Recommendations for litters sired by our dogs

Where possible, we like to make at least one visit to UK based litters sired by our dogs when the puppies are around 6/7 weeks old.

We recommend that all litters sired by our dogs are KC registered and endorsed through the UK Kennel Club - "Progeny Not Eligible for Registration" and "Not eligible for export pedigree". 

We can provide further information on managing these endorsements and provide guidelines under which they can be lifted - ensuring that puppy buyers and breeders each have a signed contract outlining these requirements.  Breeding endorsements should always be lifted free of charge subject to meeting your requirements.  

The KC do make a charge for issuing an Export Pedigree - however dogs do not require one to live and be shown overseas.


Whilst we cannot force breeders to sell pups at a set price - we recommend that all pups in a litter are sold for a single price regardless of colour and gender.  This price should be set long before the puppies are born,
