What we will provide to you and your home

Being a small breeder it is our goal to set you and your puppy up for success.  Our baby animals are far more than a business to us - they’re family. We breed responsibly and pay special attention to minimizing the known hereditary diseases by having all our parent animals health tested by a certified vet.     


Having worked and volunteered in shelters we have see too many dogs, especially large dogs being surrendered due to behavior issues.  We want to make the transition from our home to yours a smooth one.  Therefore we will endeavor to have your puppies receive a great start to their life.  Our program “brilliant beginnings”  provides stimulation and introduces new and challenging situations for the puppies so when they are ready to go to their new homes their “gas tanks” are full of experiences, and therefore they are confident and ready to meet the world. In addition, we will log sounds an experiences on our perfect puppy starter checklist so that you have a record of what your little ones have been up to.  We really do want your puppy to have the best start in this big world.


To ensure the best start in life we will:

  • Ensure your puppies are people and pet socialized and puppies will have a good grasp of litter training but will have also begun house training and at the age of five weeks.

  • The puppies will also start basic obedience command training (sit, lay etc.)which will be conducted by a certified Canine Behavior, Handling Skills Instructor (CPDT-KA under the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers).  

  • Expose your puppy to car rides, nail trimmings, baths, collars and leashes, all those first step "scary" things, so when your puppy goes home with you he/she has already been exposed to most situations.

  • Provide continued telephone/skype/facetime support regarding training.

  • Provide dental health care tips by a Veterinarian certified (Well Animal Institute Colorado) Dental practitioner and 20+ year Dental hygienist.  

We want to do more than just provide you with a beautiful pup.  We want to ensure that you and your puppy have a wonderful start to the many years that you will have together, as well as provide support to you in your journey.

Puppies will go home with a blanket, toy, collar, leash and a  bag of the puppy food they have been started on.

All puppies will be sold as Canadian Kennel Club Registered puppies and with a non-breeding contract, these are to be family, companion or support dogs.


​Parents and/or the puppies will have had DNA testing and be clear/Negative of genetic disorders common to French Bulldogs. 

(Our guarantee is limited to the development of any serious, life threatening genetic defects within one year.)

We will honour our Guarantee to all puppy families.

We will:​

  • Do everything we need to do to make your puppy healthy and your family happy! If a puppy goes home and is not perfect, we will work with you to determine an outcome that suits you, your family and the puppy.

  • Ensure the puppies have a wellness exam, first vaccinations, de-worming and micro-chipped at the Sunset Ridge Veterinary Clinic.  

PLEASE NOTE: your puppy is not fully vaccinated until all subsequent vaccinations are given. Please refrain from taking the puppy in public places where other animals have been, until the puppy has all vaccinations.  We will provide Veterinary information packages with each puppy.

We would like to share some pictures and words from the wonderful families where our pups have found homes




New to the world of Frenchies, Nugget has made us fall in love with the loving nature of this special breed. The owners of Spirit Acres took the time with us to educate us on the breed and continue to be available whenever we need advice. We are so lucky that Nugget has the gently nature of her mother Haley and began her life in such a caring family home. Nugget brings us laughter and love everyday... and of course her bone!

We got our first French Bulldog (Franklin) from Tracy and Lance. They were very inviting and really made Franklins transition to our family easy! You can tell they really care about where there pups end up! Franklin is such a healthy boy and we love him so much Hopefully one day soon we can expand our Family again and surely Tracy and Lance will be involved again. Thank you sooo much! Adam and Eva



We have now purchased two Frenchies from Lance and Tracy – big sister Olive and her little brother Gus. We had always admired French Bulldogs from afar, yet, we had concerns about the many breeders who don't adhere to responsible breeding practices. Any concerns were quickly set aside once we researched Spirit Acres and saw their obvious care for their dogs, along with their thorough genetic testing to ensure puppies' health. Our Olive has since grown into a gorgeous lady, and Gus is quickly maturing into quite a handsome little man. Each receives compliments everywhere they go, and we can’t imagine our lives without them! Had we room for any more Frenchies, we wouldn’t hesitate to adopt from Spirit Acres again.
