About our Breeding Program

Leatherwood Kennels offers a few Select Breedings per year. We feed our Adult dogs Native Performance Dog Food. After years with another quality brand, we heard about this food and, upon further research, felt that its quality and digestibility were unsurpassed. It's not easy to find in retail, but we always have it available.

We NEVER breed our girls consecutive heat cycles. Just like us Humans, these hard-working girls deserve and NEED time for their bodies to recover from the stress of Motherhood.

Our puppies will cost an average of $1000. Why? Our goal is to better the breed by pairing Studs and Dams that have Excellent Pedigrees and Health Clearances, but, equally important, that have proven themselves in the Field and/or in Hunt Tests and Field Trials. Take a moment and look at our Dogs' Pedigrees, Titles and Health Clearances. We have invested a lot of blood, sweat and tears to train our Dogs to their highest potential and to compete in Trials to get our dogs Titled. We also have invested a lot of money for DNA Testing for DM, EIC, CNM and for OFAs and CERFs. If adding all of these costs into the 'plus' column isn't convincing, we also provide appropriate de-worming, TWO sets of Puppy Vaccines (Distemper/Parvo and Bordatella), and Vet Puppy Exam. Finally, WE pay for the AKC Registration* and offer a 26-month Guarantee against Hip Dysplasia.

We let our pups go home around 10 weeks old. We feel that this offers the littermates time to socialize and mature, greatly lessening the stress of an 'infant' 6 - 8 week old puppy that has been taken from its mother, littermates and familiar surroundings. We have found that our pups are more confident and adjust very quickly to their new homes and will be happy to provide testimonials.

In order to protect and preserve our dogs' heritage, and to continue to improve our line, we have begun selling our pups with a LIMITED Registration UNTIL your pup has received its OFA Results. If your DOg also is working toward Obedience and/or Hunting Title(s), then that's just a plus for Owner and Breeder alike. Once proof of OFA Results have been provided, we will sign for the Limited Registration to be changed to Full. There is a nominal fee payable to the AKC, but NO additional money required to be paid to Leatherwood Kennels.
