Our family believes that we have a lifetime commitment to each puppy born. That commitment does not end when the puppy leaves us to go home with their new family. Our families will always be available to answer questions or help in any way that is possible. However, we also understand that life sometimes throws us a curveball, and because those unforeseen circumstances can arise, our families will be there to help provide guidance and support should you ever need to re-home your puppy/dog. The last thing that we want to find out is that one of our puppies has found it’s way to a shelter or unfit home.
Who We Are
We began breeding in 1989 when we found there was a 7 year wait list for a service dog. After much research, we found that the service dog flunk rate was very high, and that they had trouble getting breeders to donate quality puppies with the right temperament. After lots of thought, we decided to carry on our families history and breed dogs; our parents had bred great quality dogs (Labrador Retrievers from my husbands side of the family, and Standard Poodles from my side of the family). We began breeding and gave the service dog industry first picks in our litters to ensure the successful graduation of our dogs. We then began to get the rest of our siblings involved in order to provide as many quality puppies as possible. And while we understand that we did not make a dent in the overall need for service dogs, we feel good knowing that we at least helped. These days, the service dog industry is now raising most of their own service dogs, and a few of our past puppies have helped in their breeding programs as well. We have, and always will be a small hobby breeder, with each family member producing 1-2 litters a year.
Our family members (sisters, brothers, and parents) are located along the front range of beautiful Colorado. Our family members work in Health Care, Quality, and Regulatory, so health and quality are ingrained in the way we manage our breeding program. We are not a kennel, but rather each of our family members maintains their own hobby breeding program.
Our dogs are our family members first and foremost, and all of our puppies are raised in our homes as part of our families. We currently have 6 members of our family in our breeding program which allows us to maintain gene pool diversity for the overall health of our dogs/puppies.
Our families carefully select their breeding dogs based on health, temperament, conformation, and intelligence. Each litter is carefully planned to produce the highest quality puppies possible. As breeders, our families continue to strive to meet the goals and standards set for these cross breeds as they develop. Our family members have between 8-40 years experience in breeding dogs. We are passionate about educating and informing dog lovers about these breeds. We believe in honesty, and encourage our families to choose their puppies based on temperament, as that is the deciding factor as to whether your new puppy will be a good fit for your family and lifestyle.
We understand that the addition of a puppy into your family is an important decision and commitment, so please feel free to contact any of our family members and we will be happy to discuss these breeds in detail so that your family can make an educated decision.
We believe in giving our puppies the best start in life that is possible. With that said, no puppy will be released before it is 8 weeks old. All puppies are health checked at 2-4 days, 6 weeks, and 8 weeks of age by a licensed Veterinarian. Each puppy will have two sets of puppy vaccinations (including influenza), worming, and a microchip implanted before being sent to their new homes. To make the transition easier, each puppy will be sent home with their first bag of puppy food, collar & leash, and a variety of toys that the puppies have had since birth (they smell like mom and siblings….so it makes the transition easier).
Please understand that our puppies happiness and welfare is a top priority. Therefore we do not ship our puppies in cargo. If you are out of state; most airlines will allow you to carry a puppy in cabin with you, and we are happy to meet you at Denver International Airport to pick up your new puppy.
We reserve the right to refuse the sale of a puppy for any reason.
