Steve & Carol have been breeding dogs since 1988.
To our knowledge TAGETARL is the only kennel in the World to Specialise in the four Australian 'CATTLE DOG' and 'TERRIER' breeds, with 20 individual BEST IN SHOW winners. We breed equally for soundness and breed type ~ There is no point in having a sound dog that does not look like the breed, nor is there any point in having a dog that resembles the breed but is not sound.

We are proud to be associatied with this true blue little dog. The Silky is without a doubt the Glamour breed of all Australian breeds, and don't they know it! Our Silkies love to strut their stuff and have that unmistakable 'look at me' attitude both in the ring and as an attractive pet for the discerning owner.
At TAGETARL all our Silkies possess true breed type. Careful attention is paid to proportions, top-lines, angulation, coat colour/texture and movement. All of our Silky Terriers are just that, Terriers! Bold, outgoing and full of themselves.
At TAGETARL there are no 'experimental' matings. We have carefully studied pedigrees and sought out individuals and bloodlines that bring improvement in traits and conformation and from this we construct our breeding programme.
