Coronavirus

We are in a time of declared Global Health Emergency, so sadly we are not allowing visits to the farm at this time.

We are still happy for puppies to to be reserved and will be open to conducting telephone interviews or video calls instead of visits for the time being. We hope very much that the situation will soon be controlled and things will return to normal. 

In the mean time, if you already have a puppy reserved we will work hard to keep the website pictures regularly updated.

We are pleased to have made an agreement with a friend of ours who delivers animals professionally, and he is able to deliver any of our puppies to any address in the country, and will do so in a totally contactless way. We will talk through our puppy packs over the phone with the new owners so everything is made ready before puppy's arrival, and puppy, paperwork & puppy pack will all be delivered to your door. The cost for this is arranged by us with Chris the driver on your behalf, and is very reasonable. Delivery drivers are considered key workers so legally there is no problem with this arrangement, and there is the added benefit of knowing that the job will be carried out safely and professionally. 

Although there are troubling times ahead at least we can try to make the best of the situation by staying home and having lots of quality time with your new puppy, bonding, playing and training.

Meet the team;

Myself and my husband (Liz & Graham Mugleston), with our two oldest daughters.

Our kennels assistants Josie & Rohan, who help with all the doggie jobs, grooming, and playing with puppies!

 

I'm sad to say our personal assistant Polly, who helped with the emailing and telephone calls has now left us, so until we find a replacment for her (which will be a hard job), I'm afraid replys to emails are going to be a little few & far between. If you need to contact us please do call instead of emailing.

While we do our best to answer calls, messages as promptly as possible, we do have 3 children under 4 years old, and a busy farm of livestock, as well as the dogs to look after, so we are always very busy and often outside. If at first you don't succeed, keep trying or leave a voice mail. 7pm - 9.30pm is the best time to catch us.

If you are looking to make an appointment to visit us, we are happy to arrange this any day from 10.30am onwards, except for on Sundays, we like to keep Sunday as our family day. 

We would respectfully ask anyone coming to visit us, to please not visit any other breeding establishments on the same day. Please also try to make sure that your footwear and clothing are as dog-free as possible to reduce the chance of bringing any virus or infection on to the farm. Please rearrange to come another day if you have been in recent contact with a poorly dog.
