We strive to produce the total dog, combining correct conformation, working ability, temperament, and health. We believe all of these qualities are very important, not just one or two of them. All of our dogs used in our breeding program have appropriate health testing done before breeding, and we also train, show, and trial our dogs. We have both show and working lines and believe both lines have a lot to offer the breed.
