Top Quality for Show, Obedience, Field, Fireside and Fun


Our small kennel is located in Holden, Maine on 12 fenced in country acres. We have been raising, training and showing our dogs since 1965. We strive to produce the English type conformation with gentle temperament and keen intelligence. Our dogs must meet strict standards before we consider breeding. This includes good health, annual eye clearances by licensed Opthalmologists andHip/Elbow clearances with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals.

Our dogs have been shown here in the States, in Canada, Bermuda and Puerto Rico. They have gone on to get their Show and Obedience titles. They have also been trained for field and as Therapy Dogs, Search and Rescue dogs, Arson and Drug dogs and Guide dogs. We currently have two being trained to work with Autistic children. Many more have gone on to be family companions. Their owners keep us updated on their progress and antics with photos.

A Puppy Packet goes with each puppy and is full of information to help them adjust. It includes aHealth Record, Pedigree, copies of the parents' hip and eye certifications, feeding tips and helpful ideas. We temperament test using the Volhard method so as to best suit the owner's purpose. All our puppies are sold on AKC Limited Registration. We do not sell dogs for breeeding and any we feel that might have show potential are kept on co-ownership.

Meadowmere puppies were featured in the BDN. See the article here.
