Choosing Your Breed
Dogs come in so many shapes and sizes. From the amazingly glamorous – think of the Afghan Hound – to the just simply adorable like the sturdy little Pug. Once
Buy From a Breeder
We can’t stress enough the importance of buying your puppy from someone who specialises in the breed you care about. A specialist breeder will be committed to the health and welfare of their dogs and litters probably won’t be very frequent
Many breeders sell their puppies with a contract which may prevent you from breeding a litter and registering the puppies with the Kennel Club. There are good reasons for this; maybe the puppy has faults which make it unsuitable for breeding – for example something quite simple such as a tail that isn’t totally straight – fine points that are disallowed in the Kennel Club Breed Standard. Breeders will also do everything they can to prevent their puppies being used as breeding animals in puppy farms; this is every breeder’s nightmare.
While a contract will limit your options you will have a lovely quality puppy, well bred and reared, socialised in the home and bursting with confidence. A friend for life. You will also have a breeder who cares and generally will always be there to answer your questions.
