Our Glens

Welcome to the world of Our Glens!

We live in the West Of Ireland with our gorgeous Glens. 

The Irish Glen Of Imaal Terrier is the rarest breed of Irish terrier and in our opinion the best !!!!!




We are interested in the development and recovery of the true Irish Glen, the Working Glen. 

Working strain Glens are smarter, healthier, more engaging, intelligent and worthy of the title of True Irish Glen. 

Our Jacks

Welcome to the World of our Jacks!

We have a little kennel of shorthaired, straightlegged jacks ranging from 8" to 11" in height. 

Our jacks are bred down from working lines of English and West Of Ireland Jacks.

At the moment we are now rearing our first 3rd generation Interim pups, born May 2007.




Our jacks are house pets and farmyard companions, some are incredible ratters and others are complete couch potatoes.

Our jacks have exceptional intelligence, trainability and affectionate sociable natures.

Each one has an individual personality and quirkiness of their very own and yet a distinct 'family' character as they are closely linebred to maintain important type, character and soundness. 


Now here we go..  PRA RESULTS!
