Clubs : Beagle Club of WA, All Metropolitan All Breed Clubs, Hound Club & Bunbury & Districts Dog Club
Established in 1973, with the purchase of my first pedigree Beagle from Huntinglen Kennels. Registered the Prefix "Criterion" and had my first Beagle litter in 1976. In 2005 I purchased my first Elkhound ("CH Jazztime Vikings Skallee") from Mary Machin, and under her guidance and advice, bred my first litter in 2007. All litters are carefully planned and raised, always keeping in mind the importance of temperament and functionality - they should be able to do what they are bred to do - HUNT.
Prefix : CRITERION (Beagle)
Established in 1973, the Criterion "Beagle Gang" are not being shown as often as I would like currently, due to my involvement with the Elkies. Puppies are still selectively and carefully bred and raised, and occasionally available to suitable homes.
Criterion Norwegian Elkhounds is proudly carrying on the tradition of Mary Machin's "Jazztime Kennels". In collaboration with Mary's guidance and advice, puppies from "Criterion" are selectively bred and carefully raised. Was the home of the late "Grand Champion "Jazztime Vikings Tunzatu" (Scooby), (4th generation Grand Champion)- His progeny (and theirs) are currently enjoying success in the Hound ring here in WA.
