We receive an average of 10 applications a day since COVID-19, which are more applications than we can review and process. Because of that we ask that you only apply if you meet the minimum requirements.

We prefer active homes (but not required) that are involved in AKC/UKC conformation, dog sports such as CAT/Fast CAT, Agility, Obedience, Scent Dog etc. We especially like to see our dogs go into homes that have children who plan or are currently participating in 4H and or AKC Juniors with their dog(s).

We are behind in processing new applications, but if you are still interested in our program you will need to put in your application to get on our waiting list at:
