Litters are seldom bred at Cremino as we only breed when we want to keep a puppy ourselves, either for the showring or to maintain our lines. All our breeding stock is tested under the British Veterinary Association/Kennel Club health schemes for hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia and hereditary eye disease to try and ensure that all stock, whether they be show dogs or great family pets, are as healthy as possible. Breeding stock is also DNA tested for prcd-PRA, EIC, HNPK, CNM and SD2 or are classed as hereditarily clear for these diseases by parentage.
For those fortunate to obtain a Cremino puppy, we offer a lifetime of support and assistance.
We are members of the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme and adhere to all aspects of their guide to best breeding practice.
In 2019, we were awarded the rarely achieved Accolade of Excellence.
All puppies bred at Cremino are endorsed with the Kennel Club, in accordance with its Regulations, restricting the registering of its progeny and the issue of an export pedigree. This means that you will not be able to register any puppies from a dog bred by us, or to send it abroad without first referring back to us. This is done to protect our puppies and to ensure that our line, which has taken over 35 years to build up, continues to produce healthy stock.
We may agree to remove the breeding endorsement provided the dog has been examined under the relevant health schemes, and the results are acceptable to us. Unless an owner is moving abroad, it is unlikely that we would remove an export restriction.
