Due to recurring problems with email please call to talk to Terry, 970-568-7585. Sometimes it takes a day or two — or three — to get back to people who call me. I apologize for this. When people call and leave a message for me to call them back I ALWAYS call back. However, when I do, I give the caller the time that they need instead of the time that I have. This means that frequently, because I spend so much time on the phone answering questions and giving information in order to help people choose the right puppy or the right parents for a puppy that I may only be able to call one or two people back in a day. And I typically get over twenty phone calls and emails everyday that need my attention. If you find that I have not responded to a phone call or email within 48 hours contact me again. I may have a list of twenty people to call back and the squeaky wheel gets the grease. So — do not hesitate to call back if you haven’t heard from me. It’s okay. You’re not pestering me. I KNOW it can be hard to reach me. Feeding, cleaning, vaccinating, de-worming, puppy laundry, birthing litters, grooming and training the puppies comes FIRST. And that’s just the DOGS. I also have cattle to feed and water, goats to care for and milk, sheep, pigs and llamas. After EVERYONE is cared for – —then — I do my call backs. Emails I typically return in the early mornings. Since I’m a lousy typist a long response required from an email will be met with a request for your phone number. It will be faster for me to call as it takes so long for me to type. Thank you for your patience. And please know that I never ignore my phone calls. I am just very, very, busy keeping this ranch going and the livestock, gardens, fruit trees and of course, puppies and dogs, happy and healthy. My average work day is 12 hours long and that is 7 days a week. I don’t have days off. So, again, I’m sorry if I don’t get back to people sooner than you would like but, like I said, I will get back to you and the more often you call, the better chance you have of getting a quicker response.
PLEASE NOTE: This telephone number is a LAND LINE, and CANNOT RECEIVE TEXTS.
Please do not attempt to text this phone number. Please call to speak to Terry, or please send an email.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
You may send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If no response in 24 hours please call.
Thank you for your interest in Powder Valley Poodles!
DIRECTIONS TO THE RANCH
Please note that this facility is a WORKING CATTLE RANCH as well as a breeding kennel of the finest dogs on the planet. We have mother cows with calves and BULLS. The fences are bull-proof but the dogs can easily get in. Our dogs do not EVER go in the cattle pens. They know better. Your dogs do not. Bulls, and mama cows and dogs DO NOT MIX. PLEASE — for your pet’s safety DO NOT BRING your dog onto the property. Keep it in the car. If it is necessary for your dog to be out of the vehicle (say, at Terry’s request to see the dog) HAVE IT ON A SHORT leash. Even if it just prevents your dog from rolling in fresh cow plop — you and your dog — will be much better off.
Puppies are shown by appointment only. Please call ahead.
We can usually be available that day or the next day if we know that you are coming.
Gates are kept locked for the safety of our animals and guests.
Our phone number is 970-568-7585. No texts will come through on this line.
Our address is 506 West County Road 84, Wellington, CO, 80549. The office is BEHIND THE HOUSE. The office has a red metal roof and the entrance faces South. IMPORTANT! Entering our address in your electronic device usually sends you to our neighbor. Remember: The number “506” is on the mailbox on the road in front of the house AND — more importantly — our house is a SMALL LOG HOUSE WITH GREEN TRIM AND GREEN SHEDS FOR THE LIVESTOCK. IT IS NOT A WHITE HOUSE. If you are in a driveway with a bunch of trees next to you or driving on a driveway towards a white house YOU ARE AT THE WRONG PLACE. I suggest just following our directions written here. It will be the fastest, easiest way to get here.
Take I-25 north to exit number 288. This exit is also called Buckeye Road. Go west on Buckeye (also called County Road 82) about six miles to the stop sign (County Road 15). Turn right on County Road 15 ( also called Terry Lakes Rd.) and go EXACTLY one and one half miles ALWAYS BEARING LEFT. This automatically puts you on the correct road and right in front of the house. The house number is 506. It is a little log house with green trim and green outbuildings for the livestock.
Take I-25 south to exit number 288. This is the second Colorado exit. It is also called both CR 82 and Buckeye Road. Go west on Buckeye about six miles to the stop sign (County road 15). (also called Terry Lakes Rd.) Turn right on County Road 15 and go EXACTLY one and one half miles to the ranch ALWAYS BEARING LEFT. The house number is 506. It is a small log house with green trim and green outbuildings for the livestock..
From Fort Collins:
Go north on College past Old Town to the stop light at Terry Lakes Rd/Highway 1. Go north on Terry Lakes Rd/ HWY 1 . At the “Waverly Y” go towards Waverly (County Road 15) instead of Wellington. This means you must turn left onto 15. Go north on 15, “forever,” Eventually the road you are on becomes a dirt road. At the point that it becomes dirt, look at your odometer and go EXACTLY one and one half miles ALWAYS BEARING LEFT. This puts you right in front of the ranch. It is a small log house with green trim and green outbuildings for the livestock. The street number is 506.
