CONTACT & INFO
Our journey to loving Irish Wolfhounds began while living in New Orleans, LA. After lengthy research, and contacting many good breeders, we brought home our first little hound, Maeve, in August 1996. We had no idea that she would change our lives forever, shape who we would grow into and what we love to do with our time. In 2003 we moved to Milwaukee, WI, began participating in Milwaukee Irish Fest, St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and continued competing with our hounds in AKC Conformation. Soon we also began competing in AKC Agility, Rally, Obedience, LGRA, Fast CAT, and Scent Work.
We health test, attend and participate in IW Specialties, seminars, and are active members of national, international, and regional Irish Wolfhound clubs, as well as local All-Breed dog clubs. We have exceeded the requirements by the AKC to have the honor of being recognized as AKC Breeders of Merit.
If you choose to contact us regarding our hounds, kindly tell us about yourself. Please also tell us how you became interested in Irish Wolfhounds. We choose to do limited breeding and have a long wait list for potential homes.
Finding a good breeder is of utmost importance. You may not have plans to show or compete, but that does not mean you don't want a healthy, well-socialized, balanced puppy. Patience will be needed in finding the right puppy because ethical breeders don't always have available pups. Sadly, locating a less-than-ethical or commercial "breeder" who has multiple litters a year, does limited or no health testing, and is willing to sell a puppy to you without investing time and asking any questions is easy. Look for a breeder who cares more about their puppies going to a wonderful home than the money they will be charging for a puppy. And choose a breeder who is in good standing with the National and Regional breed clubs.
