Please note we are a breeding facility as well and therefore we require all boarding and board/train dogs to be up to date on all vaccines. If recent history is unknown, i.e. a new rescue, a negative brucellosis test is required as well. We do not accept dogs that have visited a dog park recently/frequently as this poses a hazard to all our dogs. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we want all to be safe.
* I will not take puppies/dogs who have recently been altered, had surgery, or have tested positive or been found with contagious canine diseases. I can administer medications that are needed for the quality of life of your puppy/dog. I will NOT give and mind/temperament altering drugs or sedatives. All altering/open wounds, if any, must be healed and a letter from your vet stating the health of your puppy must be obtained before I can take them.
Puppies aren't the only thing we offer here! (Though in my opinion they are the best thing we offer!) I also offer training and boarding. I feel like it is important to have a breeder who doesn’t hand you a puppy over the fence and say have a good life. On the other, I also don't feel the need to hang over you and tell you exactly how to raise your puppy. But I will be here to help you with all the questions, training tips, and any other problems that come with getting a new puppy or dog. Because who better to help you with your new puppy than your puppy's breeder. (Keeping in mind that I offer the same things even if you got your puppy elsewhere.) I offer puppy training which can be done before you get your puppy, or at a later date. It is of course is not required, but is recommended, especially for first time Chessie owners. I also offer training and boarding for all breeds and ages of dogs, because contrary to the saying, old dogs CAN learn new tricks! Check out my classes and contact me for rates (as they vary due to the difference in dogs) and specifics, or to schedule a meet and greet.

Crate Training--1 Month
Your puppy will learn to love their crate, which will keep everyone sane. This will also help to potty train your puppy. It would be best if you had a crate that is no bigger than your puppy, or at least a blanket you want them to have in their crate at home. Crates either wire or plastic can be purchased from me at an additional cost, as well as waterproof mats.
*All of your puppies items need to be clearly marked with their identification.
*What to bring for your puppy:
Food and water dishes.
No more than one toy.
A blanket or mat to put in their kennel.
Food and any medication they may need.
