Gorgeous Dylan

We bought a little girl from Tessa over 14 years ago but sadly lost her last summer. After lots of photos and e mails we picked up our confident little boy last week and are delighted at how sociable and easy to adjust he has been.
We are looking forward to making many happy memories together.
Thank you Tessa and your team x

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

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

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

Fabulous, funny and feisty!

Beti is just brilliant – absolutely everything my family and I could have wished for. She settled in really quickly and has become an integral part of family life. We all adore her. She’s bold, feisty and brave, playful, tolerant (7 young grandchildren!!!) super- affectionate and even reasonably obedient and intelligent. Honestly Tessa, we couldn’t ask for more. A massive thank you!

Big thank you for our beautiful girl

Hi Tessa
Dotty is now one and we could not have wished for a more beautiful, funny, clever, loving little girl. She makes us smile every day.
She has been amazing since day one, only 2 little accidents in the house from the moment she arrived home.
She is an absolute joy and a credit to you, her mum and dad. Amazing girl. Can not recommend you highly enough.
Thank you
Kathryn

She’s a joy!

We first came to know Tessa in 2005 as the breeder of Elvis, our beloved Pugalier. He’s 16 now and we’re thrilled to have happily introduced our pup Wilma to him as a new playmate in his golden years. Wilma (Westiepoo) is an absolute joy. She joined our family in July 2021 and has settled in beautifully. She’s smart, easy going and has us laughing constantly. We’re so happy with her. Returning to Tessa as a wonderful breeder was a no brainier. Fantastic service and excellent communication. Thank you!

Polly is a joy

Hi Tessa
We hope you are well.
We thought we’d drop you a line to tell you how our shichon Polly is doing and send you a picture.
Polly is an absolute joy, she is so loving and everyone who meets her falls in love with her affectionate nature.
She is very calm and also comfortable in her own space….often we don’t see or hear from her for a couple of hours while she has a little Polly time in a quiet corner, other times she is a bundle of energy; enjoying some rough and tumble and chasing her toys.
She loves the outdoors and is 4 weeks into puppy training classes; she’s happy mixing with the other puppies and being a clever girl, she’s doing very well.
We are so delighted with Polly; she has added so much to our lives.
Thanks

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,

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 🧡

Thank you!

Ernie is now 5 months old and everyday he brings pure joy to our family, he is such a happy boy and had such a funny character.

I cant recommend Castellan Kennels enough, they were amazing and kept us updated regularly on Ernies progress when we couldn’t see him due to Covid.

We will defiantly be coming back here when we get a friend for Ernie. Highly recommended!

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

Part of the family – I always wanted 4 children!

I had been in touch with Tessa for about 18 months and she let me know when she had some new pups, but none was the one we were looking for. Little did I know my life was about to change forever !!!
Having never had a dog I was extremely anxious when meeting our gorgeous cavapoo for the first time. Tessa filled me with confidence however and helped me every step of the way. On arriving home he already knew where to go to the toilet and despite the occasional accident he has been a star !! He clearly had a very good start in life as he loves being around other people and is happy and sociable! We have had Nuno for nearly 4 weeks now and we cannot remember life without him! He is a much loved member of the family and has already given us much joy. He loves playing at the beach and is a source of constant admiration by others. We of course recommend Castellan kennels and the great work of Tessa!
Thank you – I never expected to be a dog owner but with the encouragement of
my children, the hard work of Tessa and the sheer delight I have in our puppy, I am absolutely loving it!

Bella is beautiful! She is now 18 weeks old.

We picked up Bella our Cavapoo February 2021. Tessa was so nice from start to finish of collection. Due to COVID we did not visit prior, however we spoke with Tessa on the phone and received weekly updates and pictures.
Picking her up was easy. Everything was ready for us. We had all the relevant paperwork and a lovely blanket and food.
Our family feels complete. She is wonderful with our nieces and nephews and just loved by everyone she meets. She is so well behaved and training has been a pleasure.
I would highly recommend a Cavapoo for a loving family.
Thank you Tessa, we are really thankful to you for picking us to have our girl. One day hoping to get her a brother or sister 🐶

Thank you Tessa for our gorgeous puppy

We had Sophie two weeks ago from Tessa and we can’t get over how well she has settled in and how well she interacts with other family dogs and children.
We previously had a dog from Tessa so she was our only choice for a breeder and we highly recommend her. Tessa kept us fully updated with photos and videos and was there to answer all our questions. We also used Chris to deliver Sophie. He was so professional and really looked after Sophie during her journey.

This is Twiglet a 14

This is Twiglet a 14 week old male Wauzer with is Friend Pepsi an 8 year old female wauzer. Both from Castellan House Kennels. We have had Pepsi since a pup and we’re so pleased with her, we couldn’t resist getting her a little playmate.
Twiglet has settled in to family life and his new home really well.
Pepsi and him have become great friends although he is sometimes a little energetic for her, they get on so well.
We’ve had lots comments out on walks about how cute they look together. They are great natured little dogs and a lot of fun to be with.
A big Thanks to Tessa and the team 🙂

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!

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.

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

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. 🌈🐾🌈

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.

Regards

We went back to get Darwin a Sister

We got Darwin (Poochon) in 2016 and he’s was so amazing! We decided to go back nearly 3 years later and get Clara our Miniture Shnauzer, they are both super friendly, laid back and lovely natured pups. I would definitely recommend for anyone wanting a puppy.

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 🙂

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.

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.

A huge thank you

Hi Tessa! I cannot thank you enough for all of your help and support. Tino is the most lovely puppy and we are blessed to have him. He loves going for walks and receiving plenty of cuddles from everyone. I could not recommend Castellan House Kennels enough to anyone wanting a new addition to the family. The support from you has been absolutely wonderful and your kindness is unmatched. Thank you very much for everything!

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!
