Welcome to



CHRISTATE is home to some of the top Tibetan Terriers in Ireland. Established by Christabel & Dermot Alford in Co Carlow in the south east of Ireland, the Christate show team are proven winners at every level in the show ring.

Tibetan Terriers are a fun loving breed and their natural abilities make them ideal family members.
We fell in love with this wonderful breed over ten years ago and since then they have taken over our hearts and our lives.
Our Tibetan Terriers enjoy a full range of activities including the Show ring, Obedience training and Agility.
The health of our dogs and of the breed in general is a serious issue. Here at Christate all our TTs are hip scored and annually eye tested.




The CHRISTATE foundation stock was imported from the top winning UK kennels in the breed, Araki Tibetan Terriers. A special word of thanks to Ken Sinclair and Neil Smith of Araki Tibetan Terriers for all their advice, support and encouragement through the years
Although Tibetan Terriers are our first love, as you can see other breeds have found their way into our lives.
