Professional handling services
for the discerning breeders who believe in showing only their very best,
looking their very best naturally.
By Reservation Only

*2014 Calendar is limited to Ringside Pickups for Standards and limited pre-show boarding for Toys & Minis*
You may contact Jennifer for reservations.

In-home Boarding on a smaller, more personal scale than most show "kennels". The grooming room is nearly all windows and attached to my living room via french doors. The outdoor kennel runs are a minimum of 6X12, cement footing, and either covered or shaded as weather dictates. The outdoor Toy runs feature heat lamps in the winter, absolute security year round. 3+ acres of grass and woods are fenced for free excersizing.
Expert Conditioning for optimum weight, muscle, hair, and mental status. The dogs are exercised a minimum of 4 times a day for time periods varying with the weather from 20 mins to 2 hours. Running free in the "Big Yards" (half acre yards, grass and trees) 1-3 times a day depending on each individual dog's needs.
Natural Presentation. Enough said?
Trimming is my form of artistic expression. I am, and always will be, a perfectionist when it comes to trimming.
Quiet country setting complete with horses and perimeter fencing and gated drive. We are two miles from the nearest highway, five miles from town, and an hour and a half from the nearest airport (Minneapolis/St.Paul Int'l).

First 4 headstudies by Jennifer A. Dege
(Crystal, Kia, Pilar, Taylor, Indi)

Stud Services Available

Ch. Refinne Scene Selection, a 25 inch SILVER son of Ch. JC's Pioneer Kaiser and Ch. Refinne Just Push Play (a Cole Porter daughter out of Indian Silk.) "Simon" is a square, leggy, necky dog with tremendous reach and drive. He has a very pleasing head and eye, and does not know a stranger. He has perfect feet. He does not carry a white gene, having been bred to three white bitches and no resulting white puppies.
Health testing - OFA Fair hips, Thyroid Normal, Skin Normal, CERF Normal, NE clear & vWD clear by parentage. Photos below. See Parade of Champions photo and pedigree in Poodle Variety Stud Issue. Stud fee $1750. He is available by Frozen Semen ONLY. Bitches must have hips, eyes, skin, thyroid, NE, and vWD Normal/clear ratings and be of approved pedigrees; those with performance titles are very welcome! I think this dog has a lot to offer silver breeding programs both in type and Especially Temperament. Frozen semen available with Refinne.
