BUYING A PUPPY

  1. Are they kennel club?
    Yes they are and will leave their own K.C REG paperwork, with their own unique pedigree name.
     

  2. Can you see mum and dad of puppies?
    Both parents can be viewed at any time.
     

  3. What age are they able to leave?
    As a licenced breeder no puppy is allowed to leave under 8wks of age.
     

  4. What tests have been done on parents i.e hip score, eyes etc?
    All our breeding bitches and stud dogs have been hip and eye tested as a minimum. Other bitches/dogs have had further tests depending on age of dog.
     

  5. What socialising has been done to the puppy and where have they been raised (are they used to household noises, handled by people and used to other dogs?
    Our puppies we breed  tend to be either inside our family home or in our specially designed whelping building.
     

  6. Have puppies received any worming treatment?
    We will give puppies a dose of worming treatment when they are 2,5 & 8wks of age.
     

  7. Will puppy leave with any injections/micro-chip if so what age can they go out?
    They will leave with their 1st injection and their micro-chip, they will require their second injection 2wks after (10 wks of age) which is to be done by the new owner choice of vet. After their second injection the vet tends to say wait a week then they’re aloud to go out for walks etc.
     

  8. Will puppies be vet checked?
    Yes our vet will give them a check all over and will report any findings in a letter. We advise all owners to take their new puppy to their own vets within one week if they are concerned about anything. If the vet finds anything due to the breeding of the puppy you have that week to return the puppy.
     

  9. How many times are they being fed and will they leave with any food (will I get a diet sheet to tell me about amount and times)?
    At the age of 6-7wks the puppies are not dependant on the mother this means the mum isn’t feeding them. At the age of 4wks puppies are introduced to puppy food as they get older the meal and proportion amount increases. By the age of 8wks they will be having 4 meals a day. All this info will be given to any new owners.
     

  10. Do they come with any insurance and if so who and how long?
    The Kennel Club offer a great health insurance cover, so all puppies will leave with 5wks insurance with them.
     

  11. What paperwork comes with the dog i.e. K.C papers, contract of sale, micro-chip certificate, diet sheet, worming?
    When puppies are ready to leave they will have their very own folder containing their unique K.C paperwork, five generation pedigree, contract of sale, diet sheet and a worming program.
     

  12. Toilet trained?
    Puppies will be partly toilet trained, they have been going on newspaper since they could walk around. The rest of the training is down to the new owners so take out into garden.
     

  13. How long can you take them out for i.e exercise?
    To reduce the risk of over exercising the young puppy we advise you to only allow puppy 10mins of lead walk a day till they are about 6mths, then increase to about 20mins after that. Once they are a year of age you can increase length of time even more. Just remember that how you treat the dog when a puppy will affect its health later in life.
     

  14.  Do you require a deposit?
    We ask for a non-refundable deposit which will secure your chosen puppy. The final amount is required when collecting the puppy.
