Passion for Animals
I’m Rachel Newman and I live in Barnham, West Sussex, I have always had a passion for dogs which started with the first family dog Jasper a Collie cross Labrador who was a major part of the family. When he passed away the house felt empty and I persuaded mum to let me have my own dog and I got my beloved Taffy a Border Collie which I rescued. But he needed a lot of help with behaviour and mental issues which we overcame with time, I when wanted a friend for him and again I had to persuade mum. We went to the Dogs Trust in Shoreham by Sea and I got Barney who settled in well.
From the age of 16 I worked at a local kennels and learnt lots about breeding pedigree dogs and much more. I went to college and studied the art dog grooming and completed the course, I left college to work of another kennels and ran the grooming parlour there for 6 years. This is where I was introduced to a pack of Boarder Terrier puppies and it was love at first sight with one of the bitch puppies. After work I rushed home and told mum all about her and that I really wanted her to be part of the family, again I worked my magic and I brought home this 8 week puppy called Lottie home to meet the gang.
When Lottie was about 2 years of age she had her first litter of 3 boys, Tom, Dick and my beloved Harry who were all health and a good size, I whelped Lottie in my sister’s bedroom lucky she had moved out the month before. I found Tom and Dick good homes and are all very happy but I kept Harry my little star. Lottie has had a couple of litters and this is how I got another two beautiful bitches Tuppence and Willow. All my litters have been whelped and raised at home and not in a kennel like some breeders, I will continue to do this as I believe this is the best atmosphere for a puppy and mother as it’s calm and social environment. I loving showing my dogs and they love being shown whether it’s in a local show or at Crufts.
So that’s me in a nut shell on how my passion start and my gang grow hope enjoyed the little insight to how I got started.
THE NOOKSHOT FAMILY
We have been coming to Rachel to groom our dogs since 2007 when we bought our first Border Terrier puppy from Rachel. Rachel always does a great job and we have recommended her to many of our friends.
We now live in West Wales and despite this still regularly have Rachel to look after them when we are visiting the area.
