Frequently asked questions.
When thinking of buying a puppy don’t rush into it, there are many different breeds out there…………..take your time and make sure you chose the right dog for your life style.
Q; Is the breed right for me?
A; Make sure you do all your homework and research the breed you are thinking of thoroughly, buying a puppy that will be a member of your family for hopefully the next 12 to 14 years is a big commitment.
Q; We have decided on the breed we want, what do we do now?
A; Get in touch with a reputable breeder, ask as many questions as you can think of and expect to answer lots about yourself too!
Q; We would like one of your puppies, what do we do next?
A; Give us a ring and we can have a chat about the breed and make sure the breed is right for you. We then like to meet you in person, we can answer any other questions you have and it will give you the opportunity to meet our dogs and get a real feel for the breed.
In the interests of our puppies welfare, we do not let our puppies go to anyone unless we have met the prospective owners in advance. If you would like to be considered to be included on our waiting list, please contact us preferably by telephone (details above) with some information about yourselves - we can then make arrangements for you to come and meet us and the girls.
Q; How do we book a puppy?
A; If you still feel the breed is what you want then let us know and we can add your name to our waiting list. When the litter is born we will contact you to let you know there is a puppy available if you still want one.
Q; Do we need to pay a deposit?
A; Once you are happy with your decision we ask for a deposit to reserve the puppy for you.
Q; When can we see the puppies?
A; We try to keep up-to-date photos on the web site so you can watch the puppies grow. It is best to wait until the puppies are around 4 weeks of age before you plan a visit, that way there is a good chance they will be awake and able to interact with you. You can come as often as you like so long as you ring and book a time first.
Q; What age can we take our puppy home?
A; The puppies are normally ready to go to their new homes from around 8 weeks old.
Q; What will we get with our puppy?
A; All our puppies are sold with the Kennel Club registration document, 4 generation pedigree, 4 weeks free insurance, puppy pack full of information, including a sales contract, food to start your puppy on and a lifetime of help, advice and support. (If the puppy has been legally docked then it will be micro chipped and have the supporting paper work signed by the veterinarian)
The Kennel Club registration has been endorsed ‘progeny not eligible for registration’ which means that no breeding of the puppy can be undertaken without the consent of the breeder. This endorsement can be lifted at the discretion of the breeder, (when the puppy reaches the age for breeding, has a satisfactory hip score and is sound in body and temperament).
Q; Will our puppy be vaccinated?
A; We don’t vaccinate the puppies before they go at 8 weeks as vets don’t all use the same brand of vaccine. We encourage the new owners to take the puppy to their own vet within 3 to 5 days to get it checked out and started on a vaccination program. Your puppy will have been wormed at least 3 times before he goes to his new home.
Q; What do we need to bring?
A; When you come to collect your puppy, aim to arrive early in the day so you can get home and let them settle, bring someone with you to watch the puppy and a couple of towels and some kitchen roll might come in handy. The puppy is better on someone’s lap for its first car journey, but if it’s a long way then a crate is always a safe option.
