    I put in 2 DVDs with all the photos and videos I'd taken from birth until the pups went to their new homes, an illustrated pedigree, vaccination and microchip paperwork and scanned copies of health tests on both sides. I also put in biographies of both parents (I wrote Kite's, the sire's owner wrote his), both with a few photos, and a bit about the wider family and what they do.

    As a soon to be new puppy owner what I would like is photos/video from birth. Details of socialisation that has been done, hints and tips on grooming/feeding if required. something with mothers scent on it and diet sheet/some food for a week or so.

    The idea of a family tree or info about family etc. is a nice one as well. I also think it would be nice if (with people's agreement of course) you could get even just an e-mail address for some of the pup's siblings new homes so that we could keep in contact as they will be going through the same things as me at the same time.

    Copies o health testing paperwork
    Copies o parents' kc registration
    Puppy pack (including hand typed pedigree with photos o parents & health testing ino)
    Contract o sale
    Endorsement paperwork
    Microchipping paperwork
    KC registration
    Insurance documents

    Last (irst) time round, puppy owners also got an acme whistle, puppy dummy and a couple o presents rom my own stock. I also contributed towards a 15kg sack o ood rather than just give them a small amount o ood, which they may well have changed rom.

    - A couple of kilos of the kibble the pups were weaned onto

    Oh also decided to put in a CD of puppy sounds!! Its great I got 1 from my vet for my last litter and I have been playing it to these pups since they where 4 weeks. Its all sounds like thunder and lightening, washing machine, cars, lorries etc and they say they will take all this in til they are 18 weeks so thought it would be good for the owners to continue, then these pups will not be nervous or frightened of anything...hopefully!!!

    PLEASE, PLEASE don't offer 4 weeks free insurance.There are 2 companies that do this. One is the Kennel Club - which is Agria under the KC's name. Agria have been exposed on Watchdog and in the Sunday Times for dreadful practices. The other is Pet Plan, who are actually very good.

    BUT, here's the problem. If your buyer signs up and there is a problem (like the puppy starts to show signs of illness in the first couple of weeks e.g. doesn't eat or vomits - probably simply due to change of environment) then they will be stuck with that insurer for ever - because once there's a medical history it will effectively stop them changing insurer. They may not want to stay with your 'free' company - but they'd have no option.

    You would be far better off telling them that they should take out insurance, if they are going to, to start the day they pick the puppy up. They'll almost certainly get a discount if they sign up on line. True, you won't get whatever the insurance company was going to give you but you will, at least, never get blamed for forcing someone into a position that they may be powerless to change.
