Great work Beverley
Tirelessly looking for a puppy from a responsible breeder. It was hard work until I heard about tailwise who did all the work for me and found me a 5 star breeder in just under a day. I loved how thoughtful and efficient Beverley was and I’m glad I decided to use tailwise.

Brilliant experience
Brilliant experience! I couldn’t recommend the Tailwise team enough. Beverley and Sarah have helped us through the whole process. We were matched with a fantastic breeder back in February and will be picking up our puppy next week. I was struggling to find a responsible breeder...

Amazing service!!
After trying to find a puppy and not really knowing where to look, I stumbled across an advert for tailwise from a breeder’s Facebook page. I decided to take a look and apply, the application was easy to do and gave plenty of space to explain our circumstances and reasons for wanting a puppy...

Such a positive experience! We were so worried about finding a responsible breeder but came across Tailwise and are now waiting to pick up a beautiful Cockapoo puppy. The process was simple but thorough enough to give us full confidence in Tailwise ... and they’re such a friendly bunch...

Tailwise Success Stories

Easily the best part of our job is seeing pictures of happy new owners with their beautiful puppies. We've had so many brilliant matches and stories already - below are just a few of our favourites.

Usman & Nova

I had been tirelessly looking for a puppy from a responsible breeder. It was hard work until I heard about Tailwise who did all the work for me and found me a 5 star breeder in just under a day. I loved how thoughtful and efficient Beverley was and I’m glad I decided to use Tailwise.

Emma & Raffi

The Tailwise service was friendly and helpful in what can be a daunting process finding a reputable breeder. They were very diligent which was very reassuring. We would highly recommend Tailwise to everyone - we met a wonderful breeder and have a happy, healthy puppy!

Sarah & Millie

The breeder Tailwise recommended was friendly and knowledgeable. She let us visit whenever we wanted and sent regular photos and videos, and even gave the puppies toys, a bag of food and a blanket with their mother’s scent. I’ve had a great experience with Tailwise and it gave me real peace of mind. I highly recommend them.

Irish Wolfhound Breeder
“We are very careful in placing our puppies. In forty years we have only had two returns because of extenuating circumstances. We provide health certificates of parents and puppies, insurance, a care booklet and diet sheet, food, toys and a blanket. Most importantly we provide our contact details and make sure we are available 24/7 should new owners need us. “
Lynne
Cockapoo Breeder
“Our new puppies become part of our family from day 1 and are raised to be loving family pets within a family environment. We socialise them in a busy, noisy, household so they are well used to household life. We only use fully health tested studs and our girls are also health tested. Ensuring we raise healthy happy puppies. We love our girls and their health and needs always comes first."
Julia F
Cavalier King Charles Breeder
“I've been breeding dogs for 30+ years. I'm passionate about my dogs and breeding for health and temperament. All my dogs are home reared, I have no kennels. We follow the Puppy Culture and BioSensor programmes to ensure our pups are the best they can be.“
Hester O
Hovawart Breeder
“Our puppies are reared in comfy, homely surroundings with dogs and people surrounding them for the best socialisation. We use an indoor whelping box and play area with access to the garden. We try to introduce our puppies to as many sights, sounds, tastes & smells as possible while they are young to set them up to be the perfect family pet.“
