Missouri Dept of Ag and USDA

We felt it very important to do everything the right way ... from purchasing our puppies with a plan in mind and hopefully from the right breeder, to providing them with the most modern kennel facility that we could build including central heat and air, to training and most of all ... all the love and undivided attention we can provide them!  We have taken things one step further by making sure that we ARE licensed with the State of Missouri and are inspected each year, so we will never be considered something that we are not (a puppy mill)! We always have passed our inspections with flying colors! In fact upon the recommendation of our inspector, we have become 1 of only 7 Blue Ribbon Kennels in the state ... we feel this is a great honor!  As our inspectors have noted on their reports. ." We easily exceed the Blue Ribbon Kennel standards and serve as a model for others in the industry!" We plan to continue on this path with both our hounds and our building.

You may have already checked with the state and see that we are classified as a "commercial" breeder - that is due to the way the Missouri Statues apply to us - we do not show or compete with our hounds so we are not under the hobby breeder. Please rest assured we are NOT a "broker", we carefully look into those that are wanting to purchase our offspring with a questionnaire and phone calls - we sell and will continue to sell only to families and law enforcement . . now we have rehomed one of our gals with a priest who renamed her from Emalee to Bobby as he had never had a female in his home before!

You can contact the Missouri Dept of Agriculture for information on any of our inspections, both regular or Blue Ribbon!
