Where does this puppy come from? This is a great question that we hear every day at Petland Novi and we are proud to have a great answer.
Every breeder that we work with that has more than 4 females must be licensed by USDA. Their inspection record with USDA must have zero direct violations within the last 2 years. They also cannot have any violations on their most recent inspection that relate to the veterinary care of any animal on licensed property. Each customer will receive a copy of the most recent USDA inspection from their puppy’s breeder. Each out of state breeder is also licensed and regulated by their own state.
Many of our breeders are also inspected by the AKC and must abide by all AKC’s requirements in order to keep their AKC credentials.
We do also occasionally get puppies from hobby breeders (breeders who have less than 4 females). Those breeders typically specialize on a single breed and must still adhere to all Petland’s humane care guidelines and medical protocols. When you purchase a puppy from Petland Novi, you are choosing the most regulated and inspected source of puppies.
At Petland Novi, our approach to sourcing quality puppies is different from most other pet stores. As stated above, we use state and federally licensed breeders but that is not the end of our buying standard, it is just the beginning. Our owners, sales managers, and kennel managers travel all over the country to personally visit our breeders, so we know what and who we are supporting. We also invite some of our communities Veterinarians to join us on these tours, so they can see for themselves where our puppies come from. We have visited our breeders in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Oklahoma, and Kansas. We also continue to visit each of our breeders on a regular basis, to ensure our breeders are continuing to maintain the high standards of care we expect. This is so we can show you exactly where our puppies come from.
Below are videos from our recent breeder tours. This page will be continually updated as we visit more and more breeders. We want you to be proud and confident that your Petland Novi Puppy came from one of the best breeders in the country!
