We have Cairn Terriers and Tollers in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. Welcome to our Kennel site!

We are located in Nanaimo. All of our dogs are Canadian Champions (CKC) and we are active in obedience, rally, agility, hunt training and earthdog events. Recently we have begun lure coursing and barn hunt. Our dogs are our hobby and pets and we enjoy training and participating in events with them.

On this home page, we'll introduce our dogs and let you know about our occasional litters. We raise "home grown'" puppies, which make wonderful pets and working dogs, we occasionally have show quality cairns and tollers (Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers).

We have been raising and showing dogs for over 30 years. All of our pups have Canadian Kennel Club registration, worming, shots, microchips and health guarantees before they leave home. We have only one litter a year and strive for quality. All of our dogs are shown to their championship and live in the home. They have been trained in obedience and our recently deceased Toller, Ivy has her CDX and RA titles. Ivy also has hunt titles (JH and WC) and titles in agility (AGIS, AGNJS). She is sadly missed, passing away in October 2015 at the age of 15 yrs, 10 mos. Her great grandaughter, Zena, 3 yrs old, is currently in training. She recently obtained her Rally Novice title. We hope to breed Zena for a spring 2017 litter.

Our cairns, are in earthdog trials, Luna earned her Junior Earthdog title (JE) and Serge earned his JE in the US as well as his Masters in Canada. Serge is also titled in novice agility and Rally novice which has qualified him for the Cairn Club of Canada's new versatility award. , Lisa Marie has finished her championship and passed her Introduction to Quarry and her agility novice. See photo to the right of Saucydog's Lisa Marie at eleven weeks.

See our puppy page for our next Cairn litter due in 2017, probably in the fall. No pet applications will be taken this early. Inquiries about performance or breeding/showing homes are welcome anytime.

Here we display a picture of our current or a recent litter.
