Westchester Kennels is owned and operated by Jan and Ric Arsenault. We have been active in dogs through our Airedale Terriers since 1975. We started in obedience with our first Airedale, Jannie, and have been showing and breeding since 1977 under the Westchester prefix. We have bred many Canadian and American Champion Airedales during the past 30 years and have put a few obedience titles on Airedales as well. Jan has extensive experience in all dog breeds through training obedience classes for the local kennel club for 15 years.
She is currently Show Chairman for the Seaway Kennel Club and has run their all breed show for the past five years.
Our kennel is located on our country property, so there is always someone present.
Our indoor runs are air conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter.
We supply clean bedding.
Your dog is walked out to our large runs several times per day, weather permitting.
Boarding charges are $25.00 per day. Fees are charged for the day your dog arrives.
