| I must say, Dream-A-Dream is what
you call "doggie heaven". There is no way you can't be happy as
a dog living there. The facility is great for all dogs, puppies included.
There is a separate room for the puppies, where the mammas can get to them
through a little doggie door. The dogs are very much cared for at all times.
The backyard at Dream-a-Dream is set up for the dachshunds-they even have
a slide for them!!!|
I am looking to buy a dog, and would definitely put Dream-a-Dream at the
top of my list of breeders. The personalities from each dog are the cutest
and you can tell each dog gets love and attention from everyone around them.
I can't wait to see the upcoming litters in hopes to find myself a little
one!!! Thanks, Stephanie
Whom it May Concern:
I have been pleased with
my purchase of a dachshund from Sherry Roger's Dream a Dream Kennels. She
has a very nice set-up for the dachshunds with a nice crate in her house
for the dachshunds when they are first born and a nice open area for them
to roam and play in when they are weaned.
Mrs. Rogers gives lots of
personal attention to the dachshunds. She truly enjoys playing and handling
the dogs. She was also very open about me seeing the set-up and the other
dachshunds. She let me spend as much time with the parents of Clifford as
I wanted and, of course, she let me spend as much time as I wanted making
a decision on the best puppy from the litter for our family.
Because I have several small
children and I wanted the puppy to be at least 8 to 9 weeks old before I
brought him home she kept Clifford with her for about a week after we made
our decision so he could get acclimated to his crate and grow a little more.
She also made sure he was up to date on his shots for me. I received a nice
binder with photos of the parents, their AKC registration numbers, Clifford's
shot records, and a good information packet on puppies. And because I was
new to the area she ecommended a veterinarian that she uses for her dachshunds.
Even as a young puppy Clifford
has become a wonderful pet for our family. Our three children really enjoy
his company and I think because of the open family environment he started
with at Mrs. Roger's place the transition to our family has been very easy
and painless for Clifford and for our family. Sincerely, Carmen Lukner|
I want to thank you so much
for the wonderful little Dachshund that we were able to bring home to our
I was very impressed with
your facility and the cleanliness. The nursery area was immaculate and spacious
and the puppies appeared to be healthy and active. We were allowed all the
time we needed to view the puppies and to make a decision as to which choice
would be ours.
And thank you so much for
the notebook provided with all the necessary information for us to properly
care for our new puppy. It is evident to us that you truly care about all
of your Dachshunds and want to see each new puppy go to the right home.
Thank you again for our new
Dachshund puppy. She is healthy, active and alert and everything we could
want in a family pet.
Sincerely, Darlene Carroll |
| My husband and I first
visited Dream-a-Dream in spring, 2004, when we were puppy shopping for my
mom. Sadly, we had just lost our own 14-year-old dog to cancer, and this
search was therapeutic for both of us. Although we were not emotionally
ready at that time for a new dog for ourselves, after talking with Sherry
and visiting her facilities, we knew that we would return when the time
came for our next puppy purchase. We stayed in touch with Sherry and visited
the web site often.
As the arrival dates of the
Christmas litters were posted on the web site, we knew one of those babies
would be ours. As the litters arrived, I visited the kennel and literally
held and loved every puppy until THE particular one touched
my heart. On December 27, Snickers joined his two sisters,
Sassie (Yorkie) and Sophie (Lab) and immediately fit right in. He is every
bit the well-bred, healthy dachshund we knew he would be personality
plus. He has totally won the hearts of every person he has encountered and
is the favorite dachshund at my vets office!
Sherry provides a clean,
healthy, up-to-date nursery and facility for the puppies and for the adult
dogs and treats each baby as her very own. As the puppies grow
and are weaned, Sherry provides the required health-care and vet visits
necessary. A to-date health record, registration papers, food, and proof
of vet visits are provided when the puppy goes to his/her new home. Additionally,
Sherry always accommodated my phone calls and visits prior to Snickers
If give the opportunity,
there is no doubt that we will return to Dream-a-Dream for another puppy
| I was very impressed
at how clean the whole place was. It was a dog kennel and yet, it didn't
smell like what I had envisioned it would have looked.
Dogs health (looks) ~ room
provided to sleep, run, play etc...- ALL Of the dogs' areas, whether sleeping
or playing area was very well kept. I didn't see dog "deposits"
everywhere which is what you normally see when there are a bunch of dogs.
Again, it was very clean and the dogs all seemed very happy.
Nursery area - Wow! is the
best description of the puppy nursery. The separate stalls for each of the
litters was very clean. The doggie doors leading out of each one that enabled
the mama dog to leave as she needed and then return was a good idea. The
building was temperature controlled which was very nice. One thing that
impressed me the most was upon entering the nursery, before handling the
newborns, we were to use sanitary wash on our hands BEFORE holding the puppies,
not after. That tells me they really care about the well being of their
Sherry Rogers is very knowledgeable
about her dogs! And that's a good thing since we knew nothing except for
that was what my daughter wanted. She took us from the very beginning of
adopting it through all the responsibilities there are in owning. She didn't
just give us all the positive things to make the sell but informed us of
the challenges of raising them as well. She was very thorough in all of
her information. We had lots of questions and she was so patient to answer
each and every one.
The notebook that Sherry
makes out on each dog is very impressive too! It states the whole family
and even has photos. Of course, when you tour the kennel, you get to meet
them first handed which to me, was a big plus! All the take home literature,
samples and health records is just like adopting a regular child...so to
me, it wasn't just a dog. She takes her dog rearing very seriously! Keep
up the good work!|
We came with lots of questions
and weren't too sure about getting a dachshund but after leaving, we knew
that was what we wanted in our home.
With our crazy schedule, Sherry was very gracious to fit us in so we could
come and view the puppies...TWICE! Sherry was very calm and complete in
our "interview" which is what it felt like. We were checking her
out and she was checking us out. Again, it felt like a regular adoption
Seeing the parents of the
puppies told us what our puppy would be like or as close as to it. All of
the dogs we saw were very well behaved which reflects on time being spent
with each one. They love where they are and it shows. You can tell that
Sherry has a good relationship with her dogs in how they respond to her.
It's truly awesome!
You did a wonderful job in
the whole process from the beginning to the day of pick up.
I didn't see anything that
I would change! Keep up the great work!
Thanks so much for sending us the new pictures of the latest litters. They
are so precious and only make me wish that I could buy another one!
I am remiss for not e-mailing you sooner and updating you on our precious
"Snickers." He is just a delight - VERY cute personality, sweet,
and loveable. In fact, as I am typing this note, he is in my lap - spoiled
to say the least. His coloring is definitely his mom's, but his profile
and mannerisms remind me so much of Rowdy. When he sits in the sun in the
backyard, he looks like Rowdy's profile that is on your web site. Although
he was the runt of his litter, I think that he will probably be around 10
pounds. At his last checkup, he weighed 8 lbs., and my vet thinks that he
will gain another pound or two. I had hoped that he would stay small, but
needless to say, we love him every bit as much as we anticipated.
He and Sophie, our 90 lb. black lab, are very good buddies. There are times
when he pesters her to death, but she is very patient with him, and they
are so good for each other. As anticipated, Sassie, my Yorkie, is her usual
snobby self. She accepts him on her terms only, but that doesn't stop Snickers.
She may yell and growl at him, but he never gives up trying to charm her!
I think that deep down, he is the typical younger brother - just loves to
Everyone at my vet's office is in love with Snickers, and I never fail to
tell people where we bought him. It's obvious that he is from "good
Good luck with the new babies. If I had the money and the facilities, I
would buy ALL of them!
Thanks for being good at what you do.
| We would like to take
a minute and thank you for our positive experience at Dream-A-Dream. We
were immediately impressed upon our arrival to your facility, not only did
it offer a spacious place for the dogs to play and sleep, but it was gleaming
with happy, healthy doxies!. We loved that the puppies had their own climate
controlled nursery which kept them safe and comfortable. All of the dogs
and puppies were very friendly, and people oriented, which made it obvious
to us that they received a lot human interaction and love. We are thankful
for all the time we were able to spend with the dogs, and appreciate the
knowledge of the breed you shared with us. -Karen Moody|
