Are you a small scale breeder that goes that extra yard in Oxfordshire? Prime time TV prog doing a piece on best place to buy a dog and wanting to film to contrast puppy farm rearing with a really good breeder. They'll be filming this week and ideally you'll have a litter at the moment if at all possible!
To recap: We need someone that goes that extra yard, health testing, rearing in the home and socializing and really loving their dogs. Ideally very small scale and very fussy.
Please post far and wide and ask breeder to email me with more details. Brilliant opportunity to educate the public!
Thank you to everyone who got in touch, I passed on your details to the programme.
Watch out for an upcoming item on breeding on the One Show on BBC1.
I was aware of a few sad extremely bitter folk who gave people grief who re-posted this appeal - who were urging good breeders not to get in touch - for example see the comment on this blog. Quite why they wanted to stop the BBC One Show doing a powerful item comparing and contrasting puppy farm rearing to the best home rearing leaves me speechless! The item is nothing to do with us, I was just helping the researcher identify a really good breeder who reared in the home rather than in kennels and that's what we believe to be the ideal. The researcher had originally gone to the Kennel Club but they'd only given them large breeders with kennels, hence us picking up the call and coming to the researchers aid!
