Welcome to Christinwood, breeders of German Shepherd Dogs and Labrador Retrievers.
My passion for these two wonderful breeds, drives my aim to produce pups of exceptional quality, with sound temperaments and outgoing and friendly personalities.
I am very proud to have been awarded Kennel Club Assured Breeder status and welcome and adhere to the strict health and breeding guidelines laid down by the scheme.
All Christinwood breeding is carried out with the well being of each individual breed in mind, endeavouring to maintain the true ethos of both breeds - the ability to move properly, work when required and be of sound temperament.
I believe that only healthy, happy bitches can produce healthy, happy pups. Our dogs live with us as members of our family and they are loved unconditionally.
Although Christinwood breeding is on a small scale, every detail is given the fullest attention. I will use only the best and most carefully selected Stud Dogs on my girls, health screening results and careful research play a huge role in my choice of Stud. I will not breed from dogs who I know have health problems, no matter how pleasing to the eye they might be.
Christinwood puppies are very well socialised, raised within the family environment and played with all day, every day by myself, my sons and their friends and as many other visitors as we can muster! Puppies are raised hearing all the sounds of a busy household, and by the time they leave for their new homes have been for a car ride, experienced visiting the vet, met other members of the canine family and will have begun to get used to a collar and lead.
Once you have decided to make one of my pups a member of your family, I encourage you to visit and play with the puppies regularly, helping to form an early bond between you and your new pup. These visits give you the opportunity to see your puppy developing and give you the chance to ask any questions that you have about raising and caring for your new addition.
All pups are KC Registered, Insured, Wormed, Micro-Chipped and Vet Checked and leave for their new homes with food and a Puppy Pack containing all relevant KC Papers, Diet Information and Advice sheets. I expect all new owners to sign a Contract of Sale, ask me for advice if they need it, send me regular updates and photos and accept that I am very soppy about my pups!
I am always available to discuss future breeding plans and welcome visits to meet us and our canine family. Please feel free to give me a ring.
