Home Sweet Home

I get asked all the time about our "facility".  As a tiny, HOBBY breeder that only has 2-3 litters a year, I don't have a facility, I have a private residence just like you... and I am not open to the public for tours. The very idea is absurd.

We have 360 acres with plenty of room for dogs to run, explore and hunt...and they do!  We are fortunate  to have a climate controlled indoor kennel of 8 runs. We do not keep intact male springers on the property. Our dogs are not prisoners and the springers are kenneled only at night, when we are having horrible weather (muddy floors - OY!) and during heat cycles. The Sussex are full-time house dogs. Our property is gated with several security cameras strategically placed to keep track of spaniel shenanigans. There are two, one acre puppy and dog yards, and a 40 acre fenced "yard" for the house dogs.

Oh, and Yellowstone National Park is about 90 minutes away. A fun factoid: Yellowstone the TV show is filmed in Ravalli County, in western Montana...pretty far away from the real Yellowstone. I don't watch the show but I hear it's great and I sure get lots of questions about it!

Here are some pictures of Hellfire doggy life here:

Our puppies are whelped in the house, on proper bedding...no shavings, paper or straw

The puppy yard is in two parts - this is the one acre "big yard".

This is the "little yard"  - the puppies have access to it at night and learn to use the doggy door around 5 weeks old.  The lavender gate opens to the big puppy yard.
