We realize that dog owners may want to breed their bitch, but do not have the facilities, time, or experience to give the litter the best possible start that we all want for our puppies. Boyko Ranch K-9s is offering whelping/puppy care services to a limited number of pre-approved litters each year.  These litters will receive the same excellent start that all Boyko Ranch K-9s puppies receive from birth until they are in the hands of the breeder or new owners.


We specialize in all size breeds. However, at this time, we DO NOT whelp French Bulldogs, English Bulldogs, American bulldogs and other bulldog breeds at this time; however we do have a very respected Whelper in the area that specializes in these breeds. 


Our kennels are located on our 10 acre property near our home in order to provide the care needed for whelping and raising a litter.  


Our whelping and puppy raising facility is approx. 64-120 sq feet next level dog houses(climate controlled) with 10×10 outdoor kennel runs for raising puppies.  Each bitch and her litter during here stay will have their own private dog house to ensure the safety of the bitch and her litter as well as make it as stress free as possible during their stay with Boyko Ranch K-9s. Our facility is able to accommodate multiple litters of various ages.  Everything was designed for whelping and raising puppies.  The whelping rooms provide a safe and quiet area for the new mom and puppies. We have medical grade fetal doppler, ultrasound machine as well to confirm pregnancies and to determine if puppies are in distress during the whelping process. Our focus is cleanliness, safety and most of all providing a wonderful home to the puppies before they go to their new homes. Our main goal is to provide a home away home atmosphere to your 4-legged family members while they stay at Boyko Ranch K-9s.
