LOTTIE'S PUPPIES ARRIVED ON 21 NOV. Currently I have no puppies available from this litter.
The puppies will be clear from PRA and EIC as well as being unaffected by CNM.
Whiskey is a handsome lad who is not only doing well in the show ring but is also producing some stunning offspring. I have Ned here, from his 2011 litter with Poppy, also Gertie, from his 2013 litter with Martha. Lottie is a beautiful chocolate girl who joined my household last year.
The puppies start their lives in the whelping box set up in my living room where I can keep a close eye on them. Puppy-watching is far more interesting than any TV programme. At around a month old they move through into the dining room where they can have more space to move round and have access to the outside if the weather's good enough. They'll already be used to the hustle and bustle of the household, with friends and family visiting regularly (especially my young grandchildren) and the other dogs sneaking into the pen whenever they get the opportunity. They'll be handled regularly and experience all types of noises such as the vacuum cleaner, TV, dishwasher and washing machine (the washing machine, in particular, is seldom quiet when there are puppies in the house!)
When the weather's suitable the puppies are allowed out into a secure part of the garden. They have as many short car journeys as I can manage, prior to them leaving. Any puppy staying on after the normal leaving date (to accommodate owners' holidays, for example) will continue to be socialised in the same way as any puppy I keep myself.
Buyers will be welcome to come and visit the puppies from around 4 weeks of age onwards. Before that they'll be kept up to date with their progress and regularly emailed photos. I also add photos and videos to my website.
Once the puppies are ready to leave for their new homes, with them will be a puppy pack, 3kgs of food and a piece of the bedding Lottie has been sleeping on. Included in the puppy pack will be the Kennel Club Registration Certificate and 5 generation pedigree, copies of any of the parentsí health test results that aren't shown on the puppies' registration certificates, details of the worming/flea treatment so far, information about the amount and frequency of feeds, advice about exercise and various other bits of useful information. New owners will also get a DVD with photos and videos of the puppies from birth. The puppies will be microchipped before leaving for their new homes and will have 4 weeks insurance.
Finding the right homes for puppies is very important to me, so please be prepared to be asked a lot of questions - and I'll be happy to answer all of yours.
