Our Facility

Starting in January 2017 we began to renovate our new facility in Ferndale area of Washington state. It has been an exhausting and yet rewarding renovation filled with Weather delays, time schedules and material issues. We are "fine tuning" the small details of the operation and hope to make the transition over the late Fall/Winter 2018, with completion in the Spring of 2019. We have managed to keep all involved of the updates and do plan to have a page dedicated with those pictures.

We run a top-notch facility where our dogs have plenty of room to run, protection from the elements, and loads of opportunities for socialization. We just built a "dog house" complete with heat and cushions for them to curl up on those chilly winter days. All dogs receive regular grooming and individual care. Providing health testing of various degrees/types is an on-going process in our adult dogs. These include such tests for MDR1, Pra/Prcd, OFA hips, H/C, CEA, CERF and DM. All paperwork and certificates related to the testing we have done can be provided upon request.
