Thank you for visiting our website! Feel free to browse our "Frequently Asked Questions" page to see if we have already answered some of your questions.

A Brief Absence....

Pete & Julie will be away on vacation from February 23 until March 8. Our kennel manager John Durney, along with ranch hands Chris Ayers and Sawyer Tarkington, will be holding down the fort (or farm) while we're away. Julie's phone number will be forwarded to Pete's phone number: 530-598-1527. The travelers will be out of range of both wifi and cell coverage for most of the time, so they will answer voicemail messages and emails when they return. Thank you for your patience.

Denali's Black Puppies

We have puppies available!

  • Chocolate Puppies: We have 1 chocolate male puppy and 1 chocolate female available in Molly's litter and they are ready to adopt now!
  • Black Puppies: We have a few black puppies available in Denali's litter and they're ready to go home now!
  • Upcoming Litters: Go to our "Litters" page to see what puppies are available in both current and upcoming litters. We will have more puppies in the spring and summer of 2018, so if you'd like to reserve a puppy in an upcoming litter, please complete our "Puppy Preference Form" (link located at the top of our "Litters" page) and send it to us at: info@mmkennels.com. This form is a questionnaire that tells us exactly what you are looking for in a dog so we can recommend which litters we think would best fit your needs.
  • Shipments & Deliveries: Because we are located 4.5 hours north of Sacramento, many people prefer to have us transport puppies further south. By request, and for an additional fee of $140, we are sometimes able to transport puppies to Pioneer Park in Woodland, California (north of Sacramento, near the Sacramento Airport). We also ship puppies via airplane all over the continental United States, Alaska and Canada. (We no longer ship puppies to Hawaii, due to their restrictions.)

To Reserve a Puppy:

If you are serious about adopting a puppy from us, please complete our "Puppy Preference Form" (link located at the top of our "Litters" page) and send it to us at: info@mmkennels.com. This form is a questionnaire that tells us exactly what you are looking for in a dog so we can recommend which litters we think would best fit your needs. If you already know exactly which puppy in which litter you want in a current litter that is already born and listed on our website, please complete only the top contact information and last signature page of the "Puppy Preference Form;" then send the document to us via email with a photo of your $300 deposit check. We will hold your puppy for you for 10 days as we wait for your check to arrive in the mail. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to write to us or call Julie at 530-598-0943. Thank you!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Please visit our "Frequently Asked Questions" page and, hopefully, your questions will be answered there.

MMK Programs:

BASIC OBEDIENCE & ADVANCED GUN DOG TRAINING: Find out more about training on our "training" page. You can also view clips of training videos on our "videos" page. (If you scroll down to the bottom of the videos page you can also view links to past litters of puppies for your viewing pleasure.)

STUD SERVICE: Please view our Stud Dog Breeding Sires page and contact us to discuss stud fees, canine dispositions, etc. The cost is $1,000.

STARTED DOGS: We don't have any started dogs currently available, but we have a couple in training. To find out more, please call Pete (owner of MMK) at 530-598-1527. Just FYI, most people get started dogs from us from one of two ways: 1) They purchase a puppy from us and bring him/her back to us to train or 2) They bring us their own personal dog for us to train.

SCENT DETECTION: Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), our current trainers are training so many dogs right now that we have temporarily suspended our canine scent detection training program until we can hire a new trainer.
