Versatility with Style
I hope you learn more about this intelligent and oh so Irish breed from visiting these pages.

Welcome to the world of...

"No it's not a poodle."

ildanoch means versatile in gaelic. We chose this for our kennel name to reflect our commitment to the versatilty of IWS. See below for many examples of IWS having fun with their owners.

IWSCA National Specialty What a great time we had! Completely exhausting as always. Zac won his class in sweeps and won the Bred-by class at the National. Beckett was 2nd in his class in Veteran Sweeps and won the Veteran Class at the National. He also earned his WC again. Unfortunately he was a little (haha) over eager and didn't hold for the triple in the WCX. Joey won Veteran Sweeps and the Gun Dog Class and Select Dog at the National. He also earned his WC but had a little problem with the WCX triple. Jeremy Kezer took a ton of pictures. Once I narrow down my selection a bit I'll add some to my website. In the meantime, you can take a sneak pic at all the dogs
