Why? Summer of 2015, we allowed visitors when we had some young puppies - and 2 ended up getting very sick. Over $5k in emergency vet and round the clock care, 1 died and 1 survived with long term kidney issues. When new people or dogs come in, they bring in "new" germs. Puppies basically have little to no immunity. New germs can give them a cold or serious bacterial infection. Your hands, shoes, feet, arms, everything, has germs on it - your own ecology.
The 2nd reason is that our friend, a poodle breeder in another state, was recently robbed and murdered in her kennel.
We have also received very shady inquiries - and several counterfeit checks.
We know that our Instagram account makes this look like a puppy heaven and a place to come hang out at - but, it is not. Our homes are our homes. We take care of the puppies, and we have lives - we also value our safety and more than that, value that our puppies' health is going to be stable while with us.
