Since what you usually see with the puppy pictures are the indoor kennels where the pups are born, I thought I would show you where the dogs spend most of the year when the weather is warm. Brindi and Willow are happy to show you theirs. 10 of the outdoor kennels are 5 feet wide and 10 feet long and one is 7 feet wide and 14 feet long. I don't like concrete so I use vinyl mats that are easily cleaned and comfortable for the dogs with patio blocks along the sides to deter digging. The board along the back bottom is raised for easy cleaning. The kennels sit inside a fenced yard where they can run play in the grass while their kennels are cleaned. All the kennels have metal roofing for weather protection. If you wonder how much they are allowed to just be dogs, check out my "Just Us" page of my Doxies doing what Doxies do.

The indoor kennels are smaller than the outdoor ones, but still roomy for the dogs. I did some refurbishing on the indoor kennels before the dogs came in for the 2015 winter. A few of them had "fun" with tiles last winter so I replaced it with linoleum before sealing all around the edges with clear silicone. No tile corners to get hold of now! I made the dividers taller with a cut out in the middle and it works great for keeping papers where they should be. The blue spruce was too pretty to paint so I put 3 coats of polyurethane on them to waterproof them and can still enjoy the colors in the wood. I'm very happy with the way they turned out. The kennel is heated in the winter with the wood stove that heats our house. It has two large vents with a blower and one vent blows heat to the kennel through an insulated 10" diameter PVC pipe. The large window in the back wall was a birthday present from my husband. There are two other smaller windows on the west wall, one that opens to allow a breeze on warm days and the other holds the air conditioner when it's hot.

Scroll down to see pictures of the indoor kennels.Two pictures were in the process of being rebuilt for easier cleaning and are all built now, and the outdoor kennels that I spent 2 years rebuilding for more height (for me) and changes made to the bases so fencing doesn't eat all the string from my weedeater. I finally was able to purchase metal roofing in 2013 to replace the tarps on the outdoor kennels YAY!

Upcoming 2017 litters bred at home are:
Upcoming 2017 litters bred to outside males are:
Annie (minimal dapple fawn) will be bred to Oscar when she comes in heat (longhair chocolate piebald cream carrier and dilute carrier). I will be keeping a male pup from this litter and the stud owner may choose a pup or may have me sell her pick of litter pup for her. I won't know until the pups arrive.
Nikki (chocolate reverse dapple) will be bred to Nestle when she comes in heat. Longhair chocolate based cream who produces about everything except piebald. I will be keeping a female pup from this litter and the stud owner may choose a pup or may have me sell her pick of litter pup for her. I won't know until the pups arrive.
Mel will be bred to either Dante (longhaired chocolate and tan cream carrier)or Simon (red piebald) when she comes in heat. My first choice is Dante but if he doesn't breed her she'll be bred to Simon.
Cally will be bred to Jack when she comes in heat. Longhair cream brindle. I will be keeping a male pup from this litter and the stud owner may choose a pup or may have me sell her pick of litter pup for her. I won't know until the pups arrive.
Diamond (blue and tan carries piebald from both parents) will be bred to Apollo when she comes in heat. Longhair cream piebald producer. I will be keeping a female pup from this litter. Because the stud owner is in Wisconsin she will be whelping her out after breeding and she will be selling all the pups. If you want one from this litter you will have to buy it from her and I will bring it back to Iowa when I pick up Diamond and my pup after weaning.
Bella (red dapple longhair) will be bred to Apollo when she comes in heat. Longhair cream who produces piebald. I will be keeping a female pup from this litter. Because the stud owner is in Wisconsin she will be whelping her out after breeding and she will be selling all the pups.
