We are a responsible hobby breeder. We are committed to raising healthy, happy and confident puppies that have endless potential. We focus on producing puppies with temperaments suitable for therapy or service work. Our breeding dogs are not just breeding dogs, they are our family and enjoy the comfortable life they deserve. Our parent dogs are health tested and actively participate in various canine sports and activities such as Scent Work, Rally, Obedience and Conformation. It is our goal that each one of our adult dogs is therapy certified. Our puppies are raised inside our homes using a hyprid Puppy Culture Protocol/Avidog program.
