'A beautiful placid dog'
When we contacted Steve and Suzann they were great and gave us lots of advice about the breed before we visited them. When we visited the puppies they were beautiful, and Steve and Suzann didn't rush us at all. We really appreciated the ongoing interest in Dakota and meeting up in the summer for the puppy party was lots of fun. We brought Dakota home just before our youngest son's 1st birthday and she is great with both our children. She is very tolerant of them and if she has enough she moves away. She will happily play tug with them but she is very sweet and lets the children win!!! She happily enjoys a walk around the block but also loves a long walk in the forest. Dakota is not a barky dog but you do feel safe with her around as she will always sit between us and the door and will respond to the door with a bark, but if we invite people in she will welcome them with a sniff!!

Thank you Steve and Suzann for such a beautiful placid dog.

'Nothing but Pure Bliss'
We purchased a puppy from Sue and Steve, and I have to say that it has been nothing but pure bliss. I was rather hesitant on buying a pedigree puppy, as I was keen on getting a rescue dog. We really wanted a dog that could fit into our lifestyle, and be a part of the family. I am a huge animal lover and I grew up in Canada with German Sheppard and wanted something similar. Well then we heard about Tibetan Mastiffs. I did plenty of research on line about TMís and I was convinced this was the dog for meÖ Then we were put in contact with Sue and Steve and their Carramia TMís. I sent an email to Sue through her website and within hours I was soon the phone with her. I remember she asking me lots of questions abut my lifestyle, if I work, what our garden is like, what other pets we have. I really appreciated this, as I knew that she really cared about her little puppies and wanted them to go to a good home. Sue and Steve then invited me over to see her puppies and I probably spend two hours rolling around in the garden and getting sloppy kisses from them. There were two left and I really wanted to take them both. But this was our first TM, and I wanted to get to know the breed before I took on two. We choose Miss Pink, a gorgeous girlie girl. The process was as smooth as can be as I realise Sue and Steve knew that I was the right master for our new baby. Sue and Steve were extremely professional and organised with their paper work and even sent us off with a puppy pack. They were on the phone with me for the next week giving me advice on how to make our new girl..(We renamed her Jet) feel the most comfortable. They were always just a phone call away if I ever had any questions and were always eager to hear how she was doing. Sue and Steve do a puppy party every year to get the puppy owners to meet each other and the puppies to be together again. I have had the most seamless and pleasurable experience with our puppy from Sue and Steve, and we recommend them as extremely caring and intelligent breeders. My partner and I have 4 kids and our little, now (BIG) Jet has taken to them and is so gentle and sweet. I remain in contact with Sue and Steve and am hoping to get another puppy from them!

'Passionate Devotion'
We would like to thank Suzann & Steve for their advice, support and friendship. Our first contact of Tibetan Mastiffs was in March 2006 when we went to the home of Suzann & Steve to pick up our beautiful Turkish Vankedisi cat Mia, we had never seen or heard of the breed of Tibetan Mastiff before. We found the home of Suzann & Steve to be welcoming and dedicated to the cats and dogs that they breed and love. We were very impressed with Taylor, one of their male Tibetan Mastiffs, and we thought that Kaisa was very pretty. There was two puppies there at the time and we were smitten! Even though we were there to pick up Mia we found ourselves asking questions about the breed and spending time with the dogs. We went away with a very positive image of the breed. My husband really wanted a puppy that looked like Taylor, but before we approached Suzann with the possibility of purchasing a puppy we researched the breed to see if it was the dog for us. Robert had always wanted a dog but had never found the one that appealed to him until we meet Suzann & Steve's TM's. A couple of months after that visit and a couple of phone calls later we finally asked the big question? Could we be considered for a puppy of Taylor's? Suzann was very thorough and asked us lots of questions to see if we were suitable possible owners of a TM and it showed us that Suzann & Steve were more interested in the well-being of the new puppies than in just selling puppies. This made us more confident in our choice of breeder as we had researched other breeders online. Suzann & Steve kept us informed as prospective parents, of Kaisa's pregnancy and birth. I found this very important and it built a strong relationship between breeder and new owner. When we came to choose our puppy we found that we fell in love with two, a gold boy and a gold girl and after much discussion (between ourselves and Suzann who pointed out lots of potential problems of owning two TM's, especially as one was a boy and one was a girl) we decided to ask for them both. We are now the proud owners of two TM's, Tobey (who incidentally is the spitting image of his dad Taylor much to the delight of Robert) & Steffi (who is the prettiest TM ever). They are growing like weeds and are loved by all. The support, advice and knowledge of Suzann & Steve (which wasn't always pointing out the positive, but they explained all the negatives in great detail and made sure we understood everything to do with the breed) and their passionate devotion to their dogs and the breed is a credit to them and their desire to breed TM's for the pleasure of bringing new life into this world to see it flourish. We would recommend Suzann & Steve as breeders of TM's and are happy for Suzann & Steve to give any prospect new TM's owners our telephone number or email to contact us direct.

'A 5-star Experience'
Thanks to Suzann & Steve for making the purchase of Mika such a smooth and enjoyable experience. After meeting you both at the Spring '06 TM Show, then tentatively sending an email via the Carramia website enquiry page, I was pleased to receive a phone call inviting me to visit and look around. From then on everything was taken at a leisurely pace, with no pressure (unlike a breeder of another breed I once tried to deal with) no loud sighs when I phoned with yet another query! Equally important, not an eyelid batted when I said I could not collect Mika until he was 9 weeks old (unlike the "other" breeder that wanted me to take one at 5 1/2 weeks so to have the litter homed before Christmas). Mika met with other puppies from his litter and their owners at the Spring '07 TM show, and with the Summer Puppy Party as well, owning our puppy has become a great social event. I know some breeders would take the money, hand over the pup, and not phone even once to ask how he is, but Suzann and I are regularly in contact with each other. All in all, a 5-star experience! Thanks once again!
