Breeders, and exhibitors of purebred Smooth Coat Fox Terriers
Gentleman of the Terriers
Smooth Fox Terriers are called the ‘gentleman of the terrier world’ and have a lively gregarious attitude with a devil-may-care attitude, developed initially for Britain’s traditional foxhunts
You will happily see us competing at competitive dog shows in the South Island of New Zealand and occasional North Island trips.
Care and Love
The Smooth Coat fox terrier is easy to keep looking neat. Daily brushing will keep it clean and prevent excessive shedding in the house. Daily exercise will naturally keep the smooth-looking fit – and always don’t forget a sprinkling of love..
Because of the dog’s joyfulness, our own is increased. It is no small gift. It is not the least reason why we should honor as well as love the dog of our own life, and the dog down the street, and all the dogs not yet born. What would the world be like without music or rivers or the green and tender grass? What would this world be like without dogs?
OUR FAMILY KENNEL
Who is Charlemagne
Many years of success was enjoyed with this little breed – Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. However, Brian Tolley then added Great Danes in 1972 and with Great Dane “Ch Noble Nero of Coledane”, starting something that we never could have foreseen as the most successful and enjoyable years following for us all with this beloved breed.
How do you pronouce, Charlemagne?
There are 3 syllables, and if you are kiwi, you pronounce it as:
“SHAA +”le” + “main”
For the Love of the breed
The Charlemagne kennel has a dedication to breed for breed type, soundness and temperament, and we will continue to produce puppies who not only have success in the show ring but, just as necessary in our eyes, make excellent family pets.

WHY CHOOSE US
I have a small kennel of four and do not breed often. All of my dogs spend a lot of time in my home and are part of my family. They are also thrilled to spend time in the kennel outside with indoor/outdoor runs while I am working - where I am sure they get up to foxie craziness!
I am president for the NZ Fox Terrier Club and a member of the Canterbury Combined Terrier Club and the Canterbury Juniors Kennel Society - which is a club promoting and guiding young members in making decisions regarding their own club and conformation shows.
