Welcome to our website

We are a small show kennel in the south of Ireland situated at the foot of the Sugarloaf mountain in Co. Wicklow  breeding and showing quality Whippets , Borzoi’s and Skye Terriers . With three generations of experience with dogs and showing we are very proud  of our many champions both home and abroad . 

My mum and myself both judge under licence to the IKC and the FCI . We have judged in many countries around the world. 

My mother has  run a very successful boarding Kennel for many years and was also an excellent groomer showing both Poodles and Afghans in the past .

I myself have been showing and caring  for dogs and horses all my life and am very proud of our achievements in and out of the show ring .
