I have now owned WSSs for 24 years and bred my first litter under the Cherryheath Kennel Name in 2007, one of whom, Ceri, has been awarded her Junior Warrant and Stud Book Number.
In 2011 Ceri had a litter, one of whom, Brynn (C. Mr Mischief), has stayed here and also been awarded his Junior Warrant and Stud Book Number and two firsts for my kennel he has also gained his Show Certificate of Merit (ShCM) and now his Show Champion title.
In 2015 Ceri had a second litter, two of whom remained with me: Braith (C. Miss Velocity KW) who has also been awarded her Junior Warrant and Stud Book Number & Barri (C. Mr Mojito).
In 2018 Cai (Chanangel Mr Whodat At Cherryheath) joined the household.
All of my dogs are tested: Eyes (and are clear for Glaucoma) and Hip Scored (all scores under 19).
I enjoy numerous activies with both my dogs and other dogs:
My dogs are pets, 9 have passed at least their KC Bronze Good Citizen Tests (four have passed Gold - Thomas, Ceri, Barri & Braith) - they are shown and 8 (adults) have gained their KC Stud Book Numbers (qualifying for Crufts for life), some participate in Gundog work, one has participated in Obedience competitions and is passed as a Pets As Therapy dog.
I judge at both Championship and Open Show level and am on all of the WSS Club 'A1 lists' for WSSs. I have awarded Challenge Certificates in Scotland (GBAS) in 2010, Windsor (2013), Richmond (2015), Border Union (2017) and have an appointment for 2020.
