About Noah’s Bark Puppies
As a young teen longing for a furry companion, Noah would often browse the “D” encyclopedia searching for the best-looking dogs. Almost immediately, the gorgeous Red Irish Setter caught his eye. He dreamed of one day having his very own beauty of a best friend.
Zoula, (zoo-la) a Purebred Yellow Labrador came first. In February of 2012 when Zane had a litter of 8 puppies, Zoula (and Noah’s Bark) was born. After raising, and connecting Zoula’s eight puppies to beautiful homes, Noah knew he had a passion for raising healthy puppies. The new puppy owners gave raving reviews. Noah’s dream of owning a Red Irish Setter came true when he found Cherry in the hills of Perry County, PA. Cherry, although no longer with us, lives on through our Irishdoodle litters.
In the Summer of 2018, Noah’s sister and her husband, Melissa and Ervin Stoltzfus and their five young children decided to carry on the Noah’s Bark legacy of raising new best friends.
About the Stoltzfus Family
We are a family of seven and love to deeply breathe the country air. Our favorite seasons are when we have puppies, which only happens a few times a year. We play with and love on your new puppy on a daily basis. Our children work alongside us in the family business, learning how to raise and nurture dogs.
Ervin and Melissa Stoltzfus were both born and raised in Lancaster County. They have childhood memories of dogs and puppies and want to pass that bond on to their children and families across the United States.
Ervin and Melissa have five young children ages 6-14 who are a daily part of the responsibilities and joys of caring for dogs. Our children love playing with the puppies during their first eight weeks of life with us and socialize them well.
About Your Puppies Care
When you buy a puppy from us, you get a dog who loves people and human interaction. Another one of our passions is wellness education, and we carry that passion through to our pets. We use only a non-toxic animal wash on our dogs and puppies. Mamas get regular prenatal vitamins through conception, pregnancy, and nursing.
We also use essential oils with on our dogs. Primarily through diffusing for a pleasant scent but also in a special rollerball blend we make and send home with our puppies to give them a litter scent while transitioning to their new home.
Dogs are very keen on smell and by rolling the essential oil blend over your hands and then petting the coat of your dog, they will find the smell pleasant and comforting, reminding them of home.
