sharing our passion
My name is Jill Young. Chadbrook was originally founded in 1999 when I bought my first registered Parson Russell Terrier at the tender age of 18 years old. However my original line of terriers came from my mother under the kennel name Fairville whom I was raised with and we bred, showed and worked our dogs. My mum was treasurer and then president of the Scottish Jack Russell Terrier Club founded in 1976 which sadly closed due to lack of support in 1997. I spent most summer weekends attending club, hunt shows and country fairs. Over the years I learned all about the different working terriers including Lakelands, Borders and the rarer Fell and Patterdales. My mum sold 3 pups to a friend in Italy and we travelled there many times with them. I then learned about Jag and Daschunds that were hunting dogs. Every part of my journey through my early years was learning “WHY?” Why do we strive to breed these dogs this way. Later in the site I will talk about my own experiences.
I have held a strong relationship with dogs that are aloof and independent. I like dogs to be confident in themselves but respectful. When I looked at getting a pet for the family I fell in love with everything about Japanese Shiba Inus. Pace joined the Chadbrook clan in 2015 just after the birth of my son, Reuben.
I hold a strong passion for the breeds I am involved with and love to share this with others. This is where my dearest and longest friend Philip came into the frame. I rehomed my brothers old Fell Terrier to Philip and his family when I was 16. Smash was a real character, crabbit as sin, hated other bitches and fought to the death. Philip joined me at the Scone Palace Scottish Championship Show in July 1998 where his new pet went on to win the full show! He was hooked on my terriers from that moment on. We really share our passion for Terriers and Shibas and hope a little sprinkle of this comes with every puppy we breed and every conversation we have. They are inspirational little dogs!
