Pupdate 1 - Murphy’s journey has begun! 

Hello, it’s Shirley and David here, Murphy’s Puppy Raisers. Murphy is the eighth puppy we have puppy raised. Six of our previous pups are now fully trained! Casper, our most recent dog before Murphy, had to be taken out of the training programme due to health issues so we rehomed him. Casper is a great influence for Murphy.

Puppy raising has given us a lot of pleasure. Although it can be hard work at times it has so many benefits. One of the best things about being puppy raisers is that it enhances your social life; we’ve made so many new friends. Everybody talks to you when you’re out and about, it’s lovely. 

Murphy is a very calm pup – he’s a lot calmer than previous puppies we’ve had! Murphy is extremely enthusiastic when working or going out on a free run - although he does have a cheeky side to him, which is typical for retrievers! One lovely aspect about Murphy is that he is very gentle. When we’re walking and we stop to talk to people, he’ll very patiently lay down and wait until we’re ready to start walking again.
