Richard & Wendy and various breeds

Wendy Paquette & Richard Paquette have been involved in purebred dogs for over 35 years. We began our careers in dogs with primarily Shih Tzu, but along the way we have owned and bred Samoyeds, Afghans, Salukis, Whippets, Brussels Griffon, Maltese, Pekingese, Lakeland Terriers and Wire Fox Terriers.

Shih Tzu are our main breed and we have produced over 200 Canadian Champions, 60 American Champions, 12 different Best In Show winners and 8 National Specialty winning dogs.

Our Shih Tzu, “Chase”, Am Can Ch Wenrick’s Chassen Rainbows is in the pedigree of many top winning dogs from around the world. Our most recent star has become one of the World’s most famous and titled Shih Tzu. He is “Woody”, BIS/BISS World, INT CAN AM MED IT POL LUX Ch of the Americas World and International Champion Wenrick’s Hollywood Hit. “Selena”, Can Am Ch Wenrick’s Sweet Surrender finished her American Championship in style by going Best Of Winners at the American Shih Tzu Club National Specialty in Orlando Florida in 2001. "Selena" had an exciting year in 2002. She began by winning Best of Breed at the prestigious Westminister Kennel Club show at Madison Square Gardens in New York City. She followed this up with Best of Breed at the Twin Cities Specialty in Minnesota and an Award Of Merit at the American Shih Tzu Club National Specialty in St. Louis MI. In Canada "Selena" was the number one Shih In Canada for 2002 with 5 All Breed Best In Shows and Best of Breed at the Canadian Shih Tzu Club National Specialty. "Selena's" win at the Garden and her # 1 ranking in Canada marked the first time in decades a "Bitch" has won these awards.

We are now retired professional dog handlers, a profession that we enjoyed for 15 years. During this time we finished over 500 champions in 80 different breeds and won over 150 All Breed Best in Shows on 16 different breeds. We also owned and piloted a Lakeland Terrier, “Danny”, Am Can Bda Ch Jamelyn’s Second Edition to #1 All Breeds, a Pekingese, “Bingo”, Can Am Ch Rodari’s Aces High to # 2 All Breeds, and bred and owned the Best In Show winning Pekingese Ch. Wenrick’s Jokers Wild.

We have served on the executive of All Breed and Specialty breed clubs. We have been honored with life memberships in the Canadian Kennel Club, the Sudbury & District Kennel Club and the Canadian Shih Tzu Club. We have also been awarded an Honourary Membership in the Canadian Professional Handlers Association.

Wendy and Richard are both CKC Licensed judges and are founding members of the Canadian Dog Judges Association (CDJA). We are also members of the American Dog Judges Association. (ADJA). In addition to Canada and the USA, we have judged in Australia, New Zealand, Colombia, Chile, Taiwan, South Africa, Denmark, Italy, Finland, Sweden and Ireland.

In 2007 Wendy and Richard separated as husband and wife but still work together with the help of their daughter Jody on the Wenrick breeding program and the boarding and grooming business in Azilda, Ontario.
