Our Patterdale Terriers
are bred to maintain the highest standards for working and hunting.
Bred from Pure English and Irish breeding stock, absolutely NO curs!
The original MQH Patterdales were bred and directly imported from Brian
Nuttall, who wrote the breed standard for Patterdale Terriers, used all
over the world.
At MQH Kennel, all of our dogs are at least six generations (most are
more) of true black fell terriers, absolutely NO out crosses to Jack Russels, Lakelands, Borders,
believe that Patterdale Terriers should not be corrupted by fads or the
desire to own a pocket pitbull.
We breed only proven workers who possess gameness, hardness, intensity,
and stability. All of our stock is registered with the Patterdale
Terrier Club of America to maintain accurate pedigrees. MQH Patterdale
Terriers pedigrees have the blood of five PTCA"Hall of Fame" terriers
within a few generations.
Beginning in 2007 we began showing our dogs in conformation and have had phenomenal success. Our Patterdales have received Top Ten status Nationally every year, amassing more than a dozen Champions and a UKC Premier Best of Breed Winner.
We raise a limited number of pups each
year, most for our own use on the ranch, however, we do occasionally
have pups available for purchase...
MQH kennel is known around the world as one of the top breeders of hunting Patterdale Terriers.
We have shipped our dogs to nearly every continent.
Patterdale Terrier Puppies bred by MQH
MQH Patterdale Terriers we spend a tremendous amount of time deciding
on each mating because we keep most we raise! Hunting and working
ability, type, attitude, and soundness are paramount!
The greatest compliment a breeder can receive is the repeat buyer and we have many!
Every puppy we raise will have the MQH Kennel name on it, and we are very proud of it!
They are all raised in our home, because it is extremely important that every pup is lovingly cared for and well socialized
California’s pet legislation pressure has demanded that all dogs used for breeding prove their worthiness by being shown at conformation events or achieving another valid title by a recognized organization. We have selected to show our dogs in United Kennel Club events. Many local UKC clubs will allow Patterdale Terriers to show. If any local UKC breed club has not included Patterdales just ask and most will add the breed for their next event. UKC shows are very fun and welcoming! Some offer far more than just conformation classes, hosting "Total Dog," Agility, GTG, and obedience.
As we have always adhered to a policy of only breeding dogs which meet a rigorous Patterdale standard as great breeding stock, and driven by the animal rights agenda to eliminate hunting dogs, MQH has stepped up to the challenge. We already owned four Hall of Fame Terriers.
Since the Fall of 2007 we have UKC, PTCA champion titled 12 of our terriers and been in the top ten on UKC for 2007, 2008, 2009, and currently in 2010.
We now have three generations of PTCA and UKC Titled Patterdale Terrier Conformation Champions and a UKC "Total Dog."
As a top breeder of Patterdale Terriers, we devote our effort to the perfect mating. While we have some exceptional stud dogs in our yard, we sometimes use stud dogs from other breeders to make the perfect match. Every dog is given special consideration and attention. Our dogs are never confined to small areas. Long before the mating the mothers are conditioned with consideration given to exercise and diet prior to breeding and whelping. Our Patterdale Terrier puppies are long anticipated, so attention to detail is of utmost concern.
On arrival the pups are weighed and identified. At three days their tails are docked and dewclaws removed. We begin a de-worming program at two weeks, repeated at two week intervals and a fecal sample is done before they go to their new homes. In the past, we vaccinated at 6 and 8 weeks. The current thinking is that with well vaccinated bitches this is unnecessary. As per current research we will vaccinate just three days before eight weeks. Puppies need to continue to be vaccinated at 3 week intervals until 16 to 18 weeks as directed by the veterinarian. We do not encourage pediatric altering.
MQH Patterdale Terrier Puppies are imprinted early with a great deal of
human contact and socialization. When you receive a pup from us it will
be friendly, confident, and outgoing.
Each pup goes home with a three generation pedigree, application for registration for PTCA, a PTCA membership application and instructions on how to dual register with UKC.
Every puppy that leaves our kennel is fully guaranteed.
If desired, we can also provide house training for $10 a day prior to delivery.

MQH Jellybean is owned by Kerry Young, Havasu, AZ
Like Jellybean, proper training is a must! Jelly was taught to ring a bell to be let out by 10 weeks old. But expecting that your pup will learn the rules by watching TV or the other dog is just silly. All dog owners must teach their pup how to behave. Patterdale Terriers are smart, loyal, and eager to learn. If you want information about training Patterdale Terrier puppies, don't hesitate to call.
