Sadly these three oldies are no longer with us. We will always miss them.

The "BUCKSTEPS" Kennel" was founded in 1970. We have been awarded the "KENNEL CLUB ASSURED BREEDER SCHEME ACCOLADE OF EXCELLENCE". We are proud to offer many years of expertise and experience in the breeding and showing of pedigree dogs.
We have bred many Champion Boxers including our famous "Champion Bucksteps Charlie Brown" who won "Best Of Breed" at Crufts IN 1997. And his sister "Champion Bucksteps Bittersweet" who won the title of" Top Bitch" and "Boxer Of The Year 1997", and went Res. "Best Of Sex in Breed" at Crufts in 1996 & 1997

In 2006 we acquired our first BOSTON TERRIER, and although we show little these days, we qualified our first home bred Boston for Crufts at her first show.

We are a very small kennel and the dogs live indoors as pets.
All our dogs have complete health checks before we breed from them.
And all our Boston Terriers have been DNA tested clear or are Hereditarily Clear of "Juvenile Hereditary Cataract". They are also checked to make sure they are clear of "Late Onset Cataract" before we breed from them.
We now only have one Boxer, Ella is our much loved pet. Sadly we no longer breed Boxers.

Both Peter and I judge at Championship level both in the UK and overseas.
