We are thrilled with the families that chose a Tauriel Kennels puppy to join their families.

Take a look below to see what some of them have to say.




We cannot recommend Emmy and Tauriel Kennels enough. We were blessed to have been chosen as the forever home for our precious Min Pin boy Jett from Dixie and Ruger's first litter of Min Pins. From the moment we first spoke to Emmy, we could tell that she was extremely passionate and dedicated in the role that she has raising and training her beautiful puppies so that they’re prepared for the world. She kept us up to date with milestones, pictures and videos of Jett regularly. Then, when he was ready to make the trip up to Auckland to us, we were blown away with the generosity of things that Emmy sent to us to aid in Jett’s comfort with the transition.

Thank-you so much for providing the best start imaginable to our sweet boys life!

I have only the highest of praise for Tauriel Kennels and for the way Emmy handles her dogs and the lifetime interaction she has with them.


Emmy has a love for her animals and ensures they go to loving homes. She gives them the best start in life and to say that these puppies are spoilt is an understatement. Her knowledge is vast and she has even helped me with my staffy and his skin issues.


I'm so grateful for our gorgeous little rascal, Riley has brought welcomed mischievousness into our home and so much cuddles. Our vet always compliments us on what a healthy dog Riley is. We are so happy with our little girl.


Thank you Emmy and Tauriel Kennels.

We are so happy with our Tauriel kennels experience. Emmy was incredible throughout the process, she truely cares about the puppies while they are with her and once they have gone to their new homes.

Emmy has such a wealth of knowledge that she is happy to share, she prepared the puppies and the new owners to make the transition to their new lives as simple as possible.

We received regular photos, videos, updates and we were even able to visit our puppy bailey a few times before bringing her home.

Bailey received the best start in life. She is such a special puppy, full of confidence and well natured, this is a real testament to Emmy’s high standards of the breed.

If you’re thinking about getting a Tauriel Kennel puppy, do it!

Tauriel Kennels was so easy to deal with, answering all the questions we had, sending photos and videos of the pup we were interested in keeping us well informed and soooo excited.

Emmy went above and beyond to ensure the puppy had the best care and support when transporting to Auckland too. We were incredibly impressed and grateful.
She continued to keep us informed about important puppy advice and nutrition/flea/worming guidance; a testament to her commitment to the health of her puppies after leaving her care. The puppy (Bowie) has been just a good boy, adoring the company of others (people and dogs alike) and has been a dream to take out and about- I put this down to her and the families care during the early stages of him being a pup!
Thank you for all of your care and support! Highly recommend!!

Our experiences with Tauriel Kennels has only been amazing.


So much so, after getting Jacques Janvier (JJ) in December 2021, we’ve already gone back for a second in our baby girl Kiki in May 2023.

Emmy is amazing to work with if you’re lucky enough to secure one of her gorgeous border collies – Salsa is a gorgeous mum to both JJ and Kiki.


They’re wonderfully confident dogs and playful companions, they have a good temperament and are highly trainable.

This is testament to Emmy and her amazing family enough for the hard work they put into the first 8-9 weeks of these dogs lives.

Emmy’s knowledge when taking on not only one, but two border collies has been tremendously helpful.


Emmy’s comms style is just awesome as well, every step of the way for both dogs, Emmy provides so many update pictures and videos of the pups as the start their lives.

Life without these two beautiful dogs wouldn’t be the same; we are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have them both.

I couldn't have asked for more from Emmy and Tauriel Kennels. Emmy and her family loved our puppy like we do and took very good care of her (Mila).

We received pictures of Mila most days and a lot of videos also of the puppies which was so lovely.

Mila was given many, many happy experiences with Emmy and is a very confident wee girl with both people and other dogs.

After we became the parents of our gorgeous Min Pin pup, Emmy was there for us if we needed advice and we loved that. We are still in touch and Emmy has been to visit Mila (we invited her), we are so lucky to have Emmy in our lives.

If you are wanting a confident healthy baby Min Pin, I recommend Tauriel Kennels.

We had an awesome experience with Emmy from Tauriel kennels from the get go and to this date she is still very much involved. She kept us updated with photos until the day we collected them. Taught them to share and play, and even started with crate training before we picked her up. 

Registering our pup was a breeze.

Regular visits were encouraged so that they could get used to us.

We couldn’t be more happier with Jessie our Border Collie. She is sweet natured and we love her to bits.


Emmy also created a Facebook page where we could upload photos of our pups and it is nice to see how her brothers and sisters are doing and she regularly sends us reminders or notices about border collie get-togethers or play groups.


Thank you Emmy for making this a wonderful experience & thank you for allowing us to be Jessie’s human parents.
