We are happy to announce the arrival of new puppies on July 9, 2020. We keep our pups at least 10 weeks before they are released to their new homes. They are not nursing anymore, but the mom still plays an important part in teaching these youngsters manners.
My pet quality pups sell for $3000. Visits are encouraged so that we can meet and I can introduce you to my adult dogs. I prefer to not ship my puppies but have made exceptions with older pups.
Please keep in mind that my primary purpose in any breeding is for a “show" prospect. Those pups not destined for a show career will be available to approved homes. Usually, I can make that decision by the time the pups are 10 - 12 weeks of age.
On occasion, I have older pups who are not suited for a show career. Additionally, there could be an adult who is being retired from breeding. These possibilities are available for considerably less money.
As an introduction, let me say I have been showing and breeding since 1996. I am very pleased with the bloodlines in my kennel, as they go back to some great winners, as well as healthy long-lived Welsh. I have a small kennel with both Welsh and Cairn Terriers. Additionally, I am an active and respected member with the national club for both breeds and am an approved AKC Judge in these breeds, and other terriers as well.
Puppies are raised in my home with lots of love and socialization. By the time they leave, they’ve been wormed, had at least their first shot and are micro-chipped, Plus, they are sleeping quietly through the night in their own crate and that crate is clean in the morning when they go out. They are still not housebroken but are certainly on their way to becoming well-mannered members of their future family. My puppies leave with their own crate, collar and lead. Folks who have pups from my breeding know that I am there for them for the life of that puppy. I help with grooming and training. Should circumstances change, I will always take the dog back. I offer a health guarantee, together with a 2-week, no questions, full refund return policy.
As you may have discovered, there are very few Welsh Terriers available, and those that become available are promised quickly. It took me almost 10 months to locate my first Welsh (some years back). Most Welsh Terrier breeders have waiting lists for both show and pet puppies. So getting a Welsh from a reputable breeder can be a lengthy process. It is best to find breeders within driving distance so that you can visit their kennels, see how their dogs are raised and meet their older dogs as they are a better indication of temperament and personality than only seeing puppies. If you have never spent time around a Welsh terrier, then visits like this are even more important, as the Welsh is not a breed for everyone. Compare it to living with Dennis the Menace - at times you are ready to ring their necks, but they are still so very loving.
Ask lots of questions of any breeder and be prepared to answer even more, including giving references, as good breeders are very careful in the placement of our dogs. A good breeder also matches the right dog or puppy to the proposed household, as personalities do vary. Reputable breeders are there for support to the dog and its owner for the dog's lifetime as reflected in the WTCA Code of Ethics.
Yes, it can be frustrating to wait for a Welsh terrier, but this dog is going to be a member of your family for the next fourteen years or longer. A good dog from a reputable breeder is well worth the wait.
Of course, should you have further questions, I am always happy to discuss the breed and would welcome a visit - feel free to contact m by visiting the Contact page
