HISTORY OF OTLEY BORDER TERRIERS
My life has been centered around animals, from my earliest memories, I wanted to be a veterinarian. Since that dream did not come true I went to the next best thing: Showing, producing, loving, and caring about dogs and cats.
I started showing Irish Setters in 1973. While I had little success in the show ring they helped raise my children. A large male, my favorite, "Eric", taught two of my children how to walk, with undying patients and a tolerance for pain he carefully guided them as they hung on to his long red coat. He was my last and he passed away in 1987. I also showed, trained and admired German Shorthair Pointers up until 1995. They excelled in the field and as companions and watchdogs.
Otley Border Terriers was founded in 1986. They have met and exceeded all of my expectations. I have bred Best in Show and Multiple Group Wining Border Terriers, and some of them have produced Get that went on to become record holders and receive Best in Show awards.Otley Border Terriers is proud of our breeding program which includes, health testing, and only breeding top quality dogs with OFA Health Clearances who have excelled in Conformation competition and other venues. Border Terriers were bred to do it all, Earthdog (hunting), Service dogs, Therapy dogs, Obedience and Agility. See our dogs on our Performance page of this site. We continue to strive for excellence with each litter. Knowing that every puppy produced is not of Breeding/Show quality we do have the occasional puppy that will make a wonderful addition to your family. We have well bred dogs, with OFA Health Clearances for improving your lines and your life. Inquiries and visiting is encourage. Please give us a call to set
up an appointment.

Border Terriers are gentle loving companions that just love being apart of the family.
I breed mainly for temperament, movement and balance. Improving my lines with each litter is a goal we have achieved. My Border Terrier Puppies and my Border Terrier Dogs are calm, obedient, loving and have a willingness to please. We have Border Terrier Puppies on occation who are gentle enough to live with three Bengal Cats.
