Simply put (and I know you’ve heard this before but it is true): You get what you pay for. Even with these wonderful dogs selling in the thousands of dollars, the AKC says that a true reputable breeder will do well to break even – and we ARE a reputable breeder.
Aside from dog breeding being hard work, it also costs a good deal of money to do it the right way. To insure the success with my program, I have and will continue to spend whatever it takes to provide my dogs with an excellent living environment, plenty of exercise, the best food, proper immunizations and a whole lot of love. I spare no expense in raising a litter of puppies.
Unfortunately, even many pet shops buy their dogs from puppy mills where the dogs are repeatedly bred, poorly socialized and rarely – if at all – see the outside of a cage. I have made a personal choice to never sell my puppies to pet shops for this reason. Our goal is to place all of our pups with kind pet lovers who will provide them with a wonderful home and life.
Quality is not expensive, it’s priceless. Since I have been breeding these dogs longer than most within the breed, I know how to separate myself from the average breeders that are in it to make a quick buck. I have built my program and the dogs that you now see the slow and solid way.
It costs more to do it the right way. So if you are bargain shopping, I’d advise going elsewhere. I often tell my friends that I’d rather own one $5000 dog than five $1000 dogs. Why? Because a quality dog gives you opportunity to create more, with wise breeding decisions. I wouldn’t and couldn’t settle for anything else. Could you?
