How We Started
In 1994, a gorgeous black & white Siberian came to live with us. My sister, Crystal, had bought him for her husband as a late wedding present. However they could not keep the pup where they lived, and since we had fallen in love with him from our visits, we decided to take him. It's very true, what many breeders say... once you have one Siberian, you are addicted for life. You can't own just one.
We are very family oriented. Our puppies are raised in a loving environment and are spoiled when they go home with their new owners. Our kennel is state of the art and we get compliments on it all the time. Here are some pictures of the inside of it.
Our kennel has large indoor and outdoor runs, along with ceiling fans, plenty of windows, and fluorescent lighting. We also have a nursery area blocked off, which is kept heated with our propane heater. Pens are cleaned and sanitized daily, both inside and outside. We also have a large fenced in area behind the kennel, where our Siberians get time out of their pens to play daily. Our kennel was constructed according to Pennsylvania State Law, with the help of our local dog warden, and has always passed our twice annual surprise inspections with flying colors.

Our Dog Food
We feed Diamond Chicken & Rice Formula adult dog food. It has 26% protein and 16% fat. It keeps our dogs and pups lean & muscular, and doesn't add unneeded weight. We also give NuVet Plus Supplements daily to our Siberians, and require that all puppies stay on NuVet Plus Supplements for the duration of their health guarantee.
Our Breeding Program
We take our breeding program very seriously. Before any of our Siberians are mated together, we study the pedigrees to make sure that the best quality puppies will be produced, keeping conformation, temperament, and health in mind. Our Siberians are not bred before the age of 2 and they only have a few litters before they are retired to non breeding pet home. We do not believe in puppy mills and will not place our puppies with one! Our puppies are raised in a loving environment. Their pens are cleaned & sanitized daily, and they are socialized daily. We only have a few litters a year.
In 2012, we have made some very tough decisions and placed some of our Siberians who were not meeting the AKC standard, and have made some very positive strides towards showing our Siberians again. We are very hopeful for our future in the show ring with our beautiful Siberians!
Making An Appointment
As stated above, you MUST make an appointment to come and see my puppies. We are not Wal-Mart, and are not "open" 24/7, or to the general public. To set up an appointment time, please call or e-mail me. Let me know what time works best for you, and I will let you know if I am free that day. Weekends I'm generally free most of the day. Puppies are not available for viewing until after 8 weeks of age. Weekday appointments are available after 5:30 p.m. on select days.
