Phil, Sam & Nala (Tyne & Wear, UK)
We picked up our chowski puppy in May 2017. We’re beyond delighted with Nala (the puppy) and cannot endorse Celtic Star Kennels enough for the puppy or their support. Nala’s temperament was beyond reproach which was essential as we have young members of our extended family and 4 chickens who live in the garden.
We were naturally nervous about taking on the responsibility of a dog as it was Sam’s first dog but the “Chowski pack” that came with Nala was very comprehensive and helpful – we were also assured if we had any further questions we just had to ask.
Nala took the travel home by car without any problems (7 hours to Newcastle) and has since settled into her new home well. She proved very easy to train learning all the usual commands within the first week or so and was almost toilet trained by the time we picked her up at 8-9 weeks (still had a few accidents though). She’s excellent off the lead and is friendly to humans and dogs alike.
One small disclaimer is that you will get nowhere quickly with the puppy – every dog owner stops us to ask about the dog and we can’t walk down the street without being stopped for pictures or people running out of the shops to fuss Nala – she’s become a little local celebrity and has recently become the face of a local dog themed cafe, The Barking Bistro gaining 100+ Facebook “likes” in the first weekend. I’ve attached some of our favourite photos to date.
In all seriousness we’d like to thank Ross and Chantele so much for the dog that has irreversibly changed our lives for the better! I’d be very happy to be contacted should any prospective owners have any questions.
