Harley

Because we have a very deep appreciation and love for this wonderful breed, we spare no expense for the care and well being of our dogs.

Our furry family members live the good life here on our little "hobby" farm in Portage, Utah. Our dogs participate in daily activities with our family and have routines, which include visiting our other animals, daily hikes in the mountains, social playtime and continued obedience education. 

Our Breeding Program
We set the bar high for breeding excellence... 
  • Our puppies are from purebred Registered parents (AKC - Poodle and ABCA - Border Collie). 
  • Our sires and dams are health tested for hips, eyes and ears. 
  • You receive a certified pedigree for your puppy (family history).
  • We provide biweekly photo albums of each puppy @ 2 weeks, 4 weeks and 6 weeks of age. 
  • We provide video of the pups at 4 weeks and 6 weeks of age.
  • We provide a Volhard PAT at 7 weeks of age (we provide you with the test results prior to picking your puppy, which occurs AFTER the Volhard Test.
  • Your puppy receives full core vaccinations at 7 weeks.
  • Your puppy is Micro-chipped for easy identification by Vets, Humane Society and independent animal welfare institutions. 
  • We are professional trainers with 3 full time trainers on staff.

  • All of our pups are born in our house under strict supervision.
  • All of our puppies are examined by a licensed veterinarian.

Micro-Chip Identification 
All of our puppies are Micro-chipped for easy identification by Vets, Humane Society and independent animal welfare institutions. ***We will accommodate your request to not have your puppy micro-chipped if that is your wish.
 
Our Socialization Program
What is socialization? Introducing and familiarizing a canine to new experiences, including people, places, objects and other animals in ways that help the dog learn how to respond to and interact with these experiences appropriately and without fear. On our small farm we provide our puppies with an environment that allows us to control the experiences of all new puppies. We implement daily routines of love and affection involving holding and cuddling. We expose our pups to other animals, other people (17 nearby grandchildren), new objects, new situations and individual walks on a leash. Because our adult dogs are treated with the utmost respect and given ample love and attention, our pups learn by observing their Mom's behavior and interaction with our family. Because we are professional dog trainers as well as breeders, our experience helps us avoid mistakes and we set the stage for a very well balanced adult dog.
 
Choosing The Right Puppy
To help you choose the perfect puppy, at 49 days of age we bring in a professional non-biased trainer who will perform a 
Volhard PAT  on each puppy. This test helps determine temperament traits of each individual puppy.  We think that every breeder should provide this test and make the results available to their potential puppy owners, but few do. The reason that breeders typically do not perform this test is because they don't want to take a chance on "labeling"  their puppies with temperament data that may distract from their pup's cute looks and quite possibly discourage a sale in some circumstances. Well, we believe that it is more important for us to match up the right puppies with the right homes than to just sell a dog.
