Michele was amazing to work with! Had been messaging her since the puppies were born and she had been keeping me up to date on there progress. When it came time to pick her up she was perfect! never had a pup that was so good in her crate the first night she is such a great pup. Couldn't be happier. Hope to continue working with her in the future. Thanks for an awesome experience.

We are absolutely in love with our Toy Eskie boy, Fizzgig. I really appreciated that Michele was so willing to send regular updates and lots of progress photos and videos as he grew and hit milestones. Fizzy is so sweet and very well socialized. He shows no fear of people, kids, loud sounds, he does well in a crate and loves learning tricks. We have had him home for 3 weeks and he is doing great! We are so thankful for the wonderful care from Michele and her family, they clearly adore their dogs!

We absolutely LOVE our Eskie, Eloise, and Michele has been such a pleasure to work with. She took TONS of time to answer all of my questions, and we're still in touch often as Eloise is adjusting to our home. Michele was open to Facetiming with our new puppy, and texted with me frequently, which was super convenient. Michele clearly spends A LOT of time socializing and caring for her puppies. When Eloise came to us, she was so friendly and calm. Almost nothing scares her, even loud NYC ambulances! She has been so easy to house train, as Michele started the process before Eloise came home to us. Eloise has been the most perfect puppy, very very smart and a wonderful temperment!

I was a foster mother to an American Eskimo many years ago and fell in love with the breed. A couple years later, I decided to search for an Eskie puppy and found a little girl in Southern Minnesota just as the Internet became more popular for dog adoption. I had a quick and luckily wonderful experience with the family/breeder but sort of trusted that it would all work out. It did and I had Kziensa for sixteen years. She was my fluffy princess and I knew, at some point, I would be ready for more puppy kisses and another happy Eskie smile. A couple months ago, I decided it was time to get "puppy pregnant." I contacted Wasatch Eskimo Puppies after looking endlessly online for a suitable breeder/family that I felt confident would be the best beginning for my new fur baby. Within mere days, Michele answered all my questions and I found out she was expecting not one but two litters! Over a couple weeks, we chatted and discussed options while she shared pictures, videos, and even a few Facetime calls. I was instantly impressed with her warmth, extensive knowledge about the breed, and care/concern for placing her puppies in safe and loving homes. Honestly, I knew she felt a genuine love for her doggies, the puppies she helped bring into the world, and the families who now take care of them. I live a few states away (California) and she was great to keep me updated with daily pics/videos of mama (Aspen - literally the smiliest dog), updates on the puppies, and their general care and disposition. And they weren't even born yet! The night the puppies were born, she texted me photos as each one entered the world. I felt like I was right there to witness their births. When the first girl arrived, I knew in my heart this was the one. Even though her sister came out a few minutes later, I just...knew. Michele texted me lists of items to get, suggestions for cool puppy gear (hello, twenty years ago we had no Internet, chewy.com, or amazon dog marketplace to peruse!), and honored my requests for puppy paw pics. She paid attention to their disposition and character development so that I could be sure I was choosing my new furry girl wisely. Since I know the breed, it was fun to discuss recognizable traits, growth milestones, and possible issues in real time. Michele is so very knowledgeable as an Eskie lover, breeder, and authentic dog lover. Her Midwestern kindness and trustworthiness shone through immediately and has continued throughout. By coincidence, I had a long layover in Salt Lake City during a visit home to North Dakota. The puppies were about four weeks old. Michele picked me up at the airport and let me meet the two girls on her front lawn. We played in the sun and had fun in the grass. So many puppy kisses. She was gearing up for vacuum cleaner noise training and water drinking later that day. And her grandchildren were so great with the puppies, which is especially important during the socialization process for child exposure. I will be picking up my new furry girl in about two weeks. I recognize her immediately in the photos/videos she continues to text. She now responds to the name I chose and I am so excited to see how she has grown and all that she has learned in just a few weeks. But mostly, I cannot wait for those puppy kisses. I very much wanted to write this testimonial for those of you who might be considering adopting an Eskie from a trustworthy family who enjoys their dogs and wants to share them with other loving people. This is not a puppy mill or a careless breeder or a family who needs to make money. This is a family who has their grandchildren socializing the puppies with hugs and kisses and laughter. When you work with Michele and Wasatch, you're working with someone who has expertise and experience to start your puppy off with the best care, medical attention, socialization, and love possible. Michele and her family work to expose puppies to all the realities of our world: vacuums, nail clippers, tactile variations, grass, toys, hugs, playful fighting (and conflict resolution), water, food changes, treats, silliness, seriousness, and, of course, kisses. As a soon to be thrice Eskie mother, I cannot believe I found such an amazing family/breeder to work with for my next fluffy princess. I am so excited for the puppy, of course, but I also feel very confident that she has been brought into this world and socialized for her first 8-10 weeks by loving, knowledgeable people who care about their puppies and the lives they will live with their eventual human families.

Michele was so flexible, nice and understanding about my family's questions surrounding which pet would ve a good fit for our family. We ended up taking a sweet mini eskies and she is so great with our baby and toddler. Thank you for helping us find our next family member!

We first saw a picture of our Stella and loved her immediately! We contacted Michelle who was very thorough, making sure we were the best family for her last little girl from the litter. We were so thrilled when Michelle agreed to choose us as Stella's family! When we picked her up, Michelle not only gave us all her veterinary records, but made sure Stella left with her favorite toys, her little puppy blanket (which she still has and loves) and even some puppy chow. Our Bichomo, Stella is now a year old and we couldn't be happier! She is smart, loveable and so playful! She is great with children and our grandkids adore her! She gets along wonderfully with other dogs, and is the perfect camping companion. Our furry little child is exactly who we were looking for! To anyone considering a puppy from Wasatch Eskimo Puppies, trust me! You won't be disappointed. Thank you Michelle!

Niki, my miniature Eskie, arrived here a month ago at 16 weeks old. She is a bundle of energy and very sweet. It is clear that she had a happy and caring upbringing. She has given a new lease on life to my 13 year old Norwegian Elkhound with whom she climbs all over and gets him to play. Michelle was wonderful to work with. Since I am elderly and don't travel any more we made arrangements for her to drive to Colorado to deliver Niki to me. How many breeders would do that! I highly recommend Michelle and Wasach Eskimo Puppies.

Our beautiful girl, Uinta came to us last November and I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first being that I have only owned big dogs and my wife is allergic. I will never own a big dog again. Uinta stole our hearts from day one and my wife has not struggled with her allergies. She is full of personality and unconditional love for anything that breaths. She’s very friendly and good with kids and other dogs. It took her a while to get potty trained but don’t be fooled, she is very smart. I would definitely recommend a Bichomo to anyone interested in adding more love into their family.

Hi It is not possible for our family to love the little furry addition to our family more.We brought home one on the Bichomo’s last spring. My daughter has allergies and getting a non-shedding breed was a must! He is the most lovable white fluff ball on the planet. This breed is smart, funny, loving, & a good watch dog all packed into 10 tiny pounds. We love him!

I can't say enough good things about Michelle and Wasatch Eskimo Puppies. I was able to fly to SLC on Saturday to meet my new pup with Michelle and spend time talking and playing. It confirmed I was making a great decision. I picked up my little Avri (Ava to mother Aspen) the next day and flew home to Phoenix. Avri did great the entire flight. Michelle really loves her pups. They grow up in a loving family and are socialized with adults, children and other dogs, so they have the best start at life. Thank you Michelle for loving what you do!

MY STORY NOLLIE WAS NOT ACQUIRED FROM WASATCH ESKIMO PUPPIES JUST SHARING BECAUSE MICHELE THOUGHT MY NOLLIE IS SPECIAL AND SPECTACULAR JUST LIKE ME. N
Nollie has been the greatest dog ever. I was a lab guy and didn’t want a foo foo dog. But she became my best buddy. She loves fishing and won’t let me go without her. She goes fishing withme on a standup paddle board every chance we get.

I was referred to Wasatch Eskimo Puppies by a friend, and my experience has been nothing short of amazing. Michele was so kind and informative. When the litter of her Bichmo pups were born she sent pictures of the little and continued to send me pictures as they grew and grew. Getting them was so exciting and she finally told me to come over and pick my little Remy boy. I got to play with him before he was ready to go and when the time came she had his vaccine papers, a toy he had played with, and even a cloth that stayed with his mom so he would have her scent when adapting to our home. She sent me texts afterward checking up on our progress, tips and tricks, and still caring for his well-being. Remy was so socialized and has a wonderful personality. We love him!

We love our Mini-eskie Sage! He was so well socialized when we picked him up at 8 weeks old. We flew to Orlando with him in a Sherpa pet carrier as carry-on and he slept the whole way. We are working on outdoor potty training and at 9 weeks he is almost completely trained. He has a great temperament and is a healthy, happy, smart puppy!

These puppies are so adorable. Dealing with the owner was the best experience I’ve ever had at acquiring a dog. The owner is very clean and my puppy is healthy and happy. I highly recommend Wasatch Eskimo puppies.

I’m am sooo happy with my puppy, Max. Michele (Wasatch Eskimo Puppies) was so sweet and friendly, she allowed me to visit Max daily at 7 weeks, I had paid for Max in full and picked him up and would take him home for few hours throughout week seven and took him home for good when he turned 8 weeks. When he came home, he was familiar with me and the surroundings that transition was smooth. I bought him a stuffed animal that looks just like him to remind him of his litter-mates and kept it in his kennel, it worked and made kennel training a breeze. I cover his kennel and as long as it’s covered he doesn’t make a sound. I also trained him to be in a carrier for car rides and flights. He took his first flight to Chicago (about 3.5 hours) and stayed in his carrier under the seat in front of me without making a sound. I work in a pet friendly LTC facility and bring him to work. He is so sweet to all of the residents. He is great with other dogs at dog parks. He hates water and baths, but I recently got him groomed and groomer said he was perfect. He’s also great with children. He also loves hikes! I took him to Yellowstone/Tetons this summer, most hikes did not allow dogs but with the carrier and how quiet he is, I got away with him being on every single hike! Would recommend this breed to anyone! And Wasatch Eskimo Puppies!!
We are so happy to leave a review for Wasatch Eskimo Puppies, Michele is such a great Breeder. We were able to come look at our little girl a couple of times, and she even let us take her for a sleepover. A daytime trip, to make sure she was the right puppy girl for us. Our little girl is the sweetest. She is socialized above and beyond any of are other dogs were. She has slept through the night since the beginning. Was 75% potty trained when we got her at 8 weeks, completely now at 3 months. Our little girl is so very smart, sweet loves people, loves playing, isn’t afraid to ride in cars. Always up for something new. Just a wonderful little puppy. You can tell Michele has taken excellent care of them and loved them so much. Thank You, Michele and Wasatch Eskimo Puppies.
Our dog was long anticipated from the fact that we missed out of any available puppies from a litter, we had to wait for the next litter, and if there was even going to be a next litter. Wasatch Eskimo Puppies was very accommodating and patient and kept us very well informed along the way, we jumped for for joy when we got confirmation that Kia was pregnant. We were ecstatic, Michele was excited for us. We got newborn pup photos, and a picture text the next day after they were born. We were updated continually, and every question we had answered. Very professional and forthcoming and we do not regret are decision of adding to our family. Healthy, great temperament, somewhat potty trained and slept in crate the first night. Michele had a tear saying goodbye, whispered have a good life little one, and he sure is having his best life. We go hiking, camping, fishing, he is a constant companion, with great parents and breeder.
We had just lost our beloved dog and Jett just came into our lives and has made our family complete, Wasatch Eskimo Puppies was great from knowledgeable information and daily updated pictures. Sent via text.
The puppy package cam complete with a 10 pound grain free bag of dog food and a travel crate for easy transitioning at night and smell of mom and litter mates on blanket, treats, toys, wet food, toothbrush.
We cant say enough about Wasatch Eskimo Puppies, do not look anywhere else.

Love, Love, Love Wasatch Eskimo Puppies.
I first came to know Michele of Wasatch Eskimo Puppies when I was interested in a female puppy, a Bichomo a cross between a Eskimo and Bichon. Long story, shortened, I now have 2 girls, Shasta and Lil Bit. They have been an absolute joy, they are best friends from 2 different litters, same mom Kia, and dad Kodiak.
Their personalities are unique as their breed, I needed something that didn’t shed much as my daughter is allergic to fur. And these 2 are a godsend. She doesn’t take medicine when she comes by and says she has very little sniffles.
I give 5 stars, but I love my pooches.
I can’t imagine getting my Bo from any other breeder. My family and I were very impressed with the grounds, the cleanliness, they even have a heated dog house. This was a pleasurable experience and I highly recommend you check out Wasatch Eskimo Puppies. We are purchasing another puppy in the near future, pure love. The puppies are healthy, loving, spirited, remarkable.
