We are not accepting new deposits at this time, we are full and taking a break – thank you! We are making some changes soon with how we accept deposits which will help reduce our “paperwork” and make things easier for us to manage. We are planning to move to a new location in the future, and want to make the transition easier and more efficient. Current deposit holders will be contacted directly with additional information as needed.
Due to the unprofessionalism of a “highly competitive” local breeder, who has been supposedly “disabled” for years, yet at the same time, also claims to “work” and properly care for a breeding pack of large breed dogs, and who regularly hikes at 12k+ feet in rough terrain, off roads, etc… likes to place misleading content and statements on their site trying to poke at other breeders – we think it might be important to note a few things ourselves. First, we do not now, nor have we ever, “lived” off our dogs, something that would literally be impossible with the few litters we actually produce, and the amount of overhead a properly operated breeding program actually requires. We have full time income other than puppies, none of which is from “disability”, and we sure the heck don’t claim to be disabled while also claiming to work and properly care for a pack of large breed working dogs, which require physically demanding daily work and maintenance. This person has basically nothing to PERSONALLY show for over 15 years with the breed, yet posts misleading photographs, trying to take credit for things other people are doing, not themselves, and using that to try and put other breeders down. There is no requirement that any breeder must “work” their dogs, many very reputable breeders don’t, but when someone uses it as a tool to make misleading claims or look more desirable to those looking for a puppy, that is called deceptive advertising. We don’t claim to do anything we don’t actually do to mislead people, and neither would any other reputable breeder. We spend an immense amount of quality time with our dogs – all of them, and it shows. We also properly and legally report sales, keep proper licensing as needed, follow local, state, and federal laws in regards to collecting and paying sales tax, and properly report all sales and expenses each year with a licensed CPA. If and when there is any “profit”, appropriate taxes are paid, and the rest goes right back into supporting our dogs, and EVERYTHING is accounted for – Can they say this?
There is also a HUGE difference between breeding dogs too young or unhealthy dogs, back to back without proper veterinarian care, until they are too old to breed anymore – something this breeder is VERY familiar with, and breeding healthy happy dogs, starting at an appropriate age, giving breaks as needed, and retiring them at an early age of 4-5 years. This breeder has produced a puppy out of their own bloodlines without eyeballs, yet slams other breeders and their lines when they don’t get what they want from them. It is pretty sad when someone who supposedly knows the “science” of breeding healthy dogs, yet is more interested in trying to exploit the ignorance of those who don’t in an effort to try and “gain credibility”. We do not believe in telling people what they want to hear just to sell puppies. This person has also operated as a breeder in the state of Colorado for YEARS, exceeding the number of allowable litters multiple times, without proper licensing. Laws and regulations are not “optional” for any breeder. It is not our fault this person has done things to discredit themselves, we didn’t burn their bridges – they did. It is sad when someone would rather make targets out of people, instead of friends or colleagues – it’s a loss for everyone involved. They apparently seem to have nothing better to do lately than to spread disinfo and arrogantly assume no one knows, or will find out, the truth about THEM. We are personally tired of being such a major part of their “focus”, and so until they stop their nonsense, we will continue to respond to it, and expose the truth. We were perfectly content with keeping our experiences with this person to ourselves, never once publicly mentioned none of the dozens of incriminating things we personally witnessed and know, but they have made that impossible for us, and other breeders, with their lack of professionalism and constant unwarranted attacks. So, if it continues, we will be taking further steps. This is the last thing we will post in regards to the massive lack of integrity, dishonesty, and manipulation coming from this person. It is beneath us to entertain this person and their constant need for drama and attention, and we are not the only breeder who has had to put this type of statement out in response to their nonsense. Multiple breeders are now discussing how to handle this person if they do not cease and desist. We apologize to our site visitors for even having to see it, it’s truly ridiculous, embarrassing, and a waste of time and resources.
Please remember, we can never guarantee quantity, colors or sexes until they are born! We ALWAYS reserve the right, as the breeder, to select a puppy from a litter we are interested in keeping to add to our breeding program. Our needs as the breeder is always priority, as we have to always be thinking of the future. Picks are only offered on puppies that we make available for puppy families. If a deposit holder from a previous litter is “bumped” or otherwise unable to select a puppy due to something that happens with a breeding, they will be given priority pick in the next litter, as they have had their deposit in the longest. We go in order in which we receive deposits FIRST, and then, in order of pick right. However, if someone voluntarily switches to a different litter by “choice”, they then forfeit their place in line, and are not given priority, but are in line after those who already placed deposits on that particular litter. We do things FAIRLY, which sometimes requires us to make changes, but things always work out, and our families are always pleased with the outcome. By placing a deposit, you understand that this is a natural process, that things can change, and agree to remain patient, flexible, and understanding. If you want a specific color or sex, you may have to wait for another litter to be born or be flexible in your preferences depending on your pick right and place in line. We hope this clearly explains how we handle deposits, please be sure to read our puppy agreement (PDF Doc) under “Puppy Agreement” which clearly explains all of our terms and conditions.
