Bad to the Bone Kennels, LLC is a family owned and operated pet service located in Virginia. For over 3 years, we have dedicated ourselves to the American Bully and American Pit Bull Terrier breeds. All of our dogs are raw-fed, obedience trained, socialized, and treated like family. We also pride ourselves in promoting an ethical and dignified breeding program as demonstrated by our health testing practices. All of our breeding dogs are carefully health and DNA tested to ensure we produce the healthiest and highest quality offspring.
About Our Program
Our main goal is to provide families with puppies that are well-tempered, healthy, loyal, and protective. We carefully select all of our breeding stock and plan breedings accordingly to produce the perfect family dog. We do not breed to dogs with a history of aggression, major health problems, history of in-breeding, or merle dogs.
All of our dogs are registered with the United Kennel Club, the largest all-breed performance-dog registry in the world. This means that you will know the exact ancestry of your dog and receive a visual representation of their lineage. As an added benefit, our dogs are also registered with the American Bully Kennel Club. The ABKC is the official registry for the American Bully and Bully breeds.
Health is a top-priority in our program. All our dogs are health tested using Embark Health + DNA kits. In addition to health, nutrition is also very important to us. All of our dogs are fed human-grade raw foods. Their diet consists of a combination of muscle meats, bone, organ, and liver.
Our dogs are our family. They all live with us indoors and get lots of love, care, and attention. When they are not indoors with us, they are outside running and playing on our 1.5 acre property. When we have litters, no shortcuts are taken. Each puppy receives the best care you could ever ask for. We hand-select and match each one of our puppies to a loving and caring home.

What Our Dogs Eat
As Certified Raw Dog Food Nutrition Specialists (RDFNS), we are properly equipped to structure and achieve balanced meals for dogs. We know how to avoid the imbalances that some foods can cause and how to ensure dogs get enough vitamins and minerals naturally!
Why Feed Raw?
A raw food diet is the best diet you can give your dog. Dogs that eat raw food are more likely to live longer, have more energy, and have less health issues in comparison to kibble-fed dogs. Raw-fed dogs also have cleaner teeth, shinier and softer coats, healthier digestive tracts, and stronger immune systems.
Raw Food & Treats for All Breeds/Life Stages
Dogs of all breeds, ages, and sizes can benefit from a raw diet and single-ingredient treats. Check out this beautiful bowl for an English Bulldog made with our Beef Mix, Anchovies, and Dehydrated Mussels.
