About The McElroy’s
This is my husband Daryl we have been married since 1995, wow! It doesn’t seem that long when you are with that special person! My husband is the most wonderful, loving person, he helps me in every way on my journey with our dogs and to better our breed. We have two children that have come to love the most amazing breed ever the Boxer! Our son has started showing our dogs and has become a jr. handler winning several puppy matches. Our children just love to swim and play fetch with all of dogs and of course sit and play with the puppies, he calls all this work, boy does he have a lot to learn about life! But he knows that taking care of a litter of puppies, and making sure everyone is happy is a lot of work! You will see our children in many of the pictures here on the site, they help a lot with socialization of the pups as well as the aptitude testing phases.
After working, training, and titling dogs (since I was 8) and enjoying every minute of my life with dogs/puppies, mostly from the working group I dreamed of my future journey of becoming one of the top breeders in the country . My first dog was a German Great Dane, (She lived to be 13 years of age) and i did ob. titling’s, then did water rescue work with my pair of Newfoundland’s, and then was owned by an Old English Mastiff. That is when i found the love of my life “the boxer” our Mac changed my life forever, and I owe all the love for the breed, and dedication of working, showing, and start of breeding to him. After much time and many years of experience of working with dogs & puppies of all age and stages as well as social and behavioral issues i embarked to take the AKC testing needed to acquire the STAR and CGC titling. After passing all the testing and background checks required I have become an AKC Evaluator. I am also a member of Northern Ky & Greater Cincinnati Boxer Club, US-BOX Boxer Association and Queen City Dog Training Club. I will be taking more testing in the short future to obtain more titling for obedience as well as conformation apprenticeship. I hope you enjoy the site!
