Certificates & Awards

This is my backyard, the dogs have full run of the yard and come in and out of the house through a doggy door as they please. The yard is also shared with my children that's why there is a jungle gym in the tree. The tree provides shade for my poochies in the summer. My dogs are mostly indoors but do go outside to use the potty and play. They always sleep indoors at night and during nap time. There is a kennel in the back but it is not used for the dogs. I now have my children's sand box and play toys inside there, so the dogs don't pee/chew on them. 

PlayPen

Once our puppies start to walk and get around well, we let them in this pen to play for up to 6 hrs a day. Puppies don't usually start to get really mobile until 6 weeks of age. All of our puppies are raised indoors not outside, and they are only caged at night for there safety. I used to let all my puppies outside with all my other dogs starting at 6 weeks, but my vet recommended that I keep my puppies indoors. So this is what we use. And of course, all of our puppies are well socialized and played with by our 5 children on a daily basis.

Backyard

My vet did an inspection of our facility and rated us in the top 5% for cleanliness, safety and overall on how we run our business. We are also part of AKC's bread with HEART program, we are required to do testing and to be inspected every 1-2 years. we have many certificates for completing educational classes through them. We also get inspected by AKC every 1-2 years.

Nursery

This is where mama and babies stay at until puppies start walking at 6 weeks of age. Moms get let out to use the bathroom 4-6 times a day and are able to get out and run around for a total of 3-4 hrs a day. Once puppies are mobile they get put in a playpen for the majority of the day and placed back in there cage to sleep at night.  My vet absolutely loved these cages as long as the puppies get let out, which they do. He also said these are the most hygienic and easy to keep clean for puppies as well as the safest. It is similar to what vets use in animal hospitals.

I was deemed California's top Miniature Schnauzer breeder for 2017 and given this award. How cool is that?
