Where are we?
Deep in rural Somerset, we are based in the land of the Glastonbury Festival, a couple of miles from Shepton Mallet with easy access from several major trunk roads.
This is a family enterprise. I have two teenaged daughters who are fully involved with the dogs. Our 'kennel' is small: currently ten dogs, all living in the house - seven Minis, two GBGVs and our toy poodle.
I trained as a zoologist, have a PhD for which I studied animal behaviour and have been 'in dogs' for more than thirty years. I work from home so, I'm here for the dogs at all times. As well as breeding dogs, I am a broadcaster of many years standing (Crufts commentator, with Frank Kane, Peter Purves and presenter Clare Balding), I write and I paint. I am a KC Assured Breeder and follow all their recommendations, including the highest standards for welfare, best practise and health testing.
How do we do things?
Come and see us and find out! Our dogs are fully integrated in social groups and are a part of our domestic life. We place a firm emphasis on their welfare and make provision for plenty of exercise & social interraction as well as the best possible nutrition and care. Our facilities are geared to their needs and designed to give them a rich and rewarding environment in which to live.

Our dogs live in a totally integrated pack, in our home and are involved with every aspect of our lives.
