Latest news:8th April. The Kennel club have now released a statement on selling puppies during Covid 19 outbreak. Plus guidance for home boarders, dog walkers etc. Whilst under lockdown breeders can deliver their puppies. The parents must be seen on video interacting with the puppies. Breeders however have to be licensed breeders to breed their dogs.
Also Lucy's law came in stating that no breeder is allowed to sell a puppy if unlicensed. Lucky for you we are licensed and our license has been extended past June. A prison sentance if caught breeding with out a license has been extended to six months in prison. They really mean to clamp down on breeders who are flaunting the system from what I have read.
I am thinking now of going ahead with some video calling soon. First contact will be a phone call. Then I can arrange a video call and show you Brooklyn and Indiana. Brooklyn is due in season any day. Lucky for us we can use our own stud dog, so we do not have to leave our home to get the dog mated. We are in lock down after all. We have been so grateful that Brooklyn held off her season because the reports just a few weeks ago were that no-one could sell puppies at this time. This has now given us time to read through the guidance, and we shall be following the law to the letter. Rest assured we will do things correctly and safely for you and I
Check out instagram as I am putting photos of the dogs on daily. You will see them in their home environment.
OLDER DOGS From time to time we may end up with a dog that someone has brought and can no longer keep it. If we do we will advertise the dog on our website whilst the dog remains with them. We pass your details to those owners. We always recommend rescues to people who contact us, or in fact other breeders who have had a dog returned to them or older breeding dogs that would be better in a family home rather than kennels. We aim to help anyone who contacts us for a puppy or older dog. We recommend Pug welfare for Pugs, French bulldog saviour for dogs who are rescued from terrible conditions, as well as Vizsla club rescues. We have all the contact details to hand, so contact us and we will pass on your details. From time to time we get people come to us wanting a dog with history who has been turned down by rescues. Come to us because if we know of a dog at a breeders home or in fact one of ours we will try and help you. We send out alerts to all our friends who breeds and we endeavour to find dogs a home. Its not about money its about finding dogs homes. No older dog is sold that we help with. But if someone wishes to donate to rescue then that is wonderful.
I find that many people who read my website miss out this section. As I am sent emails or text asking questions which are in this section. So please do read this as it will answer a lot of your questions.
Hungarian Vizsla puppies leave our home at 8 weeks of age.
Pug puppies leave our home between 9-10 weeks of age.
I will only go out to stud and use males that are fully health tested.
All my breeding dogs are health tested not only the relevant KC tests but we do lots of private tests using saliva or blood dna testing. Plus an annual heart check by our vet.
Our puppies are NOT DOCKED, not altered in any way. Unless their was a medical reason.
Dew claws are NOT removed, please see my dew claw page for more info.
All our dogs are Kennel club registered. The Kennel club is the only true legitimate dog registration company in the UK. Their are private databases now available but they are not the true governing body. They do fake registrations.
A 5 generation pedigree is printed by us for you.
I do not breed cross breeds so please do not send me emails to ask if I will cross a Vizsla and a Pug for you. This will never happen here.
All our puppies are micro chipped and registered to Animal tracker. You have 14 days to transfer ownership from me to you for free. By law puppies must be first registered to the breeder, so their is a trace of where the dogs are coming from.
I do NOT breed unrecognised colours. In Vizsla the only colour recognised is Russet Gold. So if you see registered any other colour they are cross bred dogs being falsely registered as pedigree. With Pugs the only true colours are Fawn, Apricot, Black and Silver. In French bulldogs the only recognised colours are fawn, brindle, fawn pied, brindle pied and pied black and white. A ny other colour is unrecognised as a result of cross breeding. Fawn is also fawn not lilac fawn, blue fawn and so on.
A breeding endorsement is put on all puppies unless I know you well. This means you have been sold a puppy as a pet dog. I will not lift and endorsement. If however you come to me before a deposit is placed and tell me you wish to breed then if you enter into a contract with us on our breeding terms we will then lift the endorsement at 2 years for girls and 18 months for males. If I know you through the show world then we will not put an endorsement on.
A puppy is only reserved by deposit. A £300 deposit is required. This is a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit and if you back out from the sale of the dog the deposit is kept by us. So think carefully before you place a deposit. The terms are clear. We have to take deposits to stop being messed about by people. I take the deposit by bank transfer.
Deposits can not be transferred, and they can not be claimed years later. A non refundable deposit is just that. NOT REFUNDABLE.
Final payment is cash only.
Each breed is priced differently. April 2020 prices will be going up simply because dog food has gone up, vet prices have gone up, to meet regulations we are spending far more. We can not escape the fact that we are loosing money breeding dogs and now need to up prices.
As soon as puppies are born I wait 48 hours and then I’m happy to take a deposit.
I reserve the right to return your deposit if I think you can not make a good home for one of my puppies.
When puppies are 5 weeks of age you can come and see them. You may take photos of the puppies but you can not post these on social media as this may contain our home, and gives thieves a good idea what’s in peoples houses.
When the puppy leaves you will need to bring the cash for final payment. A full receipt is given.
I provide for your puppy a baby blanket which is rubbed on mum for familiar smells. I also make the “Special Cushions”. These cushions are sprayed with a something which helps dogs with stress.
At 7 weeks of age our veterinary surgeon does a full health check on all the babies. A letter is printed by the vet with the microchip number on the letter. This is vital these days for getting insurance on your babies.
You are advised as we have paid for a health check to leave the puppy for two weeks to settle into their new homes before going off and getting vaccine. I always tell people to go to U TUBE and write in Dr Ronald Schultz and vaccines. He is a scientist which makes vaccine and will give you the correct advice for vaccine protocols.
A puppy vaccinated whilst stressed can actually end up with serious health problems which is due to the vaccines. So let your baby settle in for at least 2 weeks.
The day after you have taken the puppy I will text you to make sure all is well.
If you wish to work your dog let me know. If you wish to work your dog let me know.
We can not guarantee your dog will be the next top show dog, or working gundog or agility dog as how the dog develops is down to you.
At 6 weeks of age our puppies are flea treated.
At 3,5,7 weeks are wormed with either Panacur or drontal. Your puppy will of been wormed 3-4 times during his or her time with us.
Leaving Dates are usually weekends so Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning depending on the birth date. This is great for people who wish to have a long weekend at home with the puppy. We do not sell to anyone working full time.
PHOTOS: I know how exciting it is, and you want photos all the time but the truth is babies rarely sit still but take pictures whilst you are here. You can not share photos on social media of my homes.
Please note that I do not keep puppies longer than the leaving date, as I believe this is key with development and behaviour later down the line. A Vizsla is one of those breeds which should of been allowed to leave at 7 weeks but the law in 8 weeks. A dog that is rough with others and bully’s them can continue this into adulthood. The dog that was picked on can be nervous during its lifetime. So its unfortunate that they did a blanket all dogs can leave at 8 weeks. We keep pugs to 9-10 weeks as they are behind in development to an HPR breed. So this is why we say dogs leave at 8 weeks and its very important.
I’m asked all the time will I take the dog back in whilst people go on holiday. I can not because I would need a separate license to board dogs. The law changed October 18 so now all home boarders must be licensed. But we can not stress enough the importance of leaving at 8 weeks.
We choose your puppy for you based on living with them for 24/7 and us having the experience knowing which dog is suitable for you.

4 kilos of free puppy meat is available from natural instinct and this can be redeemed with a voucher. This gives you a weeks supply of food.
No advice is given through social media accounts. Please contact me directly for advice. Remember the dog is. Your responsibility and the law of the land states that you the owner is responsible for the dog, and if it needs a vet and you do not give your dog the adequate care you are breaking the 5 freedoms of animal welfare and can be held accountable. Do not take to social media asking for advice you should go directly to your veterinary surgeon.
In APRIL 2020 The law changes again with regards to sales of dogs. Lucy's law will be implemented. This means if you purchase a puppy and decide you no longer want it and the dog is 8 weeks to 6 months you can not resell the dog yourself. The puppy has to either go back to the breeder who can re-home the dog along side seeing the mother, or the dog has to go to a rescue centre. Where as before you could resell any dog you brought. Breeders do not have to refund money for puppy's returned. Most breeders I know won't resell the puppy and will just seek a good home. This puts even more pressure on you the puppy buyer to keep your pet and not re-sell it or re-home it. If the breeder can not take in the puppy then it must go to a rescue centre. Rescue centres are bursting at the seams and this will now over crowd dogs in these centres. I do feel this could of been thought about much more carefully. In the UK all pet owners are duty bound by the 5 freedoms law also. So it is becoming more of a responsibility to the puppy. So think carefully before you buy a dog from April 2020 as its about to get harder to re-home a pet.
FROM December 2020 We exit from brexit and travel scheme alters for all pets. At the moment you can have a pets passport, micro chip your puppy, rabies vaccinate your puppy and 21 days later leave the UK. So long as your pet has been wormed 24 hours with the correct wormer to can reenter the UK. So what is going to be required. Their could still be an extra thing added but this is what is going to happen. Pets passport, micro chip the dog, rabies vaccinate the dog and 30 days later a blood test is required to check titre level. It takes 2 weeks for results to come back, and a titre of 0.5ml must be achieved. If it fails then rabies again and blood check. Some breeds Im told never will develop immunity to rabies such as English bulldogs being one that is difficult. We know our own dog failed the blood test and needed to be revaccinated, costing us well over £500 by the time we had done. So if the test comes back positive you can then travel 90 days later. Worming 24 hours before entering the UK. It looks like also on return a medical health test will be required. However we are unsure as their is talk that on the french border they may also require a medical health test done before travel. This is the uncertain parts are the health tests. We shall know more as the year goes on. But I would advice you speak to your vet now if you wish to travel in 2021. At least 4 months before travel you must complete everything. I would even suggest before then in case the blood titre fails on the first time. Your vet will advise, or go direct to DEFRA website for up to date information.
