A selection of our Irish Junior Champions

For a dog to win a FCI junior title he has to be entered in the junior class and be judge to of an Excellent type and placed first in the class. Over the years we have made up along with our owners over twenty corgis. All these Pembrokes were DNA tested or bred for it.

Cherry flew in to us during August 2012 and during her time showing sh won four CACs and became an Irish Junior at the Coleraine show 2013. In the UK Cherry amassed 23 points for a ShCM and took a reserve Best Puppy in Show at one of her first shows.

Sally was out of our first tested DM / vWD litter with Startori Andreas and Ir Ch Int Ch Milkyweys Wildflower Ir Vet Ch, ShCM.

Sally was first shown in the UK under an American at the Bath CC show as a puppy and won her class.

Whilst on the Irish circuit she beat her mother and took four CACs in her time being shown but took her Irish Junior title beforehand in the early shows in 2015. 

Sally has had two litters, both with Ir Ch Balletcor’s Wonderous Collaboration. He first was the first litter of ours where we tested all the puppies for Degenerative Myelopathy. All pups were Vwd clear by parentage.

Out of this litter came two clears. We kept both and the boy Balletcor Ravenswood had a litter with a clear girl and one pup has been the catalyst for the improvement of DM bred pups in the working farms in Wales.

Balletcor Knight Crusade Irish Junior Champion (picture above shows Lenny at 6 months)

Lenny took to the world of showing like he was doing at a week old. We took him and his sister, Mother and Kennel stalwort to Amsterdam for the world show 2018. Like hs sister he was entered all three days in the Puppy class and these two were exactly 6 months old on the day. Lenny was a real trouper and won the Best Puppy in Breed two days out of the three and was best dog puppy on three. On the Saturday we had a Puppy group to enter and he strode into the biggest ring we have ever been in and the judge from Belgium didn’t stop watching him. He was called out in the final six and was awarded fourth in Group. The following week we were at the Killarney C Show and he took Bst Of Breed and his first CAC.
