I am new today and have learnt so much already reading your posts. I am looking for my first puppy, have had lots of puppies and dogs in my extended family but this one will be my own. Could anyone tell me any info on this breeder, good or bad please?

Their website doesn't tell you a lot as pedigrees etc are available on request - their dogs look along working lines

They appear to hip score their dogs and have used some nice stud dogs - but can't tell you any more than that - hopefully someone will be along soon who knows something about them

Nice attractive website, caring words on it. The dogs appear to be from working decent although the chocolate stud dog looks to have a heavy dose of show lines in him.

Don't meet them competing at any level showing or working and I do go up their way fairly regularly. They hip score, I would be inclined to demand optigen results as they move heavily in both field trial and chocolate circles with their dogs, two 'amber alert' areas these days when buying from parents with no Optigen results...

No mention of eye certificates against the individual dogs but maybe a general mention is on the website somewhere. No elbows scored even on their stud dog - but maybe they just don't mention it?

edited to say: Had a look at the breeding of some of the dogs on the hipscore database and certainly Optigen results would be VERY prudent if you want to buy a healthy puppy from them 'eye-wise'. That is no slander on THEM, just unfortunate results coming back from the lines behind their dogs.

Checked the elbow database and no elbows, but not everyone 'believes' in the elbow scheme, true enough, for their own personal reasons.

Hi there

A colleague of mine has a FenFlyer Chocolate Labrador. She was very impressed with them and of course her beautiful doggy!

Can't comment on their breeding practices etc but as always, Di has given you some great guidance notes.

All the best,
Nic

Thank for you replies, I went today to have a look, lovely bright alert puppies, they are eye tested (both parents clear)but not Optigen tested. Father hip score 0/0 and mother 5/3. My three year old played in the garden with a dog and they got on like a house on fire. You lot are a mind of information, thank you for your time and help.

So basically positives and negatives there - but of course now you have gone to see them I expect your mind is made up - grin.

Hi there i have a puppy from this breeder and i thought that they where really good my pup is 20 weeks old nearly and has just been diagnosed with severe H,D i have been in touch and informed them of our situation and like i have been told by others that we can have a replacement pup but am afraid thats not what we want we picked her and adore her.i dont want to give them a bad rep but just becarefull that the parents are not the same as mine as she has congentital H,D which means that someone is a carrier of this. I do hope i havent said anything out of line but this condition rules our life and the amout of money we have spent its very hard.She has just started hydrotheapy at 100 a WEEK yes thats right and there is all her meds she is on and the insurance will not cover us for everthing and still waiting to here from them so we have to pay up front for stuff which is killing us.but our love for her is so strong that we are not going to give in yet.I hope i have been usefull please get in touch if you need any more info xx
