Welcome to our website. My name is Dani Lou, and the following verbiage on this page is a bit about my history, and why I am so passionate about breeding and raising dogs.
We have been lovingly breeding puppies since 1991 in Washington State, concentrating on breed standard, sound body and mind, proper environment, socialization and nutrition. All of our puppies come with a 3 year health guarantee and shots for life.
Falling in love with dogs was easy, as I was raised breeding them in our home growing up as a child. I learned to care for new puppies, give vaccines, deliver puppies, and soon realized I had a knack for training. I became a certified dog obedience instructor at the young age of 20. After raising my own Cavaliers and Golden Retrievers while I studied at college, my mother and I had the bright idea of trying a cross bred litter with her Bichon and my Cavalier. It wasn't long before we tried breeding my Golden Retriever with her Standard Poodle. We loved them so much I still breed them to this day! My mother retired and I bought her facility and now have a family of my own and enjoy raising my children the very same way my mother raised me. We often find our children curled up fast asleep with our furry babies. Upon visiting, you will likely be met by two families. My family, and Chelsea's family. Chelsea, and her family are old family friends. We were both raised with the same type of passion and exposure to animals. We make a wonderful team, and share the same enthusiasm that is essential in raising our dogs. Our kennel is situated on 10 acres, with 2 homes. We both have children that are actively involved in the care and upbringing of all our fur-members.
We take great pride in all that we do. Star View has it's own Facebook group that so many of our Star View paw-rents use to brag, ask questions, and support one another. We are always quick to respond and love watching all of our fur members adventures! This group is wonderful when looking for a referral for local vet, groomer, boarding facility, and even scheduling play dates! If you're looking for advice, you'll get it! If you're struggling with puppy manners, lean on us! We can offer tips, and tricks to work through it all. If that doesn't work, come up for a free training session! Star View Kennels isn't just a kennel. It is a community!
Being a properly permitted breeding kennel is something we are extremely proud of and we love to share that with our prospective puppy owners. When shopping for your puppy, do your due diligence and ask questions like are you properly permitted, do you allow visitors in your facility, are the parents on site, to name a few. Beware, anyone can get a business license, but very few are properly permitted and operating within the law.
We welcome visitors both here and at our home, where every puppy is hand delivered and monitored regularly for proper weight gain, health and general well being. "Certified Training" begins at birth and ongoing consultation is available to all buyers. All parents are on site and you are welcome to tour our entire facility.Nothing is hidden behind magic doors here.We are proud of what we do and encourage you to visit and compare us with the others!
We have shipped our puppies without incident to as far as Brazil and the Netherlands. Shipping is not the most stressful thing on a puppy, as most might think. Actually leaving our peaceful, controlled environment and entering into it's forever home can be very stressful on small, young puppies. Please take this into consideration when bringing your new love home.
It may seem like we breed a lot of dogs, but actually only do a couple of litters of each cross every year. Most of our business is based on referral and deposits are always welcome on upcoming litters. We now offer a full line of Goldendoodles (Golden Retriever/Poodle), Shichons (Shih Tzu/Bichon), and Cockerchons (Cocker Spaniel/Bichon Frise)
Please feel free to browse through our website (in constant progress), where we are sure you will find some most useful information in choosing the right puppy as your lifelong companion.
