Welcome to our web site!  We are proud to have the opportunity to showcase the talented dogs and handlers that make up the Wakemup family.  Although we are located in Kansas, our name comes from our favorite place to visit.  Beautiful Lake Vermillion in Northern Minnesota is the site of Wakemup Bay, where I vacationed growing up. My parents retired there, allowing us to visit with the dogs as often as we can!  While our breeding schedule is very limited (one litter every 2 or 3 years),  you would never know it by the tremendous success enjoyed by this very accomplished group!  We can't say enough about the wonderful people that own, love, and compete with our dogs. We hope you enjoy your visit!  Be certain to scroll all the way down on each page, you don't want to miss anything!       Beth and Eric Ericson
