We have been fortunate in our journey in this delightful breed to have shown numerous dogs to top ranking standings. Some of our accomplishments include:
- Breeders of multiple group winning, RBIS and Specialty winners
- Breeders of multiple Best in Sweepstakes at National Specialties
- Recipient of multiple Dam of Distinction awards from BTCA
Below are some of the dogs we have bred/shown and most importantly loved.
Bucky is our 5th generation of Bedlingtons that we have bred., and we couldn't be more pleased with him. He's got a delightful personality, and is at home in the show ring, or on the bed. He is a specialty winner and RBIS winner, along with being a multi-group winning dog.
Tori, besides always being the class-clown, had a profound effect on our breeding program, only having had two litters, but producing two top winning dogs in those two litters; GCh. Elante One for the Money, and Ch. Elante Evening in Paris. Sadly, we lost Tori in 2021, at the age of 17.
Tim started out his show career with a bang, going Best in Sweepstakes at the National Specialty, quickly finishing his Championship, and being campaigned into the Top 10 for several years. Tim decided he wasn't done though, going on to earn his Canine Good Citizen award, along with Obedience and Rally titles.
Freddie was special from the word "go". He was a single puppy from Tori's first litter, and had that "look at me" attitude from the start. He was the first owner handled male to receive his Grand Championship when AKC instituted the Grand Ch. program and had a great show career, winning Best in Sweepstakes, Winners Dog and Best of Winners at the Bedlington Terrier Club of Greater Denver specialty show.
Alice was our foundation bitch. Her name appears behind every dog produced at Elante. Although never enamored with the show ring, she did finish her Championship. She was much happier in the whelping box, raising incredible youngsters to move the breed forward.
Oliver was the start of Elante, and his presence is still strongly felt in our breeding program.
Ivy is a recent addition to the Elante team, with the goal of diversifying our bloodlines. She's a joy to live with, and we are planning on a 2021 breeding to BISS, RBIS GCh. Elante Eight Second Ride.
Alexa's the latest addition to our program. She combines the best of both Bonnybrook & Elante breeding, with both her parents being Specialty winners. She's got a great personality to go with her looks, and we can't wait for dog shows to start, so we can introduce her to the fancy
