About Puppy Connection
Welcome to Puppy Connection!
We help potential puppy or dog buyers connect with trusted breeders to help them find their ideal dog.
At Puppy Connection, we do our best to make sure all of our puppies come from reputable breeders who follow guidelines that protect the health and safety of their puppies. When buying a puppy from a breeder listed on Puppy Connection, you can have confidence that your puppy will be coming from a good home with a GREAT start!
We provide a guarantee that we inspect each breeder’s application, as well as other supporting documentation, thoroughly before they are allowed to post on the site.
While searching for their new furry friend, buyers are able to connect with breeders, trainers and puppy experts who will help you find your new puppy and adjust to your new life together.
After finding the perfect addition for your family, arranging your puppy’s travel, finding a trainer, and enrolling in a class, we have another bonus for you. Consider this your one stop shop and get ready for arrival day, with the shopping page we put together with everything you need for your new family friend. It offers food, supplies, and much more - which means you can be sure you’re doing everything you can to have a happy healthy puppy and start the bonding process from day one. As an Amazon Associate we earn a small commission from qualifying purchases at no extra cost to you. We only recommend products that we personally would use with our own dogs. The small commission we earn helps to keep this site free, so that we can keep helping pet owners take the guesswork out of buying a puppy. Thank you for your support!
Please note puppies do still sometimes acquire natural illnesses and we do not guarantee health results. Health guarantees should come from the breeder and their contract, not this website.
A bit about Linda Cree, RN, CPT & owner of BFF Dog Training.……
Linda is a veteran of the United States Air Force. After her children were born, she left the Military and operated a home daycare. When her children went to school she returned to school to become an RN. During the 6 years she worked as an RN, she started boarding and training dogs for friends and family, and realized that her nursing career was getting in the way of
her busy dog business. She decided she had to pick one or the other, and knew that her heart was with the dogs. Linda put her nursing career on the back burner and started BFF Dog Training (Best Furry Friends Dog Training).
In 2010, Linda attended the prestigious National K9 Learning Center in Columbus, Ohio and earned their Certified Professional Trainer Certification (CPT). Two years after starting BFF, Lily Grace, owner, of the National Institute of Diabetic Alert Dogs (NIDAD) called to see if Linda was interested in training Diabetic Alert Service Dogs (DADs as they are now known). After doing some research, Linda realized that this would be a great way to help others, (which is why she went into Nursing), and that she could combine her love of nursing and love of dog training to have the best of both worlds! Linda, soon increased to her dog breeding program (that she started in 2007) due to having trouble finding healthy dogs without behavior issues to be trained as service dogs.
Linda also began teaching other Dog Trainers to train DAD’s, and then decided to write a booklet and DVD kit, to help individuals train their own dogs at home.
In 2019, Linda noted over the years that not many breeders were not breeding healthy well adjusted dogs. Puppy buyers were having trouble finding healthy well adjusted puppies and many were overwhelmed when they brought their new puppies home. She has also noticed many people turning to social media for help only to receive wrong advice. So she created this website to help make the transition smother for families and puppies.
