We have been very happy with our baby boy Basset that we got from Elite Basset Hounds. We named him Boomer and he is the love of our family and fills us with much joy. I was on the pre-order list for about 6 months before I got him. Customer service was excellent and they lived up to the hype. Now my relatives want a new puppy!

Our puppy arrived from the airport clean and wagging his tail. Received all his health papers on time. Other than Leo being a stubborn dog at training he is a perfect dog. Thanks, Elite, our family, choose the right kennel.

I am very thankful for doing business with Elite Basset Hounds. My Bella died last year ago from getting hit by a car. She was only 2 years old and Elite was there to make it easier for us. They honored their warranty and I received my new puppy a few months ago. I could not be happier now that I have a new bundle of joy and my kids are no longer sad. I would recommend Elite.
