UPDATE PUPPY AVAILABILITY June 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.
Prices for litters born in the autumn will be in line with the market at that time. I am licensed with my local authority with a 5 Star standard. My puppies are born and raised in the home with every care and attention and socialised according to The Puppy Plan. I am not prepared to sell them for less than puppies from unlicensed breeders with far lower standards and expenses than I have, and in many cases, using parent dogs with little or no DNA testing or KC papers.
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.
With regard to litters in 2021, the process for application for a puppy is as follows:
Once a litter is expected I will invite applications for that litter list. This will probably be around November for puppies in January, but this is a bit of a guess at the moment. In the first instance we would ask that you telephone for a quick chat. We will then send you the application form to complete. We will not be accepting applications for the list via message or email. Please read the notes below.
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.
We no longer home puppies to families with children under 5 except to experienced dog owners, where there is already a dog in the family and the children are familiar with dogs and confident around them.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE Due to lockdown easing we are now able to conduct socially distanced visits in our garden, weather permitting, with plenty of hand sanitiser at the ready! Puppies will still be health checked and microchipped by our vet before leaving. Collections of puppies will be contactless with social distancing in place.
