Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
We have a pack of 5 Tenterfield Terriers and each of the puppies socialise with my crew as well as varied aged humans who give them lots of play, cuddles and love
Mum and Dad are tested prior to the breeding to ensure they are clear of any genetic, in turn, this ensures the pups are also clear of genetic problems. All pups are wormed at 2,4,6&8 weeks. Health checked and vaccinated at 6 weeks.
I live on acreage and all puppies are raised as happy, healthy and confident puppies, ready for their forever homes.

There is a DNA test available to identify breeding dogs that are carrying BHFD.
