Advert: For Stud
Before bringing your beloved puppy home, it's important that the puppy is over 8 weeks of age. Puppies still require their biological mothers before they are let go to their new home. This period of 8 weeks allows the pup to be socialised correctly, their personality formed and be taught learnt behaviours.
If you’re suspicious that the puppy is being sold before 8 weeks of age, then please report them to us.
Age:3 Years 6 Months 9 Days
Pet Breed: Cocker Spaniel
Size: Medium Dog Breeds
Puppies are safe from majority of infections for the first few weeks of them being born. From being a young pup their immunity is passed on from their biological mothers milk. However, this changes when they reach the age of eight weeks old.
All puppies should receive 2 vaccinations, the first between 8-10 weeks of age and the 2nd vaccination 2 weeks later around the age of 10-12 weeks. Older dogs may also need booster vaccinations and this is normally recommended by the vet. It's important that you check with the seller what vaccinations the puppy or dog has had and ask for the relevant paperwork. It's worth noting that puppies should have had their first vaccination before they leave their mother. If the seller has not provided a vaccination plan, then this becomes your responsibility to make an appointment with the vet for both vaccinations. A puppy needs to have vaccinations 7 days before allowing them to interact with the outside.
The cost of your puppies vaccinations will vary depending on what type of dog breed they are; normally they cost in the region of £30 to £60. This cost is minor in comparison to the life threatening diseases they can catch should they not be vaccinated correctly.
KC Registered: Yes
If the following advert stipulates that the puppy or dog is KC Registered, this means the dog has been registered with the Kennel Club. Registration with the Kennel Club allows you access to lots of information and advice on pet welfare, training, breeding and many other pet welfare subjects.
With this, the seller should provide you with the pedigree certificate which shows all of the dog's details and the dogs lineage and ancestors. It is your responsibility to ask the seller for a copy of this certificate before buying or adopting the puppy or dog. It's worth considering to check the documentation and phoning the Kennel Club to verify the registration.
Being part of the Kennel Club also allows you to show your dog and compete in many events throughout the country.
If this advert indicates no registration with the Kennel Club, this will mean that the puppy or dog will not come with a pedigree certificate from the Kennel Club.

Overnight board can be provided for your bitch. by prior arrangement. Also pictured are some of his offspring. Some pups are available from time to time. from various breeders . please ask. FAQs. Q. The most frequently asked question we hear is. HOW MANY PUPPIES PER LITTER DOES YOUR STUD DOG PRODUCE. This question could be more accurately put as. How many puppies does your BITCH normally produce. A. Fit and Healthy male dogs are thought to produce around 10.000.000 sperm cells per pound of bodyweight. That means that the average Cocker would produce something in the region of 240 million sperm cells in every ejaculation . that would be a hell of a lot of puppies. something that no bitch could survive. Therefore THE TRUTH IS. that the bitch controls the amount of puppies born. by the amount of eggs produced and those which she is able to keep viable beyond fertilisation. This is why it is so important that your bitch is in the best of health and free from disease and infection leading up to the mating and throughout gestation and rearing. That will ensure that as many viable eggs as her body believes that she will be able to carry safely. are fertilised and bought to full term. The BITCH determines the quantity and quality of eggs she produces. the DOG can only fertilise what is available. but BOTH DOG AND BITCH should be in excellent health. We hope that this helps and if required. can advise you on what to look for. when your bitch is approaching her most fertile period.
