We have been in partnership with the Whittimere Norwegian Elkhounds since 2001; although Whittimere was established in  Norwegian Elkhounds by Robert Greaves in 1985.  In 2009 we were delighted that our first Finnish Spitz, “Rigsby” joined us from the Byrne family.  Ch & Ir Ch Kunniakas Look No Further For Whittimere is a great character and a joy to be owned by. He was Top Finnish Spitz 2010 and 2011. At Hound Association of Scotland in April 2011, Rigsby became the first Finnish Spitz to win BIS at a UK Group Championship Show.

In Norwegian Elkhounds we have owned or bred 9 UK Champions (including 3 who have joint GB and IKC titles) plus three Irish Champions and one Canadian Champion. All of our Elkhounds are highlighted on this website .

Most recently,  CH & Ir Ch Ennafort Clas Act of Swillyvalley ShCM (Tara) came into our ownership in 2007 and gained her UK title in 2009. Her daughter, Ch & Ir Ch Swillyvalley As You Like It Of Whittimere(Ruby) gained her UK and Irish title in 2010.

Ruby mated to Gill Bingham’s Kritiko High N Mighty at Steldawn  produced Jerry & Nancy Daly’s Ir Ch Whittimere Pandemonium  BIS St Patricks Day IKC all breed Ch Show   2011),  “Jake”  Ch &  Ir Ch Whittimere Platinum , “Trevor” Ir Ch Whittimere Pontiac  and “Niamh” Ir Ch Whittimere Pearl  

We are members of the KC Accredited Breeder Scheme and our aim is to own and breed dogs with the necessary health, type, construction and temperament for the breed. We only breed when we wish to retain a puppy for our family.  We welcome e-mails and friendship from across the World and hope you enjoy our new website.
