Due to popular demand we held an ‘Achouffe Puppy Party’ choosing a central location in the beautiful grounds of ‘Chatsworth House’, Derbyshire. We couldnt have wished for better weather, fine, dry with a touch of wind, we incorporated Gundog activities, a mock Dog Show, together with Field Games, Prizes, Rosettes and that all important ‘Party Bag’; together with a Picnic and BBQ for everyone we had an absolute ball.

It was a real family affair, a chance to catch up with the puppies which we have previously bred, their owners, and for them to meet each other and chat about their own experiences of highs and thankfully not too many lows with their little/large bundles of adolescent fun.

Read some of the testimonials from the day below:


“We just wanted to say a BIG, BIG Thank you to Julie and Mark for a really wonderful party! You both did a fantastic day and we really appreciated all your effort…right down to the “Doggie Goodie bags”!

It was absolutely amazing to see so many Achouffe Puppies all together, all the dogs are stunning and it was great to see them all doing so well…and growing up so fast!

Merlin thoroughly enjoyed himself, completely overwhelmed to see so many of his chums! and very, very happy to see his “Mummy Julie and Daddy Mark” again!.

I hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as we did and I hope we will all continue to keep in touch, please feel free to contact us anytime we would love to hear from any of “The Family” It was lovely to meet Victor and Blue for the first time…Such little stars! and the new pups too, Fen must be so proud of them all”.

“We too would like to say a huge thank you. We all had an amazing time, especially the girls who had never seen so many Grey beauties!!! They even took their rosettes, trophies, sheriff badge and medals into school for “Show and tell” today!!

Within minutes of arriving home Blue collapsed in a heap on his beanbag and entertained us with his doggy dreams all night. Goodness only knows which adventure was going on in his head!!

Great to see you all again and hopefully won’t be for too long. So take care and hopefully we can all stay in touch”.

“Just to add our thanks to those already expressed for a truly excellent day – I can truly say I was bowled over….!!! It was great to meet everyone and take encouragement and advice on the Slovak journey we have embarked on. It was amazing to see them all together”.

“We had a brilliant time and it was a real pleasure to meet everybody and see all the beautiful dogs, Fen & Bailey Border are both very clever ladies!!! Thank you so much Julie & Mark for putting on such a great afternoon”.

“We had great fun – David in particular enjoyed picking up the tips on working with Victor – so much so I got him a whistle, a dummy and a guide book for father’s day!

I’ve enclosed some of our photos of the day, and on a more serious note if you do have any people who have questions on Slovaks living with children I would be more than happy to help and give any advice”.
