Our Home in Ennis, Montana

Diamond R Kennels was located in Belgrade, Montana until 2017. 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 indoor/outdoor pens so they are free to enjoy the sun during the day or our specially built indoor pens when hot or cold.  In addition, we run them on our land where they can play, train, and swim in our creeks on 6 acres to keep them entertained throughout the year.


The puppies are in a heated, specifically designed room that includes heated floors in our dog 'barn-dominium' built by us. The barn was built with our dogs and puppies in mind, and we can have constant video and in-person observation while puppies are on the property 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 as they are weaned. All these factors are crucial to keeping puppies calm and starting training faster 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 to send home more confident puppies used to loud noises and people! 

Visits are encouraged, but we do require appointments for visitation.

NO visitations to the property when pups are less than three weeks old so mom, pups (and we!) can catch up on sleep.
