Thank you so much for Harry.  He is gorgeous and will be well looked after.  My cats are wary but not running away so think they will be okay.  Once again, thank you.

Hi Tessa,
We collected our caverpoo puppy from you 2 weeks ago, we’ve named her Cally.  We had an 8 hour journey home with Cally stopping twice for a break, Cally travelled well with no problems and settled into our home immediately.   Cally had her 2nd injection yesterday so her first experience of walking in the outside world is tomorrow.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for keeping us updated with Cally’s progress with photos and video while we were waiting to bring her home, she’s a beautiful puppy whose dearly loved not only by us but our family, friends and neighbours have all been won over by her, our grandchildren are here daily, our spare room has never been in use so much with children stopping over!
Thank you once again & our very best wishes to you and all at the kennels.
Kind Regards
Merlin has come on leaps and bounds
Thanks for my new forever home woof Merlin


Hi Tessa. Quick message to say that Angel has found her feet and loves playing with all the toys. Shes fast asleep at mo. Thankyou again for such a lovely puppy.
Best wishes



Hi Tess


I hope you are well.


I am sorry for the delay in contacting you. It has been a busy couple of weeks, settling Henry in to his new home and routine.


What a beautiful little puppy, he is just absolutely wonderful.


We took him to DeMontfort vets in Evesham on Friday for his second inoculation, and we have had two wonderful weeks settling him in. He is mostly toilet trained, going outside regularly, and he has got into a regular eating and sleeping pattern too.


He is just absolutely adorable and I want to thank you for such a wonderful puppy.


I have attached a few photos for you,


I just wanted to touch base and keep in touch.


He is an absolute treasure,


Thank you so much,



Lucy x

Hi Tessa

I hope you’re well.

It’s been almost two years since we first came down to see Mimi at two weeks old and we have been meaning to send you pictures ever since…
We have finally got round to it so please see attached some pictures of our lovely little Mimi (the last one was taken today when she was chasing squirrels and the others are of her as she has grown up!).
We get compliments wherever we go with her and cannot walk through St. Albans where we live without being stopped over and over again. She’s a very loving dog who enjoys nothing more than chasing tennis balls and squirrels then curling up between us on the settee!!

Kind regards
Georgina and Rich

Hi Tessa, just a quick message to let you know how our little socs is settling. She has taken over the whole of the house and already has her favourite chair. Settling in well and her next vaccinations are already booked. Would like to thank you so much for the care you gave her as a pup and how fantastic the service you provided while we visited  in the weeks previous to her coming home. Will keep you updated with her progress.
Many thanks
Anwen, Megs and family.

update on socs

She is 22 weeks old and as you can see she is an absolute beautiful ball of fluff. She attends puppy classes in cardigan with the Aberporth kennel club, she’s also had her first hair cut. She loves socialising and travels with us everywhere, always the first to the car!!
We would like to thank you again and will call by for you to see her one weekend.




Just to let you know she has been great. Anne



Hi Tessa

Hope you are well. Just thought I’d send you a few photos of Bella who is now 19 months old. Time has flown but it also feels like she’s been a part of our family forever. We just wondered if you’d heard from her brothers and sister at all? We’d love to know how they’re all doing. Also how her Mum is? (she’s a cavachon x toy poodle born in October 2014 if that helps!) We are tempted to get a companion for her soon, she is such a wonderful happy dog who makes us smile every day.

Best Wishes

Hi Tessa,
Just wanted to drop you a message to let you know that the little pup we had off you (now called Twinkie) is doing fine and is an absolute little diamond! She is confident, friendly and takes everything in her stride.  An total credit to your breeding.
Here is a picture of here hanging out in the sun with me on the deck of our boat which is one of her favourite places!

Hello Tessa,

I thought you might like to see a picture of Lottie with her first rosette which she won at a fun dog show for ‘most attractive puppy up to 1 year old’!

I have started taking her to a puppy class and she was completely unfazed to meet a Neapolitan Mastiff whose feet alone were bigger than her.  They were ‘little and large’ – thank goodness large was friendly!

Needless to say I adore her, even though she is going through a nuclear crocodile stage at the moment.

I hope you are well,

With best wishes,
Hi Tessa

Just wanted to let you know that Teddy, who we picked up last September, is doing really well.

He’s settled into our family and has become best friends with our cat Leo.

He has developed a lovely personality. He’s playful, energetic, sociable, affectionate and outgoing. He wants to make friends with everyone he meets. He’s really clever too & has learnt lots of tricks!

He can be a little monkey too & if he gets hold of a toilet roll our house looks like an audition for the andrex advert!

He’s so handsome too & gets attention wherever he goes! He loves nothing more than cuddles at the end of the day & he’s so affectionate.

We don’t know what we’d do now without Ted!

I’ll also send some pictures…..

All the best, Natalie, Chris, Leo & Teddy x

Have been meaning to say hi for a while and show you how beautiful my Shit Tzu Bichon Frize is…

 I love him to bits.

P.S. A request and a bit of a long shot…are you in touch with any of the owners of his 4 brothers, I’d love to see what they look like and maybe share notes – don’t go to any trouble though.

Hi Tessa

Just want to thank you for such a lovely pup.  We have had Margo just over a week now and she is so settled and such a happy puppy.  She had learnt to wee on command already and we can’t wait to start puppy training.

Thank you again

Hi Tessa
Just wanted to send you a photo of my little Fudge, 3 years old today 26/1/2016, I purchased him from you in March 2013.    He was one of the darker pups in the litter but has gradually gone lighter as I knew he would, his Dad was an apricot poodle called Puddles, and mum was a little Bichon (unfortunately I cant remember her name).
He is a lovely little chap, and loves to sit on my lap for cuddles, while watching his favourite programme on TV – Paul O’Grady at Battersea Dogs Home!!  He also loves to play with his big brother Digby the labrodoodle.
I follow your website with interest and love the crosses that you do, so cute, and I have just discovered your videos on u-tube.
I would love to know if you have news of his siblings.
All Best Wishes Linda Lewis
