The American Kennel Club is dedicated to upholding the integrity of its Registry, promoting the sport of purebred dogs and breeding for type and function.

At the heart of our breeding program lies a deep commitment to the health, temperament, and overall quality of our adult dogs. Before any of our dogs become part of our breeding lineage, they undergo extensive health and temperament evaluations. We are proud to implement a comprehensive DNA analysis, examining over 220 health traits and thousands of other genetic markers. This rigorous genetic screening ensures that we are fully aware of the potential health profile of each dog, and it provides valuable insights into their lineage, ensuring we maintain the highest standards for the health of future generations. Furthermore, all of our dogs are OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) certified, reinforcing our dedication to bone, joint, and overall orthopedic health. But it's not just about health statistics and genetic data; it's about ensuring that our dogs have a balanced temperament, are well-socialized, and fit the exemplary standards we set. By only breeding top-quality dogs, we ensure that the puppies we produce inherit not only the best traits but also the potential for long, healthy lives alongside their human families. Our unwavering commitment to these principles reflects in every puppy that comes from our home, reinforcing our reputation as breeders who genuinely prioritize quality, health, and the well-being of our dogs above all else.
