♥ The dogs are our hobby, not a profit making business & we make no apologies for screening who will own one of our precious puppies.
♥ Be prepared to allow a dog to live with you in your household, as part of your family. Springers do not thrive in an outside yard or a kennel situation. 
♥ Have someone home most of the day or consider doggie day care.
♥ IMPORTANT! You MUST have  extremely secure dog proof fences as Springers follow their noses & wander off hunting & they are very agile, can dig & may 
scale 6ft fences.
♥ Be prepared to walk & exercise your new puppy every day.
♥ B
e prepared to attend puppy preschool or your local dog training club.
♥ Be prepared for & able to cope with LARGE amounts of dog hair & dirt? Springer Spaniels can shed hair all year around, they LOVE water & mud so are not really to be recommended for the house proud. Could you cope with this?

♥ Do you have small pets ie: rabbits or Guinea Pigs? Do you have pet birds, chickens, geese or other fowl? If so ~ you may wish to consider another breed as Springers are bred to hunt & may not always be the best choice UNLESS you can supervise them, train Spaniels or be prepared to learn.

♥ Be able to afford any Vet Bills ~ & these can sometimes be VERY expensive.
♥ Be prepared to groom your puppy. Springers do require ongoing lifetime coat care.
♥ Be prepared to de-sex your puppy should it not be required for breeding.

♥ Register the puppy with your Council & transfer Microchip details to yourself.
♥  In accordance with Australian laws ~ all puppies will have full tails.

♥  We do health tests on all our breeding stock including, but not limited to, hip & elbow X-Raying, DNA & eye testing.
♥  Puppies are initially vaccinated by us at 6 or 8 weeks. Their new owners are to follow up vaccinations as advised by their own Veterinary Surgeon.
♥ We will worm all puppies
 at 4, 6 & 8 weeks of age ~ with new owners to follow up regular worming as advised by their own Veterinary Surgeon.
♥ We will start all puppies on a Heartworm prevention programme according to recommendations ~ with new owners to be advised by their own Veterinary Surgeon.

♥ We will provide all your puppys records of worming & vaccinations.
♥ Puppies will be ready to leave for their new homes NOT before 8 weeks of age.
♥ Because we are registered breeders, we will register all puppies with DogsNT  & all puppies are sold with their original ANKC Registration Papers.

♥ We will initially Microchip all puppies according to ANKC regulations.
♥ All puppies sold as 'pets' are sold outright & will be registered on the 'LIMITED REGISTER' & are not for showing or breeding but can compete in most ANKC Trials.
♥ All puppies sold with potential for showing &/or breeding are sold outright & will be registered on the 'MAIN REGISTER'.
♥ We will provide information on Springer Spaniels, & care of your new puppy, feeding, training, health & so on to prospective new owners. 
♥ All puppies must be paid for in full before they leave for their new homes.
♥ All transportation of a puppy to their new home & family is the financial responsibility of the new owner.

♥ We will always try to match the personality of a puppy to a prospective new owner & family. This may also mean that although we may have pups, we might not have one suitable for you or your circumstance at that time.
♥ We will always be available to offer advise after a puppy has left us.
♥ Puppies will be given a thorough Veterinary examination before they leave us & any results will be made available to the prospective new owner.
♥ We will always take a puppy back should new owners find that they are unable to look after the dog any longer ~ with all original registration to be signed & will accompany the dog upon it's return to us. We offer this for the lifetime of any dog bred here, with no questions asked, as we understand that circumstances can & do change. 
♥ Please feel free too  contact us for any further information regarding a puppy.
