Kensington Gate Collies is in the fortunate position that our puppies are sought after and we have always had more reservations than puppies. This tells us that we are doing something right. We truly appreciate that people want puppies, however for the next couple of planned litters, we will not take reservations at all.
The purpose of every breeding here in our kennel is to produce something that is valuable for future of the breed and our kennel. When there is a reservation list, the pressure is on as soon as the litter is born. Puppy buyers will naturally want to know if there is a puppy for them and which one will be theirs. Normally, it takes 5-7 weeks before they know which puppy they will get to take home. This is understandably a great test on their patience. Because temperament and personality is an important deciding factor in picking puppies for ourselves and for placing puppies in the right homes, it is impossible to allocate them sooner.
In order for us to choose our puppies without any pressure, we have therefore decided not to accept any reservations from prospective buyers for the next two litters. As they develop and we know that they are not what we need to keep, they will be announced for sale one by one.
