Debra Harker

Ettrick Gordon Setters 

Debra’s most memorable success was winning the Dog CC at Crufts in 2000

Involved in dogs for over 40 years

Debra became involved in dog showing whilst working at a boarding kennels before she left school.  The lady she worked for was a well-known Clumber Spaniel breeder who also had other breeds which Debra showed for her, including a Miniature Longhaired Dachshunds, Cairn Terriers and Shelties.

The couple now own 3 dogs...

Gordon Setter Paradise Final Legacy at Ettrick – Jenson

Gordon Setter Hernwood Achilles at Ettrick – Hector

Working Cocker – Sam 

The affix Ettrick is taken from Ettrick Bridge in the Borders where Debra and her husband spent their honeymoon.           

2 superb Champions!

Debra has made up two Champions in the breed - the first was her very first Gordon Setter, Sh Ch/Ir Sh Ch Hernwood Crystal Graphite. who became the first male English/Irish Champion and became top male in the breed. 

She says, “He was a stunning dog and well known for his fabulous head and fantastic movement which gained him many admirers both in the breed and with the all- rounder judges.  He certainly made an impression winning 21 CC’s and 17 RCC’s plus stakes classes including Champion Stakes and Gundog Group placings.”

The second dog Debra made up into a Champion was Sh Ch Kilnrae French Connection avec Ettrick JW who was a great great grandson of Crystal Graphite.

She says, “Wallace, as he was known, proved his worth at stud being top stud dog and producing a real stamp of type on his progeny both here and on the continent.”

Hector - the new addition’s gathering a fan club!

Hector - Hernwood Achilles - is a direct descendent of Crystal Graphite (in fact all bar one of Debra’s 7 Gordons go back to her very first Gordon) and has had a fabulous start to his career with:

  • Best Puppy in Breed and Puppy Group 4 – Birmingham National 2018
  • Best Puppy in Breed – Crufts 2018
  • Best Puppy in Breed – Gordon Setter Club of Scotland Championship Show 2018
  • Unbeaten in puppy at all the Championship shows attended (including 2 breed shows)


Hector’s first outing in Junior… 

After a fabulous puppy career Hector started his junior career at Bath Championship Show – winning not only the class, but going on to take the Reserve Dog CC!

Debra said, “It’s certainly a day to remember as it is unusual for such a young dog to take such high rewards.”

To the end of May Hector is still top puppy in the breed and Debra is naturally thrilled with his progress!

Selling CSJ came naturally

Debra says, “Although I’m one of CSJ’s smaller distributors I sell virtually a full range of their dog food.”

“All my customers think CSJ is the best food ever and their dogs look amazing on it.  They can’t understand why people would use anything else.”

Get Over! is fantastic!

Get Over! is fantastic!

Just wanted to let you know how fantastic your product "Get Over" is.

I have a golden retriever who has had very bad hip displacia in both hips for which she has had 2 successful operations. Then she had a bad limp on her left elbow, I was devastated as just spent a fortune getting her hips done only for something else to go wrong. Nothing surgical could be done it was just her bad breeding again,the elbow was inflammed and probably has arthritis even tho she is only 2 years old bless her. Your company and product was recommended to me by a friend.

I purchased "Get Over" and it said on the instructions that it may take 2 or 3 weeks for the herbs to work. Well, let me tell you in our case it took 2 days!!!!! I only need 1 spoonful on her meal once each day and she has not limped since. I cannot believe it, no tablets or vet bills - just sprinkle on these herbs and hey presto!!!

I cannot thank you enough, what a relief after 2 years of vet bills and operations and millions of tablets. She is looking and obviously feeling so good at the moment, her coat is great too.

I have just purchased my second tub and will continue to do so for the rest of her days.

Don't suppose you have got the same sort of thing for humans have you? I could do with some of the magic herbs!!!!!

Thanks again

Carol Hodder & a very well & happy Nala
