Buying a puppy from us
The first step is to fill out an application, Be as complete as you can, these applications help us match you with your perfect pup. If our dogs seem like the right fit for you and your family, we will contact you to discuss your future puppy or adul from Fennario Kennels.
There is a "Waitlist" for an RMCD, and the average wait for most folks could be 6 months or more, depending on what you desire in your perfect dog. There is a Tiered Deposit system to be placed on the waitlist.
(See more about how the waitlist works below)
WHEN you see a litter, pup or adult that you may be interested in, let us know right away. If there is availability, we will note your interest in that dog/litter. We will work closely with you, through videos and email, phone conversations as well as an extensive social media community to match you with one of our fantastic puppies or adults. Transportation options are also listed below.

Our breeding program, Upcoming litters and future litter plans
Working with carefully selected dogs from working breed backgrounds, we hope to create
dogs for people that want something specific from their canine companion. We vet new owners with the scrutiny our dogs deserve, ensuring a permanent loving home for them. We are responsible for what we breed and offer continuing support for the dogs lifetime.
Our health guarantee is one of the most complete on the market today. Countless hours are spent pouring over pedigrees and contemplating clear health results to produce the most sound dogs possible, both in body and mind. See UPCOMING LITTERS page to see the plans in action. See THE BREEDING PROGRAM to get a glimpse into the mad world of the science of outcross breeding and the genetics involved.

Service and Therapy Dog training is tailored for the dog/person team they will become. We also offer group and private (in home possible) lessons for our dogs. See TRAINING for more information.
