Revloch is owned by Paul and Jean Lawless and daughter Kelly.
We are a small but successful kennel based in County Kildare, Republic of Ireland, showing our dogs in Ireland, the UK and Europe.
Our main breed is Belgian Shepherds but we are also actively involved in Schipperkes and have also shown/bred Australian Silky Terriers
to great successes in the past.
We breed only a couple of Groenendael litters per year, and the other varieties once every few years, Schipperkes more rarely,
all puppies are reared in the house.
Paul is currently a Director of the Irish Kennel Club and also a member of the IKC Health & Welfare Committee.
He is an FCI International Judge across Groups 1, 2, 5, 7, 8 and 9
Jean is a member of the An Ard Comhairle of the Irish Kennel Club and an FCI International Judge across Groups 1, 2, 5.6 and 10
Kelly is an ex-Junior Handler having twice held the title of Irish Junior Handler of the Year and representing Ireland at the International event at Crufts.
She is Secretary of the Belgian Shepherd Dog Club of Ireland and judges all breeds in FCI Group 1
In late 1988 Paul met Jean, who experienced her first dog show a few weeks later when she handled 'Harvey Wallbanger' (photo 1), winning the Major Green Star and Best of Breed with him at the Irish Kennel Club St. Patrick's Show. From then on she was thoroughly hooked and so we decided to expand into variety.
We are thankful to those who have given us their knowledge, advice and friendship over the years. We have discovered that showing dogs is the easy part, breeding good dogs is more difficult, but both need a large amount of luck, effort and perseverance. Each of the dogs we have imported have played an important part in where we are today and we know we are fortunate to have had the opportunity of owning and enjoying them, whether they have been top winners or not, we will always be grateful to those people who entrusted them to us.
If we can maintain the same success and enjoyment of our dogs and also the friendships that we have made along the way, than the heartache, disappointments and hard work that showing and breeding dogs can sometimes bring, and which many people don’t realise or appreciate, will have been worth it......
Paul, Jean and Kelly Lawless
