The goal of our breeding program is to produce:
Our breeding program has excelled in doing just that. Excellent temperaments, good health and proper structure all add up to the success of performance in the field and as a loved family pet. At Belhaven Kennels we are more concerned with the quality of our pups rather than the quantity. All our litters are planned with the puppy's future in mind. Because of this commitment we have a limited breeding program. We employ a screening process with an extensive contract (for our pup's well being). We also believe in a proactive relationship with our puppy's new family, by supporting the families with their training and teaching of their pups and we love doing it. Many puppies still come for visits and our family circle has broadened through the years to include many happy dog owners.
All our breeding dogs have been tested and certified/cleared for hip, elbow, shoulder, hock, patella heart and eye problems. We DNA test our dogs for EIC & PRA and more! We do all this testing to help ensure the healthiest puppies possible. Puppies are all health certified, given their first set of vaccines by a licensed veterinarian and micro-chipped prior to going to their new homes. We even start the crate training process.
Darlynn Tracy-Oberg has been breeding dogs since 1987. The Belhaven kennel name has been in place since 1999, in order to separate the breeding program from the RIGHT PAW Obedience school.
