Wilane Manchesters has long been synonymous with the Emrick name. We, Bill and JoAnn Emrick, have been established in the sport of dogs for 28 years. Sad to announce, Bill passed away December, 2000. He will long be remembered for his deep devotion, many wonderful contributions and dedication to this wonderful breed.
We got our start in the "guard dog" breeds of Doberman Pinschers, Rottweilers and Bouvier des Flandres found us highly active in Conformation, Obedience, Tracking, Schutzhund, Search and Find and breeding. We have always been active in Kennel Clubs on a National and local level, along with promoting health and education of the dog. As we got older, we decided that a smaller breed would be better suited for us. It would have to be a large dog in a small package and our attraction was drawn to the Manchester Terrier in the mid-1980s.
We are truly dedicated to this wonderful breed. The goals of preservation of the breed, education and health issues are high on our list of priorities for the Manchester. Our dogs speak for themselves as far as our success in exhibiting and breeding. We have owned and bred Top Ten, Multi-group winning and placing, Obedience Titled, Hall of Fame, Register of Merit, Canine Good Citizenship Manchester's. Our dogs have been active in Herding Instinct and Earth dog testing as well. Here at Wilane, we strive for quality in and out of the ring. Health and temperaments of our Terriers are of utmost importance to us. All of our puppies go through Temperament Testing. We stand behind our reputation and the guarantees of our Manchester's.
Members in good standing with the American Kennel Club, American Manchester Terrier Club, Canadian Manchester Terrier Club, Baytown Kennel Club (all breed), English Toy Terrier (Black and Tan) Club in the UK and the Boston Terrier Club of America.
