Spring is in the air! and Smokey needs a new home!

The last few days makes us all hopeful that spring isn't too far away.
Besides walking outside and feeling the warmer air, it is also apparent in our office as the phone is constantly ringing about upcoming puppies. 
We have a great selection now and upcoming, so grab your favorite beverage and surf through the links.  If you see a pup or upcoming litter you are interested in, give the office a call.  We have a great staff that can answer any questions you may have.

Smokey is a beagle who is 8 years old.  Smokey originally came from our kennel and went to live with my sisters next door neighbor.  He has lived there for the last 8 years.  However, his owner is elderly and for the past few years has had a hard time taking care of him, so my sister went over daily and helped him with Smokey's care.  My sister just sold her house and is moving a few hours away from her current home and will no longer be able to help with Smokey's care.  His owner is very upset to lose his neighbor and helper.  We agreed to take Smokey back into our kennel until we find him a good home.  He has a great temperament, loves kids, cats and other dogs.  He could use more exercise and be on a diet.  He looks well "loved".  He knows how to use a doggy door, but will need work on letting you know he wants to go outside. 
If you would consider taking Smokey into your home, please give the office a call.  $100 re-homing Fee.

Crazy Weather !!!!

From the amount of calls that we are receiving asking about spring pups, I thought I would address potty training in winter.
I totally understand that standing outside when the weather is awful is not something anyone looks forward to.  However, I find it does have some benefits.
I just got a poodle puppy last week and have started his potty training.   He will be our new stud for our golden doodles once he gets old enough and he is one handsome guy. 
When it is nasty outside, he wants to be out there just about as much as I do.  That means he is quick to do his business and not distracted by mother nature. 
He has found he loves the snow and will romp and play too.
While enjoying a pup in the spring and watching them romp is a whole bunch of fun, it also takes more time.  Just as they have found the perfect spot (never have understood the criteria for the perfect spot) a butterfly goes fluttering by and they totally forgot what they were going to do. 
I guess what I am trying to say is that this is actually not a bad time to bring a new pup home and better yet, we are having some great reductions in our regular prices on highly sought after breeds.
So, if you are thinking puppy . . . take a look at the breed links, maybe this is a good time for you!
