We are located in Muskego, a small town outside of Milwaukee WI and as of 2019 also in Long Grove IL.
I have been conformation showing, breeding and raising Australian Terriers since 1995. I am a member of the parent club - The Australian Terrier Club of America and served on the BOD for several years. I have been the Newsletter editor for 9 years and retired from that job at the end of 2019. I worked with the webmaster to create a newer, friendlier website and am in the process of creating an archive website which will hold the history of the breed in the USA. I am also on the BOD for Australian Terrier Rescue.
In 2006, my first home bred AKC champion Aussie - CH Temora Bully For You ROM EX was the #1 Australian Terrier (all-breed) and the #2 Australian Terrier (breed) in the USA. He was also my heart dog and although he is no longer with us, his legacy lives on in his offspring.
In 2016, Bully's grandson, MBIS MRBIS MBISS GCHG CH Temora Say It With Bacon achieved not only his first Best in Show, but he also accomplished 'The GRAND SLAM' when he won all FOUR of the LARGEST awards for our breed; Best in Specialty Show (our National Specialty, NOT a Regional Specialty), Best of Breed at the Montgomery show, Best of Breed at the AKC National Show, Best of Breed at Westminster and Best in Show! This has only been done by one other Australian Terrier, BIS BISS GCHS CH Kambara's Zebulon who's dam is CH Temora's Flight To Kambara.
In 2019, I have partnered with several other Breeders/Owners/Handlers to expand Temora kennels and enhance my breeding program. With this partnership, we are NOT increasing our breedings, we are just like individuals committed to preserving the breed as we know it. We still plan on only having a few litters per year.
We do not have a kennel, our dogs are all 'House' dogs.
ALL of our puppies are raised in our homes with other people, kids and dogs. They live with us and are inside living life to the fullest no matter what house they are at! Puppies are exposed to different stimuli to help make them dependable puppies with stable temperaments. They are fun and funny good natured puppies who will grow up to be fun and funny good natured adults!
Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have, we are here not only as a Breeders, but as a source of information about the Breed.
Our goal is the same! To Raise, Show and Breed Australian Terriers that are Happy - Healthy Dogs with Correct Size, Color and Temperament but also Conform To the Standard.
