Rules of the whelping house

Go home

We are not set up as a puppy store. We raise our puppies in our home.

We are by appointment only.

We do not allow visitors into our whelping area under any circumstances.

We provide a guest room specifically for our patrons to meet the baby. This keeps germs of our pack separate or to a minimum from the puppies as well! Parents typically are available to see; some moms become instinctively distressed or aggressive if their pups being handled by strangers. In that case we recommend waiting to choose from a different litter.

Once a pup is 4+ weeks we may have an appointment available for visiting during slower seasons.

We allow viewing of one pup per visit. We must minimize germs that come into our home and the handling of the puppies. We sadly have lost pups trying to accommodate wishes of patrons in the past. While we have the heart to serve and accommodate; The health of our dogs come first. The fragility of the puppies, pregnant and nursing moms are top priority.

If how we run things are a concern, feel free to contact the state of PA agriculture as we are regulated and well exceed the minimum requirements. We are licensed and inspected. We are also inspected by AKC.

Based on avail photos and videos; it is required that you choose one pup you’d like to see before visit via the photos posted online. There is a 15 minute time limit to handle your pup. They should go back to their mother promptly. We ask that you keep your visit no longer than 30 minutes long. We are happy to answer all your questions!

Hand sanitizer must be applied to your hands on site to hold one of our puppies.

Children are only permitted to hold puppies if they are seated on the floor.

We are committed to go above and beyond and hope to only improve as the years go by.

Sunday’s we are CLOSED

Sunday’s are a day of rest. We do not schedule visits, take photos, videos, take calls, etc on a Sunday. Some Saturdays may also have varying hours. There are two days a week that we schedule visits. This has worked best for us to cut down on stress on our family life. These two days may change week by week, just check for visiting availability. If you see a pup you really like, I advise you to reserve your pup with a deposit and visit later. We cannot reserve pups just because you’d like to come visit a week or two in the future. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!!
