We believe that happy, healthy, well-adjusted dogs produce happy, healthy, well-adjusted puppies. For that reason, we have traveled the world seeking out the healthiest dogs with the strongest pedigrees for our breeding program. Furthermore, all of our parent dogs have been DNA tested for breed-specific diseases and tested by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) for the health of their hips, elbows, patellae (kneecaps), hearts, and eyes. You can view our parent dogs’ health certifications on the Dams and Sires subpages.
In addition to our emphasis on physical health, we breed for temperament as well. We ensure that all of our parent dogs have desirable personalities so that they breed wonderful family pets, but our work on influencing temperament does not stop there! In their first few weeks of life, our puppies undergo Early Neurological Stimulation, a practice which enhances intelligence, trust, and obedience. We also expertly socialize our puppies with adults, children, and other pets. Learn more about these practices in our FAQ.
