About Us


Thank you for taking a moment to learn more about the story behind how Dornlea got started and where it is now.

Back in 1986 Karen Churchill and Sandy Dornes partnered together to form a hobby kennel specializing in Boxers. This kennel was formed with the goal to better the breed and to produce the highest quality boxer for show. Karen Churchill ran the kennel independently after Sandy passed away, up until about two years ago when she begun the process of passing the kennel and it's well-known name to myself, Jaque Bennett and my family.
We are close and personal friends of Karen's.

My family and I have continued the same traditions and goals as originally set in place when Dornlea began. Our small hobby kennel is located in the Tri Cities, Washington.

Keeping a relatively small number of dogs, usually between 4-5 adults, and various puppies we are going up, we breed just one or two litters a year. 

Our primary reason for breeding a litter is motivated by our desire to better the lines of the Boxer breed, for the best quality dogs for show and also for loving pets for deserving families.

We enjoy showing our dogs at various All Breed and Specialty shows across the country, and have had the good fortune to have bred and shown some noteworthy winners. With that said, our dogs remain first, and always, our friends.I'm your About section. Click to edit and tell visitors about your breeds.
