About us

Irish Wolfhounds

We are located in rural North Yorkshire in 14 acres of stunning scenery, on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.  Here our dogs during the day enjoy the freedom of our well kept land and are never left on their own for long periods of time.  We are not a show kennel and our dogs have a great outdoors life, they enjoy lots of free exercise and love to chase the odd rabbit or two !  They all play together, boys and girls (unless we have girls in season !) and both the Newfoundlands and Irish Wolfhounds have great temperaments which is typical of both breeds.


I have devoted the last 20+ years to my dogs and they come first and foremost in everything I do, they want for nothing and I am passionate about both breeds and will continue to breed to enhance the future of Newfoundlands and Irish Wolfhounds.


We have 3 Highlands and some sheep to keep the grass under control., a dozen chickens for fresh eggs, which is great when we have a litter of puppies.


All of our Newfoundlands have hip scores well below the breed average.  We also elbow score and heart test all our dogs.  Our Veterinary Cardiologist visits us at home to do this procedure, much less stressful for the dogs.  We also cystinuria test where necessary.


Irish Wolfhounds are a wonderful breed, they are the gentle giants of the dog world and are wonderful family companions.

This is a lovely video created by Vin Sharma who recently purchased a Newfoundland puppy, I hope it gives a little insight to us and the breed.
