Kennel Buckwheat

Welcome to Kennel Buckwheat! - Wheatens for Show, Sport and Leisure

My name is Boel Rosenlund, owner of Kennel Buckwheat. I live just outside Stockholm, Sweden,
together with my husband Knutte and tree Wheaten terriers.
We have two grown-up children, Edit and Elof, also living in the Stockholm area with
their respective families.

Full presentation of our dogs, past and present, to be found under the tab "Our Dogs" in the menue.

My dog-life started already in the sixties, the breeds in those days were wire- and
longhaired dachshunds.

Studies, career with lots of travelling and not the least raising a family made it impossible for me
to have dogs for many years. So when we finally decided our breed, the planning had taken several years,
and I may say that the choice of Irish Softcoated Wheaten Terrier has never been regretted!

The Kennel and the dogs are a way of living, Knutte is my invaluable "kennel boy", what would a breeder
do without one?

Edit had a successful career as a Junior Handler as a teenager, reached the Swedish Finals in 2003.
She has judged Junior handling and held many handling classes. Edit has been a board member of the
Swedish ISCWT club. She is co-owner of my kennel.

In my professional life, I used to work as Senior Manager, negotiating drama, documentaries and cultural
co-production programmes at SVT, Swedish Public Broadcaster. Knutte also used to be in the television business,
working as an independent producer.

The dogs are of course my major interest besides my lovely grand-children!
I also enjoy reading, watching tekevision series, cooking, gardening and decorating.
Keeping the web-site updated has also become a great interest,
many thanks to our son Elof who taught me how to do it and also created his web-site.

Start breeding the Wheaten Terrier was a very thorough decision, finding the kennel name was mere luck!
We were looking for a short and catchy kennel name, preferably with some association to the breed's name
but could not find anything new or original.

However, one day, Edit read out loud the label on one sack of dog food, "Buckwheat",
that would be the name of our Kennel!
Luckily enough, FCI agreed, and our kennel name was registered in the spring of 2003..
Uptil 2020 we have raised 16 litters.

My Dog life includes several classes in breeding, genetics, anatomy, raising puppies etc.
I am trained B-figurant for Mental Tests and also Ring Steward for Dog shows.
My dog education also includes being instructor in general obedience, rally obedience and nosework.
I was Board member of the Stockholm Division of the Swedish Club for Irish Softcoated
Wheaten Terrier for several years and am breed counsellor since 2009.

Our dogs have attended general and advanced classes in obedience, game-tracking, agility
rescue, rally obedience, nose work and scent discrimination.

We have competed in many of these sports and five of our dogs living at home have become
game-tracking champions.

Both Edit and I trim the Irish Softcoated Wheaten Terrier and welcome new customers depending on time.
