Diamond R Kennels was located in our hometown of Belgrade, Montana but transitioned to our permanent home in Ennis, Montana in March of 2019. All our dogs live in pairs in large runs so they can socialize and exercise all day. They have large trees, shade, and water to keep cool in the summer as well as a large greenhouse and indoor kennels in the winter. We run them on 30 acres where they can play and train.
The puppies are whelped by our office with a heated room just for puppies with 4 whelping areas. We have built this barn specifically with dogs in mind, and stay there while puppies are whelped to keep an eye on the mom and pups. We keep everything very clean, and have heated floors to ensure pups are always warm and healthy.
After about three weeks of age, puppies also have an open air run so they can begin house-breaking early and have room to play. In the indoor whelping pens, we use a bedding of dry sawdust and the pups share a kennel to sleep in to begin crate training. All these factors are key to keep puppies calm, and a faster start to training in your own home. We pride ourselves in socializing all litters with visitors and our 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! This is our private home, and is gated.
