GCH Glenstal’s Standing Ovation
We are Jessica & Jess Nash. We breed quality purebred Irish Terriers and occasionally have Irish Terrier puppies for show and pet/companion homes. Breeding Irish Terriers is our passion. Our redheads are show dogs but they are our family first and foremost. Our home is theirs. Their needs are taken care of first, then ours. This is not a job for us! Our lives revolve around these beautiful redheads from the moment they enter this world. Our address is Roy, Washington, but we live closer to Eatonville than Roy. We have been blessed to live on 16 pristine acres, fully (chain-link) fenced, 7 feet high. All of our Irish Terriers are raised in our home and they are exercised daily by walking, natural running and utilizing their natural, instinctive, hunting skills, throughout our property, with supervision at all times. Our love for terriers spans over several decades beginning with the Kerry Blue Terrier. We later owned Manchester Terriers and Scottish Terriers. We also had a Long Coat Chihuahua and she lived for 15 years with our redheads. It wasn’t until we purchased our first Irish Terrier that we discovered that this was the only breed for us! We are dedicated to preserving this wonderful breed by selectively breeding healthy and great tempered Irish Terriers according to the Breed Standard, and making every effort to place them with the most compatible and loving families. We are breeders/owners/exhibitors/groomers! All of our Irish Terriers are raised in our home with a tremendous amount of love and attention. They are extremely active but not hyper. Puppies are handled by all of us from the moment they are born until they leave our home. They have full run of our home except for one formal room because of my collection of English Tea pots/sets and Irish crystals. They sleep on our beds and our furniture. All of our redheads are interested in hunting anything that comes into our property. We go out and let them run (in our fenced property) and we walk with them every day come rain, snow, sleet or shine and they are game for any weather! If we go anywhere, we all go together in our motor home.

What is conformation showing? It is “exhibiting breeding stock.” When we show our Irish to their championship, it means that the judges believe that they are good representatives of the Breed, according to the official Breed Standard.
