HeidiThumb.ico     When it comes to finding new homes for our puppies we have followed a basic ethos right from the very start of our breeding journey. It is pleasing to find that so far we have been pretty good in our judgement and explained in a bit more detail below ~ but if you follow this link to You Tube the lady making the video puts what we, and every responsible breeder, are all about and who we are.
HeidiThumb.ico     Always remember that owning a dog is a commitment from both of you. You promise to look after him (or her) for the rest of their lives, feed, groom and clean up after them, exercise them, play with them and let them creep into every part of your family's life. They on the other hand promise to love you with great affection, give you hours of company, cheer you up no matter how sad you are and always give you their undivided attention and unconditional love.
    It isn't just a slogan - A dog REALLY IS FOR LIFE!
    As responsible dog breeders we will always feel responsible for a dog we breed, no matter how old, and if an owner who purchases one of our puppies finds at any time in the dogs life that they are unable to keep it we will always take it back until a suitable home can be found for it.
    Before we sell one of our puppies we always insist on meeting the prospective owners and that they see the puppy in its own environment with mum and any litter-mates. Buying one of our puppies is a two-way street - we vet each new owner and their lifestyle every bit as much as we expect them to vet us and ours. We always talk through the good, and bad, points of Cavaliers and what they can expect throughout the puppy's development.
    All our puppies are Kennel Club registered and leave us with four weeks free insurance. No puppy leaves our home until it is at least eight weeks old and will have been checked by our vet when it was born and immediately before going to its new home - in addition the puppy will also have had an eye exam carried out by an opthalmologist and have received its microchip (Compulsory from April 2016), as well as being wormed twice with Drontal Puppy Wormer at three and five weeks and the application of Endectrid (Our vets version of Frontline) spot-on treatment at seven weeks. We always insist that new owners have their own vet check each puppy and arrange for it to have its innoculation programme arranged as soon as possible - at time of writing this has been extended to minimum of eight weeks old for the initial injections.
    When they leave us each puppy (and its new owner) will receive a 'Puppy Pack' containing:~

a.Sufficient puppy food to last at least one week
b.A toy
c.A 'blankie' imbued with mum and kennel mates scents
d.Puppy Registration/ Transfer of Ownership Certificate from the Kennel Club.
e.Copy of the Insurance Certificate
f.An information folder containing
(1) Owners copy of the Sales Contract
(2)Petlog change of ownership for the puppy's microchip (Compusory by law from 2016)
(3)Copy of the puppy's pedigree showing pictures of ancestors wherever possible
(4)Copies of parents heart and eye certificates
(5)Copies of any Curly Coat, Episodic Falling and Dry Eye certificates plus any other relevant health screening certificates

g.A DVD of puppy's first weeks with us will follow at a later date (when all the clips are edited together) so that new owners also have a chance to enjoy puppy's initial development stages.
    The most important thing to do BEFORE collecting your new puppy is to make sure the garden and its boundaries are 'puppy proof', and that covers are put on, or fencing is put around, any ponds. Puppies are like cats - if there is the least gap they will get through it - we know from experience! Also ensure that all electric cables are secured or hidden out of reach/sight of puppy - another thing learnt from experience in the days prior to wireless keyboards.
    Source a recommended puppy training class in the local area and when you know dates book puppy in for his first lesson. Handy to get some light, puppy sized treats for use as rewards for good behaviour during training - i.e. Coachies, liver cake, or cooked chicken. Just remember to keep the treats small.
    Keep a good selection of toys available for puppy to play with and chew on - better a toy than your furniture or shoes. Keep all the toys in a toy box, which should be left in the same place so that he knows where it is, and regularly check toys for wear and tear. Also handy to have some bitter apple spray to spray on items the more persistent puppy likes to chew ~ but you would rather they did not!
    Buy the shaped bowls for food and water - Cavaliers have long ears, which will fall into flat-sided bowls. Some owners prefer to use a snood when feeding their Cavalier for this very reason.
    Whether they sleep in a crate/cage overnight or a dog bed, make sure that all family members understand that it is their 'room'. They will go there for peace and relaxation/sleep throughout the day and, as with two-legged puppies, does not want to be disturbed by intruders.
    All our puppies come with a lifetime help line and indeed we try to answer any question put to us or we will find out if we don't know the answer.
    Our door is always open to prospective puppy owners who wish to see our girls, and us, in their normal surroundings. Indeed we are always available to talk Cavaliers and puppies with like minded people.
