Welcome to Celticmoon

The Celticmoon deerhounds, whippets and lurchers live in beautiful countryside on the Shropshire/Powys border.  We live in a Victorian forester’s cottage in the grounds of a stately home, and are lucky enough to back onto 1200 acres of mixed woodland, where our dogs are walked.  They share their lives with our miniature poodles, six cats, miniature Shetland ponies, hens and small flock of rescue guinea-pigs.  Our dogs live with us in our home – we do not have kennels – and all puppies are raised indoors.

As a child, Elaine’s parents kept border collies and in 1972, Elaine married her first husband, whose family bred and worked lurchers and longdogs.  When Elaine met Michael in 1994, they continued with lurchers until in 2003, they started showing a whippet at Championship level, which was quickly followed by more whippets and their first pair of pedigree deerhounds.

Elaine and Michael believe that puppies should only be bred if they have superb temperaments and conformation and undergo all relevant breed health tests. 

Michael and Elaine have fostered and rehomed dogs for breed rescues and Elaine is a breed advisor for Dogs Today magazine and has had several articles printed.

We are always very happy to give advice on living with our breeds.

We have featured some beautiful paintings and drawings of our hounds by renowned artist,  Claire Eastgate.
