Advice when buying a Cocker Spaniel

Please read the following advice before buying a new pet, you should also read our article on avoiding scams :

  • NEVER make the decision to get a dog or puppy on a whim. A dog is a lifetime commitment and a lot of thought should go in to it before making the decision.
  • NEVER buy a new dog or puppy without being able to visit it at its home. If someone wants to meet you and makes excuses why you cant go to their home, just walk away and report it to us.
  • HELP US TO STOP PUPPY FARMING, read our PUPPY FARMING Information, in association with C.A.R.I.A.D
  • Read our detailed Information guide about dogs for potential new dog owners.
  • Puppies should not leave their mother until at the very least, 8 weeks old.
  • Read our Cocker Spaniel Dog breed information profile to research and find out more about this breed.
  • NEVER send money to someone for a pet using Western Union or Money Gram, as your money cannot be traced once sent.
  • Ask to see the pedigree papers and ensure the breeder's name is on the certificate.
  • Recently some advertisers are advertising their pets as Pedigrees, but when people have gone to buy the pet, the seller has made excuses and said they will post on the pedigree papers. NEVER pay for a KC registered dog or pedigree cat if they dont have the certificates as you may never receive them.
  • Be wary of outlets offering more than one or two breeds
  • When visiting the seller note the surroundings and never go alone
  • Visit the puppy or kitten more than once
  • The breeder should want to know about you too
  • Ask to see the puppy or kittens mother - be very suspicious if you can't

Puppies and Kittens bred commercially, indiscriminately and carelessly are likely to…

  • Develop disease
  • Have temperamental problems
  • Be difficult to housetrain
  • Find adjusting to family life hard
  • Suffer physical defects and have hereditary weaknesses
  • Think carefully before buying and do not buy the pet because you feel sorry for it.
  • If you buy from an unscrupulous breeder or dealer, you will be supporting their trade in misery. Every one you buy, another takes it place.

Buying a puppy or kitten in good health is vital for its own well-being as well as your bank balance.

As a Licensed Pet shop, licensed by North Kesteven District Council in Sleaford, Lincolnshire for the last 19 years to sell puppies, it is inevitable that we will have more than one breed of puppy to sell on the premises. We have a good record of dealing with the few genuine customer complaints we receive, quickly and with consideration for our customer sensibilities. Please feel free to talk to Lincolnshire Trading Standards. We pride ourselves in co-operating with various local authority departments including the RSPCA with whom we have a very good working relationship. It seems that all kennels get tarred by the same brush when the subject of dogs being sold is raised. The honest, caring and principled kennel is lumped in along with the uncaring and unprincipled kennel. I suppose I will have to just accept that as a fact of life, although I will never lower my animal welfare standards. I are not the sort of people whose only goal in life would be to make a Quick Buck at the expense of the welfare of our puppies or for that matter our customers who we value highly. It is as a result of this genuinely caring attitude that a number of customers (approx. 30% of total sales) return time and again over the years to buy puppies from us. We have been involved in the canine world, breeding, showing & boarding for some 39 years in total. We are not a puppy farm all of our puppies come from small licensed breeders that we have known over the last 30 odd years. The mothers of the puppies are family pets and they are still with their adoring owners. These are breeders who enjoy breeding and the companionship of their dogs but do not particularly want to be involved with face to face selling of the puppies, that’s our task. My wife and I firmly believe that the right puppy should go to the right owner; we take time to speak to the potential customer about their requirements, their lifestyles and their aspirations for their puppy. It is only after discussing these requirements do we let the customer choose from the puppies in the kennels, taking time to guide them towards the breed of puppy that best suits them and their way of life. I feel that by taking this time and trouble we usually get "a round peg in a round hole". On the odd occasion that we get "a square peg in a round hole", we try to do the best for the puppy and customer by allowing the customer to return the puppy to us. All of our puppies come with pedigree papers, we also give them the dates when they were wormed and what vaccinations the puppies have had and what they still require and we say that we are available 24/7 for advice. We also give them a puppy pack prepared for us by Pedigree Petfoods which includes the same food that the puppy has been receiving whilst it has been here. As far as we can ascertain the puppies are free of congenital defects, however, should this not be the case upon return of the puppy we undertake to either refund the full purchase price of the puppy or replace the puppy at the owners discretion.
