We are Jo & Paul Dalton, We are very experienced owners and breeders of Boston Terriers and Whippets, having owned and been involved in dogs all of our lives. We have been breeding since 2000 and have owned, bred and loved Boston Terrier’s since 2009 when our first pet Boston boy Winston joined us and then from July 2017, our eldest Whippet bitch Whippy joined us, Jo was involved with rescue Whippets when she worked for the RSPCA during 1995/1996 and has loved the breed ever since. We have owned and bred Miniature Dachshunds and French Bulldogs in the past, but due to the increased health issues and risks assoiciated with both breeds we simply can not justify breeding a breed of dog we can not guarantee the health of.
Our kennel name “Mumuland” (pronounced ‘moo moo Land’) comes from Bill Drummond’s band ‘The KLF’ and was granted in early 2013 and has replaced our former kennel name of ‘Daltdach’ which was Dachshund related as we needed a Kennel name unassociated with a breed that we no longer owned or bred.
We strive to breed happy, healthy dogs who are of sound temperament and type who conform to the breed standard for both breeds. Therefore we health test all of our breeding dogs, the health tests for our Bostons include patella scoring, heart testing and regular BVA Eye examinations for Late Onset Hereditary Cataracts. In addition to this all of our Bostons are either 'DNA tested Clear' or born 'Hereditary Clear' of Juvenille Hereditary Cataracts, meaning ALL puppies bred by us are born 'Hereditary Clear' of JHC. Although there are no Kennel Club recommended health tests for Whippets, as they are on the whole one the healthiest breeds that exist - we do for our peace of mind, have our whippets eyes examined under the BVA Eye Scheme and heart test our breeding dogs.
We are members of the Northern Boston Terrier Club and are proud of the fact we are fully inspected five star council licnsed and UCAS Kennel Club Assured Breeders. We have been involved in the Assured breed scheme since it began. Jo is fully trained in dog Ultrasound Scanning and is a trained and registered Pet Microchip implanter and runs Mumuland Dog Health & Breeding Services.
