I am now accepting names for my 2023 litters. I am only accepting names that have no *color*or*sex* preference and will be happy with whatever color and sex I have available.
I keep a very small waiting list so I can keep in touch with my prospective families. I *always* get first pick since I am breeding for myself and not for commercial purppses. If you would like to be considered for a spot on my waiting list you need to call me. I do not sell to show or breeding homes. Any puppy that leaves our home is *required to be spayed or neutered at an appropriate age*. If you are looking for something to breed please go elsewhere. Please *call* for more information. (208)339-0977. I will not respond to text messages if I haven't already spoken with you.
I am now requiring a deposit to be placed on my waiting list. THE DEPOSIT IS NON REFUNDABLE. It is a commitment to me that you will wait for a puppy, and a guarantee to you, that you will get a puppy. If you sign a contract and send a deposit and you decide to get a puppy from someone else, or you find another breed you will NOT get your deposit back.
My puppy price is $4500 for males, $4500 for females, with a strict spay/neuter contract, I do not offer full registration for breeding OR show. Please read my contract information page, so you understand what is expected of you, as a prospective puppy parent. (This is the standard cost of a purebred puppy from a responsible breeder that does their health testing!) These conditions are not negotiable, for any reason. If you are not agreeable to my contract conditions, please look elsewhere for a puppy. These conditions are placed for the safety and well being of my puppies. Pups are raised in our home, with our kids and other dogs, paper/house and crate training are well started. Phone calls are my preferred method of contact initially, so please feel free to call me! I will not hold a puppy without a deposit, and I will not accept a deposit without a signed contract. After you are approved, you can let me know if/when your ready to get a contract and get on my waiting list.
If you are looking for something to breed, please look elsewhere. I am happiest when my puppies are in a family environment as a family member. If you are looking for something to show, please visit a show close to you, meet some people, meet some dogs, and find a mentor.
I do not sell my pups off the internet. My website is a tool to show off my dogs and educate people. I absolutely will not consider you for a puppy without first speaking with you and making sure that you will provide a safe and loving home for one of my precious babies. If you are looking for a "cheap" Norwich, there are plenty of puppymills producing "Norwich" (no, they are not purebred, no they are not raised in the home and socialized, no they are not from quality parents, no the parents are not health tested and are usually not even healthy!) for $1,500-3000. I will not help you find something if this is what your looking for, please don't waste my time or yours.
A word about the difference between the sexes and colors, to set the myths straight. First, the color doesn't drive the car, neither does the color make the puppy into a wonderful pet. Families with no sex or color preference will have an easier time getting a puppy, than someone that for example only wants a black/tan girl or a grizzle male. And, about the sex's, since both are required to be altered, between 6-7 months of age, either sex physically will not be able to reproduce. Housetraining is the same, you have to be persistent and watch the puppy like a hawk regardless of what sex they are. Housetraining success is dependant totally on YOU and your ability to predict the call of nature. Both sexes squat to urinate as puppies. MALES tend to get along with EVERYONE and be more affectionate. The girls are affectionate as well, but the female "lap dog" doesn't come along every day. Males are not as moody as the females (unspayed females), they are very happy go lucky. Females that are not spayed mark worse than boys, the damage done to your lawn and house is worse from females because it's concentrated in one area, directly in one spot, whereas a male will mark upright things, and only a few drops actually make it to the grass/ground. Males typically do NOT "hump", if they are neutered at an appropriate age and you do not allow the behavior before they are neutered. Males are not prone to breast or uterine cancer. Both sex's can be protective, it depends on the dog and the situation. I do not try to persuade people to pick one sex or the other. I will offer my personal opinion "If something happened, and all my dogs had to be re-homed, and I could only keep only one of my dogs, I would keep a male. I love all my dogs, but the boys are by far the easiest to get along with in life!"
