You are now on the home page of the Craigycor & Tasarnia Show Kennels Web Site. 


Since 1952 our aim at Craigycor has been to breed quality corgis with good temperament and  sound construction.



Pembroke Corgis

Craigycor has been blessed with forging good friendships with top breeders in the UK and USA.  We have taken these super dogs and their phenomenal blood lines and blended them with our own line and this has given us great successes which include several All breed Championship Show BEST IN SHOW wins, Multiple Group wins in Ireland and the UK and the #1 Corgi (Dog and bitch) & Pastoral Dog at Championship Shows in Ireland in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008.


2008 was another memorable year for us at Craigycor as:

  • #1 Pembroke Corgi in Ireland for the 7th consecutive year and:

    • #1 & #2 males in the breed

    • #1 & #2 females in the breed

    • top puppy in the breed

  • Craigycor were #1 Pastoral Breeder in Ireland in 2008 in the Our Dogs Dog Food leader board as published on the Show Dogs Ireland web site and well as being 3rd over all All Breeds.

  • we have the Runner up #1 Corgi in the United Kingdom in 2008.

  • We have the #1 Group #1 in the Irish canine Press Redmills / Show Dogs Ireland Top Dog tables in 2008.

  • we have had 7 different Championship Show Group Winners 2008.

  • in August we won Best Dog, Best Bitch and Best Puppy at the Welsh Corgi Club of Ireland Breed Championship Show


Lhasa Apsos

Tasarnia Lhasa Apsos were established in 1994 and this line has been built on the solid foundation of the top winning Saxonsprings lines.


We have bred several champions and we have won Groups and Best in Shows at All Breed Championship Shows and we have won Best in Show at the UK National Speciality Breed Show.


As well as our successes in Ireland and the UK we are very proud of the fact that one of our previously owned dogs' Matthew aka Am./Ir. Ch. Shows Fantastic at Pantulf has won Best in Show at the American National Speciality in 2006 along with BOB at Westminster and the Eukaneba Challenge in 2006 and 2007.


Australian Shepherds

We added an Australian Shepherd to our show Team in 2004 and their loveable and energetic temperament have brought us great fun since their arrival for us as owners and also for the Corgis and Lhasa's as they now had canine freinds a lot bigger and faster to play with.


In 2006 we bred our first and so far only litter of Aussies and we are delighted that the puppy we retained from this litter qualified for Crufts at her first Championship Show and ended up #1 Aussie in  Ireland in 2007.



In summary, we have bred and owned many champions in the breeds we are showcasing on our website and we have included photos of our dogs from past, the present and young hopefuls for the future. 


If you would like to contact us to let us know what you think about our dogs or if you have any queries - please do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail or phone and our details can be found on the contacts page.
