In Ireland, I believe quality and construction have improved as well as coat
quality which is also much better. Ring training and presentation are very
much improved with the Breed in contention for top Group honours.
Maintaining the health and stamina of the Breed, while at the same time
remembering the origins, purpose and its working ability.
Making them more appreciated in their native country and to extend this
influence worldwide. I appreciate that there are now many breeders
throughout the world who are trying to maintain the original Irish Soft
Coated Wheaten Terrier in the way that was very dear to Maureen and know
that they struggle for recognition. Continuous education of all our native breeds is imperative.
