About Eminence Saint Bernards Dogs and the start of it here in Ireland and the uk
MOST CONSISTENT WINNING SAINT BERNARD EXIBITORS IN IRELAND AND TOP BREEDERS
We are proud owners and Exibitors of St Bernards. The Affix Eminence was born in 2005 and we have had dogs around us all our lives starting out with German Shepherds. Then we moved to St Bernards. All our dogs are much loved family pets and share our home with Myself my Husband and our two young boys Joshua and Reece. We have thouroughly enjoyed exibiting our St Bernards and have had a very successful show career with Bonnie our first St Bernard gaining three Green Stars, Two of which were Majors(on the old green star system)
Then we seen the most fantastic dog ever Bernegarden's Montgomery who really took are breath away. He opened our eyes to some beautiful St Bernards and we decided that this was the type of dog that we could only dream of having on the end of a lead. From there and unbenown to us a telephone call to Britt Halvorsen changed our lives forever. She offered us Fandango who was a grandson of Bernegarden's Montgomery and was a very promising young male. He was are first import St Bernard from Belgium and at only just 15 months recieved his Irish Championship Title. Fandango went on to gain his International Champion Title, European 2009 title and Annual Title 2008 and 2009 which is a Title for Top Winning St Bernard in Ireland.
Our Breeding Programme has started off with amazing success and am pleased to say that with Fandango and Bonnie who give us are first litter of two pups which one went on to a show home and produced a Champion- Ir Ch Eminence Ambassador, again we used Fandango with another female from Norway called IR, INT, NOR CH Bernegarden's Vanilla Sky she give us two puppies and one went on to become a Great British Champion, Irish Champion and first ever Smooth St Bernard in Ireland to gain his Irish Junior Champion Title this was GB, Irish Ch Eminence Better Believe It (Ir Jun Ch). Another female mated to Fandango was Int, Ir Ch Callas Van't Hof Ter Quinni (EW09) and out of the three puppies, two became Ir, Int Ch Eminence Caught Ya Lookin (ANCH 11) Top Winning Smooth Dog in 2011 and his sister Ir Ch Eminence Can't Forget You. We hope we will have many more Top Winning Dogs in the future from are breeding programme and many more Champions.
Our aim is to show and breed St Bernards for type, sound and temperament and to the highest quality we can achieve. We now consider Britt to be a good friend and mentor and giving us advice and help in our breeding programe and to bring in some dogs from the TOP kennels something we could never have thought possible. For this we must say a BIG THANK YOU, to you, Britt Halvorsen of Bernegarden Kennels for all her help, advice and support and of course all her hard work and dedication to this breed and these Terrific dogs who have done so well.
We hope you enjoy are dogs and come back to visit and follow are progress.
We would also like to say a BIG THANK YOU to all our friends out there who helped us along the way.
