Welcome to the new look Cumbreck website. After 18 years of having a website which although has always been up to date it has always been pretty much the same, we also moved home and country from England to Ireland in 2015 so we decided on a complete overhaul, out with the old and in with the new. Please note as of Autumn 2019 we are now back from Bulgaria and living back in Republic of Ireland.
'After suffering many personal health battles and a round of intensive treatments which made me lose all 34" of my hair! a shock in itself to someone who loves their locks, we decided a warmer climate and a total life change were much needed. We will be back out showing dogs in 2018 but for the last few years it's been mostly on the back burner and our stud has dramatically became smaller due to my health, but we have quietly been working on a more focused direction with our breeding plans incorporating old established trusted lines from around the world with our own to ensure a healthy gene pool and a continuing excellence which we strive for........so for those thinking we had disappeared we can assure you we have not and we aim to be at Crufts representing our dogs, win or lose we will be proud because they'll be our own dogs who've gone through all the blood, sweat and tears with us '
Cumbreck have been a family strain of terriers since 1806 and an established line since 1950. Also Formerly known as Caldbeck JRT's a prefix which i own within the JRTCGB who we are no longer affiliated with due to changing to IKC in 1999 and the JRTCGB has very different views to KC recognition some of which i fully understand and respect but some i don't.
We have been and continue to be a life member of the Irish Kennel Club/FCI since 1999, our Cumbreck prefix/affix is registered both in the UK Kennel Club and Irish/FCI and Bulgarian/FCI.
Our kennel name comes from an amalgamation of Cumbria and Caldbeck (my old JRTCGB affix which couldn't be registered with the KC due to a breeder in Australia having it on another breed).
We are fully compliant with all microchipping laws and all dogs have been identified at time of registration from the very start of IKC holding assessments, that is 17 years of microchipped and verified dogs, all our dogs have Pet Passports and are health screened.
All our dogs are IKC registered, and some are KC registered (co-owned) or Bulgarian registered.
All our dogs are health tested before breeding and have usually accquired all grades at show or work to become breeding quality dogs.
