Winter's here!!!

Well we finally got our first big snowfall of the season. We went from having barely any snow on the ground to over 6" in one night. Not unusual for around here, but it's a bit later then normal.
Here are some photos of Ark from today. He really enjoyed his first taste of winter!

Tracking Session

Here are a few photos from our recent tracking session. The tracks are single tracks varing in length of 8-15' and have been aged 5-7 minutes each. Each pup had it's own two tracks to work.

Alyona working her first track of the day.

The start of her second track, it was about 12' long.

Alyona, climbing around on our "puppy obstacle course" & looking for her treat :)

Arkane on his first track of the day.

Arkane starting his second track. It ran through a variety of ground cover(grass, dirt, pine needles).
Arakane, coming to "get me" & find his treat.

Anarchy, paitently waiting to start.
Anarchy working his first track.

Anarchy on his second track. It's just about dusk now & was getting hard for me to see where I had laid the track. It didn't bother him at all though :)

Available puppies

Below are a few pics of the three pups I have available. They are progressing very nicely in their training. These pups are available to work or sport homes only. I have also posted more updated photos under the "puppy photos" link.
Please email for our puppy questionnaire if interested in one of these pups or with any additional questions,
You may find the sale terms & conditions in the 4/12 posting, listed under archives on the sidebar.

2 solid black males. Both are suitable for SchH, Ring sport, or LE work. They have very high ball/tug drives. Both pups have HARD, solid bites on the puppy tugs. They have also started their tracking work & are doing well.

1 sable female. She is an excellent SAR prospect. She would also be suitable for club level SchH. She has high play/food drives & loves to please her "person". She really enjoys her tracking training & is progressing very nicely.

New photos

FINALLY!! New puppy photos are here. Go to the "puppy photo" link for lots more pics.

July 28, 2009


I am hoping to get the new photos up sometime in the next day or so, sorry for the delay. Our older Lab has had some medical problems, so we've been busy taking care of that.

Alana, Artillary, & Atlas have all gone to their new homes. CONGRATULATIONS to the new families!! We wish you the best with your pups.

Tattoos & Car Rides

The puppies had their first major outing this past Friday. We took them on a four hour car ride so they could get their tattoos done. I am happy to report that all the pups took it in stride & no one was car sick.
We were then able to go visit Angie at Steinig Tal Kennels, where Chico is from. I am very pleased with the comments from Angie regarding the quality of the pups! I got to see Chico again, he is an awesome dog! I also got to meet one of his sons, who is very handsome.
All the puppies are now microchipped, tattooed, & UTD on vaccination & deworming. Their AKC registration is also completed.

Puppy photos

Here are some random photos from this past week. The puppies are 7 weeks old now.

They LOVE playing in the pool!

Ears Up!!

Puppies are 6 weeks old now.
Puppies are about 5 1/2 weeks in these photos, sorry for the delay getting them up. We have busy with the holiday weekend.
Anarchy is the first to have both of his ears up! A couple of the other pups have one ear up. The others have ears that are at least starting to come up. Shouldn't be long before they all have them up.
They are now use to guns of varying types/calibers being shot nearby. They have also been introduced (safely) to all the noises, sights, & smells associated with the 4th of July. None of them had any problems or fear issues with any of this. They were all curious as to what was going on & why some of the other dogs were barking like fools :)
Weather forecast is calling for rather warm & sunny weather this week. So we have the puppy pool & sprinklers all set. They are use to the garden hoses & kids being in the (people)pool & the splashing/noise from that. We will be introducing the pups to the puppy pool, water, swimming, etc. this week. I will post photos of these events as they happen.

Rain delay

We took advantage of a break in the rain we have been having to get the pups outside for some play time. The weather has been less than cooperative lately, COLD & WET. So the pups were going a bit stir crazy inside.

They are getting better & better with housebreaking, using the dog door when needing to go potty. They are also starting on crate training.

We are continually exposing them to new people, animals, & various other things daily. They are starting to show individual potentials & drives now too.

June 25, 2009

Puppies are 4 1/2 weeks old now. They have grown and matured a lot in the past week. They are getting to spend more & more time outside exploring their surroundings. They have been introduced to kids yelling & splashing in the pool, water from the hose/sprinkler, noise from the lawn mower & weed eater, & have gotten to meet/play with the other dogs.

They are getting use to traversing over all different types of ground & chasing bugs, butterflies, & anything else that moves.

Feeding Frenzy

The pups are now 3 1/2 weeks old. They have been started on "puppy mush" & LOVE it! They also get to go outside a couple times a day, weather permitting. They are getting to be quite the little explorers.

They also have been started on potty training. Their puppy area is divided into a eating/sleeping area & a potty area. It has taken a few days, but all the puppies are using the potty area now. We are only having one or two "accidents" a day. Most of which are happening at night, the results of sleepy/lazy pups more than likely. Not too bad considering there are 9 of them running around.

Their individual personalities are starting to show up more & more each day. There are a few that are starting to show the potential for serious work or sport.
We will keep all changes & progress updated, as the pups grow & mature more.

Growing up......

The puppies are just over 2 weeks old. They are getting bigger & bolder by the minute. They are also starting to show their individual personalities.

I have updated the photos under the link "puppy photos".

For more information please contact us by email or phone.
