We are a Family Breeder

Our mentors began breeding AKC Registered German Rottweilers in 1991. They have since retired and have trusted us, Jonathan and Sarah Barfield, with the legacy of their kennel. We were co-breeders of of theirs and share their deep love for the breed. Knowing the joy and companionship a Rottweiler can bring, we decided to continue to provide this amazing breed for other families. Our puppies are bred to be excellent security, service, therapy, seeing eye, hearing, occupational therapy, and show quality Rottweilers. (US military currently pays to train your puppy for PTSD therapy and other services. In some instances, service animals are fully tax deductible.) We home raise puppies to 8 weeks then they go to their family via air or hand delivery. The parents of the puppies are our furry family members and are very active in our daily lives. Each puppy is well loved and have human contact from birth. Our puppies come with a full new home puppy pack, AKC paperwork, age appropriate shots, 4 dewormings, and an AKC Reunite microchip. Dew claws are removed and tails are docked in the first few days of birth by one of our vets. All our puppies start on RAW diet once weened from their mothers milk. WE Will Not Leave Any Tails on our Puppies We feel it destroys the breed standard. We only show, train, and breed AKC Rottweilers. WE DO NOT ASSOCIATE WITH PUPPY MILLS. No matter where you get your puppy, you will always get a better puppy from a loving and caring breeder. Puppies deserve constant human attention. Buying directly from the breeder removes the broker and pet store from your puppy's life. You actually get a healthier puppy because your puppy is not exposed to other dogs that may not be healthy.

Food receipts for a family of 5 and my dog food bills match. My water bill has doubled. My electric has tripled. It is I, a breeder, who when my fridge quit, saved the dog meds and let the food go bad. My feet find the way to the kennel before I have even grabbed a cup of coffee in the morning and the kennel is my last stop before I go to bed. While my friends are on a cruise to the Bahamas and my family meets for Christmas I am home delivering puppies. I haven't had a real vacation in 6 years, but maybe soon. All plans are made around heat dates, whelp dates and vet dates. I shower and 10 minutes later my wife says I smell like a dog. My clothes are all stained with fecal matter, urine, afterbirth or bleach. I have to remember to clean my shoes before church. Most of my family breed dogs who else can you call at 3 am for support? Who else has the experience I sometimes need, the meds I sometimes need,or just an uplifting word I sometimes need? Who else would understand how it feels to have invested hours and hours in a weak puppy to lose it? Or the joy in investing hours in one that lives? I have slept on the floor beside a litter until the crucial 2 weeks have passed. I have bottle fed a litter of 4. Feeding every 2 hours and it taking 60 minutes to do for weeks at a time. I have learned to be proficient at tail dockings, vaccinations, sub-q fluids, bottle feeding and tube feeding. My vet knows me by first name and knows my number on caller ID. My vet knows it was I who added on the wing to the vet clinic . I am a breeder. It is to me that 63 days takes on new meaning, still excited by every new life. It is I who delivers all my pups, towels, scissors and heat lamps on ready happiness and sadness sometimes intermingled. It is I that must sacrifice so all of my babies get to a Vet in an emergency during deliveries, and pay over $5000.00 a year. Even though it increases my work load, I look forward to the 10 day stage when eyes open, and puppies begin to emerge from the helplessness of newborns. Puppy breath, a first bark, and a heart of exploration. I am not uneducated, unemployable, illiterate or lazy as some Animal Rights folks would imply of breeders. I am a conscientious lover of animals and I have found my niche. I am a breeder and I am not cruel, dumb, uncaring or criminal. I am not raking in money while sitting on my butt. Every penny I make I earn through blood, sweat and tears. My greatest joy is a healthy puppy and a wonderful home. The cards of thanks and the pictures of my puppy with its new family is the fringe benefits of my efforts. I am an animal lover, nurse, midwife, heavy laborer, customer service representative, marketer, AND I AM A BREEDER.
