I have been a frequent visitor to North Washington Street Kennel many times over past three years, as I am a dog lover. I can assure you that this is one of the finest dog facilities I have ever encountered. First of all, they have a very qualified veterinarian on staff. This vet monitors the health of the puppies while they are at the store and admininsters care to them after they are sold. How many pet stores have a qualified Vet on staff?? They acquire their puppies only from Federally and State licensed breeders, and they inspect these kennels regularly. There are no puppy mill puppies at their facility. They also have several veterinarian technicians employed at the facility, one of which is always on call, 24 hours a day, in case of an emergency. This on call vet tech is for those who have bought puppies and have health related issues during off hours. They provide this service so that you don't have to use an emergency vet and spend thousands of dollars. If you purchase a puppy from them, and it has or develops a condition that was undetected at the time of purchase, they will treat the puppy at no cost to you. These people really care and it shows!

I have purchased two puppies from North Washington Street Kennel in the past year and a half. I could not have been happier with the service I received, and with the puppies that I purchased. Both of my puppies are very healthy and are still cared for by the Veterinary staff employed by the kennel. When you purchase a puppy from this kennel you are given a guarantee that your puppy is in good health. If it is found to not be healthy in any way, they will treat your puppy at no charge to you! When you purchase a puppy you are given a free exam with their vet, but you are not required to use it. You are welcome to take the puppy to any vet you would like to have its health evaluated, the good thing about using the vet at the kennel is that it is much much cheaper! It is obvious the kennel cares about the puppies or they would not got to such lengths to keep them healthy! I will continue to purchase my puppies here in the future!

I never in all my years buying from them had a sick pup or seen sick puppies, i live in Colorado for 23 years. A very friendly environment, and the owner gets all the pups from reliable breeders, not puppy mills like you would see in mall shops. very good place to get your dogs.

It is horrible that in the U.S. today there are stores that sell puppies! Owner Jeff Fortin owns the puppy mill his puppies came/come from. Don't be fooled, reputable breeders do not sell puppies to pet stores, only puppy mills sell puppies!
PLEASE research before you buy, adopt -don't shop!
"Google" the owner of NWSK Jeff Fortin- you will be disgusted and saddened!

The North Washington Street Kennel was very helpful and we found a Schnauzer puppy that was perfect for our family. We have had our puppy for months now and he is very healthy and happy.
North Washington Street Kennel provided us with a free visit to a Veterinarian and has helped us with any questions we have had.

The owner of North Washington Street Kennel, Jeff Fortin, just had 1200 dogs killed at a kennel that he owns in Kansas because of a fully preventable distemper outbreak. Google it - it's all over the news.

First, everywhere I mention "They" I am talking about the "OWNERS DAUGHTER and STORE MANAGER" as they represented them selves to be.. "They" lied to us, when "they" told us that our puppy came from an AKC registered Male German Shepperd and an AKG registered Siberian Husky Female. They even wrote Shepperd/Husky mix on our paperwork. At the time of purchase, then 1wk later and follow up 2 weeks later, we were told we could have papers and pictures of his parents for our/his records, but were put off each time with a promise they would provide them shortly. We could not see any evidence of the Shepperd in the pup, but figured why would "they" mislead us. Grizwold has been with us for 2 months. Grizwold had a DNA test when we were refused info from the store. As stated, we paid quite a sum for him to join our family. "They" informed me that we were never told any such information would be provided that it never would be provided. The test showed absolutely NO evidence of German Sheppard at all. In other words "They" knew that "they" were misleading us when we bought him for many hundreds of dollars. "They" new after 2 months we were not going to give up our new family member, to probably be destroyed because he is no longer a puppy and could not be sold as one. We want to be fair and pay a reasonable purchase price for Grizwold as he should have been described. But personally, I think acting in good faith, they should return the complete purchase price knowing of our famly's attatchment. Insider Pages requests says that you have to rate them or I certainly would NEVER give them any rating at all. My only remedy is to take them to Small Claims Court (already looking into this progress). With the possible help (we are contacting them ASAP) of two well known consumer advocates, they could possibly expect a lot of public questions regarding their practice of regularly deceiving customers. Please, lets not forget about the poor innocent puppies. Grizwold had lice, ear mites, Giardia(sp) and Crypto(sp). Someone should look into what ever laws there are regarding puppy purchases from out of state, to be resold here in Colorado. Colorado enforces laws against Puppy Mills and we have absolutely no idea if Kansas even has these laws or not, and now wonder if "they" were truthful about that information. STAY AWAY AND HELP CLOSE THEM DOWN!!!

PUPPY MILL PUPPIES ********BE WARNED DO NOT SUPPORT?? - ?? - Today PUPPY MILL PUPPIES A puppy mill is a facility, large or small, that breeds dogs for profit. These facilities are notorious for ignoring the dogs' physical and emotional needs. The dogs ARE IN HORRIBLE PHYSICAL CONDITION go crazy from boredom, and their bodies waste away. They receive no compassion, and their spirits are broken. They live and die in pain and misery. THEY ARE EITHER EXPOSED TO THE ELEMENTS OR NEVER SEE DAYLIGHT THEY DONT KNOW WHAT TOYS ARE MUCH LESS GRASS.. MOST FEMALE DOGS CAN NOT WALK AND ARE CRIPPLE FROM YEAR AFTER YEAR IN A CAGE PRODUCING PUPPIES AT EVERY HEAT FOR PUPPY BROKERS AND PET STORES LIKE JUST PETS. How do you tell if a pet store gets puppies from puppy mills? First of all, pet stores that have a large selection of purebred puppies (say, 20 to 30) year-round are almost guaranteed to be getting dogs from this type of facility, since otherwise they would not be assured of a constant supply. Second, people who care about puppies look for good homes for them. They do not ship them off to be sold in pet stores THERE IS NO IN BETWEEN REPUTABLE BREEDERS DO NOT SELL ON THE INTERNET OR TO PET STORES. A third indication that a pet store's puppies are mass-produced in puppy mills is if pet store employees are reluctant to tell you the name of the breeder or where the breeder's facility is located. They may say they get puppies from "private breeders." Puppy mills ARE private breeders. JUST PETS will cited a "strict privacy policy" regarding its breeders. On registration papers provided to customers,if you get them they failed to provide any information about the dog's breeder. Because its a puppy mill if they do that breeder is in NE/MO/AR or OK and if you research it you will end up at a puppy mill. You will never see your puppies mother or father because if you did you would cry and you would worry about the health conditions of the pup. **PET STORES BUY FROM BROKERS WHO BUY FROM PUPPY MILLS BROKERS ARE THE MIDDLE MAN BETWEEN THE PUPPY MILL & PET STORE THEY WILL TELL YOU CRAP ABOUT HOW THEY MET THE BREEDERS LIES THE PUPPIES ARRIVE WEEKLY ON TRUCKS FROM ALL OVER THE US BROKERS GATHER THEM UP FROM PUPPY MILLS AND THEN DELIVER TO THIS PLACE. PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELVES GOOGLE PET STORE CRUELTY OR COMPANION ANIMAL PROTECTION GROUP OR GO TO YOU TUBE AND LOOK UP PUPPY MILL EDUCATION IS KEY DO NOT SUPPORT THIS CRUELTY. THIS IS A FOR PROFIT BUSINESS ONLY CHECK OUT THE OWNERS HOUSE 12442 DANIELS GATE DRIVE IN CASTLE ROCK.. BUSINESS IS BOOMING.. THE BREEDING DOGS HAVE THE POOREST OF POOR CARE THEY PAY PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR FOR THE PUPPIES FROM THESE MASS MILLS AND THE BROKER AND THEN TURN AROUND AND ASK YOU THE CONSUMER FOR THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. DID YOU KNOW THAT MOTHER DOG WHEN SHE IS NO LONGER OF VALUE IS KILLED? DROWNING, ROCK TO THE HEAD WHATEVER IS CHEAPEST IF SHE IS LUCKY SHE COULD END UP AT A RESCUE WANT TO KNOW MORE??

My husband bought a puppy for me last week from this place and the puppy is currently in intensive care. She was diagnosed with parvo, coccidia, giardia, kennel cough, and has gone into hypoglycemic shock several times. The kennel has refused to cooperate with us and said that my husband has threatened them. Jeff Fortin, the owner, thinks this situation is funny, which it obviously is not. We have spent $3000 so far and she still isn't out of the woods. If you have had a similar experience with this place please contact me immediately. We are pursuing legal action. Thank you in advance.

My co-worker is sitting behind me, wondering if the pup she bought from NWSK will live. Right now, he's at the vets in ICU, receiving IV's syringe feedings and critical care. He's been there with pneumonia since 2 days after she bought him. Getting that ill in that short a time means he was sick when she bought him. The owner hasn't spoken to her, apologized or in any way taken responsibility for selling "defective goods". I don't believe pets are "goods" but even if it's strictly a business, the seller has an obligation to provide quality for money. In any other type of store, if what you buy isn't right, you get a response.

My mom bought a Maltipoo from them less than 2 1/2 years ago and he died from liver failure. Last week a friend of ours bought a puppy and died from pneumonia and few other people my mom spoke with had puppy's that were sick and they were regretting buying from them. These dogs are unhealthy and you will end up paying more medical bills. BE AWARE!!!!!!!!!
