ZARCREST primarily breeds Miniature Longhaired Dachshunds and American Cocker Spaniels, they are based just off the Shropshire borders of Wales within the UK and have won many accolades over the years with their show dogs, which have been bred for type, temperament, health and quality over the past five decades.
Our guardianship is simple, and that is to breed the very best possible within the guidelines of the UK Kennel Club breed standards.
This is our passion originating from a family hobby and certainly not a commercial enterprise, we strive that the health and welfare of our passion is the very best that it can be, with an emphasis on quality and not quantity at all times.
At present, we have 5 Champions living at home including, Championship Show Group Winners, Group Placed Winners, Puppy Group Winners, CC Winners, RCC Winners, double European Titleholders, American Cocker Speciality Junior Winner and Benelux 2018 Junior Winner.
We are also proud to have bred/co-own the current titleholders
