I am interested in Kerry Blue Terriers. Does anyone have any available? Is it a closed group? Just learning about them in the virtual world, but seems no one is interested in putting them up for stud. Would love working with breeders to help one another.

Unfortunately, that breed is dominated by a super kennel (has been for a long time). Not sure if they sell their dogs.

Definitely a closed group, though people are working on breeding them, though I'm on upto about 30.0 should take about 4 or 5 months

I once had a whole kennel of Kerries who were all sessioned to try and keep up with the super kennel but it was impossible. Try the breed directory as there maybe kennels with the odd Kerry who will sell.

I have contacted several kbt kennels, only 2 responded. 1 saying when they had anything would contact me, we shall see. The other has 25 to 30 bitches and 8 or 10 males. Said she couldn't spare any, not even puppies. I had hoped a breeder would give some feedback.

Could someone maybe explain the purpose of the super kennel? Is the person or persons so insecure they don't want any competition?

Opinions or explanations are greatly appreciated.

They may have worked hard to get where they are, and I don't blame them for not selling.

You can breed and get there within 6 months I'm 1 month in lol

Very childish. Could it be they are afraid of competition? Hmmm....

This seems to happen in certain breeds. I don't get it. Alaskan Klee Kais are facing this issue now too.

Same thing in Azawhak. I can never spell that.

I attempted to get into the breed. Was able to purchase a nice female from someone who put her up for sale but when I went hunting studs, not a single one. And when I reached out to the other kennels they were disengaging and even though they had multiple males, they wouldn’t allow access. I didn’t get it but hey, to each their own. I FHed the female and moved on.

Hi, I use to be in Kerry’s and I left because competing with the super kennel was just annoying. It definitely wasn’t because I couldn’t keep up.. it was because they would put all of their dogs in 1 show with all the handlers.. leaving you with either competing with them regardless with a terrible handler and not winning. Or entering another show where there are no entries thus you couldn’t win points anyways. So I left. I claimed a couple of my old Kerry’s if you want them. I won’t be joining the breed back again tho.

Did you know?
The sit for exam is a modified version of the Stand for Exam. It is generally used in novice level classes and requires the handler to order the dog to sit and then to move away from the dog the length of the leash. The judge will then approach the dog and pet the dog's head.
