Buying a Sparkenhoe GSP or Bracco Italiano puppy
Before being considered as the prospective owner of a Sparkenhoe German Shorthaired Pointer or Bracco Italiano puppy, you will be asked to visit Laura and her dogs at their Leicestershire home.
You will want to make sure she is the right breeder for you and similarly, Laura will want to know you understand the commitment you are about to make. After this, your name will be added to the Sparkenhoe ‘waiting list’.
All bitches are scanned at 4 weeks to verify the pregnancy, and to see how many puppies are expected. When the bitch’s pregnancy is confirmed, Laura will contact you to let you know the expected DOB of the puppies. Once safely delivered, you are encouraged to visit the pups as frequently as possible. This is particularly important if you have children … after all, there is nothing so exciting as a brand new puppy!
When the puppies are 6 weeks old, they are assessed by Laura and allocated to their prospective owners. At 8 weeks, your new puppy will be ready to go home with you.
All the puppies bred by Laura Angus are well-socialised when they go to their new homes at 8 weeks old.
The puppies are born in the house and are very much part of the family. They are used to all the trappings and hustle and bustle of everyday life, including washing machines and vacuum cleaners.
Laura believes it is important for the pups to experience life in a family environment. None of the puppies are kennelled or live outside. The puppies are used to being handled by all Laura’s family and friends.
In short, when you choose a Sparkenhoe puppy, you are guaranteed a well-balanced dog which will revel in the hubbub of your family life.
