Diamond R Kennels was located in Belgrade, Montana until 2017 when we purchased the business. We transitioned to our permanent home in Ennis, Montana which is about 1-hour south of the fast-growing Belgrade and Bozeman in the famous Gallatin Valley. All our dogs live in pairs in large runs so they can socialize and exercise all day long. At night, they can choose to sleep inside or outside of their enclosed, insulated (heated in winter) section of the large dog barn built specifically for them. In addition, we run them on our land where they can play, train, and swim, and we also have a dog-fenced section with 4 acres and a stream to keep them entertained throughout the year.
The puppies are born in a heated, specifically designed room that includes heated floors in our dog barn, finished by our family. The barn was built with our dogs and puppies in mind, and we can have constant video and in-person observation while puppies are whelped to keep an eye on the mom and pups to ensure safety and health.
After about three to four weeks of age, puppies also have an open-air covered run to begin house-breaking early and have room to play. In the indoor whelping area, we use bedding of wood shavings to keep the pups clean and dry. All these factors are crucial to keeping puppies calm and having a faster start to training in your own home. We pride ourselves on socializing all litters with many visitors and our fantastic staff. We use vacuums and music near the pups in order to send home more confident puppies used to loud noises and people!
Appointments Required for Visitation.
