Having grown up in the sport of conformation dog shows, I cannot remember a time when a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier was not an integral part of our family. Apparently, I attended my first show dog when I was two weeks old. I began showing my first dog in Junior Showmanship and breed competition when I was 10. I met my wife in junior showmanship and later in the Wheaten breed ring – we’ve been married since 1995.
We have bred or shown 4 National Specialty winners and more dogs to their Championship Titles than we can recall. Our nine-year-old son, Luke, finished his first championship title on his Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Cutie, winning a 5-point major while beating both Mom and Dad. He has gone on to get her first Trick Dog title also.
We own three pet care facilities employing a team of 50+. We enjoy travel and have been to Italy and most recently on African safari. I’m hopeful that the experience I bring will contribute to the betterment of the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier and the continuation of the sport of purebred dogs.
