Miniature Schnauzer


imageDear Tessa

We wanted to let you know how our lovely little miniature schnauzer is. We had her from you back at the end of June and called her Lola. She settled in after a few days and is now a much loved member of our family. She adores our young children, is intelligent, obedient, sociable and very loving but she is also a bag of mischief!! She always has lots of attention from people when we are out walking her and everyone who has met her completely loves her, us most of all.

She stayed for a week at a kennels whilst we went on holiday, and they didn’t want to hand her back! She made such a fuss of us when we finally collected her! She has been bathed and groomed and was really well behaved. If we get her a companion we will be back to see you for definite.

Attached is a picture we took of Lola a week or so ago. Thank you for helping us complete our family. We really can’t imagine life without her now.

With best wishes,
The Cotty Family, Caerphilly.

Hi Tessa,

Must tell you, met my old boss yesterday in town where I live and whilst
we were talking it transpires that she bought her miniature schnauzer
from you too!  Small world eh?  Anyway, she said that her little dog is
4 now and she said that he is the most amazing dog she has ever had.
She actually said that he may have an identity problem as he thinks he’s
a human as she has always treated him like her baby (I for one sort of
get that 😉 ).  Anyway, she raved, along with me about you and your
kennels and I just thought you ought to know how much people think of you.

All the best and have a great day Tessa – enjoy the sunshine!

Hi Teresa my name is Jessica Morgan I don’t imagine you’d remember as I know you deal with a lot of people but about 4 years so we got our wonderful little dog from you, he’s doing great but on the rare occasions he’s alone he’s getting lonely and we’re thinking it maybe a good time to look at getting a friend for him.We’d be looking for the same as him so a miniature schnauzer x bichon frise boy, I noticed on your site that you may have a litter of these due sometime soon and I was wondering if you could tell me ruffly when they might be due/ready and how much one would be likely to cost? We do live a little way from you so last time you sent us photos and we were able to pick Merlin and send you the deposit, if you still allow this that would be great for us.

Look forward to hearing from you, as soon as we decided to get a second dog we wanted to contact you, we couldn’t be happier with Merlin every where we go people want to keep him. I’ve attached a picture showing you how he is now (the woolier coat is when he’s due clipping and in the top corner he’s laying in the clean towels warm out of the dryer which he loves!)
Thanks for your time, Jess

RILEY – mini schnauzer x bichon frise

 Hi Tessa, 
I would like to extend a massive and heartfelt “thank you!” for providing us with the gorgeous ‘Riley’, our delightful Chonzer, who I bought from Castellan Kennels some four years ago!!  The reason it has taken me so long to get in touch is because it has only been quite recently that I have been able to download photographs from my phone to my laptop . . I have always been quite useless with gadgets – it must be an age thing!

Riley is loved by all who meet him . . he was a real character when we initially met him with his mum ‘Lottie’ and he has continued to exude charm and lovliness wherever he goes.  He is a super-playful little dog and extremely loving.  He has bags of energy and is full of mischief.  He has brought such joy to the household!

Thank you so much once again for the wonderful gift of ‘Riley’ who is a much loved member of our family.  I would thoroughly recommend a Chonzer to anyone who is looking for a puppy – they are just the most friendly, loving and adorable little dogs you could ever wish for!  I have recommended Castellan Kennels to everyone I know who is looking to purchase a puppy . . you are a wonderful establishment!

Warmest Wishes,
Claire Lloyd
