Welcome to Motley Acres Farm! My name is Barbara Lockwood and my husband Billy Ferris and we have lived on the farm sense August 15, 1990. I opened my kennel in 2009 after leaving the wonderful world of retail management. We are located in New Bethlehem, PA. One & a half hours north of Pittsburgh, two hours south of Erie & one hour east of Ohio, just off Interstate 80. We raised and showed horses and ponies for several years and our deep love for dogs helped us to make the decision to turn the stables into a kennel. We started out breeding Golden Retrievers then brought in the Irish Setters.
October of 2015 we bought one nice male French Bulldog then 2016 we bought a couple female French Bulldogs. These French Bulldogs are excellent for apartment living and also great in the cities. These dogs are very good with children and other family pets. If you have other pets they will be just fine. They all joined our family because of their sweet temperament, cute as can be look & because I have several families wanting them.
We no longer breed Golden Retriever's. As much as I love them, they have too many health issues.
The stables were completely overhauled to make the best kennel for our dogs. The entire floor is heated for the comfort of every dog, puppy and visitor. All of our dogs are home raised with access to large outdoor exercise areas. Inside areas measure 10 x 10 and larger. Above all else, quality, healthy puppies is what we strive for. Many of our dogs have been trained on bird hunting and shown excellent ability in doing so. Many of our dogs are also bred for show quality and have excelled in the show ring, along with therapy and service dogs.
Bloodline, proper nutrition, exercise and socialization are the focus points of our breeding program. Our dogs are fed a top grade premium dog food are given everyday to every dog and puppy. Expecting mothers are always placed in their own large pen under cameras so we can watch them when we're in the house.
We have different litters of puppies throughout the year and our indoor heated kennel offers the customer and our dogs and puppies a comfortable environment for selecting a puppy in the winter months. During the hot summers our kennels are air conditioned for the up-most comfort of our dogs and clients.
Puppies are kept with their mother full time until the age of four and a half weeks. They start eating pawTree foods and supplements at three weeks and start potty training as well. The puppies receive ample amounts of human interaction as well as play time with other puppies. Between five and eight weeks of age, the puppies are checked by a veterinarian, weighed and given their initial vaccinations. At eight weeks of age, the puppies are ready to go home! Each puppy comes with the following; AKC application for registration, micro-chipped, a one year health guarantee, thirty days of free pet insurance, vaccination report, and vet check report. Our main goal is raising healthy puppies and dogs with great temperaments, and to assure they land in loving homes.
Shipping is available by air from Pittsburgh and ground shipping is offered as well. Motley Acres Farm is a licensed kennel in the state of Pennsylvania. The kennel is state inspected a minimum of twice a year for cleanliness and inspection of veterinary records to ensure that each dog has received the very best of care. PA Licensed K2 8953 sense 2013.
