                                    About Us


My family have always had  dogs, my mother bred English Cocker Spaniels  under the Langdale prefix in the 1950/60s she then had a St Bernard that I showed for her in the 70s.

I have always been involved with dogs and horses.


I started showing and breeding my own dogs in the late 1970's, firstly with  Rough Coated Collies (Stoney Ridge Kennels) then Irish and Gordon Setters (Gensett Kennels).


I then had a big break from purebred dogs to concentrate on breeding, showing and endurance                       riding our purebred Arabian horses ( Ishta Lodge Arabians ).


A mountain biking accident ended my riding carreer and the death of my beloved part-bred Labrador, Clyde at 15 years old saw me on the hunt for a pedigree standard poodle.


I found Lacey, ( Phab's Lace and Fineness) a lovely Parti-Colour bitch who has since been                                                            spayed and rehomed.

  In 2011 from Tannah poodles Aust we obtained a stunning black female standard puppy Miss Bea (NZ CH Tannah Opal Night) now spayed and working as an autism service dog and Rufus (Tannah Red Hot Chili) now living with Jenny and family in Hamilton




                                                        Our dogs are house dogs. 


   They spend a lot of time on the farm where they hunt, swim and run to their hearts delight                                                    making them happy, healthy fit dogs.

In 2016 Due to ongoing problems from my accident that has made showing the

standards difficult we have decided to downsize to Miniature poodles --- we will be

showing and later breeding silver Minis, we still intend to breed the occaisonal litter of standards.
