Our Services



Fully qualified LANTRA & Secretary of State approved level 3 Microchip Implanter. Unlike most Vets, I offer the tiniest chip available a ‘Nano’ which is kinder to the animal.

Service is offered in the comfort of your own home. This not only reduces the risk of any animals, especially litters of puppies & kittens being exposed to unnecessary health risks, but also the inconvenience of having to transport litters, causing undue stress to animals & the mother by a trip to the Vets.

All small animals catered for including, puppies, kittens, rabbits & ferrets. Adult animals included.

Special discounts depending on the size of the litter. From as little as £10 per animal!

What people say about us

Paula came to our home yesterday for the first training session for Bailey, our springer puppy, so she could see him in his home environment and give us the best advice for training him here. She was just brilliant, showing us how to recall and stop using a whistle, and using commands with the right tone and signals. In addition to the training skills, Paula showed us some games/activities to teach him, advised us on what we could buy to help with training and she answered all our questions (we had a lot!), giving us so much valuable advice on caring for him as he grows. We would highly recommend Paula at Hobbiton Gundogs for training, from the initial contact she has been very professional and helpful and we certainly will be continuing with sessions. We have had some success already with training on our own today and with Paula’s help we’re looking forward to seeing our pup develop into a well behaved and happy dog!

Bev McGonagle of Lancashire

Our puppy was from Paula’s dogs, Brook and Bolt, and the whole experience has been nothing short of fantastic, you couldn’t wish for anything more from a breeder.
From the first conversation with Paula we knew we had found someone who truly loves her own dogs and the puppies she sells, we got a thorough grilling and was not given a place on the waiting list until she was satisfied we were suitable for one of her pups.

The moment the puppies arrived Paula kept us updated with phone calls, text and videos, we feel like we’ve been there every step of the way.

Our boy has come away from Paula’s care practically house trained and socialised, he has a months worth of top quality food, toys, lead, blanket and a folder full of detailed info of which our vet was stunned to see and was very complementary of the start in life our boy has had.

You will certainly find puppies elsewhere for less but I very much doubt they will have been showered with such love and attention and surrounded with the best adult role models that are Paula’s dogs. This is a case of you get what you pay for!

Thank you Paula for all your time, care, patience & support.

Paul Warhurst of Cheshire

We are so happy with our puppy from Inde’s litter. He is a lovely natured boy who is coming along well. Paula was so professional, checking us and giving us so much advice.

Seeing Paula with her dogs puts you at ease as she so obviously loves them and wants the best for the new puppies.

Thanks again Paula.

Linda (Lytham)

From my first phone call to Paula to enquire about her upcoming litter of pups till the day we met and took my puppy home, I could not of been more impressed with the service hobbiton gun dogs gave me.
Paula kept us fully up to date with many photos and videos when the litter arrived so we felt included in their first 8 weeks of life.
She was so informative with all aspects of the puppies growth, feeding and health.
When we drove up to Lancashire to collect our puppy I felt like I knew Paula. It was wonderful to meet her face to face.
On picking up our pup it was very special to meet his mum and dad and Paula’s other dogs. All are absolutely gorgeous with stunning markings and beautiful temperaments.
Paula is a true professional breeder with a huge passion and love for her dogs and puppies. I would highly recommend Hobbiton gun dogs to anybody. We couldn’t be more happier with the service we received and with our puppy, who is just perfect.
If we decide to get a second one in a year or two I will definitely be giving Paula a ring.

Suzie from Surrey

Having researched for a suitable stud for a young springer spaniel bitch in my team of working spaniels I found Paula’s web site and found exactly what I was looking for in respect of the right stud dog . The stud service that Paula supplied exceeded all expectations a professional and caring in every respect .

Ted the chosen stud dog had all the right qualities I was looking for to mate my bitch with and was obviously a experienced stud dog . Paula’s kennel arrangements are first class and her devotion to her dogs shines through coupled with her cheery personality . In conclusion I can throughly recommend Hobbington stud dogs and was well worth my round trip of two hundred miles . Thanks again Paula .

Kind regards Malcolm in Cumbria . 

Perfect Stud Service

I would like to thank you Paula for the time you have taken to deal with me, as a first time breeder. From our initial stud dog enquiry you have been extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Our gut instinct was right to use your stud services for our lovely spaniel Lola, and we haven’t regretted it at all.

We travelled from Holmfirth to your premises, which are very well equipped and professionally set up. You immediately put me at ease as I was rather nervous. We had a choice of stud dogs – all of which were gorgeous, and had a good bloodline match with Lola.

You gave us lots of information, advice and recommendations in relation to gestation timings, what to look out for when whelping, tail docking, vetting potential new owners – the list goes on………..

Paula was even on hand at 11pm at night when Lola was in labour. You clearly love what you do!

I would highly recommend using Hobbiton Gundogs services to anyone, whether you are using Paula’s stud services or buying a puppy from her. She is fab. Thanks again Paula!

LF – Holmfirth

She is fab!

Just a quick note, but a very sincere ‘thank you’ for your great help with the mating of Skye, my ESS bitch. Your calm, kind but professional approach to all aspects of this mating has been really excellent. Also, the time you spent carefully checking the respective pedigrees to ensure the suitability of your dog Ted and my bitch was very impressive and comforting. That alone convinced me of your credibility and professionalism as a breeder of quality working dogs. Wendy & I (not forgetting Skye) thank you for your help and assistance and we hope that a fine litter of pups will result from the mating.

Great Stud Service!

“Hello, My name is Eric Darke (Tolkienhurst Smeagol) and I love where I live now.

My first human mum was called Paula. She made sure the people I went to live with were going to look after me properly and give me a nice life.

She asked loads of questions when they phoned her to ask if they could have me, because really she’d like to keep all of the puppies herself, so she wasn’t going to let just anyone take me away.

I had a lovely first 8 weeks with my dog mum (Inde) and dad (Ted) and all the other spaniels they live with at Paula’s house, but when I got to my new home I knew I’d be happy.

Paula was right to ask those questions and really make sure my new humans were going to keep me happy.

I’m a very intelligent pup, you know. I can do pretty much anything after being shown it a couple of times, especially if there’s a bit of sausage on offer.
If you want a clever, mostly well-behaved Springer spaniel like me, contact Paula.”

We bought Sammy (Beau) from Hobbiton and he is the most amazing dog – a real chip off the old Ted block.
