The American Kennel Club is dedicated to upholding the integrity of its Registry, promoting the sport of purebred dogs and breeding for type and function. Founded in 1884, the AKC® and its affiliated organizations advocate for the purebred dog as a family companion, advance canine health and well-being, work to protect the rights of all dog owners and promote responsible dog ownership.
We only raise AKC registered Beagles and provide limited registration for quality pet and show homes.
Health: We are members of the National Beagle Club, which sets the conformation and health standards for Beagles in the US. We follow their guidelines on health and genetic testing. We use the Embark DNA Panel, which tests for over 170 health conditions. We also track all our offspring for any signs of genetic type issues. We are proud members of AKC’s “Bred with H.E.A.R.T” program, which requires these health measures, ongoing education, accountability and responsibility. Rest assured you are getting the healthiest Beagle Pup as possible.
Pedigree: All our Beagles are AKC registered. AKC has the highest fidelity of any registry in the US. We actively participate in AKC Conformation Show competitions and have produces many finished champions. Our pups typically have 70% AKC Conformance Champions in their bloodlines, often more. The higher the Conformation/ Championship, the better looking the Beagle.
Temperament: Good temperament starts with genetics, then is shaped at an early age (3 days) till they are 4 months old. Quality solicitation, if missed, can never be reclaimed. Our socialization program is best in class. We offer early neurological stimulation and early scent detection. These make for a better acclimated, well adjusted Beagles when they go to their new homes. We can also perform temperament testing giving additional comfort you are getting the right puppy for your family.
Love and Care: Our Beagles are born, raised and live in our house as a part of our family, keeping Beagles kenneled is against our philosophy of Beagle ownership. Our Beagles run in large yards, most many times larger than in most typical houses, which span across acres. In these yards they live in packs, which helps satisfy their need for social engagement, exercise, and of course the Beagle curiosity. We have a lot of happy Beagles.
We are Preservation Breeders. Without Quality Purebred Breeders standing up, the Purebred breeds, including Beagles, they will be a thing of the past. A key area that is attacking our Purebred legacy
is "Foreign Puppy Mill and Rescue dogs. Per the USDA, there are estimated 1.06 Million
dogs imported into the US last year. We proudly stand up for our Purebred Beagles.
Promote, Protect, Educate
Our guiding principle is best encapsulated in this phrase.
I didn’t choose to come into this world, Dennis and Kim made that decision for me. It is their responsibility to ensure I have a loving, caring home for all my life.
