Welcome to the Blevwil Kennels Website.
We are Roy and Lesley Ann Blevins.
Both Lesley and I have always had dogs in our lives. Since our marriage we have been fortunate enough to acquire enough land to not only build our own home but the kennels we had always dreamed about and our canine family has expanded. Lesley’s love of Pekingese has overflowed to Havanese and Katie and Zaras playful natures have given us hours of amusement. My passion for hounds has expanded from just Basset Hounds to now include Basset Fauve De Bretagne.
Our home is situated close to Peatlands Country Park and our land includes a large paddock and woodland area for the dogs. We both work for the family transport business allowing flexibility to look after our dogs.
All our spare time and money is spent on our dogs to ensure they get the best possible care and attention.
‘We are both Committee Members of the Northern Ireland Basset Hound Club where Roy is Treasurer and Joint Breed Health Representative. Roy is also a Committee Member of the Basset Fauve De Bretagne Club UK. We are serving members of the Basset Hound Club of Ireland, Basset Hound Club UK, North of Ireland Pekingese Club and Havanese Club of GB.
Roy is on the Judging B List for the Basset Fauve De Bretagne Club UK and has passed Seminars and Hands On Assessments in Basset Hounds, Basset Fauve De Bretagne & Pekingese. He has judged in both the UK and Ireland.
We are occasional breeders. When we decide to have a litter we discuss pedigrees with various specialists in the breed concerned with a mind to produce quality dogs of sound temperament and type.
