Breeder Info: Karen Rowan

Breed(s): Dalmatian

Karen & Paul Rowan are from North Carolina and breeds Dalmatians.   To give you a little background, we have been competing with our dogs in conformation since 1995, we have done a little agility and obedience work and are currently training our dogs for dock diving.  Our dogs are all health tested before they are bred and we require the same from the stud dog.  We do BAER hearing test, OFA & Penn Hips, OFA Elbows, OFA Thyroid & CERF (eyes)  We bred our first litter of Dalmatians in 1997.  Over the past 20 years, we have had no issues with seizures, copper storage, thyroid issues or stones.   When we do raise a litter, we dedicate ourselves to raising & socializing the puppies before they go to their new homes. Our puppies are born in our bedroom and at 3 weeks of age are moved to our kitchen.  In other words, they are not garage or barn dogs.  The puppies stay with us until they are 12 weeks of age.  Reason being, all the studies of animal behavior show that puppies that remain with their litter mates to 12 weeks have the best temperaments, are more social and transition very easily to their new families.  We have raised all of our litters this way and found it to be the best for the puppies.  When our puppies go to their new homes, they already have a strong foundation for obedience training.  They know sit, down, wait, are crate trained, socialized with children & dogs, they are leash trained and are pretty much potty trained.  The puppies also experience swimming, going over the teeter totter, A frame, dog walk, loud noises and have a foundation in scent work.  Our puppies start at $1,500.00 AKC proudly supports dedicated and responsible breeders. We encourage all prospective puppy owners to do their research and be prepared with questions to ask the breeder. Make sure you are not only choosing the right breed for you, but also that you’re getting it from the right individual.
