Dear Hugh, As you know we bought Freddie a miniature schnauzer from you in August 2005. Freddie has turned out to be a most wonderful dog. He is very obedient and was so easy to train. As Freddie is now seven years old Hazel an I decided to buy another puppy. Because we had been so impressed by the way that you kept your kennels we had no hesitation in contacting you again. Luckily when I contacted you in June you were expecting a litter. To cut a long story short you kept us informed as to the progress of the puppies, sending us photographs and. Regular updates. We asked you to pick a dog puppy for us which we were going to call Barney. We collected Barney from you on the 18th August and have now had him for a week. Freddie and Barney are already the best of friends. He is full of mischief as you would expect but is a lovely puppy. Hazel an I would like to thank you for all your help and also to compliment you on the outstanding condition of your kennels and the marvellous way your puppies are cared for. We have recommended friends to you in the past and will have no hesitation in doing so in the future. Hazel and I would not buy a puppy anywhere else. Thank you once again for breeding such a wonderful puppy.
Yours sincerely Hazel and Tony Andrews

Hello Mr Davies
Just thought i'd drop you a little email to let you know how my new puppy Milo, (brown and white Cavalier x Lhasa Apso purchased from you on 23/8/15) is settling in. All i can say is fantastic!! As you can see from the photos i have attached, he is doing brilliantly, getting on very well with his big brother Vinnie (Cavalier x bichon i bought from you 2 yrs ago) although, i think he is going to be a bit bigger than his big brother when he is fully grown, he is growing like a weed!!
He is developing a great character and gives lovely cwtches, both to me and his brother. I took him to my vets for a check up as suggested by you, and as expected he was given a clean bill of health. Many thanks also for keeping him with you for an extra three weeks until my annual leave began, i think this made a massive difference with his house training as he is almost fully trained in that respect. I can't thank you enough for this wonderful addition to our family. Once again it was a pleasure doing business with you, best wishes to you and your family.

Hello Hugh, With Floss' first birthday coming up tomorrow, I thought you might like an update on how she's doing. In a nutshell, she's one of the best things that has ever happened to us! She's affectionate, funny, respectful, adaptable - all rolled into one. She's great with young children and knows instinctively who in the family is good for playing with, chasing, cuddling and who to be slightly wary of! We've taken her to stay in holiday homes in Devon and Cornwall, where she has adapted to new surroundings brilliantly and has never damaged or soiled in anyone's houses. She became house-trained very quickly and still uses her crate to sleep in. You may remember that our daughter was rather wary about the news we were getting a dog - well they are absolutely besotted with each other! Our 2 teenage boys love her to bits too - the feeling is mutual. She gets a lot of admiring comments wherever we go, both when she is smartly groomed and when we let her fur grow longer and scruffier. We don't expect she'll grow much bigger now, which is fine and probably reflects her tricky early weeks of being adopted by your spaniel. She has been healthy all year. The only minor worry we had was when she ate half a fruit scone and needed the vet to take action in case she became unwell. Oh, and she quite likes chewing plastic, e.g. arms of reading glasses, doll's legs!! If you hear from anyone else who bought pups from her litter, we'd be really grateful if you could forward our details to them so we can compare notes!
Many thanks and hope things are all good with you.

This is me playing with Molly my big sister. I settled in straight away and I love my new home From Jess
Puppy was great travelling home, which took us around 6 hours and settled in straight away just as Molly did 3 years ago. It was good to see you again and all the happy puppies and totally content Mum and Dads. It's clear they still all adore you and plain to see you are the same with them. Please feel free to put this letter on your testimonials and should anyone have any doubts then give them my phone number for the reassurance that if they are looking to purchase a pup, then they are guaranteed to get a healthy happy sociable little family friend from you. It is a very long way to travel for us but that's what you do to get the best.

Hi Huw , a year ago we came to collect Pandora from you , we thought you'd like to hear how she's getting on !
Firstly ,I could have sold her over and over again , everyone she meets (and we've just travelled to Portugal ,Spain and France with her ) wants her !
She is the sweetest natured little dog ever , although she does think she's a Labrador !
She comes with me every week when I visit a residential care home for the elderly , as I'm a volunteer with the WRVS .
She draws quite a crowd !
I just want to thank you again again for such a sweet natured ,gorgeous little dog that has touched our lives .

Dear Hugh, We wanted to let you know how delighted we are with our beautiful miniature schnauzer puppy we purchased from you on 27th June. We have named her Oti (meaning 'complete' as she has indeed completed our family). The bond she has formed with our 11 year old daughter is an absolute joy. Oti is very sociable, mischievious and has captured the hearts of everyone she has met. Although we have only had her for 4 weeks she has learned so much and is eager to please - she is fully toilet trained (only 2 mishaps in total!!!), can sit on command, give her paw, loves to fetch, and is excellent on the lead. However she loves chewing shoes (the smellier the better!!) and digging up the garden. We really cannot thank you enough for bringing such a bundle of happiness into our family. We would highly recommend your kennels and were very impressed to see all your happy, healthy dogs and puppies. Please feel free to add this e-mail and photos to your testimonials.
Many thanks Gary, Heather & Millie Evans (Bridgend).

After another 5 hour journey home, Lacy slept for most of the trip but has settled in remarkably well ,she is not quite house trained but no matter, she has a boy friend in my sons golden Retriever Billy which we look after during the day and they have become the best of mates. Lacey has now doubled her weight and has had her full course of injections she loves going for walks and meeting other dogs and their owners. We am very glad to have found you and your kennel and would have no hesitation in recommending you as a responsible breeder who we will be in-touch with should we want to have another addition to the family, The reason for the last statement is the fact Lacey was for Rosemary but unfortunately she is a dads girl !! so a playmate for Lacey could be a possibility in the not too distant future. Many thanks for Lacey she is a credit to you, your kennel, and your breeding and we would recommend you to any one who wants a small breed which you had in your kennels. We will be in-touch should we need to acquire a playmate for Lacey

Just a huge thank you for Bailey our wee chon pup he is amazing. In the few weeks we have had him he was well worth the 8 hour round trip to collect him. He has proved himself to be well socialised with other dogs and children and has quickly adapted to being a valuable part of our family, I can’t now remember life without him! I would without hesitation buy another pup from you and recommend to any potential buyer.

I just thought I’d let you know how Pandora is getting on; she’s brought so much love and happiness not just our family but everyone she meets! She adores our youngest Jemima and has even turned our older two into dog lovers. The other dogs have been brilliant with her and she’s best friends with the Labrador who constantly play with her. I must say although there’s been bad press about online puppy purchasing, I couldn’t have been more impressed with you and your set up. You may just have a few more visitors from this side of the suspension bridge! Once again thank you so much for making our experience so enjoyable and for responsibly breeding our latest addition to our pack. My phone number is with Hugh if you want to speak to me.

Hi Hugh, I would like to thank you for our little boy Ragu, from our first conversation through to picking him up your care and consideration made our first puppy experience a breeze and rested two very worried minds. Having searched and scoured the Internet with nothing but concern from who to purchase from we found your site and after reading your testimonials and seeing the care and effort you take we knew we were only going to buy a puppy from yourself. We were after a Yorkshire terrier x bichon frise and that meant waiting for months until one became available, a big ask from a very impatient couple :-) but we were set on only purchasing from your kennels! Ragu is such a well rounded and healthy dog! He is lively, adventurous and extremely loving. The 3 hour journey home was full of hugs and 8 weeks later we wouldn't be without him! Can't thank you enough for your advice and peace of mind you gave us through the whole experience! I can't recommend you enough to anyone looking to buy a puppy. We will be buying any future puppy from you. Certainly found a life long customer!
Adam, Jola and Ragu

Hi Hugh and Family Just a few words to let you know that solo is growing into a fine and beautiful dog. He's full of mischief and gets on so well with Chewy and our cat Fudge, giving them 'hell' at times. We'd like to say how impressed we were with your kennels. Your standards, attention to hygiene, and the puppy’s welfare is exceptional. We will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends. We are so glad that we saw your website after a long search for another Schnauzer. You are by far the most caring kennel person we have come across. You can be rest assured that Solo will be spoilt rotten.Many thanks, Dai, Caroline, Solo, Chewy and Fudge.
