The rest of the site is worse than poor. No real information on any of the breeds they sell, and a jokey page 'written' by one of their stud dogs who seems to be having a ball if he really exists!

They are located in Wales, so that should ring a few alarm bells.

There are no dates on there anywhere..... The site could have been made ten years ago or ten minutes ago. I actually hope it's all out of date and these people aren't breeding any more, but what do you bet they still are. Ten stud dogs and that many litters must mean at least ten or more bitches, I wonder if any of the dogs they show so proudly (no registered names of course, and all males none of the girls!) are still alive?

Click on Cockers in the main menu and you're brought to a Springer page with some nervy looking springer pups in a corner of a brick shed :(

On the about us page they say that you can get a video of your pup if you can't travel to see it and that all the dogs are vaxed and socialised - that's a hell of a lot of puppies to socialise :(
They say they supply puppies to discerning households in UK and throughout Europe - alarm bells :mad:

On once page they say puppies are vaxed at 8 weeks ready to go at 9 weeks and on another they are vaxed at 6 weeks ready to go at 8 weeks :confused:

It does say you can visit with or without an appointment - interesting if any one is in the area ;)

Aaah right. I thought that seeing as a pug x beagle is a 'puggle' that a puggle then crossed with a shih tzu would be a 'shuggle'. :rolleyes:

These puppy farms and dealers thrive unfortunately because fools and their money are soon parted and we live in a society with a supermarket mentality. They don't want to go to a breeder, they just want a puppy off the shelf to fulfil their desire to have one, much the same as buying a bottle of perfume or a designer handbag etc. :(

Usually it is, but this person seems to think that shuggle sounds better :rolleyes: :mad:

Very much so sadly.

Noticed that they sell purebred pups as well . . . Cairns, Cavaliers, Pugs, Schnauzers, Cockers, Westies, Yorkies, Shih Tzus . . . . . didn't see that mentioned in the thread title, so thought I'd mention it.

Did anyone notice this "Kennel Club registration where appropriate is available for a small additional cost."

I believe I should be as outraged by the breeding of these as by the breeding of the crosses that they sell, considering the numbers and most likely the lack of care given.

Obviously a place I'd like to see shut down as I have not a lot of patience for commercial breeding.

It’s very sad that places like this exist…I know where this place is, its in Pembroke and it’s a very large but well polished (on the public side)...Puppy farm ….
.
It’s sad that the likes of them make people come out with phrases such as. “They are located in Wales, so that should ring a few alarm bells”…
