Whelping box
We occasionally have puppies available.

Since I search
extensively for just the right pairing and am very concerned about not over-using my girls so we may or may not have
annual breedings.   Breeding announcements will be posted on this page as soon as a decision is made.  I do however keep a waiting list of
interested people, in the event of a breeding people on the list will be contacted.  Puppies are not placed on a first come first served basis,
puppies go only to approved homes and they are placed based upon what you plan to do with them (showing, working, performance
events, companion).  

--NEW REQUIREMENT FOR OWNERS--

As a part of our commitment to the health and future of the Alaskan Malamute, -ALL-  puppies will be DNA swabbed prior to leaving and
the swabs will be banked with OFA.  To complete the DNA banking however, at 6mos/1 year
I will **REQUIRE** all puppies have blood
drawn for sending to the OFA DNA bank.  While we hope all of our puppies will be healthy forever, should something crop up we can then
let OFA know and that puppy's sample along with related dogs can be sent to researchers to help with ongoing health research.  
Researchers also need samples from healthy dogs so it is imperative we have full cooperation.  Details will come in puppy packets.  
Exceptions are for our overseas pups as shipping the samples can be cost prohibitive.  We do recommend participation if there is
something similar in your country.

We breed to the AKC standard and in accordance with the AMCA code of ethics.  Our dogs are
typically between 60 and 115lbs, between 23
and 26 inches at the shoulder, a very natural range.  We breed for a well rounded dog, one who is at home in the show ring, the harness,
and anywhere else he/she goes.  I tend to only have spring/summer litters because our fall schedule does not always allow us to devote the
time it takes to raise a litter properly.

Please visit our friends, if we don't have the right dog for you, they might!

While we encourage forever homes, if any of our puppy people are unable to keep their dog, we care about what happens to our dogs and
will always take our dogs back!  

International folks:  Due to some issues in sending dogs overseas, we will require references, preferably mutual friends,
before we consider sending a dog.  People we already know and have met in person need not provide references.

A little about our puppy rearing:

--We raw feed all of our dogs--new puppy people are not expected to raw feed even though it is encouraged.--

--Pups going to kibble homes will be introduced to kibble before they leave here.--

--When possible, puppies are swim trained and harness tested before they go to new homes.  Potty training is started.--

--The pups are raised in the house and when they are 3-4 weeks old they are slowly introduced into the pack where they learn some manners.--

--They are dewormed at 7 weeks, vaccinated at 8 weeks, and microchipped before they go to new homes.  --

--We take them to other people's houses for socialization and introduce them to kids, old folks, and the noise and rush of dog shows (when possible).--

---
Puppies do NOT leave until AT LEAST 8 weeks of age. ---

--Included in the purchase price:  We individually register all puppies ourselves and send the papers to the new owners.  As part of our commitment to
our puppies and their welfare, we register each puppy's microchip with the AKC's Companion Animal Recovery (CAR) program, which is a lifetime
membership.  Should they ever be lost they could easily be reunited with either us or their owner.--  

--While visiting the litter is fine (by appointment only and only after we've been communicating for a bit), please understand that we are the ones who
decide which puppies go to which homes.  To understand more about why this is the case, please take a look at this article written by the people at
Ruffly Speaking--#5.  

--On a similar note, please understand that our dogs are home raised.  We are OF COURSE happy to meet with potential puppy buyers but being that it
is also our home, visits will need to be scheduled and we may ask to first meet you off the property.  It's nothing personal, breeders have been robbed
and even murdered by people visiting them under the auspices of wanting to meet their dogs.--

--People interested in showing are encouraged!  We will help you get started and encourage you along the way!  Because show dogs are on Full
registration though, we require a co-ownership (at least for a while) to protect the dogs from being bred willy-nilly.   We do not want our dogs being
bred without appropriate health testing, nor do we want them turned into a puppy factory.  Please feel free to ask further questions about this. --

16mo Nellie hanging out with her little half siblings.
You can see many of the dogs listed below on our Family page or on the Our Dogs page
Litter plans for spring 2019!
This coming spring/summer we will breeding Nellie.  We have been trying to decide between a couple males and because
making an improvement with each generation is important to us, we are choosing carefully.  A decision will be
announced  shortly.  Nell is a non-carrier of Polyneuropathy by pedigree,  meaning both of her parents were tested and
neither one is a carrier.  Nellie's OFA clearances, as well as those of her parents and half-sbilings, can be seen here:  
OFA

A bit about Nellie:  She is a second generation Powderhound and has been a nice combination of her parents.  She
competes in agility, rally obedience, and weight pull.  She's biddable and silly, yet a very nice working dog.   Most of the
time.  When she's not being silly.  Her half-siblings are also very good working dogs so we hope this tradition continues
in her offspring.

PUPPY APPLICATION.
