Established in 1975, our goal is to produce Curlies that can do well in any dog sport; no other breeder in the US can come close to our record for producing winners in multiple venues. We also expect superb temperaments, high trainability and excellent health - we don't always get it all in one package but we keep trying! Located in sunny Southern California, we are a small operation with generally no more than four adults living here and no co-owned dogs. Our breeding "career" is winding down, so we generally only have a litter every 3 or 4 years.

Currently, Charwin-bred Curlies hold 293 titles from 19 litters, a total of 111 individual dogs:

* 47 Chs, including 8 Group placers, a GCh, and 2 National Specialty BOB winners.
* 101 obedience titles, including five all breed High In Trial winners and the breed's fourth, fifth & seventh Obedience Trial Champions.
* 32 agility titles.
* 89 field titles - the first WCX, WCQ, SR, JH, WR, SH, MHR or GMHR Curly; & 4 CCRCA Field Trophy winners.
* 7 ROMs, 3 ROMXs and 6 HOF.
* 8 CGC/TT/TDI.

This despite the fact that most of our pups go to working/pet homes where they never earn a title other than loving companion and/or "huntin' dawg".

Charwin-bred Curlies have won the following from the national club -

* Sire of Top Curly in 1988, 2001 & 2002
* Dam of Top Curly in 1990, 1991, 1992 & 1994
* Breeder of the Year - 1990
* Top Obedience dog - 1986, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2011 & 2015, plus Charwin owned/trained/handled dogs won it 7 other times.
* Best of Winners trophy - 1991
* Top Field dog - 1991, 1996, 2000, 2001 (co-winner), 2002 & 2005. We are the only breeders to win this trophy with four different dogs!
* Top Agility dog - 2009

All of this accomplished with a VERY limited breeding program - only 19 litters in 35 years.
