Buying a puppy is a major commitment and we know from bitter experience that much time and money can be wasted following up adverts. We therefore hope through our small homespun website to provide as much background information as we possibly can, not only about our dogs but also their home environment.
We have always taken breed standards seriously and our aim is to breed happy, healthy little puppies of good type and sound conformation, and to give them the best possible start in life.
Our dogs all share our home but we also have excellent kennel facitilites with 'nursery' section opening into a grass run where puppies are free to play and develop young limbs, this is also an asset when it comes to house training as they learn to use the grass. We also take care to get them used to household noises and time is shared between the outside 'nursery' and the kitchen. Although we only breed the occasional litter we are proud to be Kennel Club Assured Breeders and have undergone a strict inspection. We are also members of the Schnauzer Club of Great Britain and were pleased when they included an article on Luggybrook Schnauzers in their their magazine.
Our dogs have regular eye tests, all litters are screened and puppies come with BVA/KC/ISDS certificate, first inoculation and a full and thorough health check by a specialist small animal vet. Careful attention is paid to parasite control with worming carried out at 2, 5 and again at 8 weeks before puppies leave for their new homes (record provided).
New owners will receive a sales wallet containing pedigree, registration document, sales contract and 4 weeks free insurance through the Kennel Club and a booklet covering all aspects of care for first time owners. Puppies also come with ‘comfort blanket' with familiar smells to help them settle quickly and happily into their new homes, and a pack containing 3kg of Pro Plan Puppy food together with voucher for £5 off first purchase.
