Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
We breed for type, temperament and soundness and our dogs live in the home with us and our puppies are raised with love in the home on our small acreage.
We strive for quality healthy Tenterfields. All our Tenterfields are PLL, CHG and PRA clear.
All our pups are raised by myself and my partner, Matthew. They are kept inside with the family, and depending on weather are spoilt with air conditioning and/heater during Winter.
Dzahhli Tenterfield Terriers conducts 2 out of 2 core health tests which RightPaw believe are most important to conduct for the Tenterfield Terrier.
Primary Lens Luxation (PLL) is a genetic cause of blindness found in dogs, particularly affecting…
Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) in dogs is a type of genetic eye disease causing deterioration…
Dzahhli Tenterfield Terriers conducts 2 additional tests available for the Tenterfield Terrier.
Congenital Hypothyroidism with Goitre (CHG) is a genetic type of hypothyroidism that can be found in Fox Terriers, English Toy Terriers and Tenterfield Terriers. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
This is a disease affecting the spinal cord of older dogs, initially causing wobbliness and eventually hindlimb paralysis. It can affect a wide range of breeds. There is now a DNA test that can indicated if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.
About the Breeder
A little about us
Matt and I are dog lovers. Our dogs are our life!
Why we got involved in breeding
Both Matt and myself knew we wanted a family of dogs as soon as we bought our first property, however we couldn't decide on what size as I always wanted a small dog to snuggle and Matt wanted a larger breed. Matt started searching DogzOnline for a breed that would suit both of us and he came across the Tenterfield Terrier, we weren't sure of the breed as we have never met anyone with Tenterfields so we contacted a breeder in Victoria, Australia - Pam Martin of Tentella Tenterfields and we arranged to go into partnership with her dog Tentella Wundurra. Pam came up for the Tenterfield Terrier Club of QLD Specialty Show in May 2014 and we fell in love with "Wundu" or "Dudey" as we nicknamed him. This began our Dog Show career, from there we have purchased our own bitch Numerrijig Angel I Am "Angel", she was born in February, 2015 and I managed to title her by November 2015, this was an extremely exciting time as I had never shown a dog prior to Wundu. By November 2015 we had already decided we wanted our own boy, so we started searching and in February 2016, Nudimah Mista Frey "Boston came home with us - he was born in December 2015. We had our first litter in November 2016, Angel was an absolutely amazing mother and gave birth to 2 baby girls and a baby boy. We decided to keep one of the baby girls, our first home bred bitch, Dzahhli Fashion N Fame "Prada" she has already had a wonderful show career and keep getting better every weekend, we are so proud of this girl and her upcoming career in the ring :)
Our special touch
We breed for type, temperament and soundness, our dogs enjoy Lure Coursing and Earth Dog Trials. We take pride in the amount of interaction our dogs have - our dogs are our life.
