Welcome to Corkey Kennels. We are
located in Virginia, in the Blue Ridge Mts. We have been hobby breeders of only Basset Hounds. We have devoted much time and effort over the years to this breed. In doing so
we have learned so much but in that we always realize how much more there is to learn.
and kennel are nestled on ten acers of land in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mtns. We welcome visitors, especially if you are considering
adding one of our pups to your family. You are welcome to come and visit our dogs as many other people have done over the
God has given us the privilege of being able to be stewards over these wonderful animals and with that comes much
responsibility, which we take very seriously.
"for every animal of the forest is mine,and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every
bird in the mountains, and the creatures of the field are mine" Psalm 50:10
WE ARE EXCITED TO BE IN THE SHOW RING WITH OUR BASSETS AND TO
HAVE THEM EVALUATED BY JUDGES ALL OVER THE EAST COAST AREA. AFTER 26 YEARS OF BREEDING, OUR BREEDING PROGRAM HAS PROVEN TO
MEET THE STANDARDS OF THE BREED IN CONFORMATION, TEMPERAMENT AND HEALTH. WE DO THROMBOPATHIA AND GONIOSCOPY TESTING ON OUR
HOUNDS TO PROTECT THE BREED WE LOVE.
