We are Norwich terrier breeders located in Northern California. Thank you for visiting our Verdant Norwich site.

Our goal is to breed sound and healthy Norwich terriers. We started in 2007 under the guidance of some wonderful Norwich breeders. We are so proud to have bred some wonderful pooches and enjoy seeing them in the show ring and others' being beloved companions.

GCHS CH Verdant's Levi the Lucky One


Levi's dad is Apollo who we bred. Apollo was the #1 AKC Norwich Terrier in 2013.  Levi was bred by us and while showing was owned by Barbara Miller from Long Island.
In October 2014, Andrew and I discovered that Paulo was selected for worldwide advertising of Eukanuba dog food along with his 1/2 brother Vinnie.

2024 Desert Empire Terrier Club of Southern California Specialty- Group 3 Bred-by Exhibitor 

Verdant's Tremendous Honor (Toby) won Group 3 in the Bred-By Exhibitor competition. We, sadly, didn't do as well as as 2022 and 2023,  but 3rd is a very repectful placement considering the strong competition at the Empire Polo grounds.

2023 Desert Empire Terrier Club of Southern California Specialty- Group 1 Bred-by Exhibitor

CH Verdant's O' What A Conundrum won his championship and went onto win Group 1 Bred-By Exhibitor competition. This was the second year in a row that we won this honor, which we think speaks volumes about our breeding stock. The show is the largest gathering of terriers on the West Coast.
