Prefix : SAPHYR (Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier)
Celebrating > 20 years of natural feeding, 50+ years of purebred dogs.
We chose Soft Coated Wheatens for temperament, low odour & low allergy appeal after 30 yrs of Boxers. They help with reading in schools, have consistent success at Shows & love to be trained. Margaret regularly travels to Europe to source frozen semen from dogs bred to our UK & Irish (FCI) standards; a great opportunity to catch up on the latest on grooming tips too.
Our breeding program health tests as per recommendations of Int. Breed Clubs, of which Margaret is a member. All dogs are clear of the DNA PLN gene variant which has been linked to kidney issues within the breed.
Being retired our dogs have 24/7 care. Whilst show pups are available, we breed for families. Occasionally mature dogs are available.
Late weaned, raised in the home on natural food, by 8 wks pups have started manners, toilet & chew-toy training & enjoy the adventure playground.
A qualified, rewards based trainer Margaret’s commitment is evidenced by involvement with the Dogs Victoria Education Committee and regular attendance at trainer seminars..
Saphyr Wheatens are frequently shown & consistent winners, particularly under International & Specialist judges.
