Team Kennels, since 1999.

 

Welcome to Team Kennels.  We live in Polk County, NC & specialize in raising Pekingese and Peke-a-Poos. The Pekingese & Poodle cross are a hybrid called Peke-a-poos or Peek-a-poos (Peekapoos). They are hypo-allergenic & low shedding, therefore great for people with allergies or asthma! Just ask my husband! In the past we raised Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, which are wonderful dogs, and occasionally we will have a litter of Cavapoos.


All of our puppies are raised
inside our home & are well loved & played with before coming to their forever home with you.  Each puppy sees our vet before ever leaving us.  Our puppies will have had shots appropriate to their age and been dewormed several times.  We offer a microchip, done at the Vet, for $45, (so you will hopefully never have to feel the loss of your dog).  Each of these services are performed by my vet, not by me!  We also provide you with a 6 month guarantee on genetic health issues.  We start potty training on puppy pads at 3 weeks old.  Each puppy will go home with a puppy package filled with Iams puppy food, puppy pads, toys, treats, chew bones and a blanket that smells like Mommy!  We want the transition from its birth home to its forever home to be easy for you and for the puppy!   

We hope you find our site fun and full of love.  We love all our dogs & they receive the best of care, including monthly doses of First Shield Trio and Interceptor.  There are NO corners cut at Team Kennels.  It shows in the way we raise our dogs, and in the way we raise your dog in the short time it is with us. If you ever have any questions, we are there for YOU!  Please view our pages to see all our moms, dads, and rescues we have been proud to call our Family over the past 14 years.  Also visit the Nursery to see puppies we have available now.  Our Peke-a-poo, Pekingese, Poodle, Cavalier and Designer Dog pages will show you some of the quality dogs that we have found families for.

This is where your baby will be raised before coming to live in its forever home with you!

     Please note, that as a potential buyer, you will have 2 days to provide a deposit or payment in full for the dog you are wanting, or it will be available for other families to adopt.  We can no longer hold a puppy longer than 2 days because you have told us by phone or email that you want it.  Deposits are also nonrefundable. I hope you understand our position, and trust that Team Kennels will always have the dog's interest at heart first!

Team Kennels  will provide you with a lengthy brochure addressing common puppy problems.  One of the most dangerous and most avoidable is hypoglycemia.  Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is the most common disorder of metabolism seen in small, young puppies.  Puppies are at a greater risk to develop hypoglycemia than adult dogs because puppies have a smaller liver, less muscle and a larger brain in proportion to the size of their body and therefore cannot store very much sugar in their muscles and liver for later use.  Very young puppies cannot tolerate more than a few hours of going without food. Diarrea and vomiting in tiny puppies can cause hypoglycemia.

COMMON SIGNS The common signs of hypoglycemia are: weakness, dizziness, confusion, fainting and seizures (convulsions).  These problems are mostly likely to be seen first thing in the morning, after the puppy has gone without food all night, after a long period of playing, after a long, stressful car ride or a visit to your veterinarian.

PREVENTION Feed several meals a day consisting of high calorie, high fat and high protein puppy food.  This should include a middle of the night feeding in tiny, toy puppies.  Dry food is generally best for puppies, but small puppies may prefer canned food.  If the puppy is not eating, try offering canned food.  Puppies less than 3 pounds should be feed four (4) to five (5) times daily.  Don’t subject a tiny puppy to additional stress.  Limit playtimes to ten – fifteen (10 – 15) minutes.  Tiny puppies may not travel well and should be kept home as much as possible.  Before a play session and an hour before a car ride or veterinarian visit, feed a small meal or give an inch or two (2) of Nutrical paste.

EMERGENCY TREATMENT At the first sign of weakness or loss of coordination, give the puppy a teaspoon or so of KARO SYRUP or NUTRICAL.  Put this on the puppy's tongue so it will dissolve or have the puppy swallow if it is alert enough.  You should see the puppy return to normal within a few minutes.  Try this again, if there is no improvement; CONTACT A VETERINARIAN immediately.

 Toy breed puppies may require several feedings a day, including night time feedings, and should not be left alone for more than two-three (2-3) hours.

  • No refunds will be given for hypoglycemia.
