Prefix : ARDGAEITHE (Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier)

We are careful breeders of health tested puppies and have a passion and love for this wonderful breed.We are grateful to our mentors and the wisdoms they have shared.

Our aim is to breed the best possible happy good natured wheatens that we can,-best of temperament,good conformation,healthy pedigree,correct Irish coats,supported by health/genetic testing.

Health testing includes OFA/AVA testing hips/elbows,examination of eyes,bloods/urine/renal U/S to check/avoid relevant kidney disease that can rarely come in the breed.We do not breed ANY dogs that carry PLN variant gene due to the real risk to puppies of developing PLN from having even one copy of the gene.

Having a biomedical background,keeping on top of genetic studies and how such is related to health has been part of my work for 25years and I have enjoyed bringing that background into our breeding program.

We enjoy exhibiting our dogs-recent awards include:
