We are a licensed facility which means we meet and maintain specific guidelines and criteria as set forth by the governing authorities. We follow strict protocols which include mandatory, unannounced inspections.
We work with licensed breeders - They are held to the same (and more) requirements and standards as us.
*Licensing ensures that certain standards of care are maintained. That care includes many aspects, such as health, daily care, environment, local & federal laws, and even housekeeping practices! (Unfortunately, breeders are NOT REQUIRED to be licensed; it is optional.)
We also occasionally work with a small, select group of trusted, recommended hobby breeders.
*Having AKC affiliation IS NOT the same as being licensed.
*A kennel license is very different than a breeding license or a license to sell.
OUR PUPPIES HAVE A MINIMUM
OF THE FOLLOWING
INOCULATIONS & DEWORMINGS
(Approximately $350-$450 in vet care costs):
>1-2 Kennel cough vaccines
>5-way &/or 7-way combo vaccines
>Regular deworming treatments
>Parasite prevention treatments
(see "Contract/Policies" tab for details)
HOW WE DO THINGS & WHAT'S INCLUDED WITH EACH PUP
We use licensed breeders, & a very few select hobby breeders; mostly from the Midwest. (Because licensing is not mandatory, most local breeders are not licensed.)
We reserve the right to refuse any sale.
The pet business is a time consuming, labor intensive, costly affair.
We are proud to be one of the few puppy stores still in business,
and perhaps the only one where
you can still touch and
interact with them directly!
