Her price as a working dog was $5000. Now she needs a loving companion home and her price as a pet is $1500.

Below is a link which goes to the Trifecta Training Center Page. This page targets all breed training. It is extremely important for you to start training your puppy early. If you adopt an adult dog, even one with some training, additional training will help the bonding process and teach the dog to respond to you.

If you do not get an answer to an email you have  sent, please follow up with a phone call.



If you are interested in purchasing an adult or a puppy from me or  breeder I might refer you to, please read the page I have done on "COSTS."  We breed for quality. We do not have a lot of litters.

Trifecta Foundation Story
My Credentials
A brief history & pictures of dogs and activities that formed Trifecta Boxers


Trifecta Dogs Are Home Raised

What does this mean?

It means they all have house time. They are not just in a kennel. They have a huge fenced area to exercise in. They sleep in the house. Some in their crates and some with me in the bedroom.

They are born in a quiet room in the house. They have a big exercise pen 5 x 10 in the family room for their daytime play area. Then they return to their whelping box and exercise area in the quiet room where they were born. By going back and forth between the two play areas they start learning to come at about 4 weeks. They get exposure to sights and sounds during the day.
It costs a lot of money to home raise a puppy. The health checks, proper breeding practices and early training all take enormous time and money.

My dogs are raised in a chemical free environment. Dogs absorb everything through their paws. They suck in lawn chemicals, garden fertilizers and diseases. The constant exposure to these things may be causing the lowering of the immune system. A lower immune system cannot fight disease or cancer. I believe dogs are being exposed to too many chemicals and that is why some boxers are succumbing to cancer at very young ages.

The older puppies I sell, are trained to walk proudly and sedately by your side. Walk through crowds and around other dogs without lunging or pulling on the leash or whining and barking. They know �sit� and �down� and �wait.� They are house trained. They sleep quietly in their crates at night or when you are gone. They have manners. They do not bite or nip at your clothes. They do not jump on counters. They allow you to trim their nails, clean their teeth and ears, without a fuss. They are encouraged to use their innate guard instincts to give warning barks but are trained not to be overtly aggressive. They are awesome security dogs. They know the difference between a chew toy and furniture. They have had all their shots,(rabies if over a year old) and health checks.

All dogs and puppies I place go to their new homes with a money back guarantee for a trail period. They bond easily and quickly to their new people. I do encourage further formal training to help the bonding process and to teach the puppy who is the alpha and who to respect. I am always available for questions from my clients and have saved many people from needless worries and countless veterinary expenses.



For years I have received emails from heart broken people who have lost their beloved boxers. As a breeder I have tried to pay close attention to health issues. I have been able to derive some insights to health issues. For many years I was encouraged to make these insights available to everyone. Of course, all who buy a puppy or dog from me get all this information. I try to keep informed about the newest information on health problems, as well as how to keep our boxers healthy. So click on the link below and read the information I have gathered. These are insights. Based on experience and knowledge gleaned from friends as well as my own boxers. They are not based on scientific research, as I am far from a scientist.

Jazzy has found her special place in this world and is now living with her new family in Portland.

Jazzy is a sweet lovable boxer girl. She is 13 months old and a strikingly beautiful flashy brindle. She has a soft temperament and is not hyper like a lot of boxers at this age. She is also crate trained, walks on a leash without pulling, has had some training in therapy work. She is a very quiet house dog and if she cannot be right with her person or family she just goes and finds a toy or something to keep busy with.

Letters From Jazzy

Day 1:..... "Well Mom I made it to the city. You won't believe it but they have stairs in the city. Haven't quite made an attempt yet, but the day is still young. I am currently in my new chair, of course my new Dad is in it too. His tummy makes a nice cushion though. We went for a little walk and I saw all kinds of furry little creatures scampering about. We had dinner... We had all kinds of visitors too. They all came to see me and tell me how pretty I am. K and M are going to bed pretty soon so my Dad said I can stay up and watch a movie with him. Just wanted you to know that I am doing good and you shouldn't worry because I think they really like me. I will write more when I can. Love, Jazzy"

Day 2:.... "Dear Mom, I remembered the stairs. I am the stair master! My day started off with my new lady and me waking everyone up. That was a fun treat. The day went down hill from there. I have had my face washed, M. tried to put lotion on my head, and everyone thinks I take up too much room on the couch. They tell me I have to share:( And, the worst of all is, I think M. has forgotten my name. She keeps calling me " the little toddler" I went for a short walk again today, this time around the lake. We saw ducks, squirrels, and an occasional cat. We also went accessory shopping for me today.... While I was there I made friends with the cutest little Italian Greyhound name Roscoe! Well, I better go. M's bed-time timer just went off which means I get the couch back!
Don't worry about me I am doing all the things you taught me to do. I am the perfect princess! Jazz-a-roo"

Chester is all boy. At ten months of age he is busy and happy and very active. He is a sweet dog. He is very tall and going to be a big boy. He is crate trained and walks calmly on leash. He is now living with a wonderful family in Portland.

Comments from Chester's new family

.......I especially appreciated your honest assessment of Chester�s personality and development � I know that we have a fair amount work to do during his transition to our home and after, but I feel relieved to know that I can use you as a resource.  It�s obvious in seeing you with your dogs how much you really know and love them � I want to assure you that we are committed to providing Chester with the very best home environment and all of the love that we can.  I don�t think we could have found a better dog and breeder to develop a relationship with � we feel very fortunate to have come across you and Chester.

Boxer puppies from Trifecta usually cost more than a puppy from other breeders or single home breeders. All Trifecta puppies are home raised. Although we may list more than one litter on our new puppy page,  there is only one here at Trifecta. Puppies start learning as early as the day they start eating solid foods. Puppies older than eight weeks have begun formal training.
Often times our stud dogs are used on other bitch's and we announce those litters as well as our own.  Why are our puppies more expensive? Trifecta does not produce very many litters. The focus is on quality not quantity. The breedings are carefully planned often when the bitch is very young. She is then campaigned or worked in obedience, therapy or performance, until she reaches a point in her career where it is timely for her to have puppies. After the necessary health checks and, predicated on the necessity for a new litter here at Trifecta, she is bred to the appropriate stud dog. Initially the purpose of the breedings are to obtain a new show puppy at Trifecta.

    The requirements for breeding are good health, temperament and structure.  We breed for show, performance, therapy and pet/companion dogs. There are almost always nice pet/companion puppies in every litter we have.

All prospective puppy owners are screened carefully. The puppies are guaranteed against genetic health defects. After the puppy is adopted a money back guaranteed is offered in case the family finds the dog not appropriate, within the first few days, or not what they wanted. (this has never happened) Puppies leave with a puppy packet including heath record (all puppies have at least one shot and three wormings). Also a pedigree, seven page handbook on training, puppy instructions and problem solver. Registration papers are withheld until the buyer is satisfied with the puppy.  All puppy buyers are welcome to call with questions at any time in the dogs life.

  Trifecta has been breeding for over ten years. Before that many performance dogs and champions made Trifecta home. Trifecta is not a breeding kennel. It was officially established as a kennel in 1995. Before 1995 Trifecta was home to some wonderful pet and obedience competition boxers.  It is now home and training center for conformation, performance and therapy dogs. To date Trifecta has only produced eleven litters. Three obedience titled dogs,  bred four conformation champion boxers, and made a total of ten champions.

Below are many links to informational and individual pages on the Trifecta Boxer Web page. Many have complimented on all the information so please take some time to read especially the informational pages. Especially if you are thinking of adopting a boxer.
