We are totally against the international pet trade and all our animals are captive bred in the UK.
Our animals are assessed closely for several weeks before being allowed to work. We look at their history and take time to ensure that they are content to be handled before they are allowed to go to any venue.
Some of our animals are used for display only based on their needs and history.
We have more than one of most animals so they do not work more than two consecutive days. Sometimes our animals are retired for a period of time due to seasonal needs or changes in behaviour. Mating seasons can affect animals' behaviour towards humans as can temperature.
We are happy to assist with rehoming animals as they are better out of a home where they are no longer able to be looked after properly, whether through the ill health or time available to the owner or other unfortunate circumstances,
