The Carriage Hill Family knows that from the very start, a puppy learns important lessons through his experience of the world around him. Even in the first few weeks as he snuggles with his mother, wrestles with his littermates, and is handled by his breeder, the personality traits and social skills are beginning to form.
As the weeks go by, exposure to a variety of experiences is crucial to his becoming a well-rounded adult. Studies have shown that a puppy's experiences in the first three months of life strongly influence what kind of companion he will grow into.
Chris Cocallas and Bob Barnes are both AKC Certified Breeders and have dedicated their lives to the well being of animals. Their breeding process is a testament to the love and respect we have for all animals; all dogs and their litters are from a clean and safe environment that meets all AKC (American Kennel Club) standards.
Both Chris and Bob live by and practice humane and ethical breeding practices and procedures.
The Dogs with Disabilities Service Dog Association has been a recipient of puppies donated by Chris to be trained as service animals to work with disabled patients in need. Chris works professionally with the Glenview Police Animal Control Unit, Lambs Farm and other local organizations assisting with the housing and care of lost and stray dogs.
