Where our puppies come from is just as important to us as where they’re going. And just like we have our puppies going to loving, furrrr-ever homes, that’s where we’re getting them! Our Petland breeders are some of the best in the country and we’re proud of each and every person we work with. Petland’s name has long been associated with high standards of care and animal husbandry, not only in our store, but at the source as well. We know that when you come into our store, you expect to find happy, healthy pets from places that have been thoroughly inspected and we respect that. So, when we hear, “Where does Petland get their puppies from?” we can give you the best kind of answer!
Shadow Valley Kennels is a USDA licensed kennel owned and operated by Vernon in Seymour, Iowa. Mr. Troyer has had a life-long love of animals, with dogs definitely holding a special place in his heart. He started raising hunting dog s at the age of 14, but has since moved on to the family pet realm. Shadow Valley Kennels now specializes in Yorkie puppies for sale and Maltese puppies for sale.
Vernon is an avid member of the local Iowa Kennel Assurance Program (IKAP). This program is instrumental in keeping breeders up-to-date on all the best kennel practices, genetic research and increasing animal husbandry standards. Vernon makes sure that his adult dogs are well taken care of, with a lot of focus put on exercise, stimulation and daily nutrition. This focus really shows in his beautiful outdoor socialization and play yard, meant for both the adult dogs and puppies alike! Vernon truly loves what he does and strives to raise the bar every chance he can, now that’s a mark of a great breeder!
