The CKC Preferred Breeders Program is an extraordinary member service developed exclusively for CKC Breeders and kennel owners. The Preferred Breeders Program combines practical guidelines with high breeding standards to support the proper development and enhancement of dog breeds. The CKC Preferred Breeders Program provides support and resources to CKC breeders to aid in the establishment of a superior breeding program. CKC Preferred Breeders are provided with a wealth of canine education and training to encourage a lasting, supportive relationship with new puppy owners, in addition to establishing healthy, life-long canine companionship.
THE CONTINENTAL KENNEL CLUB BREEDER CODE OF ETHICS OUTLINES THE ETHICAL BREEDING PRACTICES, HEALTH AND GENETIC GUIDELINES, AND PUPPY PLACEMENT PRACTICES FOR CKC BREEDERS.
Provide clean, adequate, safe housing and run areas specific to the nature and exercise requirements for the breed.
Research the breed before breeding. Know the standard and only breed dogs that show proper breed type and temperament. Consider the strengths and weaknesses of each potential pairing. Always breed to better the breed.
Perform all customary health tests for your breed prior to breeding, and disclose all results to possible puppy buyers. If health tests were not performed, disclose that fact to any possible puppy buyers.
Ensure that all breeding dogs are positively identifiable. Microchips, DNA, photo registration, and tattoos are all acceptable forms of identification.
Breed dogs that are in good health, temperamentally sound, and free from genetic faults.
Obtain a signed stud dog contract prior to breeding. The stud contract should, at minimum, designate the number of ties that will be allowed, designate the amount of time between ties, designate the stud fee or pick of the litter, address how a single puppy litter will be handled, and address what each party will do if no puppies are yielded.
Only breed dogs that are physically and mentally mature enough to breed, and do not continue to breed any male or female that is unfit for breeding.
Make every effort possible to ensure that puppies are in good health and free from genetic defects at the time of sale.
Review each prospective buyer carefully and make every effort to ensure that each puppy is placed in a home that is in the best interests of the new owner and the puppy.
Help to educate puppy buyers about the breed and what is required in terms of exercise, nutrition, training, and socialization.
Make both parent dogs available for viewing to potential puppy buyers, along with proper registration papers of the parents.
Provide each new puppy owner with the proper paperwork to register the new puppy at the time the puppy leaves the breeder’s premises. This should include, at a minimum: registration form for the puppy, health and shot information, and a signed contract.
Include in each signed puppy contract a minimum of: a return policy and time limit, explanation of health guarantee and time limit, and spay/neuter requirements, if any.
Any advertising, whether oral or written, shall be factual, not misleading, and not designed to attract undesirable buyers or to encourage the raising of dogs for any undesirable reason.
Meet The Robinsons!
We are small, in-home hobby breeders where our dogs are family and live like royalty. We have some puppies that are AKC registered and some that are CKC (Continental). We also raise our puppies using the Puppy Culture Program, which creates a well-rounded puppy that is used to everyday life. Our puppies tend to be quite intelligent with great temperaments and lovely personalities. We got into breeding after owning two yorkies and upon learning more about the Yorkshire Terrier breed itself, just falling completely in love with these dogs and their history. Our first litter was scary, heartbreaking, and yet so rewarding. We almost gave up then, but loved having babies around the house and sharing the love of a yorkie with those around us. We value quality and overall health in our dogs and puppies much more than we value trying to profit from them. Know that adopting one of our precious babies will provide you with a healthy, happy and spoiled baby as well as a life-long relationship.
Why Choose Us?
Our prices are $1,800+ for a CKC registered puppy with limited registration (no breeding rights) and $2,000+ for an AKC registered puppy with limited registration (no breeding rights). These are very fair prices for the quality you will receive and other aspects that go into our puppies.
We do not purposely breed for tiny babies that are referred to as "Teacups" due to the greater health and safety risks. Our puppies range between 5 and 10 lbs full grown which is a nice healthy weight for them as well as families with young children.
Every decision we make is based in research, from treatment of parents before, during and after breeding all the way down to the food and treats that they eat. We have researched and studied Whelping and raising puppies as well as the actual history of the Yorkie for years. Almost every day is spent reading, interacting and learning more from scientific journals, vets and other breeders from all over the world. This also goes into the dogs we select for breeding. We are very picky as far as the looks, genetics and breeding practices of the puppies and breeders we choose to purchase a puppy from for breeding
All of our dogs are family first and breeding is based on their health and how well they handle the entire process. The dogs have their own 20ft x 11ft room inside our home and have access to the whole house when we are home. We also have a decent size fenced in yard for them to play and run around. Mom and puppies are separated from everyone else for at least the first three weeks. We slowly introduce the other dogs to puppies when Mom is comfortable with doing so. We have cameras in their room and over puppy areas so we are able to keep an eye on them even when we aren't home. They have lots of toys, a 4 gallon filtered water bowl, a large pet bed and their own tv in their room. Each older dog has their own crate with bed and blanket (unless crate training) for them to freely rest in through the day and sleep in at night. We are also currently repurposing our dining room into a dedicated puppy room!
We post lots of pictures and videos of puppies on our Facebook page! Each puppy parent receives their own pictures and weekly updates. Local families have access to make appointments for visitations once puppies are 6wks old (highly encouraged!). All families have access to make appointments for video chatting (FaceTime, Duo, Skype, Facebook Messenger)! It is great to expose puppy to your voice and scent as often as possible as this helps them become familiar with you and makes their transition smoother. Due to the exposure of pathogens that can harm their sensitive immune systems, we ask that visitors are limited to 2 family members at a time and that shoes be removed at the door and hands washed before handling puppies
All of our breeding dogs have been DNA health tested using Embark Vet and tested clear for the most common diseases that affect yorkies which were recommended to be tested for by the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America. They also tested clear for over 280 other genetic conditions. There were two that came back as carriers/at risk for two different diseases, but this poses no risk to puppies. Feel free to ask for more information in regards to this. Their Eyes and Hearts have also been checked by a veterinary cardiologist and ophthalmologist in accordance to OFA genetic/hereditary health testing. Results available upon request.
Our puppies are raised with Puppy Culture. This specialized program based in research starts when puppies are 3 days old and goes until they are 12 weeks old. It focuses on Biosensor skills (Early Neurological Stimulation), active enrichment protocols, and most importantly, socialization.
Puppies come home with a 1 year health guarantee, first 3 sets of shots (you'll only be responsible for last set of shots-distemper combo and rabies), dewormed on a regular schedule, microchipped and registered to us as primary owners and new family as secondary in accordance with our return policy in our contract, already AKC registered (if applies) or CKC puppy application, and cleared by our vet. They also will have a 4lb bag of high quality food, treats, toy, rubber bands and bow for girls, slicker brush, blanket with mom and littermates scent, and breeder support for any questions, concerns and training tips. AKC registered puppies also come with 30 days free pet insurance. Local buyers also receive free puppy sitting, free baths and $15 grooming! Sometimes we may throw extra things in or change up the puppy packs, but generally these items are always included.
All of our puppies are sold on a spay/neuter contract to ensure they will not be bred irresponsibly and add to the overpopulation of pets in rescues/shelters. We also want to protect our breeding lines and reputations that we have been working hard to achieve. We recommend males be neutered at 6 months and girls after their first heat cycle. There are many health benefits to having these surgeries done. You will receive proof of AKC registration at pickup/delivery, but documentation will not be given to you until proof of spay/neuter is received.
Due to the increased possibility of having inbred litters, we do not feel comfortable placing siblings of the opposite sex in a home prior to one or both being fixed. This could be a case by case scenario, so if you are interested please speak to us about it. Our main concern will always be the health and safety of our puppies and those they may produce.
We do accept different forms of payment. Paypal may be used for the deposit. Balance must be paid by Cash, Walmart 2 Walmart, Venmo, Zelle, or Cash App. We allow you to pay at your convenience once deposit is placed. Puppies full purchase price (and travel fee if being delivered) must be paid in full at 10wks old. This is to ensure traveling expenses are taken care of and puppy packages and vet appointments are complete. Please message for more information!
About the Yorkshire Terrier
This information and more can be found on the American Kennel Club's website
The Yorkshire Terrier is a compact, toy-size terrier of no more than seven pounds whose crowning glory is a floor-length, silky coat of steel blue and a rich golden tan.
Don’t let the Yorkie’s daintiness fool you. Tenacious, feisty, brave, and sometimes bossy, the Yorkie exhibits all the traits of a true terrier. Often named the most popular dog breed in various American cities, Yorkies pack lots of big-town attitude into a small but self-important package. They are favorites of urbanites the world over.
Yorkies are long-lived and hypoallergenic (the coat is more like human hair than animal fur), and they make fine little watchdogs. This is a true “personality breed,” providing years of laughs, love, and close companionship.
The Yorkshire Terrier’s coat is very similar to human hair and should be treated accordingly. If the coat is kept long, it needs to be brushed daily. To avoid eye irritation, the hair on the upper part of the head should be trimmed short or pulled up into a topknot. The Yorkie will need a bath every week or so. Check the ears weekly for any debris or signs of infection. The breed’s national parent club, the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America, provides detailed grooming and bathing instructions on its website.
Even small dogs require exercise to stay healthy, both mentally and physically. Yorkies will benefit from both moderate exercise, such as walks with their owner at a steady pace, as well as occasional short bursts of activity, such as chasing after a tennis ball in the backyard. A short walk twice a day will likely be enough for your Yorkie to see new scenery and burn off energy. Participating in dog sports such as obedience or agility also will provide beneficial activity to keep him healthy, while challenging his mind as well.
Yorkies love their owners, and are very intelligent and eager to please. Offering effusive praise and treats for good behavior will work far better with the Yorkie than harsh corrections. Starting from an early age, the Yorkie should be socialized to strange situations, people, and other dogs. Take him into new situations slowly, and always in a calm and happy atmosphere. These should be positive experiences. Despite their small size, Yorkies can participate in and excel at canine activities such as rally, agility and obedience, and many Yorkies serve with their human partners in roles such as therapy work.
Yorkshire Terriers are generally healthy dogs, and responsible breeders screen their stock for health conditions such as eye anomalies and luxating patella, a dislocated kneecap once called a “trick knee” in humans. To help avoid the latter, care should be taken to limit the Yorkie’s jumping height, especially as a puppy.
