Breeders of Irish Terriers From Champion Lines
Creating Litters of Dogs With Lovely Temperaments
breeding fine Irish Terriers
Kincora Irish Terriers, LLC has been breeding fine Irish Terriers since 2006. We acquired our first dog in 1996 and began showing in 1997. The terrier’s call name was Cormac, and he came from a very old breeding line developed by Robert “Bobby” Clyde. At nine months of age, Cormac took Reserve Best of Breed at Sacramento.
About Irish Terriers
This breed is the known Irish farm dog. The Irish Terrier is a medium-sized dog of exceptional intelligence, keen senses, and personalities that range from thoughtful to exuberant.
Our Line’s Foundation
Excellent health, strong bodies, and solid temperaments are not usually an accident of nature. Careful study and great effort go into choosing the right parents to breed forward desirable traits. Our foundation bitch traces back to Bobby's "Cocksure" line. These dogs have heavier bones and shorter faces. Even today, they are recognized by some knowledgeable Irish Terrier enthusiasts as descendants of the Cocksure line.
We have been following the American Kennel Club’s (AKC) standards for the Irish Terrier breed since 1997. Our focus is to create a long-standing heritage of sweet and healthy Irish Terriers with a friendly temperament that is solidly built. At this time, all our adult females are AKC Champions, and all our males are either AKC Champions or Grand Champions.
The pups we raise receive Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) exercises from day 3 to 17 of life. These exercises were developed by the US military to produce well-grounded temperaments in their dogs. Our puppies are wormed and receive age-appropriate shots. At eight weeks, we do formal photos to analyze conformation, and we test the pups for temperament. When available, this involves an independent test team.
Unless we feel that we can expect our puppies to be better than their parents, we will not breed. To date, we have been pleased with the outcome.
