We have Japanese Spitz, Pugs and Toy Poodles all ready this weekend please feel free to pop in and take a look.
Little Rascals onsite shop is open from 10am to 6.30pm daily and can cater for all your puppy needs.
Little Rascals have today had a council inspection which has been a success and our on going refurbishment plans will see this improve to an even higher standard.
We’ve put together some simple steps to help take away those first time dog owner nerves about toilet training
Positive reinforcement - Praise your puppy every time they do something right! As puppies don’t speak the same language we do, you need to ensure that your puppy is aware of their own good behaviour and begin to learn that this is desirable
No negativity - Following on from the first rule, do not punish your puppy if they get it slightly wrong. You have to remember that each new addition is a small puppy, with a small bladder and there will be some accidents along the way. They will not learn through negative response and when punished may result in the training progress going backwards
Be persistent – Until your puppy begins to learn the art of toilet training, you will have to put in time and effort praising and giving attention once they have done something desirable. “Each reward reinforces the right behaviour”
Watch for mistakes – New owners have to always be on the lookout for any little accidents and be sure to prevent them before they happen! Make sure that whenever they begin to show signs of wanting to go to the toilet, to take them outside straight away and to reward the good behaviour once it does happen
Get in a routine – Start to learn when your puppy will need to go to the toilet. This is usually first thing in the morning once they wake up, after eating or drinking and usually every few hours during the day. At these points take your puppy out and be ready to show reward
Restrict area when leaving puppy alone – from early stages the mother will have enforced for them not to dirty their bedding area, so when left in smaller spaces they will be more inclined to hold it so they don’t cause mess to the sleeping area. This must be done with caution as your puppy won’t be able to hold their bladder for very long at first and you must ensure your puppy doesn’t stay in there too long without interaction from you. Regular visits to let your puppy out will help to reinforce this training
Cleaning up accidents – When tackling accidents in the house, be aware to use enzyme-based cleaner to remove any possible trace for your puppy. Regular cleaners will remove any unsavoury smells for us, however the scent will still be present for puppy
Start from day 1 – As soon as you get your puppy home, get them familiarised with their designated toilet area. Ideally a section of garden that you know is safe and enclosed
Carrying on the training – If you have to leave puppy alone for a section of time during the toilet training process you are best ensuring that you can find someone to stay with your puppy to continue your hard work and carry on their routine
Don’t panic! – Finally, don’t panic! Toilet training is easy once you keep to your routine and begin to reward any behaviour you would like your puppy to continue
All of our puppies leave us with their first PARVO vaccination unless advised otherwise. They will require a FULL DHPPI course of vaccinations which is the new owners responsibility. The DHPPI is a course of two vaccines which are given at 2-4 week intervals.
Here at Little Rascals our team are on hand 7 days a week to help you choose the right puppy for you.
We can advise you on any of our breeds and compare with you suitability. We are more than happy to send you pictures of our available puppies upon request via email and will continue the support after you take your new puppy home.

Any questions please feel free to contact us.
Little Rascals always request that you feed your new puppy Royal Canin Mini Junior as this contains everything your puppy needs and avoids issues connected with diet changes. Royal Canin is available at most good pet stores and is a complete food and should always be fed dry.
As a guideline small puppies (Shih Tzu) will require approximately 170 to 200 grams per day measuring cups are available again at most pet stores. Large puppies such as Cockers require approximately 250 to 270 grams per day. These are guidelines only and need to be increased as your puppy grows. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
To encourage your new puppy to eat during the first few days you could add a table spoon of puppy meat to his/her diet available from most supermarkets. Plain Chicken, Ham or scrambled egg will also encourage eating.
In smaller breeds it is always beneficial to give him/her a little lick of honey during the day.
Fresh Water should ALWAYS be available to you puppy.
Toys are great for stimulation but please ensure you check the age limits before purchase, rope toys and kongs are a good choice for young and older dogs.
Avoid treats in the early months, use plain boiled chicken or ham for praising your puppy.
Please remember Little Rascals have a fully stocked shop and we can provide you with everything you need to get started at a very competitive price.

PENGUINS played a starring role at the launch of this year’s National Microchipping Month, which runs throughout June.
The penguins at London Zoo are one of 726 different types of animals there, with all except the small birds and fish microchipped and registered with Petlog.
Petlog is owned and managed by the Kennel Club, and it created National Microchipping Month to highlight the benefits of microchipping and encourage owners to chip their domestic animals.
“Thousands of pets go missing every year and many are not reunited with their owners as they lack any form of identification,” said a spokesman for Petlog. “However, those microchipped and registered with us can easily be identified and returned to their owners.”
KC spokesman Caroline Kisko said; “The penguins at London Zoo presented a unique opportunity to demonstrate the large range of animals which are able to be chipped. London Zoo obviously has to have a clear way of identifying individual animals, but it is just as important for owners of household pets to do the same in case they go missing.”
So...If you have a Penguin or for that matter any other companion friend please do not hesitate to contact us regarding microchipping!
Speaking at the British Small Animals Veterinary Association’s congress, and reported in this week’s Veterinary Record, Ms Zulch said it also had to be accepted that every puppy is an individual with its own strengths and or weeknesses
Owners should view the practice of raising puppies as educating them, rather than training them.
Puppies spend less than one per cent of their life for six weeks of their life at ‘puppy school’, and there is a risk that owners consider this is enough, said Helen Zulch, a lecturer at the University of Lincoln and consultant at the university’s veterinary behaviour clinic.
Too much emphasis is placed on teaching puppies ‘obedience’ rather than praising good behaviour, a veterinary congress has heard.
Here at Little Rascals we also have a fully stocked shop and we cater for all the needs of your new puppy.
Please feel free to pop in and browse our shop 9.30am to 6.30pm for all your puppy needs.
Please feel free to call in 10am-6.30pm no appointment needed to see our little rascals.
Most small Pedigree and designer breeds available and ready to go to their new homes.
Please see the website for latest availability all puppies are chipped, wormed, flead, vaccinated and come with a months free Petplan insurance.
Microchipping is now available at Little Rascals. £10 please call for more details.
