Our Visitation Policy

Due to the risk of diseases such as the Parvovirus, Coccidia, Canine Influenza, etc., we've had to change our visitation policy.  We've always just taken people at their word that they had not visited another kennel for at least 14 days prior coming here, but breeders do communicate and we know that that is not always the case.  We have learned that other breeders have had outbreaks of various illnesses at their facilities and protecting our puppies from illness is FAR more important to us than "making a sale".  With this in mind, we've decided to change our visitation policy, and not allow people to just "window shop".  Puppies are very fragile when so young, especially before they've had all their vaccinations.  So we've decided to change our practices and only allow people that have placed a deposit to come to view our puppies.  This way we're assured that no one has first been to someone else's breeding facility where they could potentially carry illnesses with them to our place.  After a deposit is placed, you are free to set up an appointment to view the puppies and choose your pick, if you haven't already.  We are NOT a Puppymill, we have nothing to hide.  We just value our puppies and need to protect them from diseases and parasites, etc.  I know people who already have a puppy reserved with us are thankful for this new policy, as they certainly do not want their new baby to get sick.  We are knowledgeable, professional breeders with many years of experience in breeding quality, healthy puppies.  If adopting a healthy puppy is important to you, you won't be disappointed when you do come to choose your previously reserved puppy from us!  To date, no one has ever come to visit our puppies and requested a refund, in fact we receive so many compliments on how our puppies and dogs are cared for.  Our dogs and puppies are our life, and people tell us all the time that it shows when they are here.

To place a deposit, or schedule a visit if you already have a deposit with us, please give us a call (612) 232-6399 or send us an email.  We do try to be as accommodating as possible, but not at the risk of our puppies' health.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
