Our Dogs

We currently share our home with five dogs: Odhran, a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier; Lexie, a Griffon Fauve de Bretagne; Lily and Florence, who are both Working Cocker Spaniels, and Remus who is an Irish Wolfhound, so we have considerable personal experience of different breeds and of living in a multi dog household.
