We’ve had Daphne for a week now and she has settled in really well. She is cheeky and funny and fits right in with the family. Thank you so much.


Best puppy ever

Hi Tessa, thought it is time to write and tell you how happy we are with Nina, We bought her home on Monday 22nd June at eight weeks and she has been a joy ever since. As you know she is the second Weechon we have adopted from you and she has not disappointed. When our Luna passed away I thought we could never replace her, but I must say Nina although different in character, is such a perfect girl.
I cant thank you enough and I tell everyone what a wonderful breeder you are and would not think of adopting a puppy from anyone else.
Thank you once more

Roma and John.


Buddy the Yorkiepoo

So we have had Buddy a little Yorkiepoo with us now for 6 weeks and we can’t remember life before him. He is a wonderful adition to our home and my daughters just love him. Thank you Tessa for such great updates over lockdown with photo’s to keep my kids happy! Tessa and Castellan House Kennels have been great. Thanks so much


In love

We got noodle in lockdown after looking for a puppy for a long time, and it was the best decision we ever made. Not just is she adorable but her temperament is great. She loves cuddles and pinching our socks😂 If anyone is thinking of buying from Tessa all I would say is- go for it!!! She is an amazing breeder. She loves getting muddy on walks and meeting new people and dogs

Hi Tessa My parents had

Hi Tessa

My parents had Pearl from Tessa in 2010 and she has been the most prefect dog for our family.

I am now looking for a puppy of my own and Tessa is my only choice for a breeder. I am really looking forward to welcoming a new castellan house puppy into our family soon.

As you can see Pearl is getting in as much rest as possible to prepare herself for a new mate.

Hi Tessa,I just wanted to

Hi Tessa,
I just wanted to let you know how Freddie is settling in. We have had him now for 5 weeks. He is such a happy and loving little pup. He loves the attention/fuss and he loves people. He has made himself at home straight away and the children adore him. My son loves him and he is so much more confident around other dogs since. Freddie has definitely helped him overcome his fear.
Thank you so much for all your help and advise throughout.
Many thanks,
Deborah and family

The best cheeky chap ever

We picked up Merry in early August (2020) having been waiting for the right time to get a puppy for years, we’re now about 6 weeks later and we now can’t imagine life without him! Merry is a very happy, cheeky, playful and loving miniature schnauzer who has surprised us with how quickly he is able to learn new skills (place to go toilet, sit, lay, shake, stay, lead control, etc.) and how quickly he’s learning the boundaries (only attempted to escape the garden once).

The experience we had from reservation to collection with Tess was fantastic, as we already knew it would be from family having dogs from her in the past.

We look forward to many happy years ahead with Merry and suspect we will be back for a little brother for him before long!

Jessie, our yorkiepoo

jan marshall


Just want to let you know, Jessie had her 2nd injection yesterday and is doing amazing. I seriously can’t thank you enough for our little darling. She is such a joy and has settled in so well and her colouring and markings are beautiful. She loves the back garden and knows when she needs to attend to business but still has the odd wet accident but then she’s only 11 weeks old. Any way thank you again. X

Amazing boy

Hi Tess We finally got Henry in November after patiently waiting for 5 months so glad we did. He’s settled in really well absolutely brilliant with the children very gentle and loving. He’s very clever and doesn’t like to be far away from any of us. Tess was amazing and kept us well updated with Henry’s progress. Thank you so much Tess you’ve completed our family.


Off to Crufts 2020

Hi Tessa

We are delighted that Pearl has qualified for Crufts 2020 last month at 8 months of age. Thank you again for letting us have her from you.

We are pleased that both Pearl and her parents are clear for MAC after having their health tests done too.

Thanks again

Fantastic service and a beautiful puppy!

Absolutely fantastic service from Tessa, our beautiful boy is now 5 months old born 2nd August 2020.
Hes a true softy and a gorgeous pup. He truly makes us smile every day.
Thank you so much for giving us that gorgeous puppy we so wanted for so many years!


Thank you so much Tessa!

We have only had little Noah for just under a week now, but he is already very much a part of our family. We cannot imagine life without him. He is absolutely perfect and just soooo cute! I have been looking for another dog for a long time now, since our last Westie passed a few years ago. I never thought I could love another dog again, but little Noah has proved me wrong.
We were very lucky with Noah settling in straight away and lucky for us he is very food driven so toilet training is not soo bad. Tessa was great throughout and sent regular pictures and updates. We weren’t able to collect Noah ourselves, due to lockdown but managed to secure an excellent puppy courier. We cannot thank Tessa enough for blessing our lives with Noah. If we ever decided to increase our family again with a brother or sister for Noah, we would definitely go to Tessa again.
Thank you again Tessa!


Puffin is the best

Dear Tessa,

We can’t thank you enough for our lovely Puffin, the most delightful little creature.
She is confident, happy and utterly loving.
We have had no issues, from the start she settled very well, and continues to be the most wonderful dog we could ever wish for.

Warmest Wishes

Birthday boy!

Hi Tessa,

I Just wanted to send a quick message with a photo of our lovely Teddy on his second birthday. I can believe how quick the time has gone. He’s grown into a really beautiful dog with a fantastic nature. He is so gentle and affectionate and is such a massive part of our family. Thank you so much for giving us such a lovely puppy!

With best wishes,

We picked up Derek in

We picked up Derek in August 2020 and since day 1 he’s brought so much joy into our lives. He’s just the best puppy we could have asked for. He has a great personality, he’s very clever, a bit stubborn at times, but so gentle and loving. He never wants to leave our side and loves cuddles. He’s so easy to train and has learnt so much in the last 4 months with us. We couldn’t be more grateful for him.

In the picture, he’s just had his first big boy cut 🙂

Nancy the Schnoodle

Hi Tessa,

I thought I would send you a quick email one week on from when we collected our snoodle Nancy. She has settled in really well and is so calm and loving. So far nothing has phased her and she is really adapting to family life well. Clearly you have done a great job of socialising her as she hasn’t shown any fear at all. I hope her brothers and sisters have all found homes too.




Highly Recommend Castellan House Kennels

We had Mollie , our cairn crossed with a toy black poodle ,delivered to us 15th December 2012.
We had popped down on a 6 hour round trip to meet her when she was about 3 weeks old . What a delight she is . Independent ,playful,very mischievous when she was a puppy. Her favourite thing was stealing used pants or socks which quickly taught the family to pick up clothes !
She loves children especially if they kick a football for her .
I would highly recommend Tessa . Her love of dogs and the care she gives them is obvious.
Thankyou is much for our adorable Mollie . Xxx


Can’t imagine life without him!

Our Ralph has just turned one. We have had the most amazing year with our gorgeous dog. He has made our lives so happy. Can’t thank you enough Tessa.


Hi Tessa, We collected Bernie

Hi Tessa,

We collected Bernie on the 22nd of June and thought we would give you a little update. It’s great to see Bernies brothers and sisters on here too- Nina and Biscuit.
Bernie is the best dog we could ever have hoped for! He’s absolutely amazing – a little mischievous but we wouldn’t change him for the world! Thank you so much for giving us such a great dog.


An amazing puppy and an amazing experience

Maisie is nearly 8 months old now which is just crazy! But she has grown up to be the best puppy ever, she is full of character – she definitely has a voice on her!! and is just loving her life! Can’t not recommend Tessa enough and Chris was amazing too!



We are delighted with our new addition. He is beautiful and a real character who has settled quickly into his new home. He is adored by all. Tessa was brilliant all the way through lockdown and kept in regular contact, updating us on the pup’s progess.
Thank you so much. Really cannot thank you enough.
A very happy family. 🌈🐾🌈


Beautiful boy

We have had Biscuit since the 22nd June. He really is an amazing boy, very loving and laid back. He is particularily great with our daughter and is always making our day.
It is also lovely to see one of Biscuits sister’s Nina from the same litter on here 🧡


The most wonderful puppy we could have wished for

Bronte came home with us two weeks ago and from the start she settled in really well no sleepless nights marvellous appetite and already signs of becoming a real character. Thank you Tessa at Castellan Kennels She is a dream and we can’t imagine being without her.
