We believe in a Holistic approach to puppy raising and dog maintenance using Unrefined Cold pressed Coconut oil, Raw natural Honey, Food Grade DE and the natural Human food grade Nuvet plus Supplements and most of all, Holistic, Dog food. We also believe in partial raw feeding and home cooked foods and treats.
We do not use any Topical or Oral Flea meds on our kennel dogs or puppies and we have never had any fleas or ticks on any of them. Flea meds put poisons and pesticides in pet's systems which can cause damage to your pet such as Seizures and even death. We also do not over Vaccinate which runs a high risk of Vaccinosis, Liver damage, Neurological issues or even death.
Breedings do not take place here without full consideration being given to Mommas and Babies along with consultations with our Expert, Licensed Veterinarian who has approved our dogs Healthy to breed.

Puppies never leave Alzimm Kennels without you first getting to see the puppy, parents and our kennel. We do not condone or believe in purchasing puppies sight unseen, thus one of our many Reasons for NEVER shipping ANY puppy.
We also never meet anyone at another location to place a puppy.
When decisions must be made, what is best for our dogs and puppies and what is best for your dogs and puppies come first, no exceptions are considered.
We are here for the lifetime of your dog and puppy to support and advise as we can.
Reasons for Having Puppy Purchase Requirements We realize that many factors are involved in helping to provide you with the happiest, healthiest puppy possible. We also realize that how a puppy is treated, exercised, fed, socialized, vetted goes right along with helping to cause or prevent issues with or with out a genetic basis. After many long hours of research, talking with vets and breeders and raising many puppies , We came to the conclusion that what is asked for in our contracts is the best possible chance for your puppy's good start and hopefully living longer. Of course we are always available to help with advise for any issues or questions you may have for your puppy's lifetime.
1) Not all HD is Genetic or Congenital only. It can also be environmental, foods fed, injuries and more.
2) HD can also be brought on by early spay/neuter ( especially before 12 -18 months of age) This can cause the bones to not grow at a proper rate causing issues in bone plate growth Not to mention bringing on the much higher risk of cancer as much as 65% higher.
3) HD can happen when puppy is allowed to become overweight, be injured, rammed into by other pets or kids, causing undue stress on growing ligaments. etc The loosened Ligaments allow the Ball to slide out from the socket causing wear and HD
Studies show that early spay/neuter can raise risks of Hip Dysplasia and Cancers up to 75% higher
