We are excited to announce the second litter between Magnavalley Cornishman and Abbeystead Pleasure. This pairing has been undertaken, due to the success of the health and personalities of that first litter. Both dogs have incredible temperaments. Dad is an award winner, while Bella has shown herself to be a brilliant family dog, and unofficial companion dog to the owner’s daughter. We were so impressed with that litter we kept one of her sons and he can be seen at a puppy viewing.

The puppies are being brought up in a home environment with a cat, a young relative that visits and will before leaving, have worked their way through the Puppy Culture learning and support program.

Each puppy will be KC Registered and endorsed not for breeding or export. However, these endorsements can be lifted after hip and elbow scoring and they are 2 years of age. Results must be suitable.

???? KC registration documents.
???? Copies of 5-generation pedigree.
???? Vet checked
???? Microchipped.
???? Wormed with Panacur at 4 and 8
weeks old.
???? Flea treated.
???? Puppy pack and contract.
???? Starter supply of puppy food.
???? Puppy’s favourite toy.
???? 1 Days supply of puppy pads.
???? A comfort blanket with scent from mum and siblings to help ease the transition.
???? Lifetime support and contact from us, the breeder of the Bitch, Abbeystead Pleasure.

We believe that these things will help to make the puppy’s transition into your forever homes as smooth as possible.

The puppies are reared in a home environment, with around-the-clock attention and no expense spared. They are being brought up using Puppy Culture (please see our website for details), alongside the Poop School Training Course. Although the latter does not guarantee house training on arrival it does set good foundations for success.

You can view the puppies initially via video call along with their mother in their living environment. You will also have a total of two visits, one to choose at between 4-6 weeks, and one to pick up at 8 weeks.

Please note we will be asking questions to assess your suitability. Please make sure you have time to commit to a puppy, and that the family does not have any allergies. We would prefer at least one member of the family to either be able to take the dog to work or be working from home. I will be looking for active homes, with suitable gardens etc. Therefore, we will require you to demonstrate that your living routine and environment will enable a new puppy to thrive and be a valued member of the family.
ID will be required before any deposit is taken, or any visits.

Puppies will be ready to leave for their forever homes when 8 weeks old (around the middle of July) after a full vet check and microchipping.

Once chosen, a non-refundable deposit will be needed to secure your choice.
However, we will not accept any deposits until we have met in person.
