Welcome to Praygein Wrinkles N Skin,
We're Terry & Lisa Woodyard, Located in South Eastern Iowa. We specialize in HOME RAISED Shar Pei & Miniature Schnauzers...
We choose to keep our breeding program small and manageable so that we have the peace of mind that ALL are happy, healthy, and receive the attention they deserve, And we can pass the same peace of mind on to you with over 14 years of breeding experience and confidence. All of our adults live in our home as part of the family, Puppies are our passion NOT our job. We are NOT a kennel, There are NO outside buildings or dog runs on our property...We do how ever use proper containment when necessary so that everybody has their own private place to go.
If you choose to purchase a "Praygein" puppy.. Your new puppy will go from our home to yours with a written health guarantee, first shots, well socialized with other dogs, teens , and young children, and every day household noise. We do not sell to brokers or pet shops. ALL of our "pet"(not intended for breeding) puppies are sold on a spay and neuter contract.
ONE OF THE FIRST QUESTIONS I'M OFTEN ASKED IS "HOW DO SHAR PEI DO WITH CHILDREN?" ............
WELL THEY ALWAYS SAY A PHOTO IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS!! THE BOYS IN THE PHOTO ARE OUR TWIN GRANDSONS. THEY LIVE WITH US, AS YOU CAN SEE BY THEIR FACES THEY LOVE UMPA, AND UMPA LOVES THEM AS DO ALL OF OUR PEI ADULTS. THE GATE WAS NOT TO KEEP THE DOG FROM GETTING TO THE BOYS IT WAS PUT UP TO KEEP THE BOYS OUT OF THE KITCHEN. SO UMPA WENT TO THE GATE SO THE BOYS COULD REACH HER. THE BOYS ARE A BIT OLDER NOW .., NOT ONLY DO THEY PET THE DOGS THEY GET IN BED WITH THEM,CLIMB & LAY ON TOP OF THEM,AND THEY'VE BEEN KNOWN TO PLAY IN THE FOOD & WATER BOWLS A TIME OR TWO.
WITH THAT SAID... PLEASE KNOW I'M NOT SAYING THAT EVERY SHAR PEI IS THIS TRUSTWORTHY. THIS IS WHERE PROPER BREEDING, AND SOCIALIZATION COMES IN .SO PICK YOUR BREEDER WISELY AND THE OUT COME WILL BE MANY YEARS OF GOOD HEALTH,HAPPINESS, & FRIENDSHIP....
Terry & I (Lisa) Thanks for visiting us on line. I'm the person behind all e-mails and phone calls when you contact us with questions about our Pei babies....I enjoy talking about our Shar Pei , I dont believe there is any such thing as a dumb question so feel free to ask away....I look forward to chatting with you!!
Here's what our puppies are doing on a daily basis once he/she gets up on their feet until they get to go home with you!! The puppy in the photo is 4 weeks old and is beginning to learn early social/play skills with humans.....and what better age than a toddler.....both have to be taught to play nice :) Under my close supervision Kaleb and his twin Karson are allowed to play with the puppies each day for short amounts of time.... The boys and puppies LOVE it!! We are firm believers that a happy, well mannered Shar Pei is a socialized one!!
An example of how our puppies are comfortable around children at just a few weeks old...
Our family" paves " the road for your new puppy to be able to adapt smoothly to everyday life situations, all you have to do is "pick up" where we leave off....HOME RAISED does make a difference!
Terry & "Baby" on our way home from Kansas...June 2012
Paige & Ryan...NO there's not always this much brother & sisterly love going on LOL
Paige works as a CNA & CMA and plans to become a RN in the future.
Ryan is a freshman in high school (2012). Both could help a mama Pei deliver puppies if needed!
"Umpa" is our heart... She retired from being a Mom after giving birth to one litter of five. She was a good Mom but just prefers being our spoild princess!
"Phoebe" She was my best friend for many years...
She passed away in April of 2014 at 15 years old...
I think of her often & miss her daily...
Rest in peace my dear friend!
