Puppies

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.

We try to socialise our puppies as much as possible and below is one of our regular visitors who relishes this part of their upbringing ! !

Whilst our breeding policy is not aimed specifically at the show ring and most of our puppies go on to make much loved little family pets (see Feedback Page and Photo Gallery) others have gone on to do well in the show world.  Pictured below are Lauren Gledhill and Daisy (a.k.a. Luggybrook Sherry for Rhoswyn) who is out of  *Cally's first litter. (*See Wizard of Oz pictures on our  Dog page).  Lauren tells us "so far she's had numerous placings all across the board from 1st to VHC and has already qualified for Crufts 2013, and won BPIS at Pwllheli Open Show, 3rd in a group placing at Stafford Showground and a few other Best Puppy in Breed at various shows".

'TIGGY'
LICHSTONE PRIDE OF LUGGYBROOK

This is Tiggy's first litter born on 30/5/15 and we are particularly pleased with the puppies.  She is very well bred - her father is Champion 'Melaleauca It Should be Me at Lichstone' and her  full sister, Lichstone Let It Be Me, won her class in Crufts 2014.  She is a very endearing little dog who always appears to be in a particularly jolly frame of mind!  No-one could be downhearted with 'The Tigs' about.! The puppies are sired by Lichstone Midnight Mover (Nacho) who has done so well for Tony and Ann McDermott and holds two ChallengeCertificates.  Nacho is the sire of Murdoch, our little stud dog,  who is pictured on the Dog Page.  Tiggy has been an excellent little Mum and puppies are now all happily settled in their new homes.  

Puppies pictured at 5 weeks old.  They have had their second worming and are just starting to learn the delights of toys, and experience the feel of grass beneath their feet outside in their run. Everything is a big learning curve at the moment and they are gaining confidence daily.



 

 

 

 

Pictured right: Babies pictured at 7 weeks enjoying one of the few nice days of the summer!  They have been able to run in and out of their run at will and enjoy wonderful games up and down the ramp and chasing each other through their step. It's incredibly difficult to get a good picture as they are continually on the move, but just managed to briefly catch their attention for this one! They are terrible time wasters and much time is spent enjoying their antics!
