Sunset Ridge Puppies
We have been raising puppies since 2005. The health and temperament of our dogs are important to us. We strive to provide you with hardy puppies who are smart and friendly. We follow a rigid schedule with a variety of dewormers used at 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7 weeks of age. Puppies also have been vaccinated with Bronchicine, Neopar, the first round of puppy shots, and have a clear bill of health from our vet when they are ready to leave our premises at 8 weeks old. Each puppy has a microchip and dewclaws are usually removed.
Our 6 children help with the daily chores of keeping the dogs and puppies cleaned, watered, and fed. Their favorite chore is to interact and play with the puppies to be sure they will be well socialized when meeting their new families. Our pups can testify to being cuddled in blankets, riding in the large Tonka dump truck, and strolling leisurely in the wagon. We feel it is invaluable for our children to learn responsibility and how to care for God’s creation.
We invite you to enjoy the puppies in person at our facility or, if that is impossible, to view them on our website. Learn to know their personalities and feel free to ask questions about them. We are excited for them to meet you! And we are delighted to help you find the right fit for your family situation.

Frequently Asked Questions
We consider our puppies to be 90% potty trained which they learn from observing their mothers. But as they move into a new environment, they will need to relearn what is expected of them and will have an adjustment period till they can be trusted. We also begin the crate-training process for you but this will need refining after they move in with you.
While we provide as much training as possible while the puppies are with us, we stress the importance of obedience training after you receive your puppy because they can develop aggravating habits if left to do as they wish. Many dogs end up unwanted for lack of training while pliable. We don’t want that to happen to your pet!
If you require your puppy to be shipped, we work with airline pet programs to ship them to you. Shipping is not included in the cost and will be an extra $375. This covers the airline-approved crate, health certificate for travel, and the airline ticket. We will need a phone number, email address, physical address, and your closest airport information prior to booking a ticket.
Please ask to review our adoption agreement. If you are interested in a specific little one, let us know and we will help you with the process. Some families like to come see the puppies before choosing their favorite; others have a certain puppy that catches their eye immediately. Both ways are fine but we want you to know that we will not reserve a puppy for you without a deposit. This deposit will be deducted off the balance at time of pickup/shipping.
We accept payments in cash or via PayPal. Contact us about accepting checks – we have done this if we have 2 weeks for the funds to clear the bank before the puppy leaves here.
If you see a puppy you are interested in, please contact us to set up an appointment to come and visit our facility. We are open by appointment on most days. If you are unable to come here, please feel free to call, text, or email us. We try to answer all correspondence as promptly as possible though at times we do have a high call volume which limits our availability.
Because we reserve Sunday for God and family, we are closed which means we will not take phone calls, ship puppies, answer emails, or reply to texts on Sunday. Thank you for your kind understanding.
The acronym ENS stands for Early Neurological Stimulation and is a short regimen
of exercises that is designed to positively impact a puppy's development. According to this
information provided by the American Kennel Club,
"Five benefits have been observed in canines that were exposed
to ENS, including improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate); stronger heart beats;
stronger adrenal glands; more tolerance to stress; and greater resistance to disease."
