Dunham Lake Australian Terrier Philosophy

Posted by Theresa Goiffon on Thursday, January 30, 2014, In : Dunham Lake Monthly News 
Just thinking this morning... I don't usually share personal feelings I might have on my open pages for the world to read, I save that for my secret/private DL family group. (If you are not yet a member, private message me and I will send you an invite theresaagoiffon@msn.com). But waking up this cold winter morning, to my 8 Aussies all around me, the snow coming down, the fire crackling, my daughter working on school work, I feel truly blessed and wanted to share our philosophy as a breeder ...

Puppy Party!

Posted by Theresa Goiffon on Monday, February 1, 2010, In : Dunham Lake Monthly News 

                          
February the month of love and what better way to show your dog that you love him or her but to throw a puppy party!  Well, not to mention it's the middle of winter, not much else to do at least here in the Midwest where we live :^)

Researching this topic, I found many puppy party planning ideas on-line. I was quite surprised at how elaborate some of these parties can be.  There are theme puppy parties, goodie doggy bags, party hats, doggie cakes and a multitude of p...

Integrity

Posted by Theresa Goiffon on Monday, January 11, 2010, In : Dunham Lake Monthly News 

Every year I look at the mission statement of Dunham Lake Aussies and make sure it still supports our goals which are to raise healthy, sound temperament Australian Terriers for show or companion homes.  2009 has been a wonderful and interesting year in many ways.  In the Aussie world in which we are involved, by our peers, we have been challenged, harrassed, loved, stalked, included, excluded, welcomed, ignored, highly encouraged, commended and supported. Quite the range of experiences! Than...

Breeder of Merit


Theresa Greetings from Northwestern Wisconsin! I am a wife, mother, breeder and author. I home school 1 of our daughters the others are now on there own. I also work with helping small businesses with their website needs. Previously, I had a 25 year banking career. Retired several years ago, as a Vice President of Commercial Banking and Business Development Director for a financial institution. I have owned and raised dogs and cats for over 40 years. In 2007, we started to show and raise Australian Terriers. We have 6 Australian Terriers and 2 Australian Shepherds. Breeder of Multiple Best in Show Aussies. We own and have bred some of the top Australian Terriers in the USA. We have bred and co-own the 16th and 17th Best in Show Australian Terrier in America he held the #1 in All-Breed in the USA in both 2013 and 2014. We have bred/own/handle the 2015 #1 Australian Terrier in the USA Jake who also won his first Best in Show with my 15 year old daughter Ellie handling him. Jake is only the 2nd "red" Australian Terrier to ever win a BIS. Breeder of 2 Australian Terriers to Win Best of Breed Westminster 2014 and 2015. We have Championed many Aussies and we have Champions in training, that being said, our dogs are first and foremost our companions. I take my role as a breeder very seriously. I support health testing and temperament testing as well as evaluating proper conformation prior to breeding. We believe in breeding for quality not quantity. We do not ship our puppies.
