SanDot's is not a commercial kennel. We DO NOT sell dogs. Our goal is a committment to the Papillon breed. We do not anticpate breeding in the near future. Our committment to our dogs is lifelong, rather they are show quality or pet.
It is unlikely you will find an adult papillon available through us as we have raised and loved each dog in our home and when they have finished their show career they are still a member of our family.
SanDot's is proud of each of our dogs. What we look for in a papillon to show is a sound dog with excellent fringe and good quality coat. We look for dogs with good conformation but we will not sacrifice "type" for structure. A papillon that does not look like a papillon isn't one.
Our dogs are from European lines. One wonderful exception we found in the US. Regardless of their origination all of our dogs boast strong championship lines.
We show our dogs because we enjoy the entirety of the sport. We take pride in the grooming and care given to our "babies". We watch their diets and it shows in their coats and personality. Our training efforts have created an enormous bond between our dogs and us - for this reason - our dogs that do not show still participate in show training.
All of our dogs live in our house, travel to shows and vacation with us.
