Puppy Certificate - Ask Your Breeder

The RSPCA, British Veterinary Association and the 2018 Animal Welfare regulations all recommend that the breeder provides information as to the health, parentage and socialisation of the puppy. This is considered best practice whether the breeder is licensed or not. Our Breeder Records software is available to the breeder free of charge so there is no excuse for them not to provide this information. If you are purchasing a new puppy please make sure your breeder uses a system like our Puppy Certificate, It is free for any registered Breeder to use.

Please help us to eliminate puppy farming through better records.

Use the button to email your Breeder and ask them to register.

Skye Terrier

The Skye Terrier is an old breed of terrier that originated more than four centuries ago on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. He was used to hunt, following prey into their burrows then dragging them out. The Skye Terrier is a rare breed, and if exercised too often, too young, especially before 8 months, they can damage their bone growth. Jumping up and down from objects, climbing over objects, running, even long walks, are all things to be avoided for the first 8 to 10 months to prevent later problems and allow for correct closure of the growth plate.

Mammary cancer is the leading cause of death amongst Skye Terriers.
