Limited AKC Registration vs. Full AKC Registration

Limited Registration means that the dog is registered but no litters produced by that dog are eligible for registration. This is frequently the option if you plan to only have your dog as a pet. Full Registration means that you have full breeding rights and litters produced by that dog are eligible for registration. This is used if you plan on breeding your dog in the future. If you buy limited registration from us, full registration can be purchased at any time from us. Send us a message for more info.

Do you allow visits to see your dogs and puppies?

We don’t allow visits as we cannot guarantee that someone won't unknowingly bring any sickness, parasites, diseases or anything harmful into our home that could compromise the health, wellbeing and safety of our puppies and dogs. Until puppies have their first vaccinations at 6 weeks old, no visitation is allowed. We can provide video conferences where you can see the living conditions and get a feel for the environment that our dogs and/or puppies are in. We will send pictures and videos of our puppies and dogs upon request. We also update our page with weekly/biweekly photos of every puppy from birth and until they go to their new homes. We have detailed informaiton of each adult here at our place under the "Our Dogs" tab on our page. Please take the time to read through each adult and if you have any questions, please ask. We can provide references from our previous puppy parents, other breeders and personal references. A long with veterinary references upon request, and proof that our dogs are up to date on vaccinations upon request.
