This site is a work in progress. We did not intend to make a site but after being encouraged to publish one by many people here you have it.
Patterdale Terriers were not created to be a show dog or a lap dog. It was NOT developed to be a hiking companion or a simple pet.
Fell Terrier breeders bred them to locate quarry, and either hold it, dispatch it, or bolt it. Specifically in the earth. Depending on their intended quarry and the style of hunting the owners intends accomplish one may call for different hunting styles of dogs. As Patterdale terrier breeders all breeding are done with this in mind. THIS IS A WORKING TERRIER BREEDING PROGRAM.
Each style of dog has their place, but we know what WE like in a terrier. Which is a dog with a great nose, and a mike tyson approach to hunting. These are the traits that we breed for. We DO NOT breed dogs for the purpose selling to the public, we breed dogs to work them and improve the next generation. We breed for our own use however pups will be available to the public occasionally.
Patterdale Terriers tradition has always placed enfaces on "worker to worker" breedings. True to this tradition, if it is in our kennel and we bred them we have watched them work with our own two eyes.
We do not claim to have the best dogs on the planet as no one can make that claim, but we have not allowed ANY boundaries to conquer our quest to produce the best terriers possible for the jobs we expect them to excel in. While in search for foundation stock that met our standards we went through a total of 78 terriers over the course of the years before Settling on 8 solid terriers. ONLY 10.26% OF THE TERRIERS WE GOT FROM OTHER BREEDERS MET OUR STANDARDS. And we dealt with Terriers from every mayor Kennel/Breeder in our country as well as several in other countries.
BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HELPED US ALONG THE WAY!!!! SOMETHING AS GOOD AS WHAT WE HAVE CAN NOT BE ACCOMPLISHED WITHOUT HELP!
WELCOME TO "One of One Kennels" AKA "Tripple O Kennels"
We run heavy Cocker bred Patterdale terriers, with Schwab/Nuttall blood as our out. You will occasionally see other Patterdale Terrier breeders in our peds such as Booth, pick axe. We are currently working some Booth/Edwards/Jones and Cloots dogs, and look forward to seeing if these individuals make the cut.
Our foundation dogs are Cocker's Mayhem, Cocker's Malichi, Meton's Jezebel, Tertulia's Orus, Original Dogs Negri, Cockers DC and Roache's Candy. Each of these terriers have proven to be solid to exceptional producers and work the same.
That being said we like a good terrier regardless of the breeding behind it. We've have the pleasure of digging to Terriers down from Goulds Ken, Murdoch Jessie, Goulds Gypo, Murdoch big boy, Split Lip Slim, Diablo, Edwards Simon and Power packed Red Rocket up just to name a few. Murdoch is in our mind one of the best Fell Terrier breeders around.
We are firm believers of the saying "Dogs don't read paperwork".
However we are not fans of scatter bred Terriers as foundation stock. While we are aware a scatter bed terrier could be an outstanding worker, but breeding them could be hit or miss.
We expect our dogs to produce quality working terriers CONSISTENTLY. So our program is a tight line bred program as dogs bred this way produce more consistently. Our dogs will make a great addition to any yard.
Imports are not necessarily better by any means. Weavers Bones was arguably the best stud dog in this nation and he was bred right here in America, worked and tested by our respected friend T. Weaver.
But we also have imports from 3 different countries. Again this in and of itself does NOT make our dogs better but it DOES SHOW our commitment to the quality of our stock.
Our Mission is to blend our main dogs into a family of patterdale terriers that performs and produces consistently. If you get dogs off our dogs from another patterdale terrier breeder we can not say what they quality of those dogs will be. But if you get a dog or puppies directly from us we stand behind our fell terriers 100%.
We use our dogs to work Raccoon, Fox, Badger. Beaver, Bob cat and Groundhog. We are one of the few kennels in America that has worked Badgers with our dogs. We aim to keep our dogs true to type and maintain a healthy respect for the history of the breed (or type). Understand there has always been a large variance within the type in regards to size our terriers can range from as small as a 10lbs female to as large as a 25lbs male. However the vast majority of the dogs we produce will fall within the 13lbs-20lbs range.
