We at Doyle's take great pride in our business. We have worked very hard and been very blessed to consistently produce the old
German style rottweilers. These are not the large breed types that have became popular in recent years. They have a great
demeanor and we have gotten great testimonies on how healthy and easy to train our pups are. We are pleased with our progress
thus far and feel confident that the best is yet to come.
Recently a customer had some concerns that I thought were legitimate and I felt that other customers may have as well. So I am
giving a little explanation to some of the practices I hold true. There seems to be concern as to why we do not let people walk around
on our property. Well, quite simply put...DISEASES. We have never had diseases like Parvo  on our property and we believe that it is
due to our business practice of not letting anyone on the premises. When people go shopping for a quality animal they go from
kennel to kennel looking for what they want, in turn if they contact any diseases in their travels it can be carried on their clothes, on
the bottom of shoes etc.

Another concern seems to be the lack of warranty on our dogs. We do offer a couple days for you to have your animals checked by
your vet to insure your puppy has a perfect bill of health to protect your investment and our reputation. As far as others offering a 2
year replacement/reimbursement warranty on their puppies, we do not.

We feel that we offer quality pets and have great testimonies to prove it. We use honorable practices in our business or we wouldn't
put our name on it! We really do not want to get caught up in debates down the road about a dog getting a disease that looks like a
genetic one like hip dysplasia. The fact is there are many things that can cause problems like this and how much it would cost to
prove that this problem wasn't caused from over feeding, accidental stepping on or kicking, accidental dropping, etc.

We at Doyle's would prefer to continue having customers as friends due to our sound practices and informative nature. If by chance
you have any questions whatsoever about my business, animals, or practices feel free to contact me personally. .
The causes of hip dysplasia are considered heritable, but new research conclusively
suggests that environment also plays a role. To what degree the causality is genetic and
what portion environmental is a topic of current debate. Environmental influences would
include overweight condition, injury at a young age, overexertion on hip joint at a young
age, ligament tear at a young age, repetitive motion on forming joint (ie. jogging with
puppy under the age of 1 year). As current studies progress, greater information will
help provide procedures to effectively reduce the occurrence of this condition.
In dogs, the problem almost always appears by the time the dog is 18 months old


There are two ways that this disease is transmitted, via contact with the soil or infected feces. The feces of a
dog infected with the canine parvovirus will be infected as well and can carry the disease to others. Other
dogs don’t even need to come in contact with the feces of infected dogs. The soil will absorb the virus from
the feces, so animals can still get sick, both with indirect or direct contact. Humans can’t get canine
parvovirus, but they can move the virus around. An example is stepping in canine feces and carrying them in
another location, on the bottom of their shoes.

The problem with this disease is that it’s very contagious and it will live for a long  time once it leaves the
dog’s body. It can stay in the soil and still be active one year after it’s eliminated in feces, and even if the
temperatures are extreme. Another problem is even after the dog recovers, he will still be able to transmit
the disease to other dogs for the next few months. That’s why dogs that recover need to be kept in isolation
from other dogs for some time.

The places where the dog has the most chances of getting sick are places where other dogs go, like
kennels, parks, dog shows, pet stores and shelters. Between 3 and 10 days will pass between the time the
dog gets infected and the moment he will start displaying symptoms. Even though all dogs can get this
disease, those that have the highest risks are puppies that are less than 4 months old and a few breeds that
seem to be more susceptible, like Dobermans or Rottweilers.
