Why Us?


At Atikan we pride ourselves on being truely ethical, passionate breeders with the love of our dogs being at the heart of everything we do. Our main goal is to produce healthy, happy puppies and make the experience of adding a new puppy to your family as stress free and enjoyable from start to finish and for us our job doesn't finish when a puppy leaves us; we are here for them and you for life & are only ever a phone call away.

All of our dogs live in our home and are our much-loved pets first and foremost, always. We have 10 acres of our own private land & our dogs spend most of their days running through the rushes in the fields, helping me out on the yard with the horses or lying in front of their infamous heater in the living room. They often come to horse shows with us, weekends away and their absloute favorite thing is joining us at local dog friendly restaurants for lunch/dinner where they of course steal the show every time. 


We have just this year taken up some showing with our dogs, something I will never do much of due to our commitments showing and competing our horses. However we have had a very successful year so far with several of our dogs qualifying for Crufts in good company.


 Atikan puppies are raised in our living room and socialized appropriately and carefully throughout the time we have them, we keep them in a very clean, cosy environment and try our best to begin house training with them and prepare them for their new life with their new families. They are exposed to new noises & experiences through our indepth habituation programme & so they always leave us as well adjusted, happy, confident puppies ready for their new adventures. They always have a home here for life too, if the circumstances of owners ever change, there is always a space on our sofa for them waiting. Our puppies are always:

-  Kc Registered 

-  Regularly wormed 

-  Microchipped, Vaccinated & Vet Checked 

-  Very well socialised with Cats, Dogs, Children, Noises etc 

-  Large personalised puppy pack

-  A lifetime of support & Contract

We want lifetime homes for our puppies with families who are happy to keep in touch with us and reach out at any time, we have met so many friends through our puppies. We have a private Facebook group set up that we add all our puppy owners into so they can keep in touch with their siblings and chat about all things Puppy/Frenchie/Dachshund.

Once a deposit has been placed on a puppy we send regular updates and we encourage you to visit regularly to build a relationship with your puppy prior to picking them up.

"All I can say about Nakita is this…she is an absolute godsend! An exemplary breeder who genuinely cares and adores every single one of her pups. I have had some really traumatic experiences with breeders in the past but she has completely restored my faith that good, decent breeders still exist. From the minute the pups are born you will receive regular pup-dates, pictures and videos so by the time you come to collect your little bundle of fluff you really will feel like you have bonded with it (which makes it all the more special!) Additionally, I know she is only a phone call away if I need any advice/help - she is very approachable and has knowledge in abundance. I will be forever grateful to her for trusting me with one her pups - safe to say not only have I gained a very special dog but also a life-long friend!"
