Our Story

“We care for dogs

as if they were our own”

We are intentionally small and offer your dogs a lot of supervised outdoor play/exercise time and dogs get one on one attention as well as play time with other dogs if they want.

Love & Attention

“Animals will tell you everything…

you just have to listen.

I listen.”

I'm Shari Bartels and along with my family, we operate the kennel and treat the dogs as if they were our own, giving them love and attention and as much outdoor time as possible. Currently, we have two cats, two Border Collies and a Schipperke that run in our 10-acre fully fenced property that they share with registered Holsteins that the kids milk, show and raise as 4-H and FFA projects. Raising the kids around animals has always been a parmount importance to us, so opening a kennel is part of that. My kids: Ashlyn, Emma Kate, Reid and Claire are very involved in the kennel helping me every step of the way.
Being raised on a dairy and Quarter Horse farm I have a lifetime background of being around many animals. I have learned that animals will tell you everything you need to know with their eyes and their ears, you just have to listen. I listen. We appreciate the trust you bestow upon us with your dogs and do our best to make sure they are, first and foremost, safe and happy.
