Our breeding dogs are the centerpiece of FlowerPowerVT.
They are fully health checked and registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC), and enjoy a diet of top-quality food with regular portions of organic farm-raised chicken and eggs. Their health and happiness is our utmost priority. Maybelline, Josephine and Iko are also active with agility training -- the breed learns very quickly and is speedy on a course!
Pups are birthed in a custom-built area of our home. From their earliest days, they are surrounded by family, helpers, barnyard pets and a steady stream of farm visitors. We carefully stimulate them to assure confidence in socialization. They nurse from the dam for 6 weeks, and are off to homes at around 8 weeks once registered with the AKC. Bloodlines are carefully tracked and some litters are bred with outside AKC-registered sires to add diversity to the line.
Pups are evaluated and placed with homes according to temperament and color preference. Any dog may be returned at any time for any reason -- rest assured they will be cared for and loved. Visitors to the farm are welcome, please contact us and follow on Facebook for more up-to-date info!
