My husband Zach and I (Kristen) live in southeastern Pennsylvania. We got married in 2014 and since then have been working to build a godly home and life together. We welcomed our first daughter in January of 2017, and we are excited to be expecting our second child in April of 2019! We enjoy working outside together on our one-acre property where we have a large garden, a few fruit trees, a grape arbor, a raspberry patch, and a few chickens. Feel free to email us with any questions you may have at KristensHappyTails@gmail.com.
Meet Our Dogs!
Mia- Miniature Goldendoodle
We purchased Mia right after we got married in 2014. Mia is a nice compromise when it comes to size, falling in the medium range. We like the low shedding characteristics of the Mini Goldendoodles, and we definitely like the friendly and gentle temperament. She has proven to be intelligent, friendly, and easy to train. She never tires of playing fetch, and she adores little children! Her silly and playful antics have brought us much laughter and entertainment. Sometimes she is content to snuggle on the couch, and other times she wants to run around the yard chasing tennis balls. She is always happy and eager to please. Her easy going personality makes her a good match with other dogs, people, and children.
Duchess- Irish Setter
Duchess joined our family in the fall of 2015. Zach wanted a hunting dog, and Irish Setters are such stunningly beautiful dogs, so we settled on this breed for our second dog. Duchess has become my big, cuddly lap dog when she isn’t bounding back and forth across the yard. She loves every person and every dog she meets. Her energy is endless, and her clownish joy is contagious. Her pedigree is impressive, coming from a long line of excellent and healthy field dogs. Her grandfather was a grand champion field dog, and those strong hunting instincts are very evident in Duchess.
Jade- Golden Retriever
Jade is the youngest of our girls. We got her in the early spring of 2016. She is very laid back, and we love that about her. She is very eager to please and was super easy to train. In fact, she learned so much from the other dogs, it seemed we hardly had to train her at all. She is happy, gentle, forgiving, and curious. She happily greets new people and new dogs and is generally well-mannered. Because of her laid back, charming personality and champion bloodlines, we are very excited for the day we can bless other families with her puppies.
Timber- Irish Setter
Timber is our only male dog. He is also the only one of our dogs that we did not raise from a puppy. He comes from the Celtic Irish Setter bloodline- an excellent line of field Irish Setters. He has the classic happy setter personality along with their trademark determination and independence. Timber has outstanding hunting instincts and a very handsome appearance.
Our Breeding Practices
We are neither a puppy mill nor a kennel. Our dogs are a well-loved part of our family. Although we did buy them with the intention of breeding, they are by no means simply a financial investment to us. They each receive lots of love and cuddles, regular exercise, and veterinary care.
We aim to keep our dogs in the best physical condition that we can. Before breeding, we make sure our girls are strong and healthy. We are careful to maintain a healthy weight and good muscle tone by feeding a high quality diet of Life’s Abundance food and giving them plenty of exercise. When it comes to medication, we believe less is more! Health begins on the inside with good nutrition and a robust immune system. We do our best to promote our dogs’ natural immune system by feeding NuVet Plus, a high-quality immune system supplement.
With our puppies, we do all we can to prepare them for their new homes. Our puppies come with a Health Certificate from our veterinarian, and they are started on a wholesome diet of Life’s Abundance Small & Medium Breed Puppy food. To protect and build their vulnerable and immature immune systems, we start our puppies on Nuvet Plus. We highly recommend that all of our puppies are kept on Life’s Abundance food and NuVet Plus when they go to their new homes. While at our home, we use the Misty Method of early potty training. We do this so that the puppies will come into your home well on their way to being crate trained. They will also be socialized with children and other dogs. We also offer several Puppy Packs to help families get all things that they need for bringing home a new puppy! You can see our Puppy Packs here.
Our goal is to sell healthy puppies that have received plenty of early socialization to ensure that they will have that loving and friendly temperament that will make them your perfect companion!
Thank you for your interest in us!
