* Price *

AKC offers two registration types to control breeding options and the price varies between the two, but is the same for males and females.  AKC Limited Registration (non-breeding) is $1,400 and AKC Full Registration (full breeding rights) is $2,400.  The AKC Limited Registration can be changed to Full Registration in the future by paying the difference of $1,000.  Deposits are $300.  

* Reserving Your Pick *

As soon as the pups are born, picks of the litter are available for reservation. I will create a new page for the litter which will have “Pay Now” buttons to reserve your pick directly through the website. Between the time the pups are born and the new page is created, you can reserve a pick by contacting me directly. The arrival of the new litter will not be announced until the new page is published. I usually have the page created within a day or two of the whelping date.

We Got Hit By Parvo – Details, Precautions, and Concerns for Willow’s Litter

In well over a decade, we’ve never had a case of parvovirus in our kennel, unfortunately, we’ve been hit.

We had two of three, sixteen-week-old puppies that were current on vaccinations, contract the parvovirus.  These pups had never traveled off our property and no outside dogs or individuals have visited our kennels.  As we reviewed our processes and precautions with our vet, he assured us that parvo is ubiquitous, virtually everywhere.  He explained that the Treasure Valley has been hit by an especially aggressive strain of parvovirus with numerous unvaccinated (any parvo is very bad for these dogs) and fully vaccinated dogs showing up in clinics around the valley and reducing the available supply of plasma.

After great effort, we did lose one of the pups and the second female is home recovering after a long hospital stay.  The parvovirus destroys the lining of the intestines.  This reduces the nutrition the body is able to absorb as well as allows toxic bacteria to leach into the body and bloodstream increasing the chance of sepsis.  She is still a sick girl struggling to gain weight but we are glad to have her home.

The presence of parvovirus on our property greatly increases the risk to our upcoming litter.  There seems to be a general consensus that the incubation period is 4-7 days with some suggesting up to two weeks.  We are committed to ensuring that our customers receive healthy puppies, so this presents a challenging situation.

If we lose any puppies after/if picks are reserved, the affected deposits will be refunded immediately.  If a puppy becomes symptomatic within two weeks after going home, the puppy must be returned to us for treatment and the price of the puppy will be refunded.  If a customer is unwilling to return the puppy for treatment, the maximum medical reimbursement we can offer will be the purchase price of the puppy.  The hospitalization and treatment are very expensive, Puppy #1 cost $1,400 and didn’t survive, Puppy #2 cost $3,400 and is still recovering.  Depending on the vet and the level of treatments provided, costs can exceed $10,000.

This has been a tragedy for our family and we apologize for the stress and uncertainty this may cause you.

Booker – Willow and Rico 3 YO

Booker has been an amazing member of our family for the last three years. He was the runt of his litter, but has turned into a near perfect 60-65lb boy who loves fetch, adventures, and hates being more than 10 feet away. He also gets along great with his 10lb brother and cat sister.



Bandit has been the best dog!! Accompanying us on hikes and camping, snuggling up to us at night and even protecting our daughters. Bandit and our 2 girls have become best friends (and partners in crime). He is loved so so much!



Bailey born from Rico and Sammy 2 and a half years ago. She has been with me at work and play. She hasn’t been able to duck hunt yet but she has been deer, elk and on scouting trips. Very good girl. Great attitude and a bit of a sense of humor.


Levi 7 Months – Sammies Puppy

Hi! We wanted to share with you how much we love Levi! He is the perfect addition to our family. He loves the beach, sun, parks, going on car rides and gets along great with our 13 year old lab Jake. Thank you so much!
The Bernard family


Izzie 3 years old now

We have had Izzie 3.5 years now and she is one of the best hunting dogs my husband has ever had (his words) she has also been the best family dog. She LOVES to play fetch and is an excellent running partner, and is wonderful with the kids… and is best friends with our cat Oliver. Oh and she loves to sleep with a pillow.
