Brotherly Group 2s

One show was bigger than the other but Glen of Imaal Terriers now have another two siblings (as well as the Abberann boys) that can record Group Placements on the same day in different countries. In Finland Gleann Dynamite Mike took Group 2 at Seinajoki International and in the UK Gleann Dynamo Man at Jeonty also took G2 at Birmingham Gundog & Terrier!

At Lahti Puppy Show (12 Glens entered) BOB went to Rosears Miss Miimos with Rosears Master of the House Best Opposite

Discover Dogs is always a great place to meet Glen of Imaal Terriers. At ExCel this weekend Misty, Dylan, Toby & Candy flew the breed flag with style & aplomb….Toby in particular showing true Glen temperament!

Good weekend everybody.

On a lead or not?

It seems that  a future Glen of Imaal Terrier owner (never owned one before) thinks it ” very sad to see a dog on a lead in the countryside……. and they become nervous and defensive…….all breeds like to chase the occasional squirrel given half a chance…” and “To read that a Glen of Imaal should NEVER be walked off a lead is very off putting to say the least”. Obviously if the person concerned has a couple of fenced off acres or can guarantee that they won’t meet anybody or anything else it’s fine but in the normal course of events it is still a definite recommendation to follow the below (Taken from the Glen Services website) and it has to be asked why, if longtime experienced breeders do say that a Glen is best on the lead when out and about, would you consider one if you think a dog should be a free runner?.


Cars win – dogs lose
Walking is a good aerobic workout for both of you!
Lead walks protect wildlife.
Not everyone likes a strange dog in his or her face.
Walking with your dog creates a bond between the two of you.
Leads are cheap – your dog is irreplaceable.
“Never” happens more often than you think.
Your dog may be friendly – mine is NOT.
You are responsible for every action your dog takes.

Discover Dogs this weekend

Discover Dogs is at ExCel (London) this weekend. It is open from 10.00am to 5.00pm both days. Glen of Imaal Terriers, with their friends and helpers, are there both days and can be found on stand 82. If you aren’t from the South or South east ExCel can be a bit difficult to get to. Hopefully this will help a bit

A European weekend

A quieter weekend for Glen of Imaal Terriers but some very nice wins. McJake’s Angel-Lina was BOB in both days in Valmiera, Latvia, National dog show and she became Latvian Junior Champion whilst in Sunvalls (Sweden) Pearytail Bonnie B Goode took Best of Breed and so earned her International Championship. In Dortmund Germany it was the Bundesseiger Weekend and Fire & Ice Liberty & Fire & Ice Moonraker made it a double day double with BOb & BOS both days.

Well done!!
