| Our Border Collie and Cockapoo puppies are born and
reared in the house, so they get used to everyday noises
very quickly. From the day they're born they hear the sounds
of the vacuum cleaner and washing machine, and the rattle of
pots and pans, along with the noises made by the older
dogs and visitors. All our dogs are eye tested, and all our
puppies are tested at approximately six weeks of age.
Although we thoroughly vet prospective new owners of our
puppies, we understand that unforeseen things can happen in
people's lives that can make it difficult to keep their dog.
For this reason, we require new owners to assure us that
should anything happen that leaves them unable to keep their
dog, regardless of its age, they will return their dog
to us. The prospect of a dog that we've brought into the
world ending up as an unwanted stray, or being moved from
home to home, is unthinkable.

| A Word about DNA
| We are firm believers in DNA profiling, which is the only
way of establishing without doubt the true parentage of any
puppy. The Kennel Club recommend DNA profiling
as part of its accredited breeders scheme, although it is
currently entirely voluntary. However, we would
like to see this practice become compulsory for all dog
| A Heart-felt Plea
| When you decide to buy a puppy,
whoever you buy it from, please make sure
you see the puppy and its mother
in their own environment. Don't consider
buying a puppy without satisfying yourself that, at the
very least, the puppy has been bred in satisfactory
conditions, and that the mother is fit and healthy.
Ideally you should be allowed to spend some time with the
puppy and its mother, and perhaps even with other dogs
owned by the breeder. As well as giving you some
idea of the likely temperament of the puppy, this would
also go some way towards stamping out the disgusting and
cruel practice of puppy farming.
| Puppies deserve the best
possible start in life, and their mothers and fathers
deserve to live healthy and happy lives too. It's
the least we can do.
