We purchased a Standard Poodle from this kennel. It was kinda like what I did in the Maternity Dept with Mom's and Dads preparing to be 1st time parents. Sharon kept us informed at each important event of the litter by personal e- mail and pictures of their progress. The eight weeks went by so quickly and we could see our healthy puppy growing in an absolutely CLEAN & COLRFUL NURSERY! That was of upmost importance to me being, a nurse. TOYS were everywhere inside and outside, the bedding was clean and the mother was healthy. We now have a 5 month old healthy, happy puppy who makes regular trips to the kennel for Day-Care, Boarding, and Water Therapy. We never feel guilty leaving her when we go on Vacation because Sharon & Mike make sure her stay is safe and a good experience.
