We are located in Moncks Corner, SC which is about 30 minutes away from Charleston. We have a small 5 acre farm where I get the joy of staying home with my daughter and working dogs daily. I am also a full member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) and an AKC certified Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Evaluator. All of our dogs are treated the best and are very special to us. Our dogs do not stay in kennels constantly and have room to run around in their own large areas with their own house and swimming pool and toys to keep them busy. We spend lots of time with them and their puppies to ensure quality companions. I love working with dogs and training them to do various things like tricks, obedience, retrieving, finding deer sheds or deer and even the simple things like climbing up on our tractor or on the side by side for some work or play.
My husband and I love to deer hunt, fish or anything outdoors so that is also one of our passions. We try to go every chance we get and have several trained dogs that will find wounded deer for us if we need them to when hunting. I have been training dogs and puppies now for 17 years and have 16 years experience in breeding. The first breed that I ever worked with were australian cattle dogs. I purchased my first corgi because I loved the intelligence and capabilities of the herding breeds but wanted something a little more compact and with not as much energy. I sadly had to say goodbye to my first corgi ever in 2020. He was a great companion and a true best friend. I know the sadness with the loss of our four legged family members. We do occasionally have a litter of corgis and I am honored to still have my first guys bloodline in some of the corgis but we mostly work on the training and titling our labradors. To date we have titled nine of our labradors in hunt tests and six for an obedience title. All of the puppies that are born here are very socialized and are born in their own whelping house that has A/C and heat to keep mom and babies as comfortable as we can. We have a small pond on our property that works great for quick training sessions and puppy water introduction when the weather is warm.
Another one of my passions is pretty much anything animal. My husband calls me ElIy Mae and it definitely suits me. I have done several rescues and everyone gets a kick out of when they visit the farm what they may run into here. We have a little bit of everything.
