Thomas Totten advertised a stud dog named Notorious Boss. I paid a stud fee of $1,000 and complied with all requests Mr. Totten had in reference to an artificial insemination breeding. I paid $1,000 via PayPal around March 21 2013, took my b***h to a reproductive service vet, had a brucellosis test, up to date vaccinations, pictures, pedigree, and so on. On May 30th 2013 I contacted Thomas Totten of Big Business Kennels to let him know that my b***h had not yet gone into season. He replied by saying "Ok. But I'm sorry to inform you, boss died on the 19th. Bred with a female whom i thought was up to date on vaccination.." He offered me a Boss puppy in return. I asked if Boss was the sire, and he assured me that he was. Upon further research, I found that Boss was not the sire of the litter he was offering me a puppy from, but the sire was LEASHCANDY'S G-K STYLE. When I notified him and informed what I had learned he informed me that both Boss and GK had "tied up" with his female. [continued below]....

..... He had a DNA profile proving Boss was the sire of some of the puppies in the litter. I later found out that this was NOT true. Boss never died, and is very much alive in California with his owner producing AMAZING litters. I contacted the owner of Boss and told him the situation and asked him if he could provide proof that Boss was his. Boss's owner gladly sent me pictures of the dog along with proof of his ownership. The owner of Boss also informed me that "Boss has never been collected for artificial insemination... Never." I contacted Thomas Totten and informed him with what I had learned and asked for a refund. Mr. Totten said he "don't do refunds".  Thomas Totten injects his dogs with hormones that cause them to go into heat so he can breed the crap out of them like a puppy mill (A low quality one at that).  He had ads up for dogs claiming they have "never had a litter" when in fact they have.  Thomas Totten uses the BAIT-AND-SWITCH tactic to reel people in.  He advertises great looking dogs that have great blood lines, and takes people’s money.  Once their dog is in season and in need of the stud, he claims the dog they paid for is dead.  He then offers one of his ratty, over used dogs up as a stud. When he offered LEASHCANDY'S G-K STYLES to use as a stud, I DECLINED.  I am out over $1,000, but I am not putting my female at risk  by breeding her with his overused stud dog ((NOR AM I THAT DESPERATE).  Thomas Totten is an un-ethical breeder.  He breeds for profit, not for quality. Thomas also claims to be a criminal justice major and plans to work on the Federal level.  I'm not sure if this is just a part of his game or what, but if it is true, by committing fraud he has lost any and all chances at working on the Federal level, and even state for that matter.

Still trying to clean up your reputation

AUTHOR: - ()

 You should just give up on anything that pertains to K9's altogether because you obviously suck at it. I will not recant my statements about you being a scam artist and a BYB until for one, you pay me back. Two, you give up on dogs altogether. You're and always be a BYB and I'm obviously not the only one that sees this and/or has been screwed over by you.

Clarification

AUTHOR: Thomas Cunningham - (USA)

 First off I would like to address the credibility of this comment left on 05/06/2016. To whom it may concern, the content of the comment posted is entirely false. Real individuals that have a legitimate claim of wrong doings can contact me day or night. The context for the comment made on 05/02/2016, is a gross misrepresentation, and an all out abundant lie. I have a suspicion as to who posted the comment, a new K9 training facility in topeka area, we'll a little north of topeka. The comments are false and far from and curate. As NO ONE, has ever been inside my whelping facility. It's insulated, ventilated and has heating and cooling capabilities, all of these to keep my dogs cool and or warm when needed. Secondly, I do breed and sell K9s, I also buy dogs on occasion to add to my Breeding program. As such the dogs are proven, and or titled. As such with my stud dog, i purchased as a Certified Narcotics K9. I have never proclaimed to be a dog trainer, and no one can say they have heard me say such. I have studied methods on dog training, and I implement those on my personal dogs. I have never been contracted to train a dog, and I do not seem out clients pets to train. I have various training services listed on my website, and I facilitate those training services through different Training facilities in kansas,Nebraska, Oklahoma and Iowa. I have a breeding Kennel, that's what I Do, I selectively breed in my program and produce working puppies. Moving on, I have never claimed to be a police officer, who would openly lie about such a fact on social media, I do believe that is a felony. I do not have multiple facebooks, I have one, and one website. Another key point I would like to make, is that all my dog are OFA certified, with ether good or excellent hips and elbows. All of which can be seen on my website, links are provided on each dog. Aswell as in my contracts, all my puppies come with a health and workability guarantee. All my dogs are UKC Registered, except those noted on contracts when a dog is purchased. I own seven dogs, all of which are registered through the AKC,UKC or FCI. Lastly, I don't have the time to get on the Internet and bash anyone. Especially with unsubstantiated facts, the comments posted on 05/02/2016 are false. People can come anytime and see my dogs with an appointment. I can only speak for my Kennel and my dogs, no one else.

Thomas Cunningham Titter Titter Whoever he is...

AUTHOR: Hacker Tracker, Liar Finder - (USA)

 This guy Thomas is one of the biggest backyard breeders here in Topeka. He is affiliated with Mose at K9 OTC in Topeka Ks. He(Thomas) has to keep changing names, claims a kennel name which he puppy mills out of his garage. Claims to train but hasn't taught any even a touch of obedience. Falsely represents the dogs he tries to sell. Is in cahoots with another breeder that swaps pedigree papers. Thomas has I don't know how many FB pages under different names. Who does this? Let me tell you, dishonest people do. One claims he's in Holland, another he claims he's a law enforcement officer which is a lie. Steer clear of this seller because you'll be purchasing part neighbors dog or a littler with poor genetics only to have problem as they come into maturity. Always, alway request the paperwork, get proof from the vet. You may be looking at paperwork from a good dog and not the one you are actually looking at to buy. Avoid dealings with K9 OTC as well. As they say, " Birds of a feather fly together!" We'll that's what you have going on here. Last week I was there to pick my dog when one of Mose hood rats came out from the back with another ladies German Shepherd. It was a little rambunctious because he saw his owner. Well as the hood rat was walking the wild dog he was making many corrections(yanking the leash up) He did it as many as times from the back room up to the front desk. On top of all of that, he yanked so hard that the choke chain broke. Mose wasnt at the facility this day. Sooo with that being said, I'm not doing business there anymore as I'd suggest you look elsewhere too. There are several other board-n-trains in the city of Topeka and for the safety of your pet, I'd suggest you find a different one other than K9 otc Inc. The list of complaints goes on & on. Funny how all of the sudden he became certified in police dog training/sales too. All of that I was told was just signed off in trade as well. Always late, always has an excuse & never his fault! Shop around is all I can say.

Speak for yourself

AUTHOR: - ()

  Long story short, Im not completely satisfied so speak for yourself Thomas. The pup I received ended up being a FREE family pet. She had an umbilical cord hernia and was fixed. If you call solving a problem with another problem "settled" then, OKAY. I'm glad you're are happy with the outcome Thomas. I would be too, if I could make a living out of ripping people off.
