MEET OUR BREEDERS

Hi, I’m Tima and I run Folkvang dogs.

“I have spent my lifetime learning about and living with dogs. I've even purpose-built my own home to be ideal for my dogs! I always go above and beyond when it comes to health testing, I'm passionate about avoiding genetic bottlenecks. I use the American Puppy Culture method to socialise my puppies early and get them the best possible start to life.

THE EXPERTS ARE WITH US

Dr Carri Westgarth
Dr Carri Westgarth, BSc MPH PhD

Senior Lecturer in Human-Animal Interaction

Research shows that breeding for temperament and providing appropriate socialisation during the first few weeks of life are critical for the behavioural health of dogs. Finding a good breeder and confident, healthy pups is currently a major challenge for even the most knowledgeable and well-connected prospective dog owner. Therefore I am very excited about the future of Tailwise in helping to suitably match enthusiastic puppy parents with a quality breeder.

CODE OF ETHICS

We personally screen every member of our community. Dogs should never be treated as mere commodities. They should go from one loving home to another.

Dogifesto
Welfare above profit

For our breeders, the welfare of dogs is always the number one priority.

Happy & healthy puppies

Against puppy farming

We're united against puppy farming and want to make real changes to the way dogs are bought and sold in the UK.
