Lyndsay with Emma, Abbie & Twist May 2007
I'm a small, select breeder situated in the in the heart of the ever growing new National Forest, in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside, all of which is just perfect for wonderful walks with the dogs. I lived not far from my current home during my teens & early 20's when the National Forest was first planted & oh my how much it's grown & changed over the last 25+ years!! The dog's & I really enjoy discovering lots of the new walks.
Early 2014 saw the long awaited arrival of Tigger
, my first Shetland Sheepdog. Tigger is fantastic & slotted in with the Border Collies with ease.
My dogs are absolutely number one
in my life & every consideration is made around them. First & foremost my dogs are my much loved family pets & all of the dogs live freely in the house & very
I only breed occasionally, no more than 1-2 litters a year, with health & temperament being my number one priority. All of my dog's are fully health screened including DNA health testing. For more information please see the "Puppies
" page on my main website. I'm extremely particular on the homes my puppies go to & single line enquiries are deleted.
The dogs are looked after & fed as naturally as possible. I've been feeding raw food / the BARF diet (Bones And Raw Food) since 2003 & as well as being very happy dogs, they're much
healthier than when they were fed commercial kibble!! Although I'm still on first name terms with the Vet's, I'm thankfully no longer a regular client!! All of my puppies are weaned onto raw food & it is strongly encouraged that puppies remain on this very natural diet (it's very
easy to feed & I'll happily give all the help required to anyone
interested & of course all
new owners). Preference is always given to prospective owners with experience of dog ownership, especially Border Collies / Shelties & those who will continue with the diet/natural rearing.
It would be great if you signed my Guestbook
to let me know you've visited.
