Locksfield is our home as well as our kennel affix.
Looking after our Leos is a real team effort, with Andy, Jackie and Neil sharing in the various activities we undertake with them. Kezzie particularly enjoys the show ring, whilst Monty prefers his PAT dog visits with Jackie. Both really enjoy Water Rescue training and truly love water in any form.
As a family dogs have always played a large part in our lives. They have ranged from Golden Retrievers to Heinz rescues, all with different traits, both challenging and rewarding.
In 2010 we visited Crufts and saw for the first time a huge, gentle dog on one of the stands. We then visited the "Discover Dogs" Leonberger stand where we met two more - we were smitten!
Andy got Monty to join our rescue dogs - Mac (Collie-cross) and Pepper (Who knows). Just over a year later, following the sad passing of Mac, Jackie got Kezzie.
In 2012 we meet an amazing German Leonberger called Baxter. This year we have been fortunate enough to have a puppy sired by Baxter. Dexter is Neil’s boy.
Locksfield Leonbergers is owned by Jackie Smith and is registered under the Kennel Club Assured Breeders Scheme. Jackie and her husband Neil are members of the Leonberger Club of Great Britain.
