I apologize for my delay in getting a "testimonial" and pictures off to you. School started and life got crazy. . . every weekend has been booked solid. Attached please find some recent pictures of our precious Ike and following are my thoughts about this wonderful guy.
Ike is by far the most intelligent, well socialized dog we have ever owned. He is one year and three months old now and is the joy of our home. He is continually learning new things and loves people. One of my greatest delights is that he is my daily running companion. We run together on average 3 -4 miles at least 6 days a week. I have not taught him "heel", but instead, "LEFT" which he immediately obeys and runs on my left. When a vehicle approaches from either direction, he sits and stays until I tell him to begin running again. As time has progressed, he is less and less distracted by scurrying rodents, birds, other people and anything else we encounter on our runs. Just yesterday a neighbor drove up to us, stopped his vehicle to chat briefly and Ike never left his seated position, even though the neighbor spoke to him from the car window.
Ike is a voracious chewer, and so we rely on Nylabones to soothe this need. When we eat a meal, Ike finds his bone and is busy occupying himself while we eat.
He loves to be held, (all sprawling 20 pounds of him!) is calm and not aggressive around other dogs and is enthusiastic about play time. He calms and settles easily and is very obedient with minimal correction. He is the perfect dog.
We just wanted you to know how one little dog brought so much joy to our lives! My husband had to retire because of health issues and this little guy gives him the motivation to getup and move! Thank You again for our beautiful boy!!
Things are going well with Gryffy. He really likes people and other dogs. These pictures are of a visit this weekend to my parents house. The two dogs have been doing great together.
I just thought I would give you an update on one of your puppies. one that found his home in Calgary AB. He had his 2nd birthday on August 1/15 and had a special party with many of his friends. We had a small dog race which he won with ridiculous ease; a dog swim which he did not participate in, even though he has a life jacket, just in case; a ball through which he participated in; and a hot dog eating contest which he doesn’t care much about.
He is a funny little guy ands his own attitudes; recall only on his terms; only eats when he wants and lounges on his couch when dinner is prepared.
He is a great dog and has a great life; he goes to walkabout with a commercial dog walker 2 - 3 times a week to play off leash with the pack mates and runs around the farm with the Captain, the whippet, on the farm where they reside 1/2 the time. He runs with me on occasion and has no trouble with 12 mile runs.
He has a very rough coat, fairly long running down the middle of his back (like a Mohawk) and his sides are smooth and shorter…maybe they are all like that, but it is quite unique in my experience.
I hope you got the picture I sent of his birthday cake….it was spectacular …1/2 dog cake and 1/2 human cake made by a professional cake maker. If you didn’t get it, let me know and I will send you another one….it was one of a kind.
Good luck in any more trials and continue breeding these fabulous creatures, Gigi
Greetings Gaye !
We are so VERY thrilled to be Ike's parents. He is an amazing dog, intelligent, personable, adaptable, LOVEABLE. We wanted to share with you our thoughts regarding his upbringing under your care. We are so impressed with how socialized he is, he loves interacting, being a part of our family, and being handled. He is able to calm quickly, both through our handling and on his own. Your care, early training and breeding are extremely evident in his personality and behavior. He never displayed any discomfort at being away from his litter mates or mother, just walked into our homes and hearts and behaved as though he'd been with us from day one.
He is nearly housebroken, indicates when he needs to go out to eliminate and of course, looks forward to the ensuing treat ! I believe he knows his name, is beginning to associate "come" and "sit" with rewards.
Thank you again for such an amazing dog / baby / lover / family member ! I will send pictures soon.

I am happy that you are proud of Wesley and think he is a good representative of Conquest Terriers. It is an understatement to say I am enjoying him!!! I am about him like I was Gatsby—I never want to go anywhere and leave him! I cannot ever look at his face without marveling at how cute he is!
He is beyond adorable! Even people with darling dogs say he is the cutest they have ever seen. I almost feel sorry for them and their dogs! Wesley is the best possible companion. He hikes or runs as long as I want to and never gets tired. He loves people, especially children and adores to have them stop and pet him.
When I go to the barn to ride he politely gets in his crate and waits for me with nor complaints. Then when I go to another barn to ride yet another horse, he does the same thing all over again, never “complaining” even when other dogs are running around freely. He hates loud noises, especially motor cycles, even when he is in the car. That is just his phobia so I have to guard him with diligence at all times. Other than that he is perfect!! And, really, I would never let a JRT run loose under any circumstances. That is why I have kept mine until their late teens!
I can never stop being grateful to you for sending me the most wonderful dog you have ever bred!!

It’s been three years since I picked up
Conquest Wildeflower (or just Trout to me) from your friend
and partner in Canada. I wanted to write you and to say what
a wonderful addition she has made in my life. I currently
live alone in Syracuse away from friends and family as I
attend graduate school and Trout is my saving grace every
day. Its such a joy to come home to her smile and wag.
You’ve given me the companion of a lifetime and we are
totally inseparable. Although she killed several chickens at
my mothers farm in her youth, she has begun to mature into a
truly special dog. We love backpacking, camping, and of
course cuddling on the couch together.
This past weekend we did a little winter
camping and she spent the entire time hunting for shrews and
tearing apart rotten logs (her favorite pastime). I honestly
don’t know what I would do without her. She is a kind,
gentle, caring, and personal dog that everyone seems to take
a very special shine to. In fact I’m certain that several of
my friends not to mention landlords are more fond of her
She truly captures the Jack Russell
spirit of big (hearted) dog in a little body. Please pass
this along to your partner in Canada whom I picked Trout up
I love her so much, my sincerest thank

I just wanted to take a second & tell you how happy I am with the puppy that
I got from you. "Believe" is everything I was looking for in a terrier. She
has the temperament, structure, drive & attitude to excel at agility. She
is amazingly easy to train, seems that I only have to show her how to do
something once, & she's got it all figured out!
And she amazes me how fast she is already, she can catch my border collies
when they are out running & playing! I have to be careful when I take her
to agility trials, everyone keeps threatening to steal her, they all like
her so much! I have a feeling that's only going to get worse when she is
old enough to start competing!

I can't thank you enough for taking the time and knowledge to breed such
wonderful dogs. You and your kennel are an asset to the Jack Russell
community, as your dogs really do improve the breed. You don't mind if I
don't tell the agility world about your dogs do you........ I'm afraid that
words going to get out anyway!

I also wanted to

still but I am so proud of how she handled
everything. For your information she measures

- Miss Believe ran agility again this past weekend. She won
both the 12” Steeplechase and the 12” Grand Prix, receiving a
bye for the regional championship event and getting her ½ way
qualified for the national event…. Guess I now need to think
I keep meaning to tell you that I’m so impressed about how much
of a Balanced dog Believe is temperament wise. Time and time
again I see her handle herself so well in any situation. I have
a JRT foster right now that can get over the top and Believe
will correct her and then turn around and play with her again.
Such a wonderful thing to see in a JRT!

thank you enough for your recommendation of Fleet! He
is just the most incredible little guy and everything
you described him to be. His personality is so charming
and engaging and he constantly makes me smile. Never a
problem with the other dogs and he fits right in.
When I first saw him in person at the airport, it was
literally love at first site. He's confident, playful,
smart, energetic, thoughtful and just naughty enough to
keep you on your toes.
His cuteness has no bounds! If all that wasn't enough,
he has that wonderful athletic structure to go along with his perfect smooth coat.

Wow, what a great weekend for Fleet
and myself. I took him with me as the sole lucky
pup this weekend to run him in his first agility
trial ever. I'm the trial secretary for this
agility club and usually don't bring any of my dogs
so this was a real treat for both of us.
I have to say, Fleet has really
impressed me on so many levels. From his GREAT
attitude about anything to his sheer joy to run and
play and then his ability to get serious and focus
what's on task. Just pure pleasure.
I've never debuted with any of my
dogs at 15 months so was a bit cautious about doing
it with Fleet. Had he shown even the tiniest bit of
lack of confidence, I would have scratched the rest
of his runs. But each time I brought him into the
ring, he was anxious and ready to go. I don't plan
to enter him in any other trials until he is at
least 18 months since I still have some other things
I want to continue to proof. Of course the training
never ends but that's the part I love most!
Here are a couple of his videos from
the weekend. I'm so lucky to have him in my life!
Thank you so much and enjoy!
Editor's note: Fleet was purchased with the intention of
training and competing in high level agility competitions
Fleet is a full brother to
I wanted to share another video with
you. These are the weave poles that I've been
working on with Fleet for the last
couple months. It was the last obstacle that I
still needed to train. So now we'll be working
mostly on handling and jump sequences. I'm hoping
to have his "for real" debut the middle of October.
You can see how having that great
structure makes everything he does so effortless.
Just wanted to personally email you and thank you for the
fantastic dog you have given us. My mother has already
emailed you on a previous occasion, but I had to take it
upon myself to personally thank you for our little boy.
Harley (Conquest Cigar) was born out of Hanna, on January
27 2011. We have had him since April 2011, when my mother
went down to Hamilton with my grandmother for surgery and
went down to visit the pups/ pick him up. He is the most
FANTASTIC dog I could ever imagine. I work at the local
humane society and see plenty of dogs come through. Harley
comes for visits with me at work, helping to socialize dogs
and test cats for households with dogs. He is supremely
pleasant and very laid-back.
We recently got professional photos taken at
a fundraiser for the humane society which I work at and I
thought I would attach a few for you to see!!! I must say,
Harley shocks people with his pleasant demeanor everywhere
he goes. As soon as he came into the photo studio, the
photographer said "oh here we go, another Jack Russell.
Little did he know that Harley is a special Jack Russell
and that he was in for a surprise. I just said "you wait"
and followed the photographer into the studio. At this
point his collar and leash were both removed, and the
photographer asked me if I could TRY to keep him in one
place so he could take a photo. Well, Harley wanted to
prove this man wrong in the worst way, and not only did he
stand and lie down exactly where he was told to on command,
he would also direct his head in the direction the
photographer wanted. Needless to say, the photographer was
in shock with our little boy. He has done this to people on
I have big plans for our Harley! We have already
conquered a lot of tricks together; the usual sit, lie down,
and shake were menial tasks for Harley, who has already
learnt to stand, play dead, roll over, crawl, twirl, and
jump into our arms on command. I have plans to start him in
agility this summer (hopefully), and also plan to get him
certified as a therapy dog once he gets his puppy jitters
out of his legs (he still gets a little excited meeting new
I just wanted to thank you for our amazing Harley, who is
the most loving dog I have ever met. He is such a suck, he
even asks to be picked up and likes to give us "hugs" where
he will put his arms around our necks and rest with his head
on our shoulder. This is his favourite thing to do, and he
always has to give us a hug as soon as we walk in the door.
He is very special, and I cannot imagine our lives without
him. I cannot stress what a fantastic, amazing, loving,
gentle, friendly dog you have given us.
Thank you so much for Harley,
Ariana Spina, and the Spina Family
It's been awhile, how are you? Trust all is well.
Well, it's hard to believe that it's been 17 years since we turned that 18
wheeler into your driveway and ended up staying for barbecued pork chops and
a bottle of red wine.
It is with sadness that we must tell you that our beloved "Maddy" has
passed. She left us Sunday afternoon peacefully at home with her family at
Since Sunday, we have been celebrating her life and the joy and happiness
she brought to us. She was truly a special dog and we are going to miss her
deeply. We feel she lived a healthy, happy and fulfilling life and for that
we are grateful.
Thank-you Gaye for giving her to us.

PanDora was so cute this morning during her nap time, I had
to take some more photos. It’s hard to resist cuddling with
her all day in this chilly, wet weather. We took a little
break from our good citizen classes for the month of January
to give me more time to make sure we know how to do
everything we learned in the first 6 week class. And when I
say we, I mean WE—I mess up the wording, and she looks at me
like….what? So we both needed to firm up our skills. We
start again the first week in February. The instructor
thinks she will be an excellent therapy dog when we are all
I had a scary moment the other day, I took PanDora to Pet
Smart to get some things, and as she got out of the truck I
dropped the end of the leash (like an idiot) and Pandora
started to trot away. I resisted screaming out her name and
running after her, and instead said in my best “alpha
voice”—Pandora---come. She stopped, turned around, looked
at me and trotted right to me. Of course, I was relieved,
but also I was so thrilled to see our training work at a
stressful and dangerous moment. Needless to say, she got
extra toys in pet smart after a huge celebration of goodness
in the parking lot. This little girl is just such a joy to
have. I can’t thank you enough. Hope all is well with

March 2013 -This
past weekend, on Friday night, I got a terrible toothache.
Apparently I had an infection in a back tooth that was
easily the most painful thing I have ever had. Now, that’s
been fixed today – and I’m fine, but more importantly I
wanted to share with you just how amazing and wonderful
PanDora was with me this weekend. She tried so hard to help
me, and never left my side. If I was laying on the bathroom
floor sick from the pain meds, she was right there with
me. Face to face, just looking at me with those beautiful
brown eyes. If I was miserable with pain, she was in my lap
with her head on my chest, just laying there not sleeping
just watching. When I did fall asleep, when I woke up she
was curled by my side. I started to worry she wasn’t eating
and drinking either, so I laid down by her water bowl and
food dish. It was then that she took the time to eat and
drink. More than once she let me just hold her and cry into
her fur. She is such an amazing and loving little dog. Thank
you for sharing her with me – I didn’t think I could
possibly love her more than I did last week, but I clearly
do. Keep raising these special dogs. Only a dog raised with
love could be this caring and loving to a human. Thanks
Note: PanDora is a full sister to Fleet (see testimonial
above near the top) and
Rider. Both of
Pandora's grand fathers - Fox Run Rivet and Conquest Jock
were certified Therapy dogs with T.D.I.

Good Morning Gaye,
I hope this email finds you well, best wishes for the New Year I hope you
had a lovely holiday season.
Anyway just an update Kat now known as Lucy has settled in very well I have
attached some pictures as you can see she is having no issues with my other
She loves her crate in my bedroom with Max laying by her crate not a peep
out of her she will sleep 6 hrs in the night I put a heated bean bag in with
her and cover the crate.
Toilet training is going extremely well she knows her spot in the yard and
she now fusses to get out to go potty.
She has a nice personality and charms everyone. Lucy comes on our walk,
keeps up, and comes when called.
I am delighted with her and her intelligence so thank you very much for
breeding such lovely Jacks.
Lucy is now 15 months old and is a true jack
Russell she is delightful and friendly very well balanced and we have no
issues with her at all. You can see from my updated pictures she is a member
of our family and we love her….thx

I wanted to send you something to add
to your testimonial page. I can't believe it was over 17
years ago Mark and I drove to your farm near Brantford for a
visit and to see the terriers. Nothing could have prepared
me for what I saw that day. You were so wonderful with us
and explained the importance of being prepared to own a Jack
Russell. We could tell how much you cared about where the
pups were placed and that they would be a good fit with the
new owners. Mark and I went home to get ready for our new
pup. Months later you phoned to tell us you had a pup for us
and she had a lot of energy, were we up for it. I remember
like yesterday the first time we saw Peanut, of course she
was the only pup that had escaped from the puppy pen, we
knew she was perfect for us. For the next 16 years our
hearts were full every day. Peanut provided us with
laughter, companionship, unconditional love and in the end a
life lesson in strength and courage. Peanut had become
arthritic in her later years but she woke every morning and
sat and barked under the cupboard that had her medicine in
it. She loved life and being engaged, when she could no
longer go on walks we would pull her in our wagon and after
we would carry her up the stairs she always gave us a kiss
as if to say thanks. One morning at 16 and a half she passed
at home on her own, this didn't surprise us as she was the
boss right to the end. The pain seemed unbearable, and my
phone call to tell you was difficult to make. You told me to
maybe consider another pup but I didn't think I would ever
be ready. I phoned you a few times and logged onto your site
to see what was new, but wasn't really sure I would ever get
another dog. The morning you called me to say there might be
a pup available for us I was scared and excited at the same
time, it was hard to know if we were ready for another dog.
Your wonderful friend Laura brought the pup closer for us to
get. What can you say... the minute the pup was in my arms I
knew it was meant to be. I only wish I would have gotten her
a little sooner as we would have been able to move forward
after our loss more quickly. We named her Dixie and she an
amazing addition to our family. She loves to run and play
and equally loves to cuddle in your arms. We will never
forget our wonderful memories of Peanut but know we will
make new ones with Dixie.
Peanut, as an older lady celebrating her birthday
Dixie, the new puppy & canine love of their lives
Thank you so much for making our lives full once more.

Please feel free to use the
attached photo of Conquest Quick ... note how amazingly she is running on
the wall in the curve and seems to know just where the sandbag has braced
the tunnel at the end so that she can leap off the sandbag (FAR more stable
than the floppy tunnel wall). I will try to get more of them to you so you
can have a choice ... esp. some that were taken this weekend where a
different photographer was so cracked up about Quick's photos that he made a
point of tracking me down in a different class in order to get more
pictures) ... in the two I saw she was coming through the weave poles with
NO FEET ON THE GROUND and coming out of a tunnel with NO FEET ON THE GROUND.
The photographer said he had literally NEVER seen a dog going through the
weave poles in such a way that ALL feet were off the ground at one time, and
he was hoping to make a composite photo for me from this weekend, all with
NO FEET ON THE GROUND!
This dog is SO AMAZING! We have been struggling for control (full speed,
well, actually 'accelerating' is her ONLY speed), and this weekend's three
day trial we had a big breakthrough (in fact the photographer excitedly told
me he got more photos of my dog and then acted a bit doubtful that it was
the same dog because it was so much better under control today than
yesterday ... really a breakthrough when the photographer notices!!).

Needless to say,
having a puppy Jack
is a handful, but we
would not change
anything. Moxie is,
to say the least,
all that and more.

much. She is
agile, fast and
funny all rolled
into one. We have
had such fun with
her and she has
certainly filled our
little world with
laughter. She is
also an amazing

is taken with her.
Moxie is one year
old now and some of
her favourite things
are swimming, long
treadmill, and her
toys, but especially
just being with us.
We are just looking
into agility and

second for us.

So it's Scout's birthday today, and I just wanted to let you know that we
worked everything out. The problem was that Scout was given free range of
the house too soon. I have started putting her back in the kitchen again
while I'm away, and since she is familiar with this space, she seems to be
much more comfortable. She is not destructive anymore, and will easily hold
it in for the entire time that I'm away, which on occasion can be up to 9.5
to 10 hours. I think that the early AM walks are helping her too.
I'm super happy that Scout is in my life, and just wanted to let you know
that she's turning out to be an amazing companion.
Finally, here's a cool picture of Scout playing with her frisbee.

Gaye, you have no idea what joy you brought into our lives
when you decided that your beloved "buddy' Ranger would be
the perfect dog for us.
It's very rare that a person can
do business over long distances and 2 countries without
seeing the product they are buying when dealing with
merchandise and getting 100% satisfaction and here we are,
talking of an animal ( that for me is like a child) and we
had all but 1 communication ( the evening you phoned us) by
e-mail and everything went so smoothly.
From the first e-mail I sent you
explaining our situation and the fact that I have ALS and
that my days are numbered to your decision to let Ranger
come into our lives knowing that you would loose the sale of
a "stud" animal with great pedigree but you felt that he
would be the perfect dog for us with his gentle disposition
and great mind.
You looked after getting him
neutered for us and also looked after the purchase of a
kennel for us and vet visit to have his last check up and
everything in order prior to my husband picking him up from
you. You answered every questions and e-mails these "new
parents" had immediately and gave us all your
recommendations for food and medical check-ups etc...When we
found out that due to our trip and then the airline's
embargo on live cargo until after the Holiday season would
delay our receiving Ranger for a couple of months, you and
Tom looked after acclimatizing him into your house from a
And what can we
say about the ease it was to receive him from the USA to
Canada. You drove to the Canada border crossing and looked
after all the formalities, met my husband and his friend at
a restaurant to deliver Ranger in his kennel with all his
documents etc and then drove back to your house in NY.
Bernard and Jim said that it was truly an emotional time for
them seeing you with Ranger and how it touched them so
profoundly when you said goodbye to him. Only a breeder with
a good heart would be so very touched when an animal leaves
them for another home.
As I am writing you, my baby is
laying in his daybed in my office looking outside the patio
doors. He has truly bonded with us and totally adapted to
his new home. Everyone that comes to the house is greeted by
our 4 legged boy and he sure knows how to get cuddles from
all. People now come to visit Ranger first...then us!!!!!!
He's Bernard's shadow but I can tell you that at night he
sleeps with me...his mommy! And when I say sleeps with me I
don't mean on my side of the bed I mean he literally lays
his head down across my stomach and loves it there all night
Thank you again Gaye for all you
have done to bring such happiness to us during these

We were in Petsmart (no reception) when you called.
Harley is amazing, he listens to my commands. He's such a good boy and let
Tom know yes he was watching TV. He slept in the crate last night with no
problems. He is using the litter box like a pro. I would like to know what
type of food do you
feed Harley & if you can send out the revised pet agreement.
Thank you again for choosing us as Harley's new family. He will be well
taken care of.

I decided to write to you today to share a few pictures
and detail some of our lil jacks progress. I came across
the idea while at the dog park near our home, where i
ran into another JRT owner who also had picked up a
female russell from you. It was a 16 month old female
named Maggie (i think he said the original name of the
dog was "Splash", and that she was the last puppy in the
litter. The owners name was Dave)
Buffy is our JRT my wife picked up on Jan 8th 2010.
Buffy is pretty much at her full weight and barring a
growth spurt, she is at anywhere from 13.6 to 14 lbs.
She sat nicely for me on the scale at the vets today and
it hit 14 for the first time!
She has adapted very well in the home with us. She is
exercised regularly with my wife taking her for 1 to 1.5
hr long walks everyday, barring torrential downpours or
all round miserable weather. Her puppy walks during last
winter were short and swift, and we had to jury rig and
modify a coat for her so it would fit properly. Now she
has two good coats for this winter so she is well
She has been through puppy training with a very good
trainer, and clicker trained. Link here
Buffy was one of his star pupils! She is fully
toilet trained and very happy and obedient to commands
at home. She has sit, down, stay, touch, shake, and off
learned flawlessly. She also understands 'go to bed' for
sleep and 'inside' for going into her crate and into our
vehicles. She is 100% approachable and friendly, has
zero food or toy aggression, full bite inhibition and
super sweet disposition. Her social skills are amazing.
We are still working on recall in a high stimulus
environment like a dog park. When there are no
distractions she will come when called upon, but we
become 'invisible' when there are dogs to be played with
or squirrels and birds to chase. Such is the nature of
the beast I suppose :)
Buffy's been a wonderful joy to have and we just wanted
to make sure you knew how well she is doing and her
accomplishments to date. I've included a link to one of
my facebook album pages that contain her. I will also be
putting up some of our older video and new ones of her
obeying commands to my youtube channel soon. i will send
you those links of her when they are up. I have some of
her videos up on facebook right now but cant share them
unless you have a facebook account.
Thank you for allowing us to have Buffy, she's been the
greatest addition to our family and can't imagine a
world without her now!
Mike & Sandra & Buffy S.
is doing wonderfully. We are so crazy about her & she's
good girl. Such a sweet temperament but feisty & brave
as a Jack
should be! I'm thinking of doing agility training with
her because I
suspect she will do well & will enjoy it. She learns
very quickly &
hopefully I will since I've never done it before!
We can't thank you enough for our beautiful girl - she
is the easiest
puppy we have ever had.
Hope all is well with you, take care.

I just wanted to "thank you" for 15
years of love, affection and companionship! I got my
"Jake" from you at 7 weeks old in 1995. He was the
offspring of Loblolly Lazer and Conquest Custard. The
quietest and largest in the litter. I know you had some
apprehension about us. We were young (I was 25 years
old), newly married and living in downtown Toronto. But
Jake fit right in and as our family grew (we have 3
kids) he grew right along with us.
He has been a constant presence in my life. Jake
accompanied me everywhere I went right up until this
past November, 2009 (he developed arthritis so it was
too cold for him to be outside for very long). He walked
my kids to and from school everyday, he went shopping
with me, ran errands with me, and was a constant source
of security when my husband was out of town. He loved
our cottage. Walks, swimming, paddle boat rides and
digging. He had the best life and it showed! He was
always very healthy until about 6 months ago. He slowly
lost his sight and hearing. He started to develop
arthritis and was quite stiff. About 6 weeks ago he
started to pace all the time and walk in circles. I knew
it was the beginning of the end and I was devastated. We
made the most of every last minute with Jake.
This past Thursday (March 2010) we
all said "goodbye" to our beautiful "Jake". After 6
months of deterioration I knew it was time to let my
friend go. He could no longer walk. I am heartbroken and
never expected to be so sad.
Thank you for the (best) 15 years I
had with such an amazing companion and friend. I will
never forget him. I loved him more than I ever

Thank-you for your
guidance and time working with us on the integration of
a new pup, Claus, into our home. We do appreciate your
consultation and extra care with the introductions.
As a small gesture of our appreciation, we have made a
donation, as thanks to "Conquest Terriers", to the Jack Russell
Terrier Research Foundation.
Although their research takes many donations to support
their work, hopefully our $100.00 positively contributes
to the betterment of the JRT breed in a small way.
Thank-you very much,

Claus' big day - going
home with his new family:)
May 5, 2010 a follow-up email with a new picture as
Hello Gaye, I thought you’d like to get an update on
Lando (formerly “Claus).
you can see from the attached picture, he has grown
considerably – almost 6 kg at 5+ months old. He has the
most amazing temperament. Anyone who meets him can see
that he is always happy, with his tail wagging whenever
he is interacting with people. He and Kelly get along
very well. We have not had a single incident involving
serious aggression (touch wood), although they’ve each
fallen into their respective roles well with Kelly being
the dominant one. They play constantly in the house and
backyard, with a routine of play sessions throughout the
day I’ve noticed. He clearly loves to be around her and
she really enjoys his companionship.
Gord and I are so pleased to have him as “our boy” –
he’s a sweet JRT who has enriched our lives. He began
his puppy training (John Menzies does send his regards
by the way) and is doing well.
I just wanted to
write a quick note of "Happy Holidays" and again THANKS!
Thanks SO much for breeding
I'm sure you remember Hattie - (A.K.A. Lacey). I
couldn't imagine my life without her!
She is ME
in "dog form". I cannot wait until she get a little
older and set in her ways
to get her a brother. You haven't heard the last of us!
Thanks and Happy Holidays - Genevia and Hattie,
It is difficult to put in words how much we love,
appreciate and adore our new Conquest puppy "Jake".
He is the perfect example of fine breeding,
wonderful temperament, smart and fun dog all in
The shipping process went unbelievably well. Kudos
Continental Airlines. He arrived on time and
was delivered directly to us in the terminal (happy
with tail wags). Continental was extremely careful
and obliging .
Jake is already part of the family, playing with our
Jack Russell and teething on our fingers.
We are so happy with him that we wish we had six

Just a little
update on Jake. He is 7 lb. Got his second
shot today. Everyone wants him...He knows his
name, comes on recall and sits most of the
time. He learns things every nicely. He and
Murphy are buddies. We could NOT be happier.
Oct. 21, 2009 - Another a quick update on
Jakie. We went to our first training class
today. Karin his teacher had him running
thru the tunnel, jumping over the bar and up
and down the V bars in just one try. He
loved it. He is very smart and tooooo cute
for his own good.
Hope all is
well with you. I will send pictures from
our next class.
arrived safe and sound. She was just perfect. We live
about 45 minutes from the airport. Jane held her on her
lap and she kissed her all the way home. When we got
home we fed her and she ate like she was starved. We
have the training pads for her to go potty. She went as
soon as we got home like she had held it for hours. We
got the heating pad and kennel set up and she sent to
sleep. About 4:30 this morning she let us know she had
to go potty. I put her out and she went immediately
then back in the kennel and she sent right to sleep and
slept until almost 9:00 this morning. She got up went
potty on the pads, had breakfast and wants to be a lap
dog with us now. We love her and she is adorable. She
is smaller than I thought she would be but what a

raising our little Lily.

continue to enjoy our Lily. She has not had a single
potty accident since we got her. She is fetching a
little ball. It is so cute. We can’t believe that she
is doing all these things at such a young age and she
is so tiny!! What a delight. We have a large fenced
back yard and she is enjoying exploring and running with
the kids. We didn’t think we would enjoy her as much as
we do. She still sleeps about half way through the
night then lets us know she has to go potty, we take her
out on the deck off our bedroom and she goes almost
immediately, we put her back in her bed and she sleeps
until about 8:30-9:00. Now how could she be any better

We have had Sam for 6 months now and I just thought you
might like to have an update on how he is doing. As you
can see from the pictures, he is fitting into our family
just perfectly.....from games night to sitting in his
bed so politely with his legs crossed!!! He is a great
dog – full of energy for our walks and playing at the
park with the kids, but also so happy to curl up beside
us to watch a movie. He really has become a bit of a
mommy’s boy though.... he is my little shadow,
everywhere I go, he is only a step behind. As you know
when we got Sam, we had recently lost our first JRT and
we were really hurting from that loss. Sam has helped
all of us through that, and although we still miss our
Mazee deeply, this new little guy has brought us so much
joy. We are really looking forward to camping with him
and taking him to the cottage with us this summer - we
are anxious to see if he is going to be a swimmer like

Just thought I'd send you off a quick note on how
Tango & Sassy are doing (Sassy is now called
Tinker)... They've become very close to each other,
and have quite a bond. They have totally different
personalities, Tango is laid back while Tinker is
always on the go! Although both value their cuddle
time on the couch with us equally.
I've attached a few pics for you, the one of Tink
and the foal was just taken last night. Our latest
foal was born yesterday morning, and he's become
Tinker's baby... She sleeps in the corner of his
stall when we are doing chores, and will lay next to
him when we're in the stall. It's really something,
that she has these mothering instincts on a baby 10x
the size of her.

watching carefully over her adopted baby
I am moving west on Monday, to Alberta, and have
decided to leave both Tink & Tango with Mom & Dad. I
just couldn't split them up, and the rest of my
family loves them so much, I thought that this would
be the best decision.
Shortly after making the decision to leave the dogs
here, I was researching breeders in Alberta. It
crossed my mind to get another pup off of you, but I
didn't want to take a young pup on the airplane
(although I'm sure you do it all the time). I
thought it would be best to get settled in before
bringing a pup into the house.
The woman I purchased a pup from is Suzanne Hunt of
Foxwillow Terriers. After having such quality dogs
from your breeding program, I have become quite
particular on choosing a pup. I noticed Suzanne had
some of your breeding in her program, and after
going to visit her and her dogs, I chose a pup out
of her current available litter. The mother of the
pup is a Rivet Granddaughter.
So much for this being a 'quick note'... I just
wanted to let you know how much happiness Tinker and
Tango bring to our lives, they're perfect little
Thanks again for breeding such wonderful dogs!

Tag and I have competed twice in agility trials in novice. We
started off with a BANG! Tag qualified and placed first at her
first real agility trial. Then last weekend was her second
trial and she got two qualifying scores and two more first
places! Qualifying scores means she did everything with no
major mistakes. It takes three qualifying scores to earn a
title. She has one Q in Standard (with contacts) and two in
Jumpers. She is doing so well, she makes some novice mistakes
but she really is very steady. Nothing seems to bother her, she
stays focused on her job. I am very proud of her. I could not
have asked for a better fit in a dog if I tried. I am not
entering her in agility much yet, I don't want her to have an
issue and not be able to fix it. I am entering her in about one
or two trials a month right now, we have one more in two weeks
and then two in March. She should be more ready by the summer
when there are many trials.
We continue to
compete in flyball, she has run in 4 or 5 tournaments and has
been very solid. She is running again this weekend. We hope to
come to an Ontario tournament this summer.
Hope all is well with
you, stay warm.
Maureen & Tagurit
We had another great show last weekend at the big Cobo Hall dog
show in Detroit! Tag qualified both times again and two more
1st places. That is a tough venue, huge crowds and lots of
noise, I was surprised she did so well. So she earned her first
title (NAJ - Novice Agility Jumpers) and moves on to Open.
I'll keep you

I am sure you
can tell how happy I am with Tag. She has fit in perfectly with my other dogs
and has been great fun to train. I lost my big dog in July to cancer (he was
only 9 :c/). He played with her all the time and protected her from my other
dogs when he thought they were playing too rough. Tag has been a great
distraction and she willing accepts all my extra attention. She is soooo
outgoing and friendly. Everyone in her classes, dogs and people, know her and
have to greet her. When we walk in the training building, experienced dogs
actually have stopped working to come say "hi" to her. She seems to have a
charisma about her that makes everyone smile and want to see her. She plays
with dogs of all sizes, one of her favorites is a Bernese Mountain Dog! She
also loves Belgians, since my big dog was a Belgian Malinois. She will play
with anyone, but she really prefers the attention of people. Our instructor has
threatened to come steal her away! She is a special girl.
You asked me to
keep you posted about your little girl; she is pure joy! After playing for
an hour she is now sleeping in my lap as I send this to you.
She is eating better, sleeping more and loving every minute of her life. She
loves to play with us. She will actually retrieve a small ball and drop it
in front of me. Russell would never do that, he had to be the winner.
This is my little girl; I have four sons and
most of our pets were male. I love to brush her and will buy her a feminine
leash. I would never put ribbons in her hair but anything within reason that
still allows her to have the freedom of a dog is cool.
I understand that Jack Russells are the latest
fashion item in New York; women carry the poor country dogs in their purse.
Wind Up is going to be tripping through the Bruce Trail with a pretty light
Thomas adores her. When he doesn't have large dogs
he sleeps with her; otherwise she sleeps with us. As you can see one dog is
not enough for our family; therefore the boarders supplement her.
We still have not introduced her to other boarding
dogs. Today she met Diesel an English Bulldog; they wagged their tails
across a glass sliding door and when I opened it two inches they seemed very
Now for the bad news; I liked her name but Don
insisted on calling her Sabrina (the name of my first dog when I was
fourteen) an Airdale Terrier. You may still call her Wind Up.
I didn't get your pics in your email.
I will send you ours.
Thanks for giving us so much joy! Since she is never to
be bred I feel very fortunate and a little selfish because she is one of a
kind that will never be reproduced. I guess it was supposed to be like that
or it wouldn't have happened. We feel so privileged.
Also thank Elise for being so patient with us; she
is quite a compliment to your work.
Agnes and family.

Update regarding Wind Up/Sabrina sent
Jan. 6, 2009
In every aspect of her life
she is adjusting beautifully. She is so delighted with our guest dogs at our
Gordon Pet Services Inn (Orangeville, Ontario); she is quite a flirt
& a social butterfly. By the way her & Diesel Swissy (the greater Swiss
Mountain dog) are the greatest of friends; he has to bend down for his
kisses & seems delighted to do so.
She is eating well, sleeping well, house trained, well almost, about one
accident in the past week and becoming quite independent. Sometimes if Don
and I are watching a movie she prefers lying by herself in another room; I
guess we have to respect her need for privacy.
She has already brought us so much joy that words cannot describe it.
for that Gaye.

Good afternoon Gaye:
How are things. Well
Viper and I had a lazy day today after he helped me rake
some leaves in the back. Actually, after I raked the
leaves and Viper chased the rake. He's a great little
guy to take afternoon naps with. He is such a cuddly
little guy. By the way he loves shoes but he is starting
to grow out of the shoe bit and he is moving onto bigger
and better things.
He is a great
learner. I am amazed at how quick he learns. He is
probably 95% house trained now. Whenever he wants to go
to the bathroom he goes to our sliding door and waits
until we let him out. My wife and I love him soooooo
much. My mom just adores him
I won't keep you
long. I thought I would send you a quick pic of Viper
with one of his favourite toys.
Enjoy Gaye and
keep in touch.

I wanted to send you some
recent pictures of our beautiful little Zoe and to let you know
how pleased we are with her. She is a wonderful dog and has
brought our family so much joy. She is a good little dog, very
lovable, very calm and quiet and good with other dogs. The only
trouble we have had with her is with a vaccine. She is very
allergic to the Leptospirosis vaccine and we had a scare
recently with that vaccine. She reacted to it and she will not
be able to have that vaccine again. That worries me a little but
we will just have to make sure she stays away from puddles, etc.
because there is a lot of wildlife in our area - ducks, geese,
We are beginning family dog obedience next week which I am
looking forward to. I had enrolled before but I was not happy
with the instructor's philosophy so I have changed schools. The
previous instructor was big on pushing off leash parks and
walking your dog off-leash and I am totally against this -
especially with a Jack Russell! Already Zoe is showing selective
hearing - if she is busy digging or see something more
interesting, she chooses to ignore us. Also she is starting to
show a little independence and trying to dominate - she will
growl and snap if we pick her up when she is comfy or if she
gets in the "mood". I get lots of different opinions about what
to do about this. I know we will get advice from the dog
obedience classes but you are experienced with Jack Russells, so
what do you do when they are starting to try to be the alpha
dog? She doesn't respond to "NO" but sometimes continues. She
doesn't do it very often, but I want to stop it now.
Again thanks so much for your wonderful breeding. It really is
evident in the quality of dog we have. Whenever people comment
on her, I always mention you and how important it was that we
got her from a good breeder. People are always quick to tell
stories they hear about the breed, and I always tell them that
you just can't get one anywhere - you have to make sure
you take the time to go to a reputable breeder. It really shows
in Zoe - she is such a good little dog.
If you could let me know what you do to discipline when they try
to dominate, I would appreciate it.
Kanata, Ontario, Canada
Conquest Terriers' comment - I do not
recommend giving Leptospirosis vaccine as it has the most
frequent & serious reaction of any vaccination. Please bear mind
that a dog with a healthy immune system should be able to ward
off most diseases.
We just wanted to let you know
that Snow White is now Maggie. She is doing great and the kids
are loving her. She is growing fast and she is spoiled.
We wanted to thank you for such a great dog and we are looking
forward to having a lot of fun with Maggie. She is an energetic
and free spirited dog and we love her very much.

Just wanted to tell you that Brody is doing great! He has fit
in so well in our family. Every day we go for walks with my
parents dog Jack, a Portuguese Water dog, they have become best
friends. Being from Newfoundland I was finding it hard to find
a Jack Russell breeder, so I hopped on the internet and
thankfully found you. I sent off an email and only a short time
later you replied. From then on you guided me through the whole
process and you were so quick to answer every question. I was
also a bit hesitant on getting a puppy from such a long
distance, Brantford Ontario to St. John's Newfoundland. But you
assured me that everything would be fine, and sure enough our
little guy arrived here safe and sound, we have been best
friends ever since. Even though we have never met I feel like
we have known each other for years. Once again thank you so
much for matching us with a great puppy.
Michael N. - St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada
just thought I'd drop you a line and let you know how "Tango" is
doing. He is a pup we bought from you almost a year ago (where
has the time gone)? He was born November 8th, and is out of
We're very pleased with how he's turned out, he's so full of
personality! He's definitely a suck, and he demands attention
from everyone who comes to the farm. I've attached a few pics of
him from this past summer, he's in his "work clothes" (filthy
dirty). He was out helping us build the new fence around the
paddocks for most of the summer, which was when it was found out
how much he loves ATV rides. Nobody can start the machine
without him hopping on, even if he is inside the house he will
throw a fit until he is let outside to go for a ride.
He is enjoying going to the horse shows with me, whenever I open
the truck door he jumps right in waiting for a ride.
When we purchased Tango, it was a few months after we lost our
first JRT, he definitely had big shoes to fill as there were big
holes in mine, as well as my family's hearts. Tango has
definitely helped to mend the broken hearts, and as you will see
in the pics, he's got my dad wrapped around his little paw.
Thanks again for raising such a great pup!

In June 2005 we first met Gaye having
ordered a Jack Russell puppy. We drove to Brantford, Ontario
and her farm where we picked up our doggie and of course met
Gaye. Her professionalism was superb in her advice, backup
paperwork and handling of her dogs. She made absolutely sure in
various ways, that we were suitable parents for her little
breed. Needless to say, our dog, has changed our lives and we
resort to emailing Gaye quite often for advice about every
aspect of dog life.
We live in Mexico where we encounter quite a few tropical
veterinary problems. So, in short, we would recommend at the
highest level going to Gaye for your Jack Russell.
The breed is fabulous and we will always have one. Our biggest
mistake was not to get TWO at the same time.
We love our doggie Kulu which means braveheart in Zulu. Thank
Judy & Peter B.
Sorry about not getting back to you sooner
but this is the first time I have been near a computer all
summer. Rocket is doing great! She is now really part of the
family. She had doggy school all summer at the beach. We would
get up and be at the beach by 6 a.m. twice a week for her
lessons. She is really quick and so eager to please. The other
mornings I would take all three of them down to the beach to
romp and play with a multitude of dogs ranging from JRT's to
Great Danes. They all got along. Rocket knew when to back off
and when to jump right in instinctively. She really has no
fear. Everyone loves her, we loved hearing, "Here comes
Rocket….." She actually seems to laugh out loud. Can you tell
we love her? I have quite a lot of pictures on my home computer
so when I get a chance I will send them to you.
I will tell you more later,
Thanks again for such a well adjusted puppy.

I just wanted to say a few words on the wonderful addition of
Pippin to our family. We had a ruff year last year loosing a
family pet of 14 years. Both my husband and I wanted a smaller
dog as we live on a farm and have two Yellow Labs and needed a
pup that would get along with a grumpy old dog. We decided on a
Jack Russell Terrier. We had many pet enthusiasts tell us if we
get a Jack we will regret it, as they are hyper, yappy and
destructive. Well we didn't listen to them and started pursuing
finding the perfect Jack. We referred to you from another Jack
Breeder. We came down for a visit and you had several puppies
in all different age categories. We had only wanted to visit
for an hour but it turned out to be longer than that and it was
a great time. We got to play with the puppies, go for a walk
with them all, see your kennels, it was a fantastic day. The
next morning there was an e-mail from Gaye, she had picked out a
pup for us if we were interested. Well I came down that very
same day and picked up Pippin. She is an amazing puppy. I have
had many dogs in my life, but she is very special. This has
been seen by a lot of people such as vets, trainers, friends and
neighbours. All that told us not to get a Jack has had a change
of heart regarding Jack Russell Terriers and I believe this is
due to Gaye's knowledge of breeding and her dedication at
producing good puppies. She is one year old today and we
couldn't be happier with Pip. I have taken her to obedience
school and she was best in class. No surprise there. Now we
are looking at putting her into agility as she just loves to
learn. You always have her full attention when in training.
Pip comes to work with me most days if I don't have a meeting.
Co-workers come in just to see Pip. All in all I would
recommend Gaye as your breeder for your next JRT pet and I would
definitely recommend a Jack for your next friend. Jacks are

I adopted from you in Feb '06. Tessa is doing great she coming
on vacation with us up to the cottage this summer which should
be eventful! We don't know what we'd do without her, she has
been an awesome companion, and we think she's the best looking
and smallest dog in the neighbourhood at least that's what
everybody tells us. There have been lots of laughs! She is by
far more entertaining than we expected and our hearts go a
flutter every time she greets us when we get home from work.

I just wanted to let you know how happy we are
that we chose your guidance on getting our new puppy.
I looked at breeders from Wisconsin, Illinois,
Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and you. I talked to many breeders for
several weeks and took my time looking for a breeder and pup
that I felt confident in bringing into our home with our current
Jack Russell. The main key I felt was to find a breeder that I
felt could give me a healthy pup #1, a pup that would be
compatible with our current dog #2, and a pup with the right
personality/temperament #3, and if it will works out to do
agility with, that would be a bonus but not paramount.
you know I live in Chicago and stopped by you to look at your
available litters. After talking to countless breeders I felt
most comfortable with you and only one other breeder in my long
long search. I was torn between deciding between two puppies
that you had and told you. Your suggestion was that either
would probably be alright for what I was looking for and
sometimes you need to just "Go with your gut". A week later, My
choice was to "Go with my gut" and decide on the one you felt
would be the best fit for me. I am very happy that I decided to
take your guidance and get the one you felt most appropriate for
what I wanted. He is more than I had expected, a perfect fit
and probably will be more as he gets older!!!
to any one looking to get a new pup is: Take your time! Look
for a breeder who you feel comfortable with.

I just wanted to thank you for Nugget. She's a wonderful little dog with the
biggest personality around. She loves to come to work with me and everybody
in the greenhouse loves her. She's very well behaved and nearly everybody
comments on what a wonderful dog she is. The other day, I had to move a
tractor at work and I expected her to run away with the sound of big diesel
engine, but instead she was trying to find a way to jump on the tractor. In
the end, she sat on my lap while I attached the tractor to the generator.
She's also really nice with our
puppy. They play all the time and
she's very good to him. Of course she needs to teach him lessons once in a
while, but also stands up for him if another dog tries to teach him a
Nugget is such a sweetie and we're so happy to have her as a part of our
family, or should I say "pack".
Peter R. Richmond, Ontario, Canada
Great to see you expanding your
website. You have worked so hard to maintain such high standards of
the Jack Russells and I, for one, can vouch for that! My
testimonial is geared around "Aging with My Meggie". We are the
seniors and have a 14 year relationship with you. I have never aged
with my doggie before and it brings about a different perspective.
We both move a little slower, our vision and hearing isn't quite up
to par, teeth are fewer but one thing we both have is our love in
our hearts for each other and a sympathetic ear when one of us is
having a bad day. Meggie is a Cory-Winston pup and is rough coated
with a wonderful hunting background. No words could describe the
companionship she has given me over the years--my little shadow.
She makes me laugh with her antics and only sees the vet for her
yearly shots. No animal that I have owned has been this healthy!!!
We have added another member to
the family-Tobie, also a rough coated Jack Russell who is now 4
years old. It was a difficult adjustment but they finally
acknowledge each other's presence. It has certainly added years
to Meggie's life as she must (and is) the pack leader and keeps
him in place.
So, thanks Gaye for bringing my
sweet Meggie into my life and also for your friendship.
Anne M. Brantford, Ontario,
Hope you are
doing well. Just keeping in touch. Athena is doing very well and
is now spade ( she picked out the stitches herself :-) ) She is
a remarkable dog and you can trust her 100% with all the kids.
If you should ever come across another Athena please let me
know. I would be very interested. Age does not matter. We love
her so much.
All the best.

thought i would let you know what a great breed of terriers you
have and that i am so glad that you were recommended to me by
greta.... i'm not sure if you remember her (she
was born to be in shows but couldn't because her bottom teeth
were off by a few mm, and we took her 7 months mature) is still
a great addition to our family along with calvin, and if their
check-ups are any indication, i reckon that they will be around
for some time - they are 11 + 12 now but still act like
teenagers. luckily we have only lost one skunk, a chipmunk and
find attached a picture of greta from this past winter + summer.
