Alison has had Glens in the family since 1998. She has exhibited all her Glens, and was awarded Best of Breed at Crufts in 2003. She has bred just one litter of six puppies, in 2011, under the 'Bregorrey' affix. Alison and her husband, David, have visited the USA, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Finland and Sweden to meet fellow Glen enthusiasts and to attend shows and Glen events.
Alison has been active in the Glen community, supporting breed club events, writing "Breed Notes" in the weekly newspaper "Our Dogs" and also editing one of the breed club newsletters. She has judged Glens in England and Finland. Alison was a speaker at the International Glen Health Seminar (2014) in Helsinki, Finland.
Alison's passion is Glen health. She set up the Glen DNA archive in 2013 and the following year, she undertook a worldwide Glen health survey, after being elected health coordinator for one of the UK breed clubs. She compiled the 'Letter to new owners', which was sent out annually by the Kennel Club to new puppy owners, during her tenure as health coordinator.
