UPDATE PUPPY AVAILABILITY May 2020
OUR LIST OF INTEREST/WAITING LIST FOR 2020 IS NOW FULL. APOLOGIES BUT NO FURTHER APPLICATIONS FOR PUPPIES CAN BE TAKEN AT THIS TIME.
Puppies will be £1500 for the first two litters of 2020. Prices are subject to change. It has been noted sadly that due to demand for puppies currently some are quickly being resold on the internet for higher prices. Our prices must be such that this does not happen. If it is necessary to rehome Redkite puppies they MUST be rehomed via us as per our contract of sale.
Due to the volume of requests to be placed on waiting lists this year we are considering a two tier list for next year – one list for those who have decided they definitely want a puppy from us (Priority List) where a small deposit will be taken, and a further list for those who are seeking a puppy from several sources (General List). There will be four spaces for each litter on our Priority List, and the remainder of the puppies will be offered to the General List. This system if adopted, will commence in January 2021. Waiting lists for puppies in 2021 will open at the end of the year.
Please note the following:
Details of family background, ages of children, work hours and patterns will be required. We do not home puppies to full time workers. There MUST be someone at home most of the day to care for a puppy and that person should be willing to engage with this. The family member undertaking the care and training of the puppy must come to view please. We do not home puppies to families where a family member is allergic to dogs. Our puppies are homed as pet dogs and not for breeding or assistance work unless by arrangement with a qualified trainer.
If you have children under 5 please think very carefully about whether you can manage a young puppy. If you have always had dogs in the family then that’s fine, but if not, be sure you know what you are taking on and the problems that may arise if both puppy and babies are not carefully supervised.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE We will be conducting viewings at the moment by video only via FaceTime or WhatsApp due to current restrictions. We appreciate this is not ideal and it calls for a great deal of trust on both sides. Deposits will be paid for puppies unseen, and we will have to promise puppies to families we have been unable to meet in person. However, at present it is the best we can do for the puppies already here or on the way. Puppies will still be health checked and microchipped by our vet before leaving. Collections/delivery of puppies will be contactless with social distancing in place.
