BREEDING
BREEDING FULLY HEALTH TESTED GUNDOGS SINCE 1983
Puppies & Breeding...

Although we live in credit crunching times.... if your first question is "how much are they?" please do not go any further...

People should breed the very best that they can... for health and longevity and should provide unlimited help in the future. If money prevents you from buying the best available, why not consider giving a home to a rescue dog?

Remember... putting size of the dog to one side, the costs of keeping a dog are the same no matter what the breed. If money is a consideration have you worked out annual feeding costs, fairly regular vet checks (lets not think of illnesses / accidents) and also care during holidays?
All my puppies have always been home reared - in and around my family.

The puppies are weaned on CSJ Puppy food www.csjk9.com and BARF (bones and raw foods).
The English Springer puppy above is chewing a raw chicken wing whilst the adult Papillon bitch takes on a few beef ribs! Which are as big as her!

Dogs grow correctly and, in my experience, remain far more healthy when fed as near to a natural diet as possible. Very high protein all-in-one dried foods are all very well but are often over fed and used inappropriately, with dire results. It can cause over accelerated growth in, for example, the length of young bones. In later life there is too much strain on the digestive system trying to cope with excessive protein levels.

Puppies leave here microchipped, Kennel Club registered (with the KC's 4 weeks free insurance cover), fully wormed and routinely treated for fleas. Usually all pups are screened at 6 or 7 weeks of age for congenital eye defects by Mr Mason of Seadown Veterinary Practice, Hythe. Spaniel tails will be docked by a third (Special note re docking -see my soapbox subjects) and dew claws will be removed. There will be certification with each puppy signed by the Vet that performed the operation. The pups will also have had an early vaccination. Puppies are supplied with full written instructions to help with their basic care, especially during those first important few days and months in their new home.

Help and advice is always freely given in the days and even years ahead. As an added safety net, it is my policy to always take back my pups at anytime, at any age. Happily, this is a very rare occurrence. I offer a 24 hour FREE helpline for all breeds and to anyone but, please remember, I am not a Vet!!

I promise to always take my dogs back - no matter what the reason...

I don't sell my puppies twice so no money changed hands - just a promise to bring him back if things go wrong...
Lomcovak Lingtong (pet name Vinnie) was returned to us for very naughty behavioural reasons and was rehomed....

read below what his new owner reports...

Hi Christine,
One year has passed, and here is Vinnies first ever red rosette, last Saturday he won his first ever agility show, his first ever run!!! Beat nearest dog by 2 whole seconds!!
Am I proud of him or what!! Have to lock my car cages, as the amount of interest shown in him is enormous!
I can take him to school and he is perfect with all the kids, he is great with my tiny nephews, and loves the whole planet.
As long as he is part of the action he is a happy dog. Thanks for giving him a second chance.
