Do you have a health guarantee?
Absolutely! We stand behind our puppies 100%. Please see our Health Guarantee.
What do you feed your puppies?
Purina Puppy Chow, found in most stores.
What do you feed your adults?
Pedigree Large Breed dog food.
Where are you located?
We are located about 4 miles east of Enterprise, about 18 miles west of Dothan. We are about 75 miles south of Montgomery, in southeast Alabama.
What hours are you open?
We are here most of the time. We do not have regular "open" hours as we do not have puppies continuously year-round. Please note we do not show our puppies until they are at least "four" weeks of age. We will be happy to set up an appointment for you to see our puppies and/or adult dogs.
We respectfully ask that you "not" visit any other kennels on the day that you visit our kennel. We work very hard to keep our exposure to outside health issues that may affect small puppies to a minimum, and we know that other breeders would appreciate the same courtesy.
Are the puppies wormed?
Most definitely. We worm the puppies three times from 2-6 weeks of age. Our puppies are vet checked. The worming information is included in your take-home packet along with the shot records.
Do your puppies come with full AKC registration?
Puppies come with a full AKC registration.
Do you give the puppies their first vaccination?
Our vet does. Puppies come with one set of puppy shots. A vet issued vaccination record is included in the new puppy owners take-home packet.
When will their next vaccination be due?
Generally at 9 weeks and again at 12 weeks (with rabies shot).
Do you protect against parasites at your kennel?
Absolutely. Parasites are a common organism, as are worms, and all breeders should protect their puppies from worms and parasites. We administer a prescription parasite preventive called "Albon" which we get from our vet. It’s expensive, but it’s worth it!
Should I take my puppy to the vet right away?
Your puppy will have had all of the health requirements administered by our vet that will ensure that you take home a happy, healthy puppy. You need to have your puppy vet checked within the 72 hours, per our contract.
What is included in the new owners take-home packet?
Best Boxers Kennel Puppy Health Guarantee/Contract
Registration Papers from the American Kennel Club
Vet issued shot record Small bag of Puppy food
Do you dock the tails and remove the dew claws?
Our vet does both.
Do you ship puppies?
Yes. We ship puppies when the weather allows throughout the United States. We do not ship overseas. They must be a minimum of eight weeks of age before they can be shipped. The cost varies between $325 and $350 depending on the time of year (summer when it is hot, we have to go to a different airport which is much further away).
Do you board dogs?
Not at this time. We tend to be very cautious about bringing in outside dogs for health reasons.
Are you a puppy farm or puppy mill?
NO! In a puppy farm/mill you will find small cages stacked, the dogs receive little to no exercise and little to no human contact. The dogs are unclean and receive lack of physical care. Here at Best Boxers Kennel, we invite you to come and visit if at all possible to see our facilities. Every part of our facility is cleaned daily. Our daily routine is such that the dogs are exercised each day going for walks through the fields in groups of four to six where they can interact with us, play catch and just plain run. After their walks, they are released into our large back yards to spend their day lounging in the sun or playing together with their toys. In the nighttime they are kenneled for their safety and to enable us to check each one for any health problems that may be surfacing. All our dogs here are our pets and we couldn’t love each and every one of them more. They are our number one priority and making sure they live a healthy and happy life is our goal. We really enjoy what we do and we think it shows!
