Hi, I'm Aimee D.

We are a small breeder from Two Wells​,​ SA. Our Rottweilers are a well-loved part of our family so their temperament and health are top priority. We run a high-quality training and boarding centre situated in Adelaide and our dogs are apart of our everyday life. They train with us​,​ help us rehabilitate clients dogs and are well socialised in our dog day-care setting. All our dogs comply with NRC(A) Code of ethics and are Hip​,​ Elbow​,​ Eye and Mouth certified as well as tested for JLPP​,​ LEMP and DNA profiled. All Puppies leaving our home are ANKC registered​,​ microchipped​,​ vaccinated and wormed. We place a strong emphasis on raising well balanced​,​ confident puppies and follow the Avidog​/​puppy culture protocols​,​ along with growing up on 23 acres of land with other dogs​,​ cats​,​ children​,​ livestock and more! Full puppy information packs and support is provided to all our puppy owners - for life. All litters are carefully planned from health tested parents. Puppies are raised in our home and are well socialised prior to leaving us. Careful consideration is given to puppy placement and all puppies are sold strictly on Limited Register or Main Register by negotiation. We are members of the Rottweiler Club of SA.
