I am Debbie Snyder and Doug Smoot is my partner. We own a small kennel, D & D's here in North Central Kansas. We are set on 10 acres with a small pond. I am retired, I was a Zoo Keeper for 22 years. Doug was a welder. Which both of our previous occupations come in very handy with our dogs.
We are USDA & State licensed. A vet does a yearly check of all our kennel at this time he makes sure all our dogs have current rabies shots. All our dogs are on a vaccination & worming program. We feed a good dog food to our dogs.
We have dogs that are registered with several registries. ACA, ICA, APRI, ACH and AKC. Some are double and some are tripled registered. Many of our dogs are raised in our home.Most of our dogs are up on decks. Few big breeds are in spacious pens. Some of the smaller breeds are in long runs with rooster board floors and a big house attached.
All our puppies are whelped in a climate controlled building. Each room the dogs have also have outside runs to enjoy the outside also. Doug is currently working on a new whelp house for added room.
When I wean puppies I give them yogurt. I buy it by the case. They love it and it is very good for them. All of our adult dogs get milk bones every evening at chore time.
When you buy a puppy from us we require a deposit to hold until puppy is 8 weeks old. In that time I try to send you pics of your puppy weekly. So you can see them grow.
We ship our puppies with PetAir. We have used them now for about 3 years. Have had very good service with them. We fly puppies out on Tuesday and you receive your puppy the same day. Cost of shipping as of now is $350.00, which includes the airfare, health certificate & crate. Only then is a travel crate provided. We try to get your puppy as close to your home as we can. Puppies must be 8 weeks old before they can be shipped. I book a week in advance and full payment is due 2 weeks before booking is done.
Payments we accept are checks, money orders and PayPal. When using PayPal you must add an additional 4% to the total being paid.
We have a website where you can see people that have bought puppies from us. Go to "Photos" then click on albums. I put all the buyers on there that I can. www.dndpuppies.com
We have had people drive many many miles to pick up their puppies, it is nice to meet the buyers in person. We have met some awesome people and have puppies in many states. We have kept in contact with many of them. We really enjoy this. One buyer even flew his plane to pick up his Wire Fox Terrier.
When our puppy goes to their new home you will have a health contract, application for full registry, all age appropriate vaccinations and records, puppy care sheet and a Vet exam paper.
Your puppy will need to be picked up or shipped within 7 days after turning 8 weeks old or there will be a boarding fee added for each day passed the 7 days.
If for any reason you change your mind about the breed you have a deposit on & want a different breed there will be a $25.00 fee charged.
We want our puppies to have forever homes when they leave us. Please do your research on the breed you want to make sure it is going to work with your life style. When you purchase a puppy you are making a big commitment. The rewards are great!
Hope this profile helps you to get to know us. I know it is hard to buy a puppy from someone you don't know. We have references upon request. I want you to be comfortable buying a puppy from us. We will treat you the best we can. Feel free to ask questions and I will try to answer them for you.
Thanks, Debbie & Doug
