We are a small hobby kennel. Over the years, Dom had various setters as house pets and hunting
dogs. He acquired his first Irish Red and White Setter, Clé, for hunting, in 2007. Dom became
interested in showing Clé and brought him to Susan’s conformation handling class for
instruction. Sue was impressed with Clé’s structure and personality. Clé is intelligent
with a keen sense of humor, much like his owner. Dom and Susan have since married
and acquired two more Irish Red And White Setter's, Ruby and Maeve.
Susan started training and showing dogs over thirty years ago. She took a break from the show ring for a number of years and has just recently started showing again. We have found Irish Red and White Setters to be one of the most intelligent and happiest breeds to work with. They are always a joy to be around.
All three of our dogs are wonderful companions and live in the house with us. They all love to go to the field and find birds. In addition to having great prey drive for hunting, Clé has earned his AKC Grand Championship and his UKC championship. He has a JH title and is working towards his Senior Hunter title. He received the Award of Merit at Westminster Kennel Club in 2011. Ruby has great pointing instincts and is an excellent hunter. She has her JH and is also working toward her Senior Hunter title. We have great hopes for our puppy, Maeve. She has an excellent nose on her for finding birds.
We welcome you to our website and hope you enjoy our dogs with us.
