About us ...
For more information feel free to give us a call we love to talk dog !
Our Affix 'CRUAGHAIRE' was granted in 2007.
It is a made up word which is an amalgamation of two gaelic words
Aoghaire (shepherd) and Cruach (mountain).
Our first GSD was Jades Wonder ( Jade ) and she introduced us to the breed and we fell in love. When we were looking for another companion animal we could not find anything that peaked our interest so we decided to have a litter from Jade instead.
We didn't know many people in the GSD world but we had met a lovely chap called Zampano von der Piste Trophe, a very handsome German Import, and we fell in love with him so we used him and from that litter we got our lovely Tia and it just spiralled out of control after that.
We then discovered showing ! We had started to train Tia before we discovered she was a long coat and as such we were unable to put her into the ring but we kept going and from Tia's first litter we kept a short coat female who got us hooked.
Since then we have done not too bad in the show world and now we are able to show our long coats it has opened up even more showing potential.
It is very much a family obsession with everyone helping out in one way or another.
Both myself (Susan) & Erin handle on a regular basis and the boys provide all the cuddles they can.
Then there are the friends we have made over the years.
It really is very much a social thing and we have become one big extended family !
Then we discovered IPO through going to the SV type regional events and so now as if we didn't have enough to do we are teaching ourselves all about the working side of the show world !
I will say one thing, its never quiet around here but i wouldn't have it any other way.
