We are a small family hobby breeder in the rolling hills of Lancaster County, PA. We live on a 12 acre farm, with some chickens and our 4 dogs. They are our family dogs who are given free-range on our hill during the day and benefit from fresh air and sunshine. All our puppies are treated with tender loving care everyday by everyone in our family so they will be very well socialized when they leave for their new home. They get lots of fresh air and sunshine. We make sure that there is always fresh water and shade available when they are playing outside, especially in the summer months. During winter months they live inside with our family.
Diet- Mommas, Poppa, and the puppies, are fed a top quality, corn, soy, and grain free food. This affects their genetics and prolongs life and health. Research shows that feeding grain free food promotes healthier skin, shinier coat, less shedding, less bad breath, fewer and smaller stools, and much more. In order for the 2 year guarantee to be valid we require that you feed your puppy corn/grain/soy free food.
Vaccines- We give the puppies their first round of vaccines at 7 weeks old instead of at the normal 6 weeks. It enables their immune system to develop better. The vaccines we use are up to date and with the least amount of side effects possible.
Training- We start crate training so that they will be able to go without a potty break in the middle of the night. We place the puppies in their crate for 2 or more hours at a time. Their natural instinct tells them to not soil their bed, so usually the crate is clean when we let them out for a potty break. This is a fundamental potty training technique which will make your house training easier.
Health papers- We send along home with each puppy a packet of papers including a health certificate and written 2 year health/genetic guarantee, list of recommended dog food, puppy starter guide, etc. If you need to see a copy of the vet certificate before buying/picking up, we can get that to you after the puppy has had its vet visit (7-8 weeks). We can also provide some of the parent's papers upon request.
