If you wish to advertise that you have puppies available we have a website page dedicated to assist with selling your puppies. We are giving this option a six month trial period to see if it works both for our website and yourselves. The webpage can/will be amended or removed subject to its use. The page is listed under the heading 'About Breed' then 'Puppy Register' or click here. The details required for advertising are as follows:-

    1. 1.   Your name and location. e.g. - Mr John (Jane) Smith, Norwich, Norfolk. You can also use your Affix if required in this first heading
