dogs Available At DAINTREE KENNELS

Last Updated January 25, 2018

Daintree is currently accepting applications for our 2018 litters. Families are requested to complete a couple of stages of screening to become acquainted with Daintree and be sure about getting their pup from us. We are looking for suitable homes and have plenty of questions before these lucky families are put on our wait list. Once selected, families will be offered their carefully chosen matches. If there is not a match to what you want and need in a dog, we will work with you until the right pup comes along. It is typical to wait for 6-12 months for a Toller puppy from most quality breeders, however our average is less than that.

To find out more about our pups and their parents, click on the OUR DOGS link above and please check out our Facebook or Instagram.

  • Spring/Summer 2018- APPLICATIONS OPEN


Our Methods

Puppies are only sold to approved homes. Daintree thoroughly screens each applicant.

Our puppies are raised in a quiet and loving home environment with exposure to as much of regular life "stuff" as we can manage. We feed a balanced diet of raw food and follow a limited vaccination schedule.  Solid family dogs are our goal.

Families are invited to participate in an online group dedicated solely to their puppy's litter. The puppies are documented here with daily updates on progress, photos and videos.

Since July 2015, all Daintree puppies are raised with Jane Killion's Puppy Culture Program. This is a method of whelping and raising litters and has become a breeding game changer. Using Early Neurological Stimulation and many of the other tools outlined in the video series helps Daintree to produce stable, enrichment seeking pups who are calmer and more confident than previous generations. When you know better, you do better.
