When making enquiries about our puppies, we expect you to have researched the breed and to be sure that this is the right breed for you.
Our sales contract states that you will provide a home for this dog for life (it is not to be sold or passed on elsewhere) and as PAPILLONS can live into their late teens. this is not a decision to be taken lightly. They will also require mental stimulation, and once past the puppy stage, will also require sensible exercise as well. Although the papillon is a fit and active breed able to take a lot of exercise, it does not require as much as the traditional working breeds.
You will also be expected to have plenty of time to devote to your new puppy, and time spent on the initial settling in/house training can help make things go far more smoothly than trying to fix things once problems have occurred and bad habits have been allowed to form.
We also expect you to come and meet ourselves and our dogs at least once before our puppies are old enough to leave us. This will usually be from about 3 weeks old onwards but if travelling any distance they're a lot more interesting at 5 weeks onwards and don't spend quite as much time sleeping.
No enquiries on behalf of 3rd parties please, if you are interested our dogs or puppies then please contact us yourself.
