Welcome to the virtual home of Pickwick Pugs, dedicated to the pug breed since 1990. Our physical home is located in Alabama, USA where we live with a grumble of delightful pugs young and old.
We are proud members of The Pug Dog Club of America. As preservation breeders, we only include pugs in our breeding program who are healthy, exemplary representatives of the breed standard.
Pickwick Pugs is home to many AKC champions and grand champions and many even hold titles in rally obedience, tricks, canine good citizenship, and more.
We believe strongly in the importance of health screening and include the recommended health tests in accordance with the Pug Dog Club of America plus additional testing which is optional such as spine, heart, and others.
All Pickwick Pug puppies are raised, trained, and extensively socialized using Puppy Culture protocols, and positive clicker training techniques we have learned over the years through our studies with such legends as Ian Dunbar, Karen Pryor, Victoria Stillwell, and other amazing behaviorists, vets, and trainers. Pickwick Pug puppies are very often the "star students" of their Puppy Kindergarten classes!
In addition to our work with show pugs and breed preservation, we are also involved in rescue & foster work with Furever Home Rescue and other organizations. Many of our pugs (The Painting Pugcassos) also raise money for animal rescue through the sale of their paintings and their performance act, "Pugiano" .... pugs who play the piano, drums, paint, and love to entertain!
Even our 12-week-old Pickwick Puppies paint and canvas painting prior to gotcha day which is included in their puppy basket.
Every puppy we breed is registered with the American Kennel Club (paid for by Pickwick Pugs), and microchipped with AKC Reunite, and regularly examined and vaccinated by our amazing board certified veterinarians.
Pickwick pugs live all over, from Mexico, California, Colorado, to New York, Virginia, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Michigan, South Carolina, and a handful live in Alabama. Lil' Riccie has even traveled all over with the world with his blues artist parents. Here he is in Madrid, Spain . . .
And here he is in Switzerland . . .
Myles lives in Long Island and has already earned several titles after his name!
Moose and Bear live in Manhattan . . .
Gus the Singleton lives in South Carolina . . .
Some are training to become, or have been certified to be therapy dogs!
Some are even training to be agility dogs and compete in fun sports like scent work and rally obedience. Others even know how to swim!
We love our Pickwick human families so much and savor every update, photo, video. We are truly blessed to have found such amazing homes for our pups. Blessings to all our extended family and we hope you will always know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
