We are so excited to share that Caradoc Kennel is the first and only Silver Breeder of Merit for Icelandic Sheepdogs.
If you aren’t familiar with the program, it recognizes breeders’ involvement and successes in AKC events and the dedication to completing health testing of all breeding stock.
Here is more information on the program :
Smudge represents what Icelandics were bred to do. She excels in herding among the other hobbies she has already titled in- Agility, obedience, rally and Therapy dog. Smudge loves to work and enjoys being with the family.
Ruckus is creating quite a Ruckus in her first years! She finished her AKC Championship from the puppy classes with all majors and Best of Breed wins over specials. She is a sweet girl with a wonderful work ethic. She is looking forward to getting into other dog sports!
Roka joined Caradoc Kennel from McEremon's Icelandics. She is an exciting flashy girl! When shown, the judges loved her movement and how she presented herself. She finished her AKC Championship easily and with just two litters, has produced multiple Champions, a Therapy dog and performance title earners.
Tati is the matriarch of the house. As Puck's littermate, she proved herself in the show ring with multiple wins over specials to finish her Championship. Happiest with a tennis ball in her mouth, she has been a wonderful mother. She passes on her wonderful temperament and love of life to all her puppies. Many of which have also had successful show careers!
