Before you venture to view your puppy for the first time you are probably a little curious about the family you are purchasing from.
In a nutshell we are 3 generations of animal lovers who thoroughly enjoy the experience of breeding puppies for families to cherish for years.
Between us we have accrued dogs of all shapes and sizes. All our dogs are considered part of the family and live indoors with us, any girlie's that have puppies are nurtured back into tip top health and we never re home them when they get older. Any litters of puppies are raised in the family lounge in an ever expanding puppy pen, fed on a quality natural ingredient puppy food, given regular car journeys and romps on the grass when the weather is suitable.
Mum has kept dogs for many years, her first being Mitzi a black Miniature Poodle who I remember entertained us with numerous tricks when I was young. Though now in her senior years Mum is a godsend and helps with puppies when she is able or provides us with a hot meal when times are hectic.
My Youngest Daughter
My youngest daughter has followed in the family footsteps and enjoys looking after our menagerie of animals when she is home form university. She takes fantastic photographs and is a great help with the website. As a treat for doing well with her exams she has her very own cockapoo Chummy, who she misses dearly when she is away.
My love of dogs started with Mitzi and grew from there. Throughout my teens I worked at the local boarding kennels every Sunday as a kennel maid and more throughout school holidays. Apart from the useful pocket money, I gained 4 years worth of knowledge in the handling, training and caring for every breed, shape, size of dog imaginable and though hard work thoroughly enjoyed doing so. I am lucky to have a career working in conservation and a job that enables me to take all my dogs to work everyday.
How it all started...
In 1974 my Aunt, gave birth to a baby boy who sadly a few years later was diagnosed with a terminal muscle wasting disease. His love of Sophie my Dachshund sparked the idea of breeding him his very own dog, one which he could see being born and watch develop and that would be a great companion in his low times. Sophie gave birth to 3 pups, and Dave chose a boy which he named Ralph. From this first litter our passion for breeding grew especially as we could see first hand how dogs can change peoples lives and today we still get that extra buzz when one of our pups goes to a family with a child with special needs.
