Breeder and dog matching

We sniff out your compatible breeds and work with you to confirm your choice of dog before matching you with one of our great breeders. For peace of mind all our breeders have been screened and their dogs, fully health checked. In the unlikely event we can't find you a puppy we'll refund your deposit.
