Frequently asked questions
1. Can we visit the pups and meet the parents?
The answer is Yes! you are welcome to come and visit, however visits are by appt. only and I do ask that you not visit another kennel prior to our appt. and that you wash your hands and remove your shoes upon entering my home - this is strictly a precaution to avoid any illnesses etc.. from entering my home and possibly infecting my dogs.
2. Are the pups raised in your home?
Yes, We have 2 puppy rooms in our house that have 4x 6 foot puppy pens equipped with blankie, plenty of toys, and a potty area consisting of newspaper and puppy pens are cleaned several times daily.
3. How are the pups socialized?
All of our pups receive one on one attention daily with children, adults and other dogs as well as time "out of their pen" to explore and run around.
A radio is kept on for sounds and company.
4. Are the pups vet checked & vaccinated?
Yes, all pups are vet checked, current on vaccinations and have been dewormed several times prior to going to their new home. upon picking up your puppy You will receive a health record including vaccinations given and also the name and phone of our vet.
5. Are your adult dogs in the house or kept in kennels?
The answer to this question is yes and no - all of our dogs spend a good amount of time in the house - at any given time there are usually 4 or 7 dogs in the house, but they cannot all be in the house at the same time so we rotate dogs which provides all of our dogs with plenty of socialization and in the house time. When the dogs do have to be in their kennels they are by no means uncomfortable, the kennels are attached to the house and they have an indoor/outdoor run complete with heat, plenty of toys and ample room to run. All dog yards are cleaned daily.
Please note the majority of our dogs live a pet life in friends homes so the have their own family to love!!

All of our puppies come with a 1 year health guarantee. Cavachons have a 2 year guarantee . I would never sell a puppy knowing they have a health issue.
