Border Collie and Golden Retriever Puppies
and General Puppy Information


We do not believe that ownership of a puppy is something to be undertaken lightly. We are not commercial breeders, every border collie and golden retriever puppy we breed and raise is important to us for all of its life. Dogs and puppies are not playthings for children nor are they educational toys, they are living, loving, dependent, individuals who have the right to care, attention, love, socialisation, education, understanding and tolerance for all their faults and failings for all of their lives.
If you disagree with this ethos please look elsewhere for a puppy.

We hope that the information and advice that we offer here will be helpful not just to our puppy owners but to anyone who is considering or has embraced the responsibility of sharing their lives with a "little furry person", after all - they are only human.

Details of our puppies or litters planned cannot be accessed except via our puppy page (see links below) which explains the terms and conditions under which we home our puppies.
