Always delighted to have our babies back and see just how well they are doing; as once again we held an Achouffe Puppy Party for all of our puppies no matter what their age or breed.  We chose the pretty village of Skillington situated just off the A1 near Grantham as our venue which was convenient for most.  Owners travelled from as far afield as Hertfordshire, Essex, Portsmouth, Sheffield, Cambs and even Ireland in order to attend – and we cannot thank them enough, we love all our puppies and their owners, we are so proud of them.

It was a brilliant afternoon with beautiful dry sunny weather and just a touch of wind making it ideal for all the dogs ..  we incorporated several activities including some dummy retrieving, a mock dog show (with Championship Show Judge and Author  – Mrs Gillian Burgoin in attendance to assess participants) ducking sausages etc.. having retired to the Village Hall to tuck into a fabulous lunch with lots of cakes (some made by our generous puppy owners – yummy) and party hats etc.. everyone had a super time and the dogs were not only well behaved but suitably and happily exhausted as they left for home with their party bags..

Don’t just take our word for it though, read some of their owners testimonials of the day..

Thank you for organising such a wonderful afternoon on Sunday.  Peter and I really enjoyed the whole experience meeting the other owners & Molly’s brothers, sisters, aunties & uncles, taking part in the activities and especially winning the ‘Show’.  We are very proud parents!!

Thank you for all your very hard work, it is much appreciated.  We hope to see you soon ..

Thank you so much for today, once again your hospitality and effort to organise these events for us is truly amazing and we all had so much fun!! It was so lovely to see everyone and their pooches again, it really felt like a family reunion. All the dogs were amazing and to see them all running around, growing up and learning together is something very special indeed. Really hope to see you again soon.

Big love to you both


Pooped!!!Thank you SO much for today, all my boys (furry & otherwise) had a fabulous day!! Thank YOU for the being the best breeders ever!! Not to mention the ‘hostess with the mostest’  Julie


Hi Guys,

Just wanted to say what an absolutely fantastic day we had today. Merlin had a wonderful time with all his family and Luna had a lovely time too! The Achouffe Puppy parties are a great idea and all the dogs are a real credit to you. We are very proud to be part of the Achouffe family and I’m sure that “Angel Fen” was smiling down on all of us today.

Loads of love and squeezy hugs to you both!


Hi Julie, thanks very much for inviting us to the party on Sunday….Purdey had a great time! Hope you and Mark have recovered by now. It was great to meet everybody. Such a wonderful idea for keeping in touch, but a lot of hard work and planning I’m sure….thanks again.


Julie & Mark

A big ‘thank you’ for the lovely day yesterday.  We all enjoyed it enormously and it was fabulous seeing all those Slovaks together.  Even the weather was kind.

Love to you both and the doggies,


Thanks again for today, we had real fun; and Drum did two retrieves straight back to hand on our walk??  Impressive!


Hello!! Thank you for a fantastic day, Purdey loved it she’s flat out asleep now ha! they really are all lovely dogs xx just like their owners xx Thank you for the lovely card too with the sketch of Fen on the front, very fitting I thought xx love you lots and see you soon.


Juju and Markie,

Thank you for a great day on Sunday, we thoroughly enjoyed it and it was quite clear that you’d gone to a lot of trouble!  It was great to see all the puppies particularly the five out of Fen’s first litter – all a credit to her especially Purdey and our Phyn of course!  I thought it was so funny how they all seemed to know who was who and that they were brothers and sisters – simply amazing!

It was great to have a good catch up with everybody and meet the new owners from Remi’s litter we had a great chat with Kath and Rob Archie’s owners, he’s  a super lovely boy.

So thank you once again for such a wonderful day with wonderful food, so looking forward to the next one!

Love you loads


Dear Julie & Mark

A very short but heartfelt thanks to you both, for including us in your family group and making us feel so welcome.  The three of us have had a really positive experience which started with yesterday’s training and was topped with a fab day today where we met some truly nice people and their dogs.
