Reservation Process and main T&Cs
Send a brief watsap to 07894 282644 detailing the following:-
- Name and location
- Date you are looking to purchase a puppy
- Sex and colour preference ie Blue roan male
- Whether you have owned a dog or cocker before
- If you have children and age of them
- Employment status ie part time 2 days a week, or home all day etc etc
I will then aim to reply within 24 hours which will be a generic text depending on when you want a pup, this will be either, sorry no pups atm, or will ask you to text back in a certain week, or if very young children are at home I am unlikely to be able to help you.
This then gives me the first point of reference from when you originally enquired to try and keep it fair. I would love to talk to all my enquiries but it is simply impossible, once we get down to actually having a bitch in whelp, I will then make contact with people on the list who have watsap me back as requested and we will have a chat. This way manages my time better.
Health testing & Prices
I have always been middle of the road in terms of our pricing structure, not the lowest and not the highest, but in terms of quality and health tests I believe I am one of the higher end of breeders. There has been much debate regarding the price of puppies during Covid-19, and I have honored my usual price for people who have paid a deposit on my waiting list. There are several issues with this situation, my main concern being for me to sell you one of my puppies at less than half the current asking price of most commercial breeders I am risking my puppy to be sold on to make a profit, which is against the law, and more importantly I need to know my puppies are safe for a lifetime in the chosen pet home.
Another issue is that I have spent years developing my pedigree lines and producing health tested quality puppies, I have always been a business and paid accordingly. Many of these people selling puppies on the selling sites do not even know what is in the pedigree of their dam to the pups and many have no health tests or the bare minimum. They do not breed to type and temperament. I health test all my dogs which are listed below, this is an ongoing cost to the business.
With these few points in mind I unfortunately have no choice but to review my price structure accordingly. Prices going forward will be a sensible reflection of current market conditions.
All Puppies come from health tested parents which combined include the following tests
