I have been breeding and showing Bedlington Terriers for more than 25 years. I have to date bred and owned more than 20 champions which has earned me the Bedlington Terrier Club of America's award of "Breeder of Distinction". I am also a recipient of the Constance M. Williemsen Humanitarian Award and a lifetime member of the Bedlington Terrier Club of America, Inc.
|about the Bedlington|
We strive to breed our Bedlington Terriers to the standard. Temperament, structure and health are our first concerns and something we take very seriously. All of our dogs are DNA tested for Copper Toxicosis using the CT marker or the CT Deletion test and at the present time we are in the process of obtaining all the required medical testing required for CHIC certification. The purpose of CHIC is to test for known problems in a breed.
Here at Meadowsweet we are very proud of our dogs young and old, their accomplishments and longevity. My kennel is state licensed and climate controlled. The dogs each enjoy a romp in the kennel yard, playing on the agility equipment, or being taken for a morning walk by the lake. Our future plans include enclosing an additional 2 acres for their enjoyment. I do my art work here at my home and am able to give priority to their mental and physical well-being.We take every measure to ensure the health and soundness of each puppy we produce. The puppies are born and raised right in our home. Socialization and housebreaking are both started. We start grooming at 6 weeks and at 7-8 weeks each puppy receives a very thorough veterinary examination, 1st booster shot, fecal exam and is issued a health certificate. The DNA test results are provided to the new owner.
We produce only 1 or 2 litters a year, so we don't always have puppies, but if you have any questions or would just like to talk about the breed we'd love to talk to you. When we do have puppies available we place them with a neuter/spay agreement unless other arrangements have been made. We care very deeply for the puppies we produce and any puppy produced by me will always have a place here, should you be unable to keep it for any reason.
We hope you enjoyed your visit to our site and again thank you for your interest our Bedlingtons!
