We breed West Highland White Terriers from our home in a caring family environment and are opposed to puppy farms.
Our Westies and their puppies are more than just pets, they are part of our family, so we want to be sure that the puppies go to loving homes where they will be treated well.
As breeders, we aim to improve the breed with each mating, while we consider characteristics such as structure, coat and pigmentation, we consider temperament above all else.
Westies puppies are
incredibly cute and understandably they are in high
demand. In addition Westies only have small litters
(3 or 4 puppies on average) which makes them hard to come by.
As ethical breeders, we only breed our girls once per year and each girl only has 3 or 4 litters in their lifetime.
Our puppies see a Vet within a day or two of their birth, where they are given a health check. We weigh them every day to ensure they are gaining weight and monitor their health status. They then return to the Vet at 6 weeks for their first vaccination and another health check. In the meantime they are lovingly cared for by their mother and spolied terribly by us.
As soon as they are mobile, we begin the process of house training.
Through gentle persuasion and routine, they learn to do their business in the right place at the right time, which makes life easier for their new owners. They are ready to go to their new homes at 8 weeks of age. They microchipped before they leave us.
We provide details of their feeding, de-worming and flea treatment schedules as well as details on how to brush them, how to trim their nails and give basic care and training advice.
We also recommend Pet Insurance, hopefully you won't need it, but accidents do happen and Vet bills can be expensive!
It's a question we are often asked, but it is difficult to answer. If depends upon whether you are looking for a male or a female and the size of the litters. On average expect 3 to 6 months, it could be longer or you could be lucky enough to get one much sooner.
