About Our "Grandpuppies"


At Hephzibah Kennels, we take great care in the whelping and raising of our pups.  The puppies are born in our home and a human remains with them around the clock until they are in the weaning stage.  By the time our pups are ready to leave for their new family, they are totally dependant upon human interaction.  Each pup gets personal attention, training begins as soon as they are weaned. They are introduced and socialized with kids and adults of all ages and sizes, also. Each of our Entle pack members takes a vital role in the upbringing of the pups, which aids in the success of the pups well-rounded education!

When the puppies are here, they rule our lives!  Kim, an avid quilter, sacrifices her sewing space for the puppies.  The quilting goes on a back burner so she can concentrate on the nurturing, training and health of the pups as well as handling the phone calls and emails.  Alfred does his share of spreading the cuddles, educating prospective families about the pros & cons of living with the Entlebucher.  We love the calls, letters and photos from our grandpuppy families!
