OUR BREEDERS

Where does this puppy come from?  It is a question we hear every day at Farmland Pets and we are proud to have a great answer to that question. 

Every breeder that has more than 4 females that sells to Farmland Pets must be licensed by USDA. Their inspection record with the USDA must have zero direct violations within the most recent 24 months. They also cannot have any violations on their most recent inspection that relate to the veterinary care of any animal on licensed property. Each customer will receive a copy of the most recent USDA inspection from their puppy’s breeder. Each out of state breeder is also licensed and regulated by their own state. Many of our breeders are also inspected by the AKC and must abide by all AKC’s requirements in order to keep their AKC credentials. We do also occasionally get puppies from hobby breeders (breeders who have less than 4 females). Those breeders typically specialize on a single breed and must still adhere to all Farmland’s humane care guidelines and medical protocols. When you purchase a puppy from Farmland Pets, you are choosing the most regulated, inspected source of puppies.

At Farmland Pets, our approach to sourcing quality puppies is different from most other pet stores. As stated above, we use state and federally licensed breeders but that is not the end of our buying standard, it is just the beginning. Our owners and sales managers travel all over the country to actually personally visit our sources so we know what we are supporting. We have visited kennels in Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin. Since the beginning of 2014, we have taken 21 breeder inspection tours and traveled over 20,000 miles visiting over 220 kennels. It is a massive investment of time, effort, energy, and money to KNOW where our puppies come from. 100% of the puppies at Farmland Pets are from breeders we have visited, we have the most transparent puppy sourcing in Washington! We want you to be proud and confident that your Farmland Pets Puppy came from one of the best breeders in the country!

Excellent! Recently bought a Varanus Macraei and it was couriered super fast (within a week). Have had to wait a lot longer from elsewhere. Was contacted before dispatch for evidence of set up which was fine and expected. All in all, very happy!
