After losing two elderly Rottweilers we decided to look search for a smaller dog (we were living in a cottage at the time). It was during that search that we came across the German Pinscher breed.

After a long chat with top German Pinscher breeder Jay Horgan, co-owner of the Aritaur Kennel, it was arranged for us to meet some. We were hooked from the moment we meet this amazing breed. We finally took home our beautiful little girl, Nyla, who was bred by Jay and Martin Horgan in April 2013.

We have been showing Nyla now since she was 6 months old. At her very first show she won a 1st in Junior (beating four other bitches), followed by best puppy in breed – we were over the moon! We have had many more great placings since with our proudest being 2014 Crufts Junior winner.

I am also on the committee for The National German Pinscher Club as the membership secretary. The club was started in March 2014 and now has a large number of members which is quite a achievement considering German Pinschers are a rare breed.

We hope you enjoy our site and find it Informative.
