BREEDING AND SELECTION AT CEDAR VALLEY CANINE
The breeding program at Cedar Valley Canine is small and carefully monitored. We have been successfully breeding dogs for over 35 years, and we have taken that experience and expertise and used it to develop and raise our standards to the highest level of excellence. We proudly stand behind the Cedar Valley Canine dog.
We believe in strong genetics plus a stable and social environment. The Cedar Valley Canine dog is physically healthy, environmentally sound, confident, athletic and has strong social skills. We scrutinize the bloodlines of both the sire and dam in order to balance and enhance the strongest and most desirable character traits of each.
Europe and other countries have long implemented a Breed Survey to establish health and temperament guidelines in order to control and maintain the bloodlines they recommend for breeding.
In our 35+ years or both training and purchasing dogs from Europe, we have found that in many cases dogs with even the highest Breed Survey ratings in this area don't necessarily transition well into an everyday environment.
At Cedar Valley Canine we have developed a system of our own for evaluation that we feel both enhances the European standards of Breed Survey testing and exceeds it.
Our testing doesn't take place as a choreographed field exercise that is trained, but rather in a variety of "real world" scenarios.
These include but are not limited to: crowds, variable and extreme noise and lighting (gunfire), startle testing, stairwells and open stairs (inside and out), dark hallways and rooms, elevators, different floor surfaces, traffic testing and exposure to multiple buildings and locations.
In this way we can assure our clients that the puppy or dog they purchase from us will work in any home or work environment they choose - a busy office, construction site, the family home, your child's sporting event. Wherever you choose to go whether it be by car, private plane or on a tour bus, your Cedar Valley Canine dog or pup will be comfortable and confident - we guarantee it!
We strive to produce a joyful family oriented dog, friendly and loving, ready to play but just as content to relax quietly in the home.
They possess the drive and trainability that are the key elements in the training process whether it be simple obedience for the ideal companion or the highest levels of sport and protection.
Your Cedar Valley Canine puppy's training begins at birth - from the environment (our home) to the way we feed and interact with them.
We continue to provide support for you and your dog with the availability of a variety of training packages tailored to fit the different needs and levels of the individual and the dog.
We guarantee both the health and temperament of your Cedar Valley Canine puppy or dog.
We take our commitment very seriously.
We have invested in you long before you invest in us - it's the Cedar Valley way!
