Each year we purchase a few puppies that we train and offer for sale. We do extensive research before we buy the pups. We only work with reputable breeders who breed from proven dogs (competition and/or hunting). We also look for breeders that do an excellent job of socializing the puppies. After we bring the puppies home we continue socializing, start housebreaking, work on obedience, introductions and training.
We offer trained dogs at the following ages:
