Stowaway breedings are done with the goal of improving on the qualities of each future generation, while remaining true to the blueprint of the breed as provided in the AKC Standard. Each litter is carefully planned giving consideration to both the physical and mental characteristics of the parents.
Test results for the major genetic health tests available to the PWD breeder (GM-1, JDCM, EOPRA, and prcd-PRA) are utilized in both parents to insure no affected puppies are produced. Additional non-genetic testing (OFA) is performed to provide the best possible outcome in the future pups. Stowaway participates in the AKC Breeder of Merit program, requiring a minimum number of 5 years in AKC events and performing recommended health testing of breeding stock.
All pups are bred and raised in a family environment. A great deal of emphasis is placed on a safe and enriched environment with lots of socialization for their “formative weeks”.
The puppies will be temperament tested and matched with their future families based on preferences for sex, coat type and lifestyle. If I don’t have just the right pup for you I will gladly assist you in locating other breeders to contact.
Our next litter is due to arrive mid-December of 2018 and pups would go to their new homes around mid-February of 2019, stay tuned for more updates in November of 2018.
