I am a small hobby breeder located in beautiful northern Colorado. I proudly compete in the show ring (conformation plus numerous other sports (dock diving, barn hunt, fastcat, tracking, herding) with my dogs! Both AKC and UKC venues. Being a small hobby breeder means i do NOT breed often. I only breed once or twice every 2 or 3 years. I carefully screen all my potential puppy homes where i require my puppy application to be filled out along with references and interviews. I take great pride in my breeding program and im very dedicated to both my breeds. Complete health tests are done on dogs before being bred (both genetic and OFA)
"But i dont want a show dog, i just want a family dog"
Is a very common phrase i hear alot from those seeking a new best friend. my answer? BUT YOU DO! You should want to find a breeder who shows! Not all puppies born from champions/grand champions are show quality, which means those puppies are more suitable for pet homes! Each puppy still gets raised the same (puppy culture, ENS, etc) So us show breeders look for GREAT pet homes.
**I DO NOT breed doodles NOR have any intentions to do so! Please do not ask!**
**I DO NOT breed merle "poodles"! merle "poodles" are actually mixes and only unethical breeders breed them**
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions! Come see me and meet my dogs at local shows! Feel free to follow/like my facebook page for updates, pictures etc!
We are a small breeder who work hard on titling all our dogs in one or more sports. Conformation being our main sport we do. We have been breeding dogs since 2019. We strive to breed the best dogs who represent their breed well! Health testing is a huge must for us! That includes doing ofa such as hips, elbows etc. We believe everyone should get a well bred dog. Often times people get put off when they see or hear things like "champion/grand champion parents" thinking "we just want a family dog, not a show dog!" Not all puppies are show prospects which in turn, get to go home as pet puppies only! We start all puppies off on potty training, crate training, grooming training and socializing at a very young age! We do puppy culture and ENS. All our puppies get raised inside and get to go outside when the weather permits. We are very picky where our puppies go! so we require an application, an interview, and a strict contract for each puppy. Contact us to find out more about our methods and philosophy.
