 We do not have any available puppies.  We are no longer accepting applications at this time for future litters.  It will take us at least 2 years to get through our current waitlist. Stay safe everyone!!


Puppies are socialized utilizing components from the Puppy Culture philosophy.  The key word for us is “EXPERIENCES”.  They will have lots of experiences during the 8 weeks they are with us.  The first couple weeks, while eyes and ears are closed, they are handled daily and receive early neurological stimulation.  Once the eyes and ears open, we begin to expose them to novel sounds, sights, textures and challenges.  Every day brings a new experience.  They get regular daily human interaction from our family, but when they reach 6 weeks, they begin to meet lots of new people of all shapes and sizes.  They are taught to potty in a litter pan, turf mat, or outside, so house-breaking is much easier.  They also receive positive crate association.   By the time they leave, they are sleeping through the sound of thunderstorms and fireworks booming in the background. They are taught to overcome challenges and small stresses, so that they will become resilient and confident dogs, ready for any adventure!

Before leaving, all puppies are examined by a veterinarian, microchipped, vaccinated, and have been wormed biweekly.  Puppies will leave with a care package that includes lots of information for owners, a bag of the food that they have been eating, and a blanket with the scent of mom and siblings, to ease the transition into their new home.   Puppies are registered with AKC and their microchips are registered with AKC reunite by the breeder, as well as 30 days of free pet insurance.  

All puppies are registered with limited AKC registration, which means they can compete in AKC competitions, such as obedience, hunting, rally, agility. Full registration is needed only for conformation competition and for breeding rights.  All puppies are sold on limited registration. No Exceptions!

The cost for each puppy is $2500.  A $300 non-refundable holding fee is required to hold your puppy, after they are born.  This fee will go toward the final cost of the puppy. Payment in full is due before the puppy can be taken home, no exceptions.  Final payments must be made in cash, or checks can be submitted early enough that they clear before puppies go home.
