Kebulak History


Kamaghan Ipswich Idol

 I started showing dogs as a child, initially showing Cherie Walters’, my aunt’s, Airedale Terriers in junior handling competitions and then her Kerry Blue Terriers as a partner in the Kamaghan Kennels, a kennel with which I remain very closely associated. My first Kerry Blue was a bitch called Kamaghan Ipswich Idol, who I showed as a teenager.  She won a RCC and achieved her junior warrant. I never had a litter from from ‘Georgie’ but she was my best friend. When I left home Georgie stayed with my mother for the remainder of her life.

 My next Kerry Blue was a male dog Kamaghan Hot Property. 'Benson' was the son of Ch Kamaghan All Mighty; a top winning Kerry and grandsire of my homebred Ch Kamaghan Hot Stuff at Arkama. Benson won 1 CC (my first).

Ch Kamaghan Fancy Nancy


Ch Kamaghan Fancy Nancy who I co-owned with her breeder, Cherie Walters came next. She won 3 CCs and was my first champion. 'Nancy' also received one Group 3 placement at championship show level.  

  Ch Kamaghan Fancy Nancy was mated to Ch/Ir Ch Hallsblu Sign Seal and Deliver and from this letter I kept a bitch called Kamaghan Temptress. 'Alice' was Top Puppy in 1998 and won a RCC before being mated to Ch Lunabrook’s Finnegans Favour which produced Ch/It Ch Kamaghan Mr Bombastic, who now resides at the  Balboa Kennels in Italy and was Top Terrier in Italy in 2002 and his litter sister Kamaghan Twice as Nice at Arkama.

 Ch Kamaghan Fancy Nancy was mated to Ch/It Ch Kamaghan Mr Bombastic and this mating produced Ch Kamaghan Mr Ballistic; winner of 6 CCs and 9 RCCs. He was also Top Sire in 2002.

I then bought in Ch Arkama Bombshell at Kamaghan, ‘Jade’.  Jade won 9 CCs, 10 RCCs, Top Kerry Bitch 2002 and Championship Show Group 2, 3 & 4 placings. She was also Top Puppy in 2000, winning 12 Best Puppy awards at Championship Shows (a record number of wins) and was a Regional Finalist of the UK’s Pup of the Year competition.


Following a judging appointment in Northern Ireland I purchased a very eye catching dog ‘Flash Harry’. 'Flash'  was a son of Ch/Ir Ch/It Ch Balboa Belmondo and quickly won a RCC at his first Championship Show and had all the makings of a champion but tragically died less than a year after I bought him. He left behind a legacy however. From one mating to Arkama By Design (litter sister to Bombshell) he produced Ch Arkama Flashdance (‘Fay’). I campagined Fay durin her show career and she was Top Kerry 2004, won 9 CCs, 3 RCCs and Championship Show Group 3 and 4. She was also Runner Up in the Pet Plan Junior Stakes. 

I mated Kamaghan Twice as Nice at Arkama to Kamaghan Hot Property and the mating produced Ch Kamaghan Hot Stuff at Arkama ('Harvey').  Both Hot Stuff and Flashdance became champions on the same day.

During 2005 I handled Ch Stanstead La Deva (‘Dee’) to her title.  She became Top Bitch for 2005; winning 3 CCs and 1 x Group 4 placement at championship show level.

Ch Arkama Bombshell had only one litter which was sired by Ch/It Ch Balboa Benhur; who resided with me for some of his time in the UK. This litter produced my homebred Ch Arkama Penelope Pitstop (‘Pippa’) (Top Kerry 2007, 6 CCs, 2 RCCs, Group 2 & Group 3); Ch Arkama Pinball Wizard at Philwyre (‘Bobby’) (co-owned with Phil Carvey) and handled to his title by me; and It/Int Ch Arkama Proper Little Madam at Stanstead (‘Mia’) who was exported to the Balboa Kennels in Italy where she gained her Italian and International champion titles and was a championship show group winner. (See champions gallery for photos of all). Ch/It Ch Balboa Benhur was also mated to Ch Arkama Flashdance. This litter produced Int/Jsy Ch Ch Arkama Rockafella at Kebulak who was a championship show Group winner in Spain and been placed in Groups in France and Belgium.  He now resides in Jersey.   Ch Arkama Flashdance was later mated to Belgium Ch Arkama Helluvafella (a Benhur son) and produced Arkama Tickety Boo at Kebulak who was unshown but the dam of Ch/Int/Bel/Lux Ch Kebulak Willie Nelson (see champions), Ch/It Ch Arkama True Grit and Kebulak Sticky and Sweet (dam of a number of winners at Kebulak).

My involvement with Lakeland Terriers came in 2006 when I purchased my first Lakeland Terrier from Saredon Terrier Kennels; Ch Saredon Unreachable Star at Arkama. ‘ Star’ gained her title during 2008 and was owner handled. During 2008 I imported my second Lakeland Terrier; a Blackdale bitch from Harry O’Donoghue’s famous Terrier Kennels in Ireland. Blackdale Desert Bloom at Kebulak (‘Sahara’) has served to be an important brood bitch for Kebulak.  She produced from one litter Ir Ch Kebulak Guns N'Roses, Jnr Ch and Ir Ch Kebulak Guns A'Blazing (Blaze). Blaze is sire of Ch Kebulak Smoke and Mirrors.  My third Lakeland bitch Ir Ch Nujax Under the Influence at Kebulak won a RCC at her first championship show at only 7 months of age.  In 2010 she gained her Irish Champion title.  She also won 2 CCs in the UK; was the breed's European Winner in 2009 and had 4 CACIBs before she was sold abroad.

Following a trip to the World Show in Poland in 2006 I purchased an Irish Champion dog from Philip & Eddie O’Brien & Jarka Poulova – Ch/Ir Ch Edbrios Bohemian Ivanhoe at Arkama (‘Bogy’). He quickly won 4 CCs and 2 RCCs in the only 6 shows during 2007.

  Soon after I bought two Edbrios bitches sire by Int, Eng, Ir, Svk, Po, Cz Edbrios Blue Ivanhoe who was top dog all breeds in Ireland in 2007. Be Ch Edbrios Vanity Fair ('Verity') is a RCC and CACIB winner who gained her Beligum title and is dam to Sw Ch Kebulak Born to Rock.  Her litter sister Edbrios Light My Fire ('Bianca') was mated to Ch Arkama Pinball Wizard at Philwyre and their daughter CC, CAC, Green Star and CACIB winning Be Ch Kebulak Wheels On Fire (See champion dogs).   

The World Show proved to be very important as it was also at this show that I had the opportunity to admire some of the Kerrydom Court Kerry Blue Terriers onwed by Zuzana Szovenyiova from Slovakia. I purchased a puppy from Zuzana – Kerrydom Court Irresistible Guy (’Guy’). and although not shown he has proved to be a very important sire, having sired my beautiful Group winning Ch/Int Ch/Belg Ch/Lux Ch Kebulak Willie Nelson who holds the titles of Amsterdam Winner '10; Brussels Winner '10, Interra Winner '11, Luxembourg Ch '11 Crufts CC winner '11, National Terrier winner '11, Belgian & Brussels Winner '11,  'Willie' has produced four champions so far Ch/Int/US Ch/Braz Ch Kebulak Born to Tease who is being campaigned in the USA and Ch/Aus Ch Kebulak Agent Provocateur (3 CCs, 2 RCCs, 2 CACs, 1 CACIB, Belgian and Brussels Winner '11) who is being campaigned in Australia; Ch Kebulak Striptease 'Shakira'; and Ch/Ir /Int/Lux Ch Kebulak Kiss This (Romeo) who is being campained in Europe.

 I also imported a bitch from this Kennel - Kerrydom Court Keeley at Kebulak.  'Choo Choo'  is sired by Canadian and US champion Symphonie’s Blind Date out of a stunning multi titled Dinnyesvarosi bitch, ‘Bluish Beauty’.  From her first litter to Ch/Ir/Int/Multi Ch Dandy Black & Blue Rokoko she produced Ch Kebulak Rockin Robin and Greek Ch Kebulak Rocknrolla and from her second litter Ch/Ir Ch Kebulak Filthy Love and SA Ch Kebulak Filthy Angel.

My first Lakeland Terrier litter was born in 2009.  My Ch Saredon Unreachable Star was mated to Ch Saredon Flash Back and they produced Int, Be & Ir Ch Kebulak Swing On  A Star who won her first RCC and Best Puppy at Crufts in 2010.  'Amber' was also World Winner 2010 and Amsterdam Winner 2010.  She has won 1 CC, 6 RCCs and became an Int Ch in 2011 and Bel Ch is 2012.  Her younger brother Ir Ch Kebulak Bad Moon Rising 'Denzil' has proved to be an outstanding sire of many quality youngsters here at Kebulak and in show homes abroad including our Ch/Nz Ch Kebulak Man After Midnight who was Top Puppy in UK for 2011,won a RCC at his first show and won a total of 17 CCs, BIS National Terrier 2013, won the group at Boston 2013, World Winner 2013 and multiple group placements before being exported to New Zealand where he is already a multiple best in show winner and Terrier Speciality BIS winner. He was the UK's Top Lakeland 2013; BIS winning Ir Ch Kebulak Lady Marmalade ; and Ir Ch Kebulak Lady Madonna. Denzil's sister Kebulak Moondance won a CC before being exported to Italy. Dutch Ch Kebulak Killer Heels ('Diamond') is from Star's third litter and she is a CC winner and has multiple junior champion titles abroad. 

Ch/Jsy Ch Naughty But Nice at Kopykats who was sired by my homebred Ch Kamaghan Mr Ballistic joined the Kebulak show team in 2009 and quickly gained her crowning CC and BOB at National Terrier in 2009.  She is also a Jersey Champion and was Top Terrier in Jersey in 2008.  'Peggy' was mated to Ch Willie Nelson and this produced Multi Ch Kebulak Born To Tease ('Bruce')  and Ch Kebulak Striptease ('Shakira).  

Our first Welsh Terrier joined Kebulak in 2009; Ir Ch Saredon Lady Bug at Kebulak.  'Daisy' quickly won her Irish champion title and was Kebulak's foundation Welsh Terrier bitch.  She has produced Ch/Ir Ch Kebulak Trigger Happy (Bullet) who was BOB at Crufts and National Terrier 2014 and was the top welsh in the UK in 2014 and Kebulak Femme Fatale 'Nikita' who has 2 CCs.

Be Ch Granemore Maximillian at Kebulak is also a Junior Irish Champion and was sired by Reserve Best in Show Crufts winner Ch Torums Tunde Bayou.  'Max' was Top Puppy in 2009 and was a championship show Best Puppy in Show winner as well as winning Best Puppy in Breed at Crufts 2009 (see champion dogs). 

The latter part of 2009 proved to be an exciting time as the fabulous Ch/Ir/Multi/Int Ch Dandy Black & Blue Rokoko joined the Kebulak show team.  He was imported from Croatia and is co-owned with Philip O'Brien and jarka Poulova (Edbrios) and his breeder Angela Ban.  'Rokoko' quickly gained his UK and Irish champion titles.  This heavily titled dog had already enjoyed huge success in Europe before joining Kebulak but has since won BIS at Eurodogshow in Belgium in 2009, was BOB at Amsterdam Winners 2009, Crufts CC winner in 2010; and World Winner 2010.  He has also won two UK championship show groups, and is a BIS, BIS2 and group winner in Ireland.  He has also produced some outstanding youngsters for Kebulak including Ch Kebulak Rockin Robin and Ch/Am Ch/Ir Ch Kebulak Dirty Harry, a multiple group and BIS winner in Ireland.  He was campaigned in the USA  before recently arriving in Australia to win two consecutive all breed BIS wins at his first two shows there.

In 2010 Kebulak added a further Lakeland Terrier to our Kennels.  This time a male; Ir/Lux/Int Ch Ch Gosel Simply The Man at Kebulak.  He quickly gained his Irish champion title and has won 2 group placements in Ireland  He has won CACs, CACIBs and BOBs in Italy, Switzerland and Belgium and has 2 RCCs.  He is sire to CC winning Dutch Ch Kebulak Killer Heels who was BOB at Brussels Int Ch Show 2011.
