Kennel Safety Policy

Many inquire about visiting our premises to meet our dogs and puppies. While we appreciate the curiosity surrounding our furry companions, we exercise caution for safety reasons and are hesitant to allow visitors on the property. The primary concern is the potential introduction of contagious pathogens each time someone visits, as puppies possess immature immune systems. Complete immunity to diseases carried on shoes or clothing only develops after the puppy receives all three sets of vaccinations at 14-16 weeks old. Other breeders have experienced the loss of entire litters due to diseases introduced into their homes. It's crucial to note that disease transmission can occur without direct contact with the puppy, as contaminants on shoes and clothing may transfer to the property and then to the Dam, posing a risk to her offspring.
Furthermore, the majority of our puppies are already reserved by purchasing families. Allowing additional families to interact with the puppies jeopardizes their well-being. The unintentional introduction of viruses or parasites by a visitor is always a possibility. Our German Shepherd puppies are integral members of our family, sharing our living space. To safeguard both our puppies and our privacy, we arrange off-site meetings with our puppy customers. If you're torn between two puppies, we can arrange an off-site meeting with the options you're most interested in, limited to a maximum of two puppies at a time. We strive to assist you in selecting the right puppy through pictures, videos, and discussions about your preferences for a new family member. Prior to handling puppies, hands must be sanitized with the provided wipes or hand sanitizer. Meet-n-Greets will be scheduled based on our availability, with a maximum of two people permitted to handle the puppies during the visit. No Meet-n-Greets will be scheduled before the puppies receive their first vaccination, and if the puppies haven't completed all three shots, the visitation will be a "No Paws on the Ground" session. We encourage customers to make decisions based on visual materials and our breeder recommendations. We reserve the right to refuse if we believe the chosen puppy isn't a suitable match for your family. In the event of a disagreement on the puppy choice, deposits will be refunded accordingly.
Our commitment is to deliver healthy puppies with minimized risks of disease and injury. We meticulously raise and socialize our puppies within our home, controlling their safe environment. If a customer doesn't trust us as their breeder, we acknowledge that they may not be the right fit for us. Thank you for your understanding!
