What breed is your specialty?
We specialize in breeding XL American Bullies.
What are "picks" when referring to puppies?
Our puppies are sold as “picks.” What this means is that the biggest and best-looking male of the litter would be considered first pick male and would be the most expensive. The biggest and best looking female would be first pick female and it goes down from there.
What is the pricing for puppies?
Our puppies usually range from about $4000-$25,000. On occasion, we may have some starting less, so please reach out directly for serious inquiries. We also offer flexible payment arrangements for the right homes.
How do I reserve a dog?
The first step is screening to make sure your home is suitable. The next step is signing the contract. The final step is investing in a 50% deposit, with the remainder due when the pups turn five weeks old or before they are ready to ship. (This does not apply to people already in payment arrangements.)
What if I live in another country or state?
We can ship our puppies worldwide, wherever the breed is legal. We also have DDK franchises in other states and countries that may be more conveniently located for you. We also allow people to pick up in person if they choose to do so. In those situations, we meet somewhere public for the exchange.
Do you train all dog breeds?
We can train any breed depending on the type of training you would like done and if your dog has the correct temperament for it.
What type of training do you offer?
We offer a broad range of training options, from basic on-leash obedience to executive personal and home protection. We also offer behavior modification for locals.
What are your prices for training?
We require a 50% deposit to begin a training program, with the remaining balance due upon training completion. A handler’s course will also be included.
On leash obedience $5000
Off-leash obedience $10,000
Security and on-leash obedience $15,000
Security and off-leash obedience $20,000
Personal protection to executive home and family protection ranges from $50,000-$100,000
Can I be involved in the training?
Training is done as a board-and-train situation, so you can either drop your dog off or have it shipped to us. You will not be a part of training unless we are under a protection contract, in which case we will have scheduled visits for direct involvement. Board-and-train means distance is no issue. Your dog will receive the best training and care no matter where you’re located.
Can I purchase a pre-trained dog?
We occasionally have some adults available for adoption who have basic obedience training. If you’d like a dog for protection, we do not have them pre-trained and ready to go. We train very specifically for each person’s needs and lifestyle, so we choose a puppy that will best suit what you’re looking for and go from there.
What do you feed your dogs?
All of our dogs eat food from www.kelevgenetix.com
This premium, protein-rich dog food is formulated with superfoods and nutrients designed to benefit your pup, while the vacuum-infusion process traps in nutrients to keep it fresher for longer.
Do you stud out your dogs?
Our boys are available for public stud to pre-approved females. We do close them to the public during certain times, though. Contact us today to get locked in ASAP. Hulk is permanently closed to the public.
Do you take in owner surrenders?
For the safety of our dogs and puppies we do not take in surrenders. We are working towards opening a shelter in the near future so keep checking back!
Do you allow visitors/tours of your facility?
Because our dogs are a part of our family in our home, we do not allow visitors or offer tours. We appreciate our privacy as well as peace of mind that no contagious diseases or illnesses are being tracked into our yard.
