We believe all dogs should be part of a family. It is our goal to not use kennels, but to place our breeding dogs in their permanent, loving, forever homes from the time they are puppies. We can only keep so many dogs in our home and still be able to give them adequate attention. By partnering with us, you'll be helping us continue our breeding program while providing every dog a permanent home. The benefits to you would be receiving a top-quality puppy at a greatly reduced cost. Also while a part of the program, we offer a couple weeks of free boarding at our home when you are out of town. We will also pay for up to 30% of the cost of any training classes you and your dog participate in during the time you partner with us. Preference is given to families who live within an hour of our home, own their own home, have a fenced yard, and/or people who work from home - but I don't require all that. Give me a call and let's chat! Once your dog is of breeding age and on her second or third heat cycle, she would come stay with us to be bred for around a week. She would then return to your home for the next 8 weeks of her pregnancy. She would come to live with us for the last week of her pregnancy until the puppies are weaned, approximately 7-8 weeks. The number of litters she has is dependent on a case by case basis. It will most likely be 3 litters. Once the terms of her breeding agreement are met, we will spay/neuter at our expense and transfer full ownership to you. If for some reason, she is not bred, you'd be responsible for her spay costs. This is just a brief overview of our Partner with Papa's Pogram. If you'd like more information, please ask! This type of program is truly the only way for any breeder to provide each parent dog with adequate love and attention while continuing to provide amazing puppies, without the use of kennels - a win-win for all involved!
