WHAT IS A “BREEDER”?

I Am A Breeder

My food receipts for a family of seven and my dog food bills match. My water bill has doubled. My electric has tripled. It is I, a breeder, who when my fridge quit, saved the dog meds and let the food go bad. My feet find the way to the kennel before I have even grabbed a cup of coffee in the morning and the kennel is my last stop before bed. While my friends are on a cruise to the Bahamas and my family meets for Christmas, I am home delivering puppies. I haven’t had a real vacation in seven years, but maybe soon. All plans are made around heat dates, whelp dates and vet dates. I shower and 10 minutes later my grandkids say I smell like a dog. My clothes are all stained with fecal matter, urine, afterbirth or bleach. I have to remember to clean my shoes before church. Most of my friends breed dogs. Who else can you call at 3 a.m. for support? Who else has the experience I sometimes need, the med I sometimes need, or just an uplifting word I sometimes need ?

Who else would understand how it feels to have invested hours and hours and hours in a weak puppy to lose it? Or the joy in investing hours in one that lives? I have slept on the floor beside a litter until the crucial two weeks have passed. I have learned to be proficient at micro-chipping, vaccinations, sub q fluids, bottle feeding and tube feeding. My vet knows me by first name. The vet knows my children. The vet now knows my grandchildren. My vet knows it was I who added on the wing to the vet clinic.

I am a breeder

It is to me that 63 days takes on new meaning still excited by every new life. It is I who delivers all my pups, towels and heat lamps on ready, happiness and sadness sometimes intermingled. Even though it increases my work load, I look forward to the 10-day stage when eyes open, and puppies begin to emerge from the helplessness of newborns. Puppy breath, a first bark, and a heart for exploration. I am not uneducated, unemployable, illiterate or lazy as some animal-rights folks would imply of breeders. I am a conscientious lover of animals and I have found my niche.

I am a breeder

And although I feel no shame, there is a part of me that feels the need to hide from powers that could come to invade my home and take my dogs …maybe for finding a mild infraction, a leaf in the water dish? A kennel not yet cleaned for the day? A rash I am home treating? I tell my children and grandchildren to hush, do not tell others we are dog breeders, and I wonder when did breeding puppies go into the same secret place as criminal activity?I am a breeder and I am not cruel, dumb, uncaring or criminal. I am not raking in money while sitting on my butt. Every penny I make I earn through blood, sweat and tears. My greatest joy is a healthy puppy and a wonderful home. The cards of thanks and the pictures of my puppy with its new family is the fringe benefits of my efforts. I am an animal lover, nurse, midwife, heavy laborer, customer service representative, and marketer.

AND I am a breeder

We just got our mini bernedoodle from John and Rachel, his name was Pepsi and we changed it to Oscar. He is a very alert and smart dog. We already have him fetching a toy and he is listening to commands. He is very playful and very sweet. Any questions I had John and Rachel either replied by email or phone. When talking to John he is very direct and to the point which I personally like. And Rachel will sit and talk to you and go more in depth if need be. As far as the price for the dog we couldn’t be happier with everything it included in the price. You’re not just getting the dog, you get a bag of food to go home with. Your puppy comes microchip, a dog training video and also a link to register his name once you pick it out.As you can tell we are really happy with whistle hill and we would recommend them to everyone and we will….

We had a great experience with Whistle Hill Puppies. They were in constant communication up until our visit. We met with the breeder's wife and she made our experience easy. She let us take our time to get to know all of the puppies and was very knowledgeable of their personality traits, further needs, and associated paperwork. She answered all of our questions. We also took him to the vet 10 days into having him, as we were told to do, and everything was good. We have had Jax for 2 weeks now and he has brought joy to our lives. Thank you!

We got our handsome boy Jax from this breeder almost 8 years ago now, he’s a healthy happy puppy. When we went to get the puppy the breeder was honest and told us everything we needed to know to be good dog owners. They also care to keep up with how the pups are doing after you’ve had them. Here’s an update on our boy Jax. Thank you Whistle Hill! (The day we got him versus today)

Our puppy Grizzly just turned 2 and I must say he is the most loving, smart, playful and just overall an amazing dog! We recommend everyone that ask what breeder we chose. His favorite compliment is how handsome he is. He sure is! Whistle Hill Puppies thank you!

We got our King Schnauzer mix puppy in April of 2023. He just turned 1 and is the best puppy! He adapted so easily and Rachel sent him home with a blanket that had is Mom's scent on it. Rachel was so patient as we had put a deposit on "Joey" but when we saw them in person had a connection with "Jake"-now Winston. He has been in great health and so friendly with all other dogs. Slept through the night from night one on. Thank you John & Rachel.

I adopted a Pomsky named Coco, now named Lucy in spring of 2022. John was very helpful and empathetic when I was overwhelmed "Puppy Blues" with Lucy about a week into having her. A year and half later Lucy is wonderfully sweet best friend.
