Heartland Classics

We are a family owned kennel whose experience began when raising Bichon Frises in our laundry room over 35 years ago. We are proud of our imported lines of rare breed dogs, most originating from the homeland of the breed. We strive to meet the breed standards put forth by the foreign kennel clubs and the American Kennel Club to produce your next quality pet.

Give us a call, we’d love to make one of our dogs – YOUR dog.

I grew up in the show ring exhibiting swine, cattle and Arabian horses so am not a foreigner to competition. I take pride in my three children and feel my place is to be here for them at all times. I normally have handlers with my dogs in the show ring throughout the year.  We are striving to produce a top quality pet, some of which may have what it takes to enter the show ring.

YES! Each of my parent stock has a name, a personality unique to only them, and a special spot in our hearts. They are microchipped for positive identification as required by AKC and our state kennel license, but never referred to as a number. Many have had their share of time in the back yard or in our homes. All are “social butterflies” and enjoy visits by our own children/grandchildren as well as friends who come to play

YES! Our veterinarian comes on site to inspect our operation, complete health checks on the babies, assist in difficult deliveries, and provide advice as needed. We are also licensed and inspected by the State of Nebraska and the United States Department of Agriculture. We are inspected by the American Kennel Club as well since most of our dogs are registered by the AKC.
