Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
Our puppies are raised in the house and are socialised around us, our many older dogs and visitors to the home. They do not leave until they are fully ready at around 8-12 weeks of age.
We progressively DNA test (PRCD and PLL-PRC3) all our dogs, both Crested and Peruvians.
We live rurally on four acres with a dedicated whelping setup inside the home.
Included with our puppies
Registered Pedigree with the ANKC, microchip, DNA tests, vaccinations and worming, diet sheets, lifetime support and advice. We can arrange vasectomies and tubal ligation, so there is no need to totally desex your puppy and injure their growth. We will take back our dogs at any age, but unless there is a health reason, we will not refund.

This is a disease affecting the spinal cord of older dogs, initially causing wobbliness and eventually hindlimb paralysis. It can affect a wide range of breeds. There is now a DNA test that can indicated if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.
A heart certificate means the breeder has had their breeding dogs examined to confirm they are not affected by any common heart conditions which might be passed down genetically to the puppies. This can be done by a veterinary cardiologist or a skilled GP vet. Common heart conditions include Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) and Myxomatous Mitral Valve Disease (MMVD).
