About us

We are located in rural North Yorkshire in 14 acres of stunning scenery, on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.  Here our dogs during the day enjoy the freedom of our paddocks and gardens where they get loads of attention from us. 

 

We have 4 Highlands and some sheep to keep the grass under control and some chickens for fresh eggs, which is great when we have a litter of puppies.

 

We are very passionate about our dogs and this shows in all of our dogs, they have great temperaments, which to us is a priority. We are not a show kennel and our dogs have a great outdoors life, they enjoy lots of free exercise and a natural healthy diet with the odd rabbit or hen if they are quick enough !!

 

All of our Newfoundlands have hip scores well below the breed average, in fact we have 2 of our girls with perfect hips 0/0 , in fact most of them are single figures.  We now elbow score and heart test all our dogs.  Our Veterinary Cardiologist visits us at home to do this procedure, much less stressful for the dogs.  We also cystinuria test where necessary.  We have our own 2 stud dogs Boris and Bruno who are available to approved health tested females.

 

Irish Wolfhounds are a wonderful breed, they are the gentle giants of the dog world and are wonderful family companions.  All our wolfhounds are heart tested by our Veterinary Cardiologist.  We have our own 3 stud dogs.  We have also introduced some new blood lines from Europe in the past year, both males and females and shall continue to do so. 

Ed Bulman of Mile House Veterinary Centre in Northallerton has been looking after me and my dogs for 10 years.
