We get asked, “Where does Petland get their puppies?” quite a bit. This is why we want to spotlight our outstanding Petland breeders in hopes of bringing our customers closer to where their newest four-legged family members come from. We know that not everyone has the time to visit kennels that may end up being several hours away, but we want our customers to be able to get to know our breeders in a way that makes them feel confident in the extremely high standards we set for the Petland breeders we work with.
Cloveridge Kennel is family owned and operated by the Mullet family in beautiful, scenic southern Iowa. The Mullets have always considered raising dogs to be a passion of theirs and it shows! They said their greatest joy is getting to work together as a family, teaching their children valuable lessons about responsibility and integrity. The Mullets all help out with the care of each adult animal in their kennel, raising and socializing the puppies and introducing them to new surroundings, toys and surfaces, like their huge outdoor play areas!
Marvin Mullet and his family began raising Pomeranians for sale, Cockapoo puppies for sale and Cocker Spaniels for sale in 2008. They recently expanded and upgraded their entire operation in 2015, wanting to provide the best home they could for their animals. The new kennel included a geo-thermal ventilation system to allow fresh air to be circulated constantly, as well as radiant flooring to keep all the mommies, daddies and puppies warm and comfortable all winter long!
The Mullets also work very closely with their veterinarian to ensure the health and safety of both the adult dogs as well as the puppies. Every puppy is properly vaccinated, de-wormed and receives prophylactic treatments that are age appropriate, however all this is overseen by their vet. They then receive a thorough head to tail examination to ensure each puppy is happy, healthy and ready for their new furrr-ever home!
