My Story

I have only been conformation showing, performance (Dock Diving, Agility, FastCAT, Scent Work) and raising Australian Terriers since 2017; however, we've had an amazing accomplishment this year (2021) by Winning Best of Opposite Sex at the 145th Westminster Dog Show!!!

We have the First Australian Terrier (Banjo) to qualify, receive an invitation, and attend the 2018 AKC/NADD Dock Diving Nationals!  We also have the First Female Australian Terrier (Georgia) to qualify, receive an invitation, and attend the First Ever 2020 AKC/NADD Dock Diving Regionals (the 2020 Nationals were cancelled due to COVID19).

Prior to 2017 we had our first Australian Terrier (Roscoe), for 10 years, due to my daughter's research and love of dogs.  It's due to her encouragement and watching her excel in sports and breeding of Golden Retrievers that I began my journey into the Preservation and Breeding of Australian Terriers.  My son, purchased my second Australian Terrier, Banjo, for me and we began our conformation and performance journey.  My mentors (of Temora Australian Terriers) include: Julie Seaton, Jennifer Sousa, Vicki McKee, Jacqueline Johnson and Terri Steinmez of whom I'm so grateful for their knowledge, guidance and my Foundation Bitch:

        (Multiple Best of Breed winnings, Multiple NOHS Group Winnings, Multiple NOHS Group Placings) 

I was told "A great foundation Bitch is so important; otherwise, you end up playing catch-up your entire breeding career." 


We have started Dahling Australian Terriers   .  .  .  Not a Kennel  .  .  .  as our dogs are all "House" dogs.

Our Mission Statement:  To be Preservation Breeders of Australian Terriers which conform to the standard and breed for: Conformation and Performance pushing our dogs to excel as well as being healthy and have great temperaments for pets in the home.

Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have, as we will not only be Preservation Breeders of Australian Terriers, but a source of knowledge for the Breed.
