Get To Know More About US
Our Set Up
We live on a 13 acre property just south of Gainesville, Florida (USA). We previously lived in the United Kingdom, but moved our program to the USA in 2022.
Our dogs are members of our family, we do not have kennels. All of our dogs (both male and female) live in the house, enjoy lounging on the sofa, interacting with us, one another and the cats 24/7.
Our dogs are our life! We have dedicated agility and rally obedience facilities at home, and previously had a dock diving pool in the UK (we hope to set one up in the USA soon).
We keep goats and ducks, and previously kept horses, sheep, pigs and a wider variety of poultry and waterfowl, that we showed at county events. Given time, we hope to have the same set up in the USA too.
What Our Dogs Do
Our dogs, and the puppies we produce, are known for their versatility. First and foremost they are loved members of the family and companions, but the majority also compete in a wide range of disciplines including:
- Heelwork to Music & Trick Training
- Fast Cat and CAT
- Dock Diving
Who We Are
We both have a keen interest in dog training and genetics and have been members of the Kennel Club’s GCDS Display Teams at Crufts since 2012. Both Gareth & Georgette are rally obedience scribes, and Georgette is also an A1 examiner for the KC’s Good Citizen Dog Scheme (for all levels).
Georgette is the official contact for Merle testing for MAS as a breed. Merle testing has progressed considerably over the last couple of years and Vemodia/ Tilia led the way with their collaborative work on the 7 merle alleles we now recognize (along with mosaicism). Should you wish to find out more, or understand where to get your dog tested, you are welcome to contact us for more details.
