My father grew up with boxers in the fifties and sixties
and decided to introduce our family to this outstanding
breed while I was in high school. I haven't been without
a boxer since.
Trail's End Boxers & Studios
Trail's End Boxers began with Max and Maggie, my first two
boxers. They were wonderful pets and incredible agility
competitors earning many titles. They introduced me to the
obedience and agility rings and to the incredible athletic ability
and intelligence of this breed. See Our Dogs.
About Trail's End Boxers
Our third boxer my husband, Mark, and I were fortunate
enough to purchase from the Glennroe/Telstar lines. Ellie was
the foundation of Trail's End Boxers. She finished her breed
championship very quickly under the expert guidance of Cheryl
Cates and has garnered several agility titles. Bred to Am/Can
CH Glennroe Rob Roy of Telstar, SOM, Scotty, in 2000 this
breeding produced six promising bitches. One is a champion
(our Abby) and three others were pointed. Abby is our first
The same progression followed Abby and she had her first
litter in 2003 bred to Ch Jem's Pearl Jam, SOM. I kept a
beautiful brindle bitch, Java, who is a champion with multiple
agility titles and the future of Trail's End Boxers.
Ellie also produced a second litter in 2003 through frozen
semen and surgical AI bred to Ch Holly Lane's Spin a Dream.
From her second litter, I co-own with a good friend of mine,
Sharon Arntz, Ch Trail's End Fashionably Late OA, OAJ,
CGC "Rogan" who finished very quickly with 3 majors and has
several agility titles.

November of 2007, I fell in love
with a flashy brindle boy bred by
Beth Pariseau of Bix-L Boxers. I
just had to have him! Jeter - Bix-L
Trail's End Franchise Player -
joined the Trail's End crew and
has since gone on to win the 9-12
month brindle dog class at the
2008 American Boxer Club
National Specialty owner-handled!
Abby's third and final litter was born August 7th,
2006. She was bred to Ch Dynamic-Shera's Court
Jazzter "Andy". They were affectionately dubbed
"The Brew Crew" as they were all named after
coffee & Oregon Microbrews.

From that litter, staying here is Latte- Ch Trail's End Caffe
Macchiato. Latte' just finished her champion title and will hit
the agility ring, too. Latte' also had a lovely litter of 8 October

We chose Trail's End as a kennel name based on the sculpture "End of the Trail." This was my
grandfather's favorite art piece. When he passed away and my parents took over my grandparents'
horse and cattle ranch, they decided to name it "End of the Trail Ranch" in his honor. Condensed
down to "Trail's End" for ease of naming dogs, I also like the symbolism it represents: reaching a
destination perhaps after a long journey. At the trail's end, you have reached your destination.
Trail's End Boxers is dedicated to the betterment of the boxer breed. We believe in producing dogs
that are true to the boxer standard. These dogs are sound in the mind, as well as, the body. Our
dogs should be first rate companions as well as show animals. They should snuggle up on the couch
with their owners, run and play with the kids, patrol the premises, and bark at intruders. As show
dogs, they should hold themselves with the noble bearing indicative of this fine breed. Outgoing and
self-assured, Trail's End Boxers should be comfortable in any ring whether it's breed, agility, or

puppies of her own, too! She's pictured here with our niece,

In March of 2011, we fell in love with & purchased "Merlot" - R & G
Trail's End You Had Me at Merlot from Gayann Jones of R & G
Boxers. This beautiful girl is the sweetest boxer on the planet! We
were hoping she would be a mother herself, but that wasn't meant
to be. She is spayed and enjoying life on the couch.
