Recommendations to Breeder's

Please tattoo and microchip each pup before placing them in their new homes. It is very difficult and expensive for individual owners to get their pups tattooed and/or Micro chipped and protects you from the buyer switching pups and/or making false accusations about the pup not being the correct pup.

The ideal and most reasonable tattoo equipment available for tattooing small pups that will remain readable when they are adults, is available at www.bassequipment.com  .  We recommend using green ink (roll-on or paste) and tattooing them with three digits at 5 weeks or older ( most breeders tattoo the last three digits of the microchip number.

We also recommend Micro chipping every pup before placing them. We recommend the he Mini-Pro  ID Microchips (smallest microchip) are available direct wholesale from Microchip ID Systemes at www.microchipidsystems.com and are automatically registered to you the breeder and you can contact a person if the pup is lost and found. Buyers can easily register the chip in their name online for just $19.95 for a Life-Time.

If you purchased a Setter pup without Tattoo or Microchip or are transferring a Setter to IPDBA, it is actually cheaper to purchase the Tattoo 0-9 numbers, ink and a microchip yourself using the above companies.


1. Only a "Llewellin Setter" bred with "Llewellin Setter" will result in "Llewellin Setter"

2. A "Llewellin Setter" bred with "Russian Llewellin Setter" will result in "Russian Llewellin
    Setter" offspring.

3. "Llewellin Setter" bred with a "English Setter", will result in "English Setter" offspring.
