Heathberry's kennel was founded in -97. We are a small kennel having 1-2 litters per year. We are actively taking part in all kind of BTactivities. Particularly agility has a special place in our hearts. We try to find our dogs active homes, where they don't end up as 'coutch potatoes'.


I bought my first Border Terrier Molles Crashmiina, "Miina", in -95. I wanted to have an active, compact sized dog suitable for agility and other outdoor activities. Border Terrier seemed like a right breed to me. Miina was bought as a pet and the idea of breeding didn't even cross my mind at that time. (So little did I knew!)

With Miina we did a lot of things: agility, working trials, blood-tracking, obedience and shows. Soon I was totally in love with this breed and I also got interested in breeding.

First litter was born in spring -97. Miina had 5 puppies sired by Rubicon Rubarb. From the first litter came the first Heathberry's champion H. Last Sparkle. A warm thank you goes to my friend Anna-Karin Bergh from kennel Rabalder in Sweden, who helped me a lot when I was starting breeding BTs. I still get advice from her when needed.

With my sister Elina we share the same passion for Border Terriers. Nowadays this kennel activity is just as much her hobby as it is mine. In 2002 prefix "Heathberry's" was also registered under her name.



At home at the moment I have Miina (Molles Crashmiina), Jedi (H. Jet-Lag) and Putti (H. Better By Far).

Miina has had two litters, one by Rubicon Rubarb and one by Rabalder Hundra Knutar. Miina is a double champion. She has gained the Finnish Working Champion title (FIN KVA) and Finnish & Swedish Agility Champion title (FIN & S AVA).
In 2001 Miina was in the team, which won gold in Agility Finnish Team Championships. Miina's retired from agility competitions in the Autumn 2004 at the age of nine.

Jedi has already proven to be extreamly promising in agility. He has risen fast to top class. In 2003 he placed sixth in both Finnish Championships and in the World Championships qualifying competition.

Putti is the only "show dog" at home. He has dome extremely well for his young age. At the age of two he already has gained 8 CC's and 4 CACIBs. In 2004 he was BOS in the two biggest show events in Finland, in BTC Speciality and in Helsinki Winner Show. Putti is also starting his agility career.

We have been extremely lucky to get to know Jayne Gillam and her Orenberg -kennel. In the fall -98 little bitch puppy Orenberg Night Pixie arrived from UK. "Pixie" has done well in shows and in summer 2000 she became a champion (FIN MVA). So far she has also got 4 CACIBs.

Pixie has produced four litters. Litters are by H. Trick or Treat, ,H. Matter Of Time, Borderhouse Quincy and H. Better By Far. Three of her offspring has already gained champion titles. Pixie lives at my sister Elina, who also handles her in agility.

We only keep few dogs at home because we want to make sure we have enough time for them. To continue breeding, we have sold some promising bitches under breeding terms (for example H. New Release, H. Access denied and H. Far And Away).
