The Home of Champion Leonbergers in Ireland
The Top Winning Leonberger Kennels

 

If you are thinking of having a Leo you need to be aware that they are big dogs or more properly titled as a rare giant breed. So think big kennels, big paws and long bushy tails. They originate from Leonberg in Germany and were bred to have a lionlike appearance and are watchful, friendly, and confident with a playful personality that thrives on human interaction. Our Leos also love to get involved in carting/drafting, showing, Pet Therapy and waterwork. We have found that the best thing about Leo's is that they never stop entertaining you! However, be aware that they are such a great breed and one is never enough ... you have been warned!

We are registered breeders with the Irish Kennel Club, and we believe in quality over quantity and therefore we only breed the occasional litter, which is meticulously planned with an emphasis on producing top quality dogs consistent with type and temperament for the Leonberger. We actively seek outcrosses in order to maintain genetic diversity.

The picture is an early image of Boomer the first ever Irish Junior Champion (before he was one), the youngest ever Irish Champion at 15 months and the first and only Irish International Champion Leonberger, so if you would like to know more about us, our Leos, or our kennel please enjoy browsing our site or visit the club website here.

The swelling or puffiness of the mucous membrane becomes more marked as repeated attacks of subacute and acute inflammation occur, from year to year, over a period of twenty or more years. viagra online without prescription During all this time impairment of the function and structure of the anal and rectal canals is incessantly going on. viagra samples The nervous and muscular spasmodic con- traction of the diseased anus and rectum, which in time become more or less permanently constricted, steadily increases the stagnation and engorgement of blood in the dilated arteries, veins, arterioles, venous rootlets and capillaries. All of the circulatory vessels, especially the smaller ones, become enlarged, varicose; and an aggregation of varicosed vessels forms a tumor called a pile or hemorrhoid. cheapest generic viagra prices Inflammation interferes with nutrition of the anal and rectal tissues, rendering them friable or weak and easily broken; hence the bleeding and painful fissure or the anal ulcer, which so often are the outcome of proctitis and an accompaniment of piles. viagra pills As already stated, piles are one of the symptoms of proctitis, and all cases of piles involve more or less irritability and contraction of the anal canal and the terminal portion of the rectum through which the fecal matter is forced. cheap viagra All the muscular ability of the rectum, assisted by straining effort of the abdominal muscles, is concentrated upon the feces to force it through the constricted portion of the lower bowel.
