppies is a full-time commitment. Our puppies are never left alone and they are attended to 24/7.
We keep daily records on growth, milestones, along with notes on each puppy. We will share these notes with you when choosing your puppy.
We don’t take any risks with exposing our puppies to diseases therefore we don’t allow visitors for the first 5 weeks of our puppies’ life. We also do not take our puppies into our Veterinarian’s office, rather we have our Vet come to our home for their immunizations, microchip and wellness exam. We go to an extreme to protect the litter and we will ask you to comply to specific conditions when you do visit.
By protecting our litters from disease that can be brought in by visitors, we are protecting your puppy. We thank you for understanding the health and safety of our litters and hope you see this as a positive quality.
Note: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and everyone's safety, we have made the decision to not have visitors during this time except on the day you will pick up your puppy. While we always love and encourage our puppy families to visit our home, it is possible for an infected person to transmit it from their mouth to the puppy’s fur or face, and then you could pick it up from touching that puppy.

AKC Limited Registration
Age appropriate vaccines given by our vet
Veterinarian medical records
1 to 2 year warranty
