Our newest series of blogs focus on our wonderful, caring Petland breeders. We get asked “Where does Petland get their puppies?” quite a bit and we want to show our customers that we take our breeder’s standards of care very seriously. The name Petland is synonymous with happy, healthy puppies and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
Oak Ridge Kennel is family owned and operated by the Yoder family of Seymour, Iowa. They originally started out as a home-based, custom built kitchen cabinet business. Levi and Wilma, along with their seven children, began raising puppies with a pair of pet Shetland Sheepdogs, and their passion for breeding was born! They loved seeing each little of puppies born and watching them grow into healthy, friendly pets.
In 2015, they built an impressive breeding facility for Shetland Sheepdogs for sale. They wanted a facility that was both friendly to the public and comfortable for their animals. The facility is state-of-the-art and draws fresh air inside from their geo thermal ventilation system to keep all their puppers cool in the summer and cozy warm in the winter.
In 2016, they added a large outdoor yard for the dogs to run and play in the lush, green grass. The Yoders say it is the perfect place to watch the dogs and puppies play together and it gives the children a good area to teach the puppies basic commands and start leash training. Levi and Wilma’s children love to help with the puppies and make sure to play with and cuddle each one daily.
Here at Petland, we can’t imagine a better place to grow up a Sheltie puppy! Want to see if we have any puppies for sale from Oak Ridge Kennel? Just click here for our available puppies page!
